I know some one is making steel spacers for the beemer guys, but I haven't seen anything on the tigers yet.
When I had modified DR800 I had 2 set of wheels for it. And DYI aluminium spacers made on my small lathe.
I changed wheels million times, rotated spacers etc. and never ever had any problem with bearings in 70 000 km.
