so I own both a crf1000 and rd07a. My crf1000 is having its wheels replaced under warranty due to spoke errosion. Question I have is could the old wheels be respoked to the rd07a hub as I love the gold wheels? Obviously assuming that the dealer will sell me the old wheels
I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.

Hope everyone is well, I'm looking to get a spare set of rims for my RD03 so I could have a set with 80/20 tires and a set of full knobbly tires on. Could anyone help decode the stamping on the rim:

Good Day All,
I'm rebuilding an 85 XL350r.
The airbox was a pain to remove but I got it removed. Had the same issue with my 90s CR 250, seems Honda doesn't want us touching

Just out of interest.
I've always pronounced it "Vigor", with a short "i" as in "pig".
Just recently I've spoken to a couple of people who pronounced it "Veegor", with a long "e" as in "sheep".
Then the other day one bloke said "Vygor" with a long "i" as in "wine"
Any votes one way or the other?
