Alloy wheel changes on 2008 M50. Anyone have any experience or wisdom to share on this topic
There’s only two options I can think of, there are only a few Enginnering shops that will make wheels here in Oz, myself and @Hopper where talking to places that could possibly make M109R wheels, so they be able to hell you but be prepared to put your hand deep into your pockets!
I don’t Have any information and can’t remember the place I was talking with now, maybe @Hopper might be able to help you out...
Or just start calling Engineering places.
Another option is to Talk to JC from Mean Cycles, he should be able to help you out in getting wheels made O/S, but again be prepared to put your hand deep into your pockets!
Thanks sean, yeah was just curious and i couldnt find any anywhere, thats cool will be a long while down the track but i will definitely sketch up some designs in the meantime, seeing as they will be one of a kind if they have to be milled from scratch. In which case i dont mind spending big for that.
This could be totally impractical as I have NO EXPERTISE or EXPERIENCE in this so take it as thought only! Could you possibly transfer the Front end off an M109 from triple clamps down onto the M50? It might give you what you desire. You might, also, be able to do same for rear end. The only adaption that I could imagine here are possible mods to the bearings for the swingarm/rear shock and bearings for the triple clamps.
