Ok, I know this a long shot but looking to buy some rear wheel weights for my 1025r. I’d be willing to drive anywhere in the New England region. Either the 50 lbs cast ones or the 72 lb cast starters I’m interested in as well.
Thanks

Winter, I don't know if you found any weights or gave up, etc. My advice, just get them from the dealer. When I searched for some, 72's were near impossible to find. 50's would show up occasionally. Any time I did find some, there wasn't any savings. Everyone wants top dollar, and nearly all were rusty. Rust usually does no harm to them, but by the time you clean them up and shoot some paint, they're close to buying new. I end up getting the 72's from the dealer, paid just under $400. When I was looking I only found 2. One wanted $400, one $385, I believe. Both said bolts/hardware included, but they looked like I'd have to replace the hardware anyways, so I passed. I ended up using 1/2" threaded rod cut to length, nuts washers, etc. I had that stuff so no more cost to me.

Just my 2 cents.

Be sure to look on Craigslist and Facebooks marketplace for Deere Weights.
I bought a set of single notch weights on ebay for $225 shipped. They are about 4-6# heavier than the current double notch 50# weights, and only made for a few years early on.
Ideally, youd have the starter weights, (70#) and a set of the double notch (50#) to stack on top of those.
There is a guy up in Michigan that sells the standard weights for about $150 and will ship...cant recall his name, but hes on a few Facebook Deere pages.
