Cheers Rick
I managed to get some time to machine up some small boss's for the fork leg protector mounts and a split ally boss for the mudguard (ctr of steering stem) mount bracket. Will replace the cap screws with stainless button heads at assembly.

I will break out the TIG and weld the prototype fork guard's up tomorrow (mild steel sheet) and then paint them up for the weekend. Will blast and powder-coat them during next week.
I can then start working on getting the brake lines and the guides in place to complete the job.

Will probably look at getting these laid in Carbon Fibre later.


This works exceptionally well.
I will powder-coat this as well but cut some more in stainless at a later date.


Greg.

New ABS/TCS compatible 21" and 18" SILVER wheels fitted.

I mentioned previously that Woody was sending (now arrived) me some shiney new SILVER Woody's Wheel Work's super duty wheels for the WASPmobile... An upgrade from the non ABS/TCS wheels I first had, these are now 21" x 1.85" dual disc ABS and TCS compatible front, and OEM hub (therefore ABS/TCS compatible) 18" x 2.5" rear. .

The change from the OEM wheels is simple and takes around 40mins combined.
The front is set up with KTM disc's already installed, and I need to use the original encoder ring from the 19" OEM + the ABS backing plate during swap over.
The rear utilizes the OEM disc and encoder ring at swap over.

I opted for silver because:
1/ I've never really liked the look of black wheels on my bikes.
2/ No one else has a blue S10 with silver wheels - Who knows, maybe it'll start a new trend..

I have tested the 21" wheel both on-road and off-road AND I LOVE IT..!!!! so I have really been hanging out to install and trial the slimmer but bigger diameter 18" rear wheel.
In theory it should actually modify the speedo reading to now show accurately - BONUS...

The new 21" ABS wheel rocked up on Tuesday and the 18" rear was not far behind arriving this morning, so while I was close by the Motorradgarage warehouse in Perth I dropped by on the off chance they would have some suitable tires (I knew bloody well that they would have).
I chose the Mefo StoneMaster for their DOT approval and high load/high speed rating.
Sizes are 140/80-18" and 90/90-21.

Feels good inside just knowing that there is some decent chunky knobs clawing at the ground now.
I only hope the big S10 doesnt go ripping them to shred's (or turning them on the rim's) when the loud grip is twisted.

Finally some chunky rubber knobs


Front wheel - on..


Rear wheel - on.


A bit of high mount guard + fork leg protector goodness.


Dont worry Woody - I havent forgotten the sticker, I just want to clean the bike first




I just have to linish the guards up now and paint them (will powder-coat later).
I also have to sort out the brake hose routing and guides, but I know what the plan is there and I will be onto that during the coming week.

More ride reports/reviews to come, as well as a lot more pics once I have painted the bits and cleaned the bike...

UNREAL JOB WOODY'S WHEEL WORK'S


Thanks so much team... I could not be more impressed with the fitment and quality of work, plus you guys are extraordinary to deal with - I really feel like part of your team and family.

Greg.

Ive got 2500k's approx on mostly dirt roads to cover, from Julia ck to the tip, so I was looking for a knobby front that would be up to the task.. any feed back would be great.

Went for the n'th time to the Post Office and found a big parcel waiting to pick it up so I strapped it to the toy bike ...


so I unpacked and searched for my decals, cap and shirt but only found a wheel in black ... no brake discs (not ordered)so I placed one of my new OEM in place but Yamaha only had 5 screws ... the other side will be fitted with provisional SS 6mm until I get the proper (90149-06043)


tomorrow I'll fit 90x90x21 Heidenau K60 with a reinforced tube ... and order my rear 18" with SCREWS ... lol ... and hope it comes with the stickers.
Cheers,
Roberto

Ooops, didn't notice we packed the rest of the parts in the rear, I will make sure everything is included with it!!

I will get the rear out tomorrow and make sure it doesn't get lost this time.

thanks zach

Real sorry for not seeing this post, been super busy and just got the sensor adapters back from the anodizer. I will have pics up tomorrow of the front wheel.

Have been waiting on obe01's color choices, had some issues with the rims not matching. Turns out the 3.5 x 18 non-dimpled rim is 6000 series alum. like the hubs and spacers but the other dimpled Excel rims are 7000 and came out way darker, almost purple!!!

Will get you tracking info soon.

thanks zach

Preparing your WWW's SUPERLIGHT wheels for install

As the title suggests, following is a pictorial on preparing your Woody's Wheel Work's SUPERLIGHT hub'd 21" front wheel, and OEM hub'd 18" rear wheel for installation.

* Unpack your beautiful new wheel set and install the discs and spacers and admire..


* Fit and balance your choice of tires.

* Remove the sensor ring from the OEM front wheel.


* and install into the new 21" wheel hub.


* Take to your OEM front wheel left hand ABS encoder cover plate with a file or linishing belt to remove the corner shown. It only needs about a 1mm X 45degree chamfer to clear the disc spacer bosses.
Note: This will only be required on fitting to the Woody's SUPERLIGHT hub wheel.


* Shows ABS encoder cover plate installed. Ready for fit-up.


* Remove the OEM 17" rear wheel from the bike, and remove the ABS encoder cover plate and the encoder ring.




* Remove the OEM rear disc rotor and rotor cover plate.


* Install both onto your new wheel.


* Fit the OEM original drive rubbers to the new hub and install wheel to bike.




* Now go ride the hell out of it and enjoy Full ABS/TCS like original.

Greg.

New front wheel

Installed a 90-90-21 Heidenau K60 Scout on the new wheel and ... it feels like a feather ... very light but don't know if it will hold together when travelling at 'warp speed' ... 150 to 180 km/hr (100 to 120 mi/hr) ... maybe I'll have to wait for the rear 18.



Cheers,
Thagua
