hi everyone,Im trying for a couple of months now to find a rear rim with dimensions 17'x4.50' or 4.25 with 40 holes.Any idea of what bike has a simular rim like that?

Thank you all.

Look for any specialist Supermotard models that are running either 160/60-17 or 170/60-17 (170/55-17 is common also) as these will almost certainly use this size. Failaing that, most rim places can lace you up a new wheel from a supplied hub if you already have one, and know what offset you require

hi I found some rims from SM but it is difficult to find with 40 holes,the most rims here are 36 holes and I have a hub from gl 1100 with 40 holes,so there is only one solution,to take the hub to a craftsman and fill the holes with melted aluminium and open new 36 holes and fit any rim I want or I dont know what else.I also found a rear tyre 150x60x17 and it fit on the swingarm with out any mod like Melchiro does which is a very good way to enlarge the space among the swingarm to fit 160 or even 170
