the microfiche lists the rear rim as

42701-MAY-013 RIM, RR. WHEEL (2.15X17)

2.15 rear rim -- surely it's wider than that? I thought it was a 3.0 or 3.5 :confused:

Sounds about right. That is the measurement between the inner vertical faces of where the tyre beads sit so the actual rim itself is wider than that. It's also 32 spoke which can make getting a replacement slightly interesting.

Sorry, stand corrected. I've been looking at far too may XR rims recently. Airwolf is correct and the fiche is wrong. RD04's were slightly narrower I believe 2.75 maybe?

yes indeed; a close look at the rim (where I should have started :rolleyes:), and it's stamped 17 x MT3.00

wonder what else on the fiches is wrong..?
