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?
1988 rim stamped J18 X 1.85. 587 DOT
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.
