Standard Rear Rim size on the RD07 is 17" x 3.0"

We offer Excel rims at 17" x 3.5" as Excel do not offer 17" x 3.0" in a 32 spoke hole pattern.:thumbup:

Yes - standard 140/80 R17 tyre will fit the 3.5" Excel just fine :thumbright:

They've been Tangoe'd ;)

Gold Excels - Golder than the original DID's and a lot longer-lasting by all accounts!

I take it that you have silver / chrome rims?

Yup - they're Excel Gold Rims we supplied for a London to Cape Town trip




We also have them in Silver - here's a set we provided for Monty's AT for his Indonesian Expedition :thumbup:


And Black - on Ujeni's 'one off' Twin in California :D


Excel rims - the best you can fit to your Africa Twin :D

i'm guessing you may start to like them & you can get a 150 on the rear.

just a word of warning, i know of 4 rims that were powder coated.... after a short while the bearings dont have that tight fit. Maybe get them to blast it clean, but i would have the hub sprayed, not put in an oven. Just my opinion.
