    Bent rear rim with little options?

    My rear rim on my 90 tw 200 is bent and needs replaced. I can find the spoke kit but looking for a custom 4.50-14 rim to rebuild it. Any help out there. Aloha

    I am not sure if there is an alternate direct replacement rim available due to the unusual spoke count (32) of the TW rear rim. I seem to remember someone mentioning that they found a KTM rim that would work, but I don't know model bike that it was from.

    Good luck and let us know if your search is successful.

    If you settle for a used wheel assy. I am looking for a hub only to do a atv wheel conversion, might help dilute your cost on the replacement.

    May I ask how it bent and how bad it is? I bent mine when I got hamfisted during tire removal. I was able to repair it with a torch, blocks, and a hammer. Mine was several bends on the lip about the size of a tire spoon. Cheers

    Pretty bad bend with a few bent spokes to boot. Just hoping someone makes a rear anodized rim so I can upgrade it when I put new tires on her.

    If you don't find what you're looking for, I can recommend this company. They saved my front wheel on my NC700X.

    I researched TWs and they only made two stock rear rims. 87-02 94445-144479-00 or 03-18 -14605-00 which is black. I called dubya usa in California and inquired about a 4.50-14 32 spoke rear rim but have not heard back from Paul. P.S. dubyausa.com was formally White Bros.
