    Hello Gents
    Does anyone have available or know where I can source a non-damaged front wheel for the latest gen XR?

    Many thanks

    Baring in mind it’s the first thing that gets damaged in an off, short of coming across a bike that has been stolen and sold for parts the cheapest option is probably a Dymag.

    Cheers mate,
    I was also hoping someone might have put forged or carbon wheels and have an OEM front lying around willing to sell.
    Drove through a pot hole and it bent the OEM rim. What a load of bollo**s

    you may want to confirm, but I am pretty sure that the cast wheels on the newest Gen R/RR/XR are the same

    Part 36318389055 was found on the following vehicles:
    K67 (S 1000 RR)   (02/2018 — 12/2019)
    K69 (S 1000 XR)   (12/2018 — 11/2019)

    Some bent rims can be straightened, but find a pro with the right equipment for doing it.

    I go not think so, I think that is a GEN 1.

    This might sound random but would  front marchesini from a ducati V4 S fit?

    They can...I had one straightened years ago, the mistake i made was being around when they did it, because it involves a very experienced guy with a very big hammer, but in fairness he did straighten it without a mark on it.

    If money is an issue i’d be tempted to try a gen1 option or RR, i’d Be be very surprised if they didn’t fit, design maybe different but basic fitting would be similar.

    No, No, No, a guy with a very big hammer, not matter how experienced, is NOT what I had in mind (yes, I am cringing). In this day and age, I would not use such low tech methods except in extremis.

    I mean guys with machines like this: http://www.zetamak.com/detay_en_39_rsm2400mc-rsm2600mc-rsm2800mc%3Cbr%3Emoto-rim-straightening-machine.html.

    There are also guys who have built their own machines like https://www.webbikeworld.com/straightening-motorcycle-wheels/ and (maybe?) http://www.thewheelwarehouse.com/services/motorcycle-wheel-and-rim-repair/

    Here's a video showing the process; notice there is no hammer involved and there is a micrometer involved the whole time.

    I've used services like this twice, though both times were more than a decade back. The first time, the wheel came back flawless and perfect; the second time they returned the wheel unrepaired saying it was too bent to be repaired.
