URGENT - Rims on XT 600 Tenere
« on: November 17, 2020, 08:56:07 am »
Hi Guys

My Tenere ( OK my son's Tenere, he hijacked it from me) has a bumpety pump in the front rim. I had the 2 rims sprayed a while back, but that also isnt the success story of my life, the rims are chipping badly.

1) Is there a place where I can send the rims to have them straightened/anodised/restored ?

2) Or are there aftermarket alternatives available in this sizes, I would obviously like to keep them gold/bronze?

3) Anyone has rims for sale, or know of rims for sale??

THANKS..........this need to be sorted ASAP.

I can get you a golden Excel rim in 21x1.6" (should be the correct size). But the color might not match the original rear rim 100% because the anodizing fades slightly over time. You will most likely also have to get new spokes from Yamaha (around 2 grand for the per wheel/set) Unless the spokes are not rusted solid and can be re-used.
Please contact me if you need more advice.
