just mounted a 21'' with TKC-80 on it ,,to check for clearance on our upgraded rim drilling specs,,,,now there's over 1/8''-3mm clearance between spokes and rotors...and 5/8'' between tire and fork-brace..
i haven't had problems with mud because it just get's scraped off as opposed to getting packed under the fender,,,

will check,,,,w

FYI,,,we are not in the business generally of being a used parts emporium,,,we have lot's of stuff though that we can draw from and pop a wheel set together for you,,,it creates greater flexilbility to more precisely give our customers exactly what they are looking for...sorta like a hi tech burger king ONLY in the sense that they appreciate the philosopy of ''have it your way''',,,same goes for us,,,w

was that oem style tubeless or or our version of standard style rims???

Hi, my original question in the GS section was does anyone lace 17" rims onto R1150GS hubs. Now I know that you do, the burning question is........... how much for a 3.50 x 17 front and 5.5 x 17 rear and shipped to UK.

Failing that, can you recommend anyone in the UK to do the same job?

Thanks for your time and attention

well if ya want to go tubeless,,,i have some take off HP-2 stuff ,,oem x-laced,,,2.15x21 front and 2.50x17 rear,,,will see what i can put together for you,,,have you got the hubs????,,,do you want single or twin discs up front,,,we've had a run of guys wanting spare wheels and that burns up used supplies in a heartbeat....

the end result of the exercise will of course be something worth riding on,,w

Tubed wheels for an R1200GS?

Hey Woody,

I finally listened to everyone (you included) and am posting my question here. As I'm certain you are aware, the GS spoke wheels post purchase are STUPID expensive- and I mean that literally and figuratively.

Nevertheless, I am wondering if I can lace a set of typical dirt rims around a set of stock hubs? That is to say, this would be for primarily dirt use and I want to be able to take off the mags and then use a set of dirt tires for when I hit local dirt parks, etc. Since they would be typical dirt rims, they would have tubes and- most importantly can be serviced by me and built for significantly less than a set OEM ones.

What so you, oh wise wheeled one?

KTM 950 21'' Excel lacing

Hello Woody !!!

I hope you can help me...

I was trying to lace an Excel 21'' rim with a stock KTM 950 Adventure hub, with stock KTM spokes... Yes, now I know, completely wrong

Now I'm about to order a Buchanan set of spokes, but reading the threads here in Advrider I can not be sure if I don't need to drill the rim (modifying the hole angle) to lace the wheel...

Thanks for your help!

What so you, oh wise wheeled one?
go to my web site below,,,go to the bmw section and also the the bmw section in the picture section,,,to get an idea of the options and what they look like

you have two choices,,,

1,,, to go the bmw x-laced tubeless route which you probably don't have the skills for lacing,,or ,,,

2,,,have us set you up with a trick set of custom monzter spokes and excel rims drilled to work with them and your hubs,,,they lace up with a conventional tube type set-up,,,,less than a $1k for parts and labor SUPERLACE with 1year waarranty against your wheels blowing apart,,knock 200 off if you lace em yourself,,,exact price depends on if you want to go low budget no color,,,,zartan nipples instead of ss and things like that

superlace ing essentially is us giving you optimal components,,,lace patterns and essentially blueprinting your wheel,,,it's the no brainer

yes we can help you,,,send us your rim ,,, we have two choices


1,,,we'll re-angle half the spoke holes and provide you with the other half of a x3 spoke kit,,,or,,,
BTW we use nothing but Buchanan spokes bent to our specs,,,the buchanan spoke set you were about to buy will be just like yours only in ss,,,that won't solve your wrong indexing problem

2,,,you can trade that rim for credit on a properly drilled /indexed rim...your 950 should be running a 1.85x21 rim for optimal performance ,,, we can do that for your stock x2 spoke set-up or get it for the stronger x3 superlace set-up,,,,IMHO,,,1.60x21 rims are too narrow and flimsy for the 950 i'm assuming that's what you have ,,because that size is a dime a dozen out there all indexed for jap hubs

thanks for the warm fuzzy,,,took a lil extra time and hope it was worth waiting for,,,and notice the trick lace pattern and those extra beefy dual gauge spokes ,,,makes your stockers look like they should be on a honda 50,,,,,

That's what I tried to avoid, send the rim overseas Well, perhaps the better would be send the hub, and buy you rim, spokes & lace, and try to give back the rim to local vendor, we'll see if we have not other chance.

So, you mean that the only way is to re-angle the rim holes, isn't it?

Bent to your specs! It means that not only re-angle the holes you need diferent spoke angles, true?

It means Buchanan does not solve the way I want, being it have a set of spokes that I can lace without changing holes and bends...

Rather than send you the rim, I'll try to return the rim here.

IMHO,,,1.60x21 rims are too narrow and flimsy for the 950 i'm assuming that's what you have ,,because that size is a dime a dozen out there all indexed for jap hubs
The Excel rim I have is actually a 1.85x21

I understood that one side should be two-cross and the other three-cross, at least with the set of Buchanan spokes. Is there a way to have it 3x both sides?

Excuse me if I put you no-sense questions... It would be for my weak knowledge of both lacing wheels and english language...
