- Two Pro Wheel rims, Pro Wheel spokes and nipples for two complete wheels.
Purchased wheel and spoke kit for a 2009 CRF450X. The pro wheels were heavier than stockers by approx. .2lbs each. The spokes are considerably heavier/thicker than stock. The rear wheel/spoke mounted to my hub very easily and trued up well. The front wheel/spoke kit required drilling of the hub, which I really don't like as I'm sure I'm not as accurate with a drill as the factory machining is. The front trued up fine. The spoke nipples are stainless but for some reason the rears spoke nipples have quite a coarse thread on them, which, again, I did not like. The front spoke nipples appeared to be the same pitch as the stock nipples thread. Have ridden desert and single track approx. 100 miles and no issues, spokes have stayed tight. Hope this helps!
Not sure what the other people are talking about with alleged problems with pro wheels. If the guy had a problem, then why keep buying them, unless he agrees that he has no idea how to maintain them. Seems obvious from the few negative posts. I have three race bikes with pro wheels. Never any issues. Also, team Babbitt's doesn't seem to have a problem with them (especially considering that they hold several championships......with pro wheels on the bikes). Finally, how many other wheel manufacturers have warranties on the wheels? None, except pro wheel, talk about standing behind their product if there was ever a manufacture defect.
I've had a complete set of pro wheels and I've had nothing but trouble with them couldn't keep the spokes tight then all of a sudden wheel bearings kept shattering sent the wheel to the factor the owner looked at the hub and said was good when i got it back shattered the bearing again so i look in the hub and it was all scared up and the owner would no help me at all the wheels was not even a year old only had 15 hours on them
I had these on my 250f for a few years. One of my rims broke at the weld with less than ten hours. They replaced it.
The spokes never set in. They came loose after every moto and my wheels went out of true extremely fast. I was unable to make them better.
I now have Excel wheels on a Yz250 and they do not come loose. Spend the extra and get quality.
These spokes are made of 304 stainless steel. which is much stronger than oem and even the heavy excel spokes. Because they are made of more durable and stronger stainless steel they can be thinner to save weight, were as excels are thinker because they use low quality stainless steel and have to make them thicker to compensate for the lower quality stainless steel. I have ran these in my race bikes for years with no problem, the only reason why I broke these spokes is because I let them get to loose which is not the spokes fault it was my fault. these are great for the price. buy with confident!!
The Pro Wheel combo comes with the smallest guage spokes on the market. They are extremely weak and bend and break like crazy. Especially if you race go with EXCELS there more expensive but it will save yourself time and money. It will also save you alot of frustration breaking spokes is a pain.
