Saw it on a map, had to go for a look. It's what I call ride planning
For Oz & NZ 900 owners contemplating changing their front sprocket, a 36mm deep impact socket is available from Supacheap. Under $20 from memory.
Selling my 1992 TDM 850 if anyone is interested. Listed on here for now: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/1992-yamaha-tdm-850.1316057/ then ebay.
The TDM posted above was Posted on ebay last Sunday, will end Sunday 10-JUN-2018. I started it at $0.99 with no reserve so I guess we will see what it goes for. Message me with any questions:

Alex, , what did it sell for? ?
Anybody try a 19" wheel in the front of 850/900 ?
$960... which seemed kinda low to me, but it did have a few issues and I listed them all. I started it at $0.01 with no reserve and I feel that that usually causes them to go for what they are actually worth. Not upset though, I think it went to a great buyer, he emailed me and said he had already fixed the electrical issue that I had spent years trying to figure out haha
Can't recall anybody doing this. A few go for 17".
Would make tyre choice much better. Try Carpe TDM forum.
I did look into it, i was unable to find anything definite as to what wheels would be close in terms of fitment.
Then i stumbled upon the 'made for the bike' wire wheels i have now and forgot about it
RC, where have you got your wheel made and what was the approximate cost if I may ask? They look supercool.
Hey Oyabun, the wheels were from a company in germany called Wiwo. Akront rims on custom machined billet hubs made to TDM oem dimensions so they slot straight on. I literally stole them on ebay for £200.00, they needed a bit of work, new spokes and powder coating but otherwise they were in excellent condition. Originally intended for the mk1 tdm as the hubs are stamped 1994. Reckon they are worth at least £1K to the right person, they are staying on the bike however
I've not been able to find out a lot of information regarding Wiwo, other than they have long since gone the way of the dodo and there's very little info on the web regarding them, what info there is seems to hold wiwo in very high regard and they seem to command very high prices!
That's really literally stealing. Good find.
That is one tasty TDM, just like mine, but tasty. Conservatively and very effectively farkled rc mad, if I may say.
How does it go on the loose, gravel? I'm constantly surprised at how secure the standard 18" is on gravel. A recent ride on a beemer with 19" front had a few startling front end tucks which my TDM does not do.
Thanks Harvey, I was lucky and bought it mostly as it sits, I added the Aluminium sump guard, engine bars, Panniers and exhaust. It's a 18 inch front wheel, so it handles the same as with the stock wheels, there's not much different in wheel weight due to the hubs which are solid chunks of aluminium.
An 18” 90 series tire will get it done too. A post on it from some years back.
Nice looking wheels and great find.
So my TDM has been sitting quiet for a good few years and bleeding from the forks. Started like a dream after 13 months. No hesitation and then got a good new dose of fuel.
But its time to spend .
Shes worth it Gateman.
Mine has been resting for 6 months due to heath reasons, but going for my first ride on 22nd. Whoohoo!

So in the time off the TDM Ive run the wheels off a second hand ST1300 154000 in under 4 years and I had that awful zt660r .
So May last year I bought a low milage, second hand XTZ1200Es with 7000ks.
Its got 25700ks just now.
But the TDM has been sitting quiet for a bit to long.
