Might be able to get them for cheap.

They come with shinko 705's mounted, 7000 series aluminum rims laced and trued with stainless steel spokes and nipples. 3.5x17 front wheel, 320mm brake rotor and comes with a caliper relocation bracket. 4.25x17 rear wheel also comes with a rear brake rotor already mounted.


Any chance in bolting them on, by chance? :sarcastic:

Or is it a matter of relacing them to some dr650 hubs?

Oh wow, ok... so they will NOT fit a dr650, correct?

My guess: the holes in the rims are drilled at a different angle for the KLR...

(Yes, ProCycle knows these things)

Yup, more than likely the wheels were purchased through ProCycle to begin with, hehe.

Shame about the fitment tho. I guess ill start looking for sv650 rims for a while longer, while I save my pennies for a set of warp9's...

Really appreciate the feedback, guys! :friends:

If only it were that easy. Unfortunately there are no inexpensive direct bolt on wheels for converting the DR to a SM and/or tubeless :sad:

nothing in life is easy unless you have ton of cash! - if you do, contact Procycle and order a set of Watp9's :2_thumbsup:

I'm going to attempt to install a set of cbr600 (F2) 6 spokes wheels on my DR over the next few months. I'll report back. :lurk:

Yessir, looks like ill be saving for a while.

Just priced out a new set of warp9's + tires, and with the exchange rate to canadian, its an easy breezy 1800 dollars. :hang:

sv650's are looking more and more tempting, but patience is the name of the game. Ive waited a decade to get a bike worth motarding, time is an old friend. :s_cool
