Guessing you mean new wheels...how do plan on doing this?


I can see installing a diffrent front end, but where are you going to find a rear end that matches up with the stock driveshaft????

hmmm good point on the rear.... didnt quite think that one through.... well i did mean the rim... i may refer to things differently... i hear wheel and im thinkin the whole thing tire and all... but yeah i figure someone here would know if there was a set that would work with shaft drive and all......

I'd like to switch the rear to one with the disc brake rather than the drum....probably not what you're after though huh?

Well, the '97 Eliminator 600 uses the same rubber damper & hub coupling, and it would appear the same brake assembly on it's rear wheel, but I have no clue if the rim would work. But, the 600 rim is also a 15", so it's no larger.

If you do find something that'll work, let us know!

Rim upgrade

Well I've thought about having them chromed in order to customize my bike further. Just haven't researched the cost yet and have other priorities at this time. Any thoughts?
