    Hey lads.

    Just wanted to clean my new used front wheel before going on the bike. I saw this disturbing manufacturers name.

    Is it original?

  2. I’ve never seen it spelt out but the logo I’ve definitely seen on Daytona wheels previously, I can check my current bike but they are older style wheels so you need a 2013+ owner to check there’s and confirm
     
  3. Chinese replica wheels

  5. They are the Chinese replicas as wrlondon says mate.
    They are around 180£ on Ebay.
     
  6. im Not sure if theirs a way to tell the difference between OE & cheap eBay special.
    Zhong Lian do manufacture the wheels for triumph & the genuine ones aren’t stamped triumph either so unless @In the mix knows of a way to determine the difference?

    thats what i got on my rear wheel
     
  9. Trouble is the replicas made a direct cast of the wheel being replicated, so will still have the same markings
     
  10. Most Parts made in Thailand and shipped to uk for assembly so I would say original
