    Good day,



    Does anyone know the rear rim spoke count on the TW200? I'm going to use a 2010 model as an example, but I'm assuming they all have the same size rear rim.



    Is it 36 spoke or 32 spoke or different?



    Thanks,

    32. What are you up to? lol.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    That is the answer I was looking for! 32 is what I need.



    I'm working on a project that I need a wide 14" rim with a 32 spoke count. This is of course, very uncommon, but so is the TW200, so this will be perfect.



    I'll post back with photos when i'm done.



    Thanks for the quick reply,

    No problem. Bear in mind that's a steel rim and weighs 35 lbs. with a TW tire mounted, if weight's a factor on your project.

    Thanks. Weight is a factor, but finding another 4.50x14" rim is obviously near impossible except for the TW200 :-) I'd settle for a 3.50x14", but there is not a single other spoke rim on any production bike I can find in this size or close to other than the TW200.



    I'm going to run a 160/60R14 on mine, not the TW's 180/80R14 so it should be a bit lighter. This tire is off a suzuki burgman 650.



    According to the 2011 Yamaha.ca website, the TW200 has "Lightweight, aluminum alloy front and rear rims are fitted with street-legal, dual purpose tires."

    Perhaps the older models have the steel rear rim...?



    Looking at photos of the 2006 and 2007 model, they have an aluminum colored rim (not black like the new models). This is what I'm going to try and find.

    Nope. They're all painted steel to this day.

    Crap. Why would the Yamaha site be incorrect? Is the front rim alloy?

    Funny. I just searched google and found 10+ sites, and they all say the TW200 has a aluminum front/rear rim. This includes the OFFICIAL Yamaha site!



    Oh well, must be a detail that only the hardcore guys catch. Thanks for letting me know about this. I will still make it work, but its very good to know as I would otherwise be very surprised when it showed up.



    Does anyone, perhaps in Japan, make an Aluminum aftermarket version of this rear rim?



    Thanks,

    I also just checked stock/pricing on the TW200 rear tire and if I choose a 2006 model (with aluminum colored rear rim) and there is only 1 in stock in the entire USA! Plus, its also about $330!



    The 2008-2010 rim is a different part number, its black, and has good stock from what I can tell, and it also costs $100 less at approx $200 retail.



    Is there any difference between the rims other than color? I'd like silver, but it would be much cheaper if I had it sandblasted and powder coated silver, plus it would probably stand up better than the OEM paint.



    Did any of the other year TW200's have aluminum colored rims other than the 2006-2007's?
