Seems like the easy thing to do would be to head to eBay and get the correct year range. Bike rears are typically easy to find - fronts not as much
I am going to disagree with you somewhat here. Black 08+ wheels are hard to come by. Many, many years ago, spare FJR wheels were all over eBay. In the last 10, not so much. I have been looking.. Lots of Gen I wheels but not much demand for those. Twice I have attempted to buy a black 08+ wheel from Estonia and Great Britain but they never made it out of the country for some kind of eBay customs/shipping reason. Two others that were available a couple years ago I balked at due to cost.
I know FJRs are getting wadded up so I would really like to know where all the wheels are going. I was fortunate to finally get a '16 rear wheel a few weeks ago that is in excellent shape with brake rotor. Supposedly 18k miles on it. Came off a wadded up '16 FJR I found on Craigslist that the private party seller was parting out. I also scored the ES shock for pennies on the dollar. Not sure what I am going to do with yet.
Dan Cooper provided excellent information. The 'definitive' post on FJR wheels IMHO. But still, like Ross said above, how hard would it be to find the toothed abs ring to install on a wheel that doesn't already have it?
I don't even want to know how many FJR wheels I currently have to match my gluttonous amount of FJRs. A 'spare' set of 2004 Gen I non-abs wheels. A 'spare' set of 2004 Gen I abs wheels. And several spare rears and fronts for 08+ wheels in various condition of both colors. I am now done acquiring anymore spare FJR wheels!
