Wheel for TTR230

Long story short, a mate of mines' Son has saved his butt off to buy a bigger bike, he found one suitable for their farm and his riding style (06-TTR230) and bought it, got it home and the rear wheel is wobbly and untrue. So off to the regional Yamaha dealer and has been quoted over $600 to fix, which he or his Dad don't have right now (separation/family issues). Apparently the hub is flogged out, so we are desperately after options for him the kid is mildly Autistic and it has devastated him as he has been looking forward to going to the Urbenville trail ride for ages, so I am going to move mountains if I can for them, and of course my first port of call is the wealth of knowledge that is DBW, so fire away good people.

I have a complete rear wheel and brake assembly off an 87 TT350 sitting in my shed. If it can be used you're welcome to it.

Thanks Heaps Don that is generous as Mate, I'll have a gander at the parts lists so if they are anything alike.

Will do, I had a look on parts listings, look very similar but numbering systems have changed dramatically over the years. The wheel is in another town ATM, but we will grab some measurements asap.

again thanks Don,
and to the other bloke who knows whom he is, your generous offer proves yet again you are a champion.

I just realised that my TT was a 97, not 87. The wheel is probably still the same anyway. Sorry to confuse.

Spokes aren't checked/tightend so the wheel wobbles and wears out the hub spoke holes..600 sounds about right.Been there,done that.

exactly what happened, except apparently the seller tightened the spokes up against the elongated holes and it survived the pre-sale check, then the young bloke and his dad have got, done the three hour trip home, young bloke goes for a quick ride and it starts wobbling, badly, enough to rub and catch on stuff.
And yes $600 is a correct price for new hub and relace etc, no issues there, just the young bloke and his Dad are a bit skint, so his Dad is feeling pretty bad about it....
I assured his Dad we can fix it before the Urbenville ride
Thanks Don will recheck it.
