It looks like I need a new rim after my pothole encounter from last week. I have a 2013 650 and am looking for a rim that isn't bent. What have you got?

Check on Ebay - the Ninja 650 uses the same rims as does the ER6N.

BUT I would take your rim to someone that straightens rims for their opinion. I've had car "mag" wheels straightened.

When I looked into having a damaged rim fixed it was cheaper to purchase a used one on EBay. +1 on other Kawasaki 650 models using the same rim. I purchased a Ninja 650 rim on Ebay for an exact fit.

Is there a specific year range that fits? Do they all fit?

I have called a few places already to see if they fix rims and even the shop I bought the bike from and no one has any advice other than to buy a new wheel.

Ebay brand new 138 bucks with bearings for matte black and then I painted to my color. Chinese made fit, finish, and true Ness were perfect.

These guys did a great job on my Triumph Tiger 1050 after it encountered a nasty crater new Mt St.Helens. They use heat, not just pressure and hammering, so the aluminum is not hardened and made brittle. I'd give them a consideration.
