So I have:

Will the Aprilia wheels fit the Funduro?

Looking for a second set.
Now here's an idea!
Those who know me know that I work part-time for a charity that trains members of the public to take part in whale and dolphin surveys at sea. We also train wildlife officers for the ferries and do educational talks around the country.
I've spent a lot of time at...
Hi, got a 95 funduro which is very clean. Done less than 16k, love the bike to bits, but the wheels let it down as in the rims look scratched. Is there any way to clean them up or do i need new rims.Many thanks John.
after taking the F650 off roading for a bit on the weekend...i am looking to get a second set of wheels so that i can fit some proper off road tyres on them and switch the wheels whenever i feel the need to go mud-plugging again...
so if anyone have a set for a 96 Funduro please let me...
I am thinking of using Alf Hagon to re-rim my front wheel to either a 17",18" or 19" rim, I favour the 17 or 18 but bit concerned as to how it will affect the ride height, i know it will turn in much quicker but thought I would ask if anyone has done this before and their thoughts.
This may sound like a strange topic, but having test ridden both the new F800GS and the F650GS and decided that the F650GS was a better bet for me, I want to find out if there is anyhere out there which could sort out a set of good spoke wheels (gold or Black rims) to fit the bike. Any...
I have had my bike off the road for a couple of months, taking the opportunity to give her a damm good clean!.
Looking generally quite good now with some re-painted bits and everything spotless - except both wheels.
Both wheels suffer from the usual marks and pitting. Is there anything...
At last I am getting the Dakar out of mothballs and back into regular use. Love the handling but suffer from the height of the bike - hence going to get Koubalinks - using planks to stand on as a trial, a 2 inches lower would be great, 1 inch acceptable.
My question is about wheels as...
Do you think the TT stand will work with the 17" wheels on my Dakar.
I could just buy one, but it could turn out a nightmare to get the bike up onto it as the overall height of the bike is going to be lower with the new wheels??? mmm?
any thoughts on the subject appreciated
This may be a hard question to answer, but it would be a very nice upgrade if they could be made to fit.
The fronts would seem most likely if the discs lined up. The rear would definitely be a big question mark with the belt drive and uni-swing arm. But what an upgrade if they could fit with...
$60, but you have to make sure rim true and spokes adjusted for the long haul. Seems great for sturdiness of spoked steel rims and convenience of tubeless tires.
I have tried various products for wheel cleaning and found some better than others. I just got a small steam cleaner from Roert Dyas for ?15
It is absolutly great for this. you can get the steam jet into every nook and around the spokes etc..
also around the engine, the steam is not so hot as...
(Now Sold)Just a short thank you to all who enquired about these in the for sale section .
I hope all of those who were on the list for as a possible buyer have got a PM or an E-mail from me telling that they have found a new home.
Should I have missed anybody please this was not on purpose and...
Has anyone any experience of fitting Talon wheels to a GS (Dakar). I want to fit an 18" wheel to the rear to give me more tyre choice for off roading and am hoping to shave a bit of weight off. Rather that simply having the exisitng wheel rebuilt with an 18" rim, I was thinking about...
