Woody,

My F800S is on its second bearing failure and many others are on their fourth and fifth over at f800riders.org. Please, Please, Please help us F800S &F800ST folks. As far as we know, there is absolutely no solution to the problem.

Woody, I posted this on http://f800riders.org/forum/showthre...091#post485091. Hopefully somebody will have something in the area to swing by.

950 rear wheel

If I change the rear wheel to a 3" vs. the stock 4"can I use the same spokes? I want to be able to run a 130 on the rear. What rims are available in the 3"?

well join your F800GS brethern,,,they too are suffering from the bearing blues....i will be more than happy to look into it if someone takes the time to drop a wheel off for inspection,,,,so far that hasn't happened,,,and the dealers' 'don't know what i am talking about''....

i'll take a peak look if ya provide me a link

here's the tire /rim-width chart from my www web-site..

http://woodyswheelworks.com/rim_and_tire.htm

you'll see that it too recommends what we do for a more dirt oriented tire/rim combo = 3.5'' wide..there aren't any 3'' wide rims currently available any way
i think we can use the old spokes if the drop centers are the same....

Excel/Sun/Morad/DID..all have 3.5s

working on more cost effective KTM LC4/8 rear hub...the prototype...

just to let you all know that the troops at RAD are keeping on keeping on in the way of improving their product and minimizing waste...ie delivering product more cost effectively....

FYI,,,the cost of a hub BWOE is largely controlled by the OD of the billet bar needed to produce a hub,,,,hence the more compact you can make your hub and still have dimensions that work with the bike you have is often an exercise in ingenuity....

so here is a prototype ktm 950/990 hub up for perusal...

the original billet copy of the oem unit and now a smaller diameter version...

so what do you all think????

OBTW...it's an optical illusion,,however the prototype on the right's cush drive OD is the same as the current version on the left....essentially they can start with 1/2''smaller OD bar stock = less waste and lower cost per bar....now i'm trying to trim some of the fat off the lil beast....and add a few mods that IMHO will make it better looking and working and not as heavy...i dig light AND strong AND beauty

holler ,,woody

Looks fine but

I would need to be saving more than 30% of the hub price to go for the prototype, if I were buying these rims I'd have to keep them clean and by the looks of it the prototype could be a PITA to clean compared to the one on the left in the top image, this is just my opinion.

woody's two finger pecking lower case letter typing elicits this observation...

the following showed up in my e-mail today:


Dear Woody:

In this world of hi-tech gadgetry I've noticed that more and more people who send text messages and emails have long forgotten the "art" of capitalization.

Those of you who fall into this world, please take note of the statement below. I cannot stress enough how grammar is very important to it.



Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.


Is everybody clear on that?

whoops,,,sorry folks,,,for my illiteracy,,mea culpa,,mea culpa,,

Thumb New hubs for KTM 950/990 ADV?

Hello Woody and crew;

Merry Christmas to all of the crew.

These new prototypes seem like a step forward... was wondering what sort of difference in cost for a new set of 19/17 (stocks widths) for a KTM 950 ADV pair using these hubs with your recommended rims and spokes?

Cheers,
Peter Campbell

FYI ,,i've already been given the word by all my suppliers,,,, especially Buchanans,,, that i am to expect a 10%+ price increase across the board...as of january 1st...
FYI we at the wheel works have been trying to maintain the prices,,, most of which i havn't changed in 10+years...
having all of you talk up our product has been a major factor in keeping the costs down...and trying to be ever more efficient....

we've run into the wall where my suppliers have steadily raised my costs and i in turn will be needing to reflect that in an upgraded price structure...

so order before the first and PLEASE pass the word....

to answer your question regarding price ..circa $1700-1900,,,haven't gotten an estimate of what the new hubs will go for,,,, the old complete assy went for circa $499 for the rear with cush- drive /sprocket carrier and dampening rubbers...

My XR is a 09.

I don't have any hubs, so... will you use XL1200R hubs (twin discs up front)?

I'm snow-bound so no hurry.

Thumb quote for my 05 KTM 950

Woody, if it is only going to be 10% then you are lucky, as are we because of your dogged support of your customers.
A BRAVO TO YOU and your Crew!!

I will send you a PM with my exact requirements for my 19/17 inch set-up. Any recommendations that you have regarding Excel versus____?? and available colours would be appreciated. I am thinking KTM (or closest) orange for the rims, hubs?? (black?), spokes are there colour choices. Cross-lacing and superlacing of course, and supersize I guess. Also wondering about cost to going sealed versus staying with tubes? Oh yeah shipping to ZIP 13669-3474.
Cheers,
Peter C

Thumb KTM 450 exc cush hub

Woody,

I purchased a cush hub from your shop about 2 years ago and the big bearing on the the sprocket side went out. As info its a 2007 KTM 450 exc. The question here is do you have a replacement bearing, dust cover and how much? Other than this, the wheel has been perfect with no broken spokes like I had on my stock rear wheel.

Thank You for your work!

merrry xmas jgreer!!!

well,,it would help to know what brand hub you bought,,,if it is a RAD we may want to check/measure the bearing bore,,,i'll check with them if it is under warranty,,,,

in the meantime,,,i'll need to know the bearing #/dimensions as well as the seal specs...should'nt be more than $20 for bearing and seal.

holler..
