I doubt it Dan , relacing is expensive .
If you have some time to spare you could look for a bike with an 18" rim with the same spoke pattern and a hub about the same size as yours , you might then find that it's drilled at the right angle to accept your hub.
Then you could get a rim of the same type from a wreckers yard and have it laced to your hub .
That would be a cheap and cheerful way and you might get the info you need about suitable alternatives from a KLR discussion group .
Otherwise look out for a new undrilled rim from fleaBay or elsewhwere ,they do pop up from time to time .
