I bought a 2001 RM 125 and the rear rim was cracked. I took the rear wheel apart, threw the rim out and now looking for a replacement. The Suzuki parts list says the rim is a 19” X 2.15” but I always thought 125’s were 1.85”. Can anyone physically confirm what the rear rim width is? I tried looking online and see both 1.85 and 2.15 listed. My objective is to match OEM spec for that year.

1.85 is typical of Japanese 125's, you can use either.

You can run the wider rim no problem, and even with the 100 tire it actually works better.

Ktm125s come stock with the wider rim

Yeah I know you can use either but not sure what all the pros and cons are. I just want to know what OE was for that year.
