Super Tenere spokes/Nipples

Hello Woody,

Do you have a spoke kit available for this model yet?

Corrosion of the stock Zinc spokes/nipples is a known issue with this model.

I was thinking of trying the one at a time replacement method but need proper SS spokes/Nipples.

Thanks in advance,
Andy

will seal hold after truing a sealed wheel???

''I recently had a wheel sealed by Woody’s, and I am very happy with the result so far. When telling others about the process, I often get this question which I can’t answer.

Can the wheel still be trued after sealing (spokes adjusted)?

MK '' end of quote

hi mike..ya can always re-true the wheel,,whether it compromises the seal is another story,,,that's why we recommend Superlacing the wheel... If not ,,,re-truing before sealing....this minimizes the chance of needing to muck around with the nipples.

i'd say that of the wheels that needed retruing ,,,there's a 30% chance that one or two nipples may need re-sealinglordy....,i can't remember the last time we had to re-true a Superlaced wheel!!! and of the others there's always a greater chance that they'll have something go wrong,,,that's just the way it is.

bottom line,,of the hundreds of wheels we have done there's less than a handful that needed work,,most incidences are from crashing/hitting rocks/chuckholes etc....so i don't count those...especially if we have to loosen a ton of spokes for the straightening /heating processes needed for repair...those wheels we strip and start from scratch

FYI,,,the old silicone only sealing technique had a greater proclivity to tear the silicone when turning the nipple..those i's say had a 50-50 chance of ripping /ruining the seal,,and also easy to repair,,just dig/cut out the silicone around the head of nipple and squeeze a lil more silicone in and let it cure

hope that helps...
woody

Woody - the link in your first post for the Suzuki doesn't work. It points to an editing page which I cannot access (probably because I am not you????). Could you post the link? Thanks!

It might have something to do with wire wheels on a Wee Strom. I know there was a link somewhere talking about that conversion. Also can you get hubs for a Triumph Tiger 955i. I have an 06 and was thinking about wire wheels. I know the front wheel is a straight swap, but the rear requires spacers. Have you delt with 955i Tigers before? I have an 06 with the cast wheels. Do you know if these wheels are strong, or should I convert to wire wheels?

Hi Woody,

Excuse me for linking to one of your previously posted pics...



Are you still making these adapter plates? If so, would you make one without the center cut out?

i'm sure we can do something...

FYI
1,, the adapter starts out as .250'' thick 6061-T6 circa 7x7'' square plate
2,, the center hole is drilled to bolt plate to cnc fixture
3,,and now ya gotta tell me just what you want and don't want replicated on the above disc adapter
4,, the outer 5 lugs match oem bmw R1200GS hub/disc mount pattern the inner 6 replicate oem KTM 950/990/LC-4 disc pattern..

holler,
woody

Sealed Bearing Kit for the BMW R90

Hi Woody,

I see you sell a Sealed Bearing Kit for the BMW R90. Goodbye tapered roller bearings!

Can you offer any more details on what the do-it-yourself setup for this conversion is like for a rear wheel?

Cheers.

Great. The idea is to get a 320mm OEM BMW disc on a R100GS hub. Any additional offset required can be accomplished with a simple spacer.

The airhead’s hub center is 62mm with a 4 bolt hole pcd of around 79mm to hold the disc in place. The rest of the plate could be left undrilled, but I suppose relieving it of metal while retaining strength would be a more elegant solution. Cost/complexity pending of course.

Let me know if it’s do-able. The wheels will on their way to you soon, regardless.

''got it'' no problem i'll figure something out for you,,i imagine you'll want to have the new disc be in the same location as your R100GS disc,,ie same offset.

now that i know what you are up to,,,there may be simpler ways of getting a 320 mm disc since that's what you are essentially after,,

soooo BWOE there are 320mm discs with much smaller diameter carriers....which could more easily be modified,,and then you'd only need a spacer for proper offset.

are youaddicted to using that bmw disc,,from what model bike was it...??
holler

Well... for one thing, I already have the disc: HP2E 320mm. The idea was to use an HP2 wheel, but the new triples and KTM forks are spaced too narrow for this. So I actually need a lot less offset. Less than 22mm from my measurements, including fasteners for the disc.

I’m thinking around 13mm + a 5mm disc and fasteners so your plate and a spacer to fine tune it would be ideal.

I did look at other discs, Ducati in particular, but I don’t like the idea of modifying the disc if I need to replace it while travelling.

why not shoot a pic of your current front end what model/year it came from,,the hub ya have,,give me axle diameter...
there may be a simpler way to skin this cat

did you do a preliminary check to see if your caliper will clear your spokes when the hub is centered in fron end...

Awesome. Was just up at Renazco's shop and saw one of those BMW wheels. Was wondering about adapting those rims to fit other hubs/bikes.
