You've probably heard this question a million times, bit i'm gunna ask it anyways.

I have an '07 KTM 640 Adventure, now complete with the "50 Cent Coin" front Behr rim ( it;s an aussie term.....)

I'm thinking of getting my local KTM dealer to build me a new rim i'm sure you meant wheel,,,FYI a rim is the hoop ya mount your tire on,,a wheel is the complete assembly ,,,
,,
,but i want to source the parts.
So what i want to know is

Whats the best rim to buy?i would opt for a1.85x21 for great 50/50 riding a 1.60x21 for mostly off-road riding ,,,a double signature Excel for the first one and same forthe second ,,these have to be custom drilled fro the euro index,,,the A_60 Excell is even tougher but we'll need to do atrick spoke set ie x2 on one side and x3 on the other to accomodate the jap indexed A-60 to the euro indexed hub.

Will a KTM OEM spoke set fit from hub to new rim ( excel, or sun, or whatever)yes if we custom drill the new rim for oem x2 lace pattern

and should i change size down to 1.6?only if you are doing hardcore offroading

I use it offroad alot, but also does it's fair share of highway work, and touring.hence the suggestion for the 1.85 rim ,,,if you ride really hard offroad well that trumps the deck in favor of a 1.6 and if you go like a bat out of hell off-road then we'll use the A-60 in a heartbeat

And lastly, can you supply what i need to get wheel built, and at what cost?

you're at the candy store,,we can supply std kits and even superlace kits with trick spokes ,,lace patterns and blueprinted rims,
rims from $170-256 depending on size n color,ss heavy duty spoke kits from #105-126 depending on ss or zartan nipples and add circa $30 for re-drill/countersink rims for superlace application

and will it be the same bits needed for an 05 or an 06 or 07 640Ayes sir

Thanks mate!
G'day on ya too
have a darwin stubby on me
woody

Hahah, no worries mate. I still have parts out at the local powder coater and my seat is being reconditioned down at Sargent, so no pressure. Watch that Claritin-D, it will break your wallet! It sure breaks mine!

FYI,,3M adhesive remover is your best ally in that department....it is amazing stuff at removing any left over rubberized product without affecting the finish

trick is applying directly and give yourself a minute or two to let it do it's thing,,so cock your wheel a few degrees with the weight at the bottom apply a few drops to the joint between the weight and rim...

next time you eat oriental/sushi keep your bamboo chopsticks,,,,whittle the flat end to a wedge and save for jamming it between your weight and rim,,add a few more drops and voila off comes the weight,,,

if there's any adhesive left,,add a few more drops and scrape off with the chop-stick or your finger nails..wipe off with clean rag...no trace of any weight left.....

FYI,,, we routinely get the 1/4 oz Tape a Weights lay em on and old newspaper and spray paint them the color of the rim,,they work IF used on a PERFECTLY CLEAN surface

'nuff on this subject

Woody, I use good ol naptha (lighter fluid) & dental floss for removing wheel weights. Also good for bumper sticker adhesive removal. Doesn't seem to harm any finish. just my 2 cents.

thanks for your great service to advrider, woody

i have a quick question for you. can i safely use a Moose HD Tube 120/100-18 in my KTM950ADV rear with a 908RR? the math tells me it should work!? unless of course, i've lost my marbles

Your input is greatly appreciated!

yes it would work in an emergency,,,,i'd opt for a slightly larger tube to match your 140/80 tire!!,,FYI,,,added as an afterthought,,,some tubes these days have multiple tire sizes they are capable of being used in as you found out in your case....don't be afraid to use talcum powder or tire talc,,monkey powder works just as well

for optimal performance the 140/80 works best with a narrower rim 2.5x18 if you are doing hard core dirt riding with lower pressures & with 2 rim locks installed.

the 3.5x18 rim would be your optimal 50-50 set-up

here's a chart for compatibility between tires n rims,,normally we opt for tubes that match the tire size

thanks for the response, woody

i've actually found out that the tube has multiple size stamps on it, and 140/80 is one of them! so it looks like it'll fit no problem.

i'm sure you've answered this a billion times, but tease me some more what would the ultimate bulletproof wheelset cost. i'm talking, front and back hubs, black rims, spokes, nipples.... the works? i'm guessing for my application, prolly 1.85 front 3.5 rear?

well now that you teased me...using your hubs circa $800,,,new OEM hubs circa $$1350,,,new billet hubs circa $1550

Hey Woody... I finally got my wheels back on the GSA. Thanks for everything cause they feel fantastic at speed, even with the knobbies. No more shake in the handlebar. Interesting enough, I haven't gotten the TPS's activated yet but no errors coming up yet....
Here's a pic of the bike out today...





And the tire mounted up.






Thanks Again,

Mike
