XR350R Larger Rear Wheel Swap

Is there a way to swap my rear wheel to a 19"? It is a 17" now.

Re: XR350R Larger Rear Wheel Swap

I dont believe so as the distance between the swingarm sides and the tires is fairly close as it is. If you can move your 17" tire forward without it rubbing then you can possibly fit a 19". I used to have a 1985 XR350R. What a great bike. Was my first bike ever.

How does it feel to be beaten by a sewing machine?

if you respoke the wheel you might be able to go to a 18", but then again clearance issues. why do you want to do this?

Re: XR350R Larger Rear Wheel Swap

It is a great bike! I love the thing more every time I ride it. Super hill climbing torque, great handling, and a good saddle that keeps me on the bike on steep hills. Not like those narrow, flat 2x4 seats on the new ones.

The reason I ask is because of the small selection of tires for a 17" rear. There are lots of 'em for 19". But, then there's the gearing issue with a larger diameter tire. Maybe it's not worth it.

If anyone knows of another bike like this for sale, I have a friend who wants mine real bad.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Ahh leave the 17" rear rim alone!!!

I had a XL600 for years and had no problems finding rear tires. Sure they dont make the lastest and greatest tire treads in 17"s but WHO cares???

Also, I belive the height's of 17"s and 19"s are the same, the 19's just are a lower profile, for less sidewall deflection.

THats why they put the 18 on the enduros-more bump absorbtion. 18 are wider also. 120-100-18 compare to 110-90-19
