Good Morning All

My front rim is no longer round. One to many hard knock off road. I need to replace the rim, I am based in Cape Town south africa and cant seem to find options. Any ideas where I can come right with a rim?

Cheers

You should be able to get one from BMW. For instance, like this from Max BMW: http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51734&rnd=12082016

Here in the US, there are a number of aftermarket wheel/rim options, like Woody's Wheel Work: http://www.woodyswheelworks.com/.

Thanks, But BMW want to charge for the complete hub, wheel and spokes. Adds up to R 20k. Bit crazy considering all I need is the Rim. I have seen the rim for the R800gs is also 21inch and sells for R 2k. There has to be another solution? We need a woodys wheel works in south africa

Are you looking for tubeless? That limits selection.

If type type are OK, there are lots of options. I have an Excel rim on my front. I'm sure you could find someone in South Africa who could lace it up.

Or if your rim isn't too bent up, a decent shop should be able to unlace it, straighten it, and relace.

Tubed is fine, did you use your existing hub?

Hi, I remember that there was a group of Hp2 owners in SA that bought an after market rim and built it with the oem hub. Somewhere from Holland. The site I read it was wilddog. I think you can find info there. If you find anything, tell us also.. Thanks

Outdoors44 - have you found a solution to the bent rim? I also have a slightly dented front rim and have been running a tube for some time now, but now I have stripped two threads where the brake rotor attaches to the hub. I have requested a quote from BMW for a complete wheel, but this is expensive, and have also requested a quote from Woody's Wheel Works USA - awaiting on both quotes which I will not receive until after Easter. Would like to know what options I have available.

Subsequent to my post above, I came across this rim, which is OEM BMW X-Spoke style, PN: 36311458444, and is for R100GS, R100GS PD, etc. Link to BMW Dealer in the USA, although your local BMW Dealer may be able to source?

I have a set of Motard wheels, so if this rim is available in Australia, I will consider purchasing and lacing to my motard hub.

Good Morning bwanainoz

I used the rim of the R100gs PD / R80gs PD that was a fraction of the price. I laced it up to the BMW HP2E Hub without any problem. It is exactly the same rim with the exception of colour. But I changed mine to red anyway. I did need to replace some spokes, nuts and grub screws as some of them had seized into place. Good Luck


Sorry for the delayed response.

Thanks for the reply. I will obtain one of the R100GS PD rims. Is the red colour powder coating? Cheers Noel

Hi Noel,
The rim is aluminium so you can do Anodising or powder coating. I opted for a 2 k paint. Its very durable and easy to touch up.
