WTD: Front wheel for VTR250

  1. As detailed in the Vic TNMR thread, I've stuffed the front wheel on my '03 VTR 250 by pushing the lip of the rim out. I'm investigating the possibility of having it re-rolled, but I'd rather get a replacement and not have to worry about it cracking, etc. I called Peter Stevens to get a ball park quote to work from and they've told me that a new wheel is $712, which I'm not prepared to pay.

    So, I'm after the front wheel from a VTR 250. I'd prefer a gold one, but if I can't get one, I'll take another colour for the right price.
  2. $712 for what's essentially 1/5th, shall we say, of your bike seems reasonable, lol. Best of luck either way. Maybe look into aftermarket or alternate model options?
  3. wreckers.
    and whatever they offer, the haggle.
    nothing is ever set in stone.

    sorry to say i dont have a spare wheel laying about.
    contrary to popular believe, i dont actually have any spare parts :oops:
