    Africa Twin
    My XRV650 RD03 needs its wheels replaced. It seems it was stored outside on grass for about 17 years. I have managed to get a Transalp 21" front in good condition and a ST1000 Pan European front left hand brake disk. Would a Dominator rear wheel fit? Good Dominator rear wheels are cheaper and...
