2015-2017 XR front wheel take off
« on: August 24, 2018, 02:36:29 PM »
Looking for a 2015-2017 XR front wheel take off to complete my XCx conversion. If you see any for sale, drop me a note. Will need to be shipped stateside. I have been quoted $600/new shipped here but I have time to shop  :001:

OK guys .. What's a used front wheel worth? A brand new 19" front wheel # T2005016 (all internals installed) can be had new from several vendors  stateside for approx $600. A used one from a salvage dealer in FL is listed at $619 (!) and I offered $375. They declined, saying too low. No reply back from them with a realistic cost. They say in great condition with zero damage/straight. OK, maybe I did offer low, but how much is a used take off wheel worth when a brand spanking new one can be had for around $600? $400, 450, 475 ?? I know I'd spend the extra $100 on brand new/warrantied wheel. Thoughts?

Seems expensive

Here, you'd be looking at 250 ($300)for a used one, may be worth investigating shipping charges?

Shipping cost kills World of Triumph. About $50 more expensive than buying stateside. Best the salvage vendor would do is $499/shipped. I'd buy new for $100 more. Search continues..

Did they remove the tax from the cost?
16.67% of the price they quote on the website is VAT (value added tax) only collectable across the EU

I know a lot of the stateside guys on the KTM forum buy in the UK from Fowlers, maybe they're more clued up on international sales?

That price did exclude VAT. I do have a request in to Fowler's. Thanks

Used fronts are always going to be both more scarce and more in demand, as bikes don't tend to reverse into objects at speed.
