i don't think soooowithout getting major stretchmarks

tires have to fit on matching rims not only in diameter but also on rims with the matching /appropriate width

Then this Excel rim from the DRZ would lace to an F800GS Hub?

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.

Another tire question for a different bike , I got 100/100-18 rear tire now , I really want a Teraflex but they only come in limited sizes.110/100-18 which I know would work but the one I want is 150/90-18. What are my chances there ?

Air leak through spokes on front spoke rim

I have a slow leak in front wheel (19 inch) on GS1150 (2000 model). When I spray detergent on the rim it shows the air is leaking through the ends of 5 of the spokes.

Tyre has been removed and no damage to tyre or leaks along bead when tyre fitted. The only possible explanation seems to be the rim is double skinned and a light crack exists on the inside of the rim allowing air to move into the gap and then out through the spoke ends. Is this possible?

If so can the rim be welded? Other option is to insert a tube but this could be a hassle when repairing flats in remote locations. Any advice greatly appreciated

rim swap from DRZ to F800GS hubs

kkesp...there are 3 other factors besides having the right number of spokes that need to be considered,,,

1,,the diameter of the spoke hole pattern on the 2 hubs

2,,the width and location from centerline of the spoke holes on your hubs

3,,the indexing should be the same

so you can check this by holding the 3 wheels up against each other,,,if these 3 elements are close/match then a swap is possible,,,,FYI,if we SUPERLACED the new wheel then we'd automatically reconfigure the nipple holes provided they were close enough,,,if the indexing is different we can usually add or subtract a spoke X on one side

can you install a150/80x18 instead of 100/100x18??

what you need to find out first is that 150mm wide tire will fit inside the spatial area of your frame/swingarm/chain/chain-guide/fender without rubbing...then your 2.5 rim[iassume that's the rim size for an oem 100/100 tire ]would be too narrow for the 3.5 speced rim needed for the 150/90 tire
assuming the tire could fit in your space,,we could always install a wider rim for that upgrade

Tjakura-san,,,now that's a new one!!!,,,,how about a pic or two???,,,,is it leaking out on the inner side by the spoke/rim interface,,,or on the outer diameter from under the head of the spoke....there'd have to be a crack going through the rim in that neck of the woods,,,whatever it is i am confident at finding the cause for that effect you are experiencing

Hey Woody thanks for the response. It is leaking on the outer rim diameter from under the head of the spokes, this is happening on at least 5 spoke heads. I spray detergent and bubbling shows air coming from the spoke heads and not the bead edge. I took photos but after 3 hrs of resizing and reformating pictures (using a mac so recommended pc upload sites of no use) I have run out of steam.

Plus + 1 for Woody

Gotta give Woody a prop for EXCELLENT customer service. He definitely knows his thing about wheels. And aircraft. And people. And customer service.

My project wouldn't be the same without him; can't wait to pull the trigger on it.... He'll have my order soon.

Thanks Woody

Second that! Zack is a great guy. He gave me good advice in going to the Supersized, Superlaced Excel rims Woody's did on my Dakar a month ago. After listening carefully to what I wanted to achieve, and where and how I usually ride (long rides on twisty, mountain tarmac) Zack recommended I go to a 19" front wheel for improved handling. I did, and absolutely LOVE it. And, I have the 21 for offroad when I feel like it.

Thanks, Zack!
