Hey everyone,

I got these along with a Kawi KZ440 that I bought a few months ago. They look like they'd fit the KZ, but the rear rim has a disc where my KZ wheel has drum. So, I'm trying to figure out what these came off of and what they might fit. I'll either keep 'em and sell my existing KZ wheels or put these up for sale.

Pics below. The one rim reads Asahi 19x1.85. The other (with the disc) reads 18x2.15. Any and all info is appreciated...thanks!

OK, I've been doing some research and these look alot like Yamaha XS wheels. Just want to know if they are for sure. Any way to figure it out? I've seen similar wheels on XS 650 and XS 1000. Thanks,

Looks like a xs1100 (rear) shaft drive wheel to me. most are 16" rears The 3rd and 4th pics are yamaha fronts...xs650, 1100, etc. drilled for dual disc...

Yep, rear is shaft drive. That makes it worth about $1 or so...

Fronts are pretty easy to swap around though.
