Default 1988 Honda CR250 rim

     

Does anyone still sell new rear rims for a 88 Honda CR250? It is 18 X 2.15 with 36 spokes. None of the ones I find say they are compatible with the 88 model.

I went through the same thing last year when I rebuilt my 88 CR250. I'd link you to the post but since then I forgot all my login info and had to create a new account. What I ended up doing was buying a 91 CR500 rear hub off ebay, and a spoke kit and rim off rockymountainatvmc.com. It's basically a conversion from the 88 250 36 spoke wheel to the more modern 32 spoke setup. I don't know all the CR 500 years that will mesh up directly to the 88 250, but the 91 worked perfectly for me. You will also need the brake disc for the 500 hub as it mounts differently. Other than that everything else works. Hope this helps if you have no luck with finding a 36 spoke rim.

Awesome, thanks. I know I've done it before but it's been so long since I've been here...

Great info Shawn! I am working with Tom at Full Circle Racing and he thinks we can find a rim to fit from another manufacturer. If that doesn't work at least I have a proven option. Do you remember what the total cost was for the conversion?

Warp 9 rim: 94.99 (rockymountainatvmc.com)
Tusk spoke kit: 45.99 (rockymountainatvmc.com)

The hub may have been a lucky find, complete with disc and very useable steel sprocket, 25.15 plus 19.37 shipping. (ebay)

All in all it set me back 185.50.

I'd be inclined, if I were you, to go ahead with the conversion vs finding another 36 spoke rim. It will make all your future repairs much easier as I could not find a 36 spoke kit anywhere either. Whatever route you choose, though, good luck!!

Update...I bought a 1820KY 36 hole rim from pro wheel and it fit like a glove! Although it is not listed for the 88 CR250, it fits. Spokes are still available from Honda.

Default 1988 Cr125

Hi guys,

Same Problem,
The Cr125,250 & 500 have the same hub in 88. Specs(E1 BLACK - 20MM AXLE - BRG TO BRG 138.5MM - ROTOR OD 220MM ID 122MM - BOLT CIRCLE 6 ON 143MM - SPROCKET BOLT CIRCLE 6 ON 153MM - 36 SPOKES - FITS 87-88 CR125 CR250 CR500 42601-KS6-700ZA 1988 )

Currently have a usable hub 36 hole but would need spokes and rim. (gold- 18 or 19 inch rim- spokes depending on size)

After reading some of the solutions posted above.

Do you know if there would be any issues swapping the whole hub and wheel for a newer year 32 hole set up? might save me some trouble

It seems as though the 88 cr125 had a different swing arm then any other year. Not sure how much that makes a difference with the rear hub fitting up.

Any help
thank

I would stick with the factory style 18 inch rim. You can still buy spokes from Honda, but at $3.61 from Partzilla that adds up to $130 plus shipping. You may be better off to find a used wheel on ebay or a m/c scrap yard. You can try this guy. MrSuperSport@yahoo.com or 208-771-0882

You may be able to swap the whole wheel assembly, but you may run into issues with wheel spacers and axle sizes. Check out the following links:

Honda CR125 Bike ID
Honda CR 250 ENGINE
Honda CR 450

That's the most complete source of cross-reference info I'm aware of. You can also go to partsfish.com and find the OEM part number, then search for it and and cross-reference it that way.
