I will keep the stock wheels.

New wheels, 19/17 for dual sport, using existing brakes, with stock KTM hubs, cush on the rear, Excel rims. Could you also give me a cost to upgrade to billet hubs.

roughly the billet set-up including sprocket carrier ends up circa $500 more..includes your choice of hub colors

the oem trick wheels are circa $1700-1800 depending on color...add extra for sealing....OBTW,,the last 6 months have us fine tuning and prepping the Excel rims a little more ...the last year or so we noticed that the finish on the inside had more aggressive serrations on the lips ,,,divots where the rim was welded together,,clearly someone else is building these rims we have traced real slow leaks to these areas which we prep ,,leaks are zero now,,,seems to be working...
