Bent rim... Wheels for the FZ-07?

Recommended Posts

hugson2wheels
Heya gang... I recently bent my rear wheel only on one side from a pothole during a medium speed turn. I'm not loosing any air and I was able to repair it with a mallet.
 
Two questions please...
 
I'm thinking of replacing the rim but I would like to replace it with a different color (red). Does anyone make wheels for the FZ-07? Or does any other model yamaha wheel fit on the FZ-07 (as in, being able to swap the sprocket and brake disk onto another yamaha's rim)
 
Secondly. Should I just keep the original rim I repaired? I was able to get it back to 90% and never lost air.
 
Thanks!

I have no idea what might or might not interchange, sorry. But, don't use a repaired aluminum wheel.   TOOOO important to leave to the luck of the bend/rebend/failure spirits! I suspect you can probably find a used original online if you don't wish to splurge for a new (my recommendation--new, that is). 
 
If you want a different color, have one painted or powder-coated to suit. All the best.

I reckon the fz09 wheels are the same, at least they look identical.

The material on these rims are soft, no diff between FZ09 or FZ07 same crappy soft material. Not any options but OEM for FZ

That would be called aluminum, lol.  But seriously, I just changed the tires on my FZ07 wheels and they actually felt quite rigid as I was prying quite hard on the wheels with the tire irons to get the tires off and then the new ones on.  :)

I use a hack saw and then a 20 lb rubber mallet and soak the tire in oil to beat them suckers on. Its worser trying to put a 16in tire on that 17 inc rim, you have to use a acetiline tourch to get the wheel to bend into shape (rofl)
