I have a bum front rim on my ducati monster 99 750. I loose air in a week do to the rim being a little banged up. I want to get a striaght rim with no issues but I remember when i initially was looking into buying a rim there was an issue of different sizing pertaining to the axle size changing around this time period. My rim is a 17 x 3.50 not sure of axle. am i correct in this assumption? can anyone assist?

Wheel rim dimensions haven't changed in 'forever'. The axle size has changed a number of times. You need a (17x 3.5) wheel with 20 mm axle. I happen to have both items but, the wheel would need repainting.

I believe thats the issue. I remember the 99 having different axle sizes. I sent a pm to the above poster. is there a way to see which axle is needed without taking the wheel off?
