I feel the urge to replace the rim and spokes of my Bonneville T-100's front wheel (2.5 X 19).



How much to replace them with something more weather resistant and sturdy?

Do I send the whole wheel or just the hub?

Thanks.

When I have you do my F800 18" conversion would it be better to just send you the hub? I'm thinking because I'll be doing the jumbo SS spokes and nipples all you would need is the hub right?

we usually prefer getting complete wheels ...that way we we have a sense of what's up with the wheel ,,,,damages it incurred affecting the hub and most importantly the offset.

components that have certain value,we usually give some trade in for,,otherwise i give something in return like either cut you some slack on $$ or do a lil extra work like polish or bead-blast or give ya t-shirts

send er in

How much to replace them with something more weather resistant and sturdy? circa $400 excel rim beefy ss n ss spokes n nipples Superlaced,,you will notice a difference in the handling that front hub uses all inner spokes if you notice,,half of em are basically just there for show,,,yes the ''inner inners the one with the bend sticking 3/4'' from the hub,,,we change the lace pattern and have all the spoke bends as close to the hub for extra support....

Do I send the whole wheel or just the hub?just answered that in the previous post #1518

Thanks.

jb
thanks woody

Bonneville T-100 Wheel

Thanks for the estimate Woody. The wheel will be on the way as soon as I remove the tire.

Is there a preferred way to package or box the wheel?

remove the disc if you have the tools,,,complete wheel in tight fitting box with double cardboard in the spots where rim meets box...

Hey Woody, Thanks for the photo of you guys inside your Denver shop; nice to see the faces behind them thar names!

Anyway, saw on your site prices that the Excel 19x2/5 front rims for KTM are in silver. What about black?

Other question is on Talon hubs for KTMs - the std ones not the carbon jobbies. Are they drilled for Japanese or European rims or can one choose? How can one tell easily which they are??

I've just used the google search facility to find the answer the rim indexing question I had so no need to bug you with that and get you to repeat the question you've been asked a dozen times before

we charge $75 to strip and re-anodize the rims,,,this turns the standard sorta shiny Excel rim to a satin black look say 80% shiny,,to get em to look like oem excel we have to polish em up to high buff,,,add an extra $25

Other question is on Talon hubs for KTMs - the std ones not the carbon jobbies. Are they drilled for Japanese or European rims or can one choose? How can one tell easily which they are??

i'm positive Talon will spec their hub to work with oem ktm indexing which is euro i believe,,,,want a universal hub???,,,,made in usa??? ,,,,try the RAD hubs,,,i speced em and had Bob add an extra set of spoke holes instead of lightening holes...thus making the hub be capable of any index and or lace pattern..see the difference below...just $299 and your choice of hub color!!!!

rims

Woody, last year I had you make up a set of 19"/17" black Excel rims with the large SS spokes and nipples with black powder coated OEM hubs for a DRZ400. I sold the bike but the guy didn't want the rims. I only had them on the bike for about 500 miles of road riding and have been trying to sell them. I'm asking $900 for the set which I think is more than fair and would cover the cost of my 18x3.5 upgrade for my F800GS. My question is would the rims work for any other application? I see a lot of guys getting the Excel rims for F800GS, would these rims be able to lace to a BMW hub? If the rims would work on bikes other than just the DRZ I would have more options for a sale. The rim sizes are 19x2.5 and 17x4.25.

so sorry the rims won't swap !!,,,, why ???,,,cuz your DRZs are 36hole and the F800GS wants 40 holes,,,,,and i don't know what else thy would fit

however their is a silver lining,,,if ya want us to up-grade your F800GS to 3.5 x18 or whatever... then call Zach at the shop tomorrow and he might take em in as trade in on what ya need,,he's a fair n square guy

Well Crap

I guess I can't count. I thought I counted 36 spokes on my 800, but then again I didn't have my shoes off either. Thanks

front tire changing dilemna of sidecar rider...

an inmate PMd with this question regarding R&R front tubeless R1100GS tire...

''OK, I love changing my rear and sidecar tires because they are with a tube! but the front is a pain in the butt to break the bead and pop the bead...
How can I use a tube with the front tire? Or just do? And do not worry about popping the bead? what do you think?''


1,,i see no benefit to going with a tube on your front other than if you are in the toules it will be easier to pop the bead on to the tire while inflating it.....trying to get the bead to seal is the one weak point in the tubeless tire scenario especially if you do not have the rush of air needed to make that happen.

2,,we have trimmed down the safety bead on certain models to facilitate getting the bead to break loose easier....some x-country racers remove most of it for quicker tire/tube changes.

3,,know it is called a ''safety bead'' for a reason.,,,operating a rig would want me to have a set-up that minimizes the front tire popping off the bead in case of sudden air loss....you'll have a REAL handful in case the tire just popped off the bead

4,,,i'm curious what part of the tire changing operation frustrates you.??? if its breaking the bead ,,,then my partial bead removal will help....it is a good compromise....ie it facilitates busting the bead immensely.....then i'd run a tube ,because it makes filling and seating the tire a snap because all the air is trapped in the tube

holler if that sounds like it will work for you.

I don't want to seem argumentative, but I recounted the spokes on my F800GS and still come up with 36. Am I missing something?
