It's the front that I'm having trouble with. I'll report back, I feel the odds of my not becoming your customer are starting to diminish.

ok,,now i know exactly what you are trying to do...R100GS 21 front wheel to KTM front

Note that I intend to keep the BMW x-spoke wheels for this bike, hence having to find a solution for adapting a disc.

1,,since you have aleft disc and a floating axle that pulls up against the left fork leg,,your first order of business is getting th elocating/left spacer measure up and made so that your wheel is centered in the forks

2 now that the wheel is snugged against left forks you can measure the distance from the disc mounting surface to center-line of your calipers,,,

3,,you can nowfigure out where your rotor needs to end up and what package ya can come up with to get you there...,,don't forget to take into consideration the width of your disc,,have you tried using an OEM r100gs rotor,,, just for grins to see if it coincidentally lines up???

4,,don't forget to measure from th eouter edgeof the pads to centerlin eof axle x 2 = diamete rof rotor ya need

that should do it...
let me/us know what ya come up with

woody

same checkout procedure as mentioned earlier ,,,'cept ya don't need to start the motor,,you buddy needs to hold ass end down or throw a scissor jack unde rfront of engine till the front wheel clears the ground,,then spin the wheel and you're eyes will quickly tell ya if that wheel is running true.

now how'd i think you were talking about the rear wheel....
hmmmnnn

thanks for the videos,,,that wheel is a candidate for our expertise,,,it's definitely out of true,,and most likely also has a flat spot

the good news is we can get it back to you better than stock specs.

FYI new wheel is circa $1134,,,

you'll spend circa $200-300 with one year warranty depending on how bad it is.

holler when you are ready
woody

NOTICE: Buchanan's latest price catolog is out.

well there's good news and bad news....

the good news is that most all their services ,,,their Sun rim and spoke prices haven't changed...all other rims have taken an across the board 10% price hike

FYI BSR builds the sun rims in house as well as the spokes so can control a good bit of the machining/manufacturing costs...getting stuff from overseas is getting ever costlier...

just giving you all a heads up...

what's the deal with the welded area on X-laced BMW rims???

hi weazy,,i answered in your other thread and am posting the answer here to so more folks see it again..thanks for the pic it shows the problem well.


folks,,,more has been written about this area on your X-laced rims....

FYI,,yes you are right ,,,it is the area that was manually ground down by some yoyo in the Behr factory...it is the same area that the BMW tech bulletin says to ignore when measuring for warranty claims...

the gouges and divots are all 'normal' in their eyes,,,,IMHO any divot that is deeper than circa .030'' get's filled in and machined...some of these divots that we hav erepaired were .080''/2mm deep and and 4-5'' in length

this same area will have .040-.100'' variation in width...they get real agressive in blending the weld area out

why they simply use a technique similar to Buchannan's Sun rim building,,ie after 'normalizing the rim, BS&R tosses the rim in a lathe and voila and machine it down to size,,VOILA, a beautiful,perfectly round rim is the result....

in the meantime look at this ugly mess



OBTW,,,see the black rubber on the lower lip,,that's a sure telltale result of a divot ,,,your tire is working overtime trying to accommodate it til it heats up and transfers rubber to the rim

hi W, you and i have been exchanging emails regarding the HP2 set up. moving it here that way many peeps can benefit from your inputs.

your recommendation of 19/17 to replace my factory 21/17 is one way i can touch the ground, and improve handling for road/canyon riding.

sticking to the tubeless for less upsprung weight, better road handling, etc.

sent you another email earlier and for pricing, PM or email is good.

thanks,

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,
