    Compatible Wheels

    Hi, I have a 2014 Tiger 1050 sport with a slightly dinged front rim. I can probably get it repaired  but it's a hassle. Finding one from the wreckers is virtually impossible in Australia and new replacements cost the GDP of a small nation.
    My question is would anyone know if any other manufacturers have compatible rims without needing major mods.
    Cheers Nick

    unless someone has done it it's unlikely anyone will know,
    anything even Triumph will likely require 'spacers or mods' to fit, trouble is the Tiger is not based on a current model as it's now obsolete,
    options will probably be from Street or Speed triple,
    '08 1050 gone, 2017 KTM 1290S gone, now '94 ZZR1100D back to old times (temporarily)

    I've been watching a few YouTube videos about building Super Moto bikes and they seem to be able to order built wheels from a number of sources. Some truly gorgeous offerings with seemingly custom hubs and rims in all sorts of configurations including multiple discs for stunting. I assume the better guys would have links in the video comments, but I've not looked as I'm using my Apple TV, not a PC.

    I also have no doubt that they are a country GDP per wheel and a treasury bond per custom request.

    The price of a used TS1050 front wheel here is 250-350.
    If your wheel is only slightly dinged it can be repaired and painted for less :156:
