swapping 520/525 wheels onto 990 ADV...won't happen,,here's why

Talon hubs i hear good things about but, how good are the Excel J rims ?

Can i use the Talon hub and Excel rims on my '07 KTM990Adv ? If not, can the Excel Rims be laced to the stock KTM990Adv hubs (with a spoke kit if required) ? I'm already running a 2.5" Dirtstar rim from the 950SE laced to stock Adv hub and want to go with a full dirt setup (1.6" front and 2.5" rear).

thanks
hi vick,,already answered in the other thread,,here's what i said:

vick et al,,,
FYI,,,520/525 front is single disc,,,990 double disc=

520/525 rear hub is 1.5 narrower so spoke angles and indexing won't match,,,,one uses euro the jap indexing=

520/525 usually has non cush drive hub....your 990 absolutely needs one=

FYI,,,we could re-drill/re-angle the rim if we had it here,,,,what are ya trying to do ,,come up with a spare wheel set or simply get a nicer wheel set???,,holler

add em all up=

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
Finally got everything made up and measured properly. But as it happens, I now have another disc solution on the way. That makes the HP2 320mm disc I have redundant, but here are the measurements anyway FYI:

- Distance from hub to centerline of caliper is 14mm
- Assuming a 5mm BMW spec disc, that would mean an adapter with a 12.5mm offset from the hub face.
- The OEM R100GS rotor will not even clear the fork legs, let alone get close to the caliper - too much offset.
- The caliper adapter I have is spaced for a 320mm diameter disc.

So, I think in theory, there is a solution using your disc adapter. But Ill let you know my final outcome when I get there.

But in the meantime: Whats your turnaround on refinishing a front and rear set of R100GS wheels? I am planning to send you my rims first thing next week. You should still have some email correspondence from last year between me and Zach, but Im thinking I should give you guys a call - or would you prefer email?

Thanks much for the clarificaitons.

I want to go single disk on the front with the stock caliper+rotor+MC just change the brake line to a suitable one.

Non-cush Talon hub was something i didn't think of

My aim is to have a dirt-worthy (sand desert+rocky terrain) wheel set to accept 140 rear tyres. Additionally i want to lighten up the front (single disc) a bit. Other mods are in in the pipeline too in this direction (weight reduction).

cheers

dual to single disc conversion on 950/990 KTM Adv

Psssst,,,ya may also consider swapping your master cylinder to one with a smaller piston because you will lose the mechanical advantage you hav ewith the current set-up....hence you will have reduced braking capability 2 ways:
1,,half the brake swept area...
2,, now the master cylinder piston has half the slave cylinder piston area to push against

some folks can live with that ,,,most can't
later,
woody

Woodie!

I'm wanting to change wheel size on a Hypermotard to a 19" front and an 18" rear with spokes can this or has this been done?
I see a French company is making aftermarket 17 spokes wheels for this bike but only in the stock size, they could be a source for the hubs.

Just thinking out loud.

Just wanted to say thanks again! Was planning on ordering some parts from you to build a wheelset like this, but ended up finding a set of lightly used Woody's-built wheels for sale locally. Came off an LC4, but Zach set me up with the right spacers and new seals for the Rad front hub. Was running a 19/18 combo on my XR650R before I bought this KTM and just liked that they're a little more versatile than a set of SM wheels. The cush-hub is amazing. REALLY smooths things out. Had a cush-hub on my old LC4, but never rode it without one, so didn't know the difference. Have another cush-hub that I'm going to buy some spokes for and lace-up for my dirt wheelset. Tires came with the wheels, so I'm just going to burn them up before I buy something a little more DS-oriented.

990 rims

Hi Woody,
I'm thinking about changing rims on my '07 990 adventure. I have stock ones, but want to be a bit more off road oriented.
I'm not superfast, but do like to bash into things. I'm considering going with a 1.85 x 21 front, and a 3.5 x 18 rear.

questions:
1 - does that sound like a good combo for 80dirt/20 pavement?
2 - If I bring in my existing wheel set, what would I be looking at, cost wise, to have my old ones (tires & discs still on) disassembled, get some new rims, new spokes & nipples, and a super lace done, and tires remounted?
3 - what sort of lead time to have it done? Would like to keep downtime to minimum now that it's getting warm up in the mountains.

Thanks,
Jim
