RD125 rear hub/drum/wheel
« on: April 09, 2021, 12:11:39 PM »
If anyone has an RD125 hub or rear wheel assembly (ideally with brake plate, sprocket carrier, cush rubbers and spindle, but I'll take any of these bits) or a similar alternative I'd be very interested to hear from you. Thanks!!!

Possibly. It's for the Arrow so I'm just looking for something smaller than the T20 drum we've been using for 33 years. Does it have a seperate sprocket carrier with a decent cush drive?

I am sure the Yamaha 125 twin before the RD was a YAS3.

The wheel is complete with a DID 1.85 rim. Just needs a sprocket.

The brake drum is 140mm

Thanks Chris but I'm really looking for something with a separate sprocket carrier and cush drive. Cheers

It has. Think there a 3 rubber, may be 4.

Ah, OK, sorry, couldn't tell from the photo, looked like a single casting.

Could you send me some more photos ideally with the brake plate  and the sprocket carrier removed, price where you are based to invicta.racing@gmail.com

Cheers
