KTM 200 EXC 2001:D
Would wheels off other models or year fit this bike?:dozey:
Mine are tarnished with rusty looking spokes especially the rear one.:hmh:
Or would i just be better off replacing the spokes one at a time?:confused:

Best to buy a new wheel - so long as you sell me your old rear one cheap :D

wheels are pretty interchangeable across all similar KTMs & Husabergs

I've just looked into replacing my rear but came to the conclusion replacing the spokes (don't bother trying to unscrew them - just angle grind through them a couple at a time ) was a much cheaper option if your rims are good. I got a shiny new polished set for £68 delivered. Central Wheel Components Limited

Spoke sets from me in stainless are £55 per wheel.

The rims on the early bikes are DiD and if looked after are good rims just as good as excels, many people didnt so are prone to corrosion on the inside of the rim and due to the age of the rims now many have rotted through if they havent been looked after.

The early rear hubs were prone to fracturing if you didnt keep a good check on the bearings, i have replaced several colapsed wheels due to early rear hub failiures due to siezed bearings.
