Just giving my XR250 a service after finding her again after I sold her 15 years ago. Mortified to find that the rear rim has split! Cracked right through!!:( Has anyone on here got a spare? Or could tell me what else would fit?

Your best bet is to buy a new rim like this

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALLOY-RI...307264?hash=item3afc054640:g:e6MAAOSw8lpZIA7j

Then buy some new spokes & nipples & rebuild the wheel. There's plenty of videos on youtoob on how to do this. It's not difficult to actually relace the wheel but more difficult to adjust the offset & trueing it.

Whatever you do don't use hagons as they did a respoke for my XR400 front wheel & it was returned to me with several loose spokes. When I pointed this out to Alf Hagons son Martin he slagged me off & shouted & swore at me from the other side of the workshop....in front of most of his workers.

Ate you still looking for a rear wheel. I have one from an XR400 if that's any use.
