oooOOOpps!

Driving down the road not paying attention, I barley missed a rock the size of a softball with the front tire and it caught the back tired..... Could not have happen at a better time.. Summer is here and no money for a new rim and tire right now. lol

Re: oooOOOpps!

Hit up EBay and craigslist. See if you can find a deal. Also, check some used motorcycle parts yards. Most damage is front end damage. So you might find a sweet deal on a rear rim.

eBay Motors: 2002 HONDA CBR F4i / 929 /954 RR FRONT & REAR WHEELTIRE (item 160231911572 end time Apr-29-08 14:46:58 PDT)

both rims, tires good, rear sprocket, buy them both and then sell what you dont need, lot cheaper to buy that way than separate.

The question is is it the 5.5" inch f4i rear or the 6" 929/954 rear.

You can mount a 190 on the 5.5" but it does affect the profile of the tire.

Re: oooOOOpps!

Yeah, I'd make sure to ask a question on that. The rear rim for an F4i looks identical to the 929/954 rim but it is 5.5" not 6.0"

I'd make sure to just ask, "is this the 5.5" rear or 6.0" rear?" If you phrase it like, "I need the 6.0" rear to fit my 954," he'll probably tell you what you want to hear no matter what the truth is. If you say you're looking for the 5.5" he'll probably say it's the 5.5" if you tell him you are looking for the 6.0" he'll probably tell you it is the 6.0".

Re: oooOOOpps!

Don't take it to motorcycle shop, you want to find a reputable rim repair shop that is close by. They should be able to fix that for under $50.
