Front Wheel

I hit my front wheel and one lip is damaged... I tried to fix it with a rubber hammer but I canīt do much and here, we donīt have those wheel fixing machines. I feel the rim a little bit unbalanced.
Does anyone have one black front rim to sell... or knowīs where I can get one?
Thanks!

You might contact Blue Ridge Performance. They are in South Carolina. They specialize in the Ninja 650R, but I know they use Versys parts interchangeably with the bikes they build for racing.

You must have one tough lip to damage your rim with it
I wouldn't use a rubber hammer myself, maybe some botox

Naw, just pick on up on ebay. Watch for a couple of weeks, there will be one. Worst case you have to paint it.

Sheesh, just did a quick search. There are a few of them but boy are they proud of them! $75 - $100 is about right. Right now they're $150 up.

Just keep watching. JDROCKS might have one, he doesn't use the 17's any more.

I've got a '09 Kawasaki EX650 Ninja (ENKEI) complete front wheel on e-bay, it's used but in good shape for $190.00
Someone told me it's the same wheel as the Versys...
The new ones are $475.00 (in black...the silver ones are $100 less) and without the breakdiscs.
Now I hope PayPal works for me... last time I want to use I couldn't, a really nightmare.
Maybe I will take my damaged wheel into my bag if it fits on it... I'm traveling to your country tomorrow night.
