Greetings from Bangkok 🙂

I normally live in CA USA. Now took on a contract here in Thailand. I had many bikes over the years. Bikes are on the steep side tag wise in Thailand. Anyway I got a 2010 Versys 650 for 2 years now and mechanically speaking that engine is bullet proof! Some of the roads where I live are more like Baja than anything else lol.
I need to find some hubs to get some spoked wheels built. 19” front and 17 “ rear.
Anyone has an idea where I could get those ?? My cast wheels are not too happy on these roads... got few dents here and there on the rims. If anyone has some info please share thanks 🙂 God Speed !

Welcome! Good for you on taking a position abroad for a few years. Not everyone can pick up and live in a foreign country. Once you have full access to the site. Use the search option and type in keywords such as "Spoke Wheels or rims". A bunch of threads will come up for your reading pleasure. Or someone will chime in. Good luck.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

aboard!

Suggest you don't "air-down" w/ the OEM cast wheels to protect them from damage (and I run 36PSI F, 42 PSI R) on mine.
