KTM 950 Front Circlip

Hi,

Search is not netting me much. I have a new to me KTM 950 with 21" front Woodys wheel. I pulled the wheel to do bearings and noticed it did not have a circlip retainer in the left side of the Hub. The KTM parts diagram shows the stockwheel uses one. I did not see or feel a groove for a clip either.

Does the Woodys front wheel for KTM 950 use the clip?

Thanks for your help.

hi ,,wen we designed the hub we realized we could maintain the oem specs for centering and disc location by using a symmetrical bearing layout,,thus saving an extra step/ cost/part
fret not,,

Sealed Bearing Kit for the BMW R90


Hi Woody,

Do you still sell a Sealed Bearing Kit for the BMW R90, to get rid of the tapered roller bearings?

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

Cheers.

Thanks to you and Zach who also answered email this morning. What service!

For the community, the RAD hubs DO NOT have the clip. Zach advised to put the left bearing in last for proper alignment.

Thanks guys!!!

it is good advice from a theoretical stand-point,,the hubs were designed to be used either way...there is circa .010'' of float to keep the bearings from getting crushed,,,essentially a non-issue of concern

FYI,,,the hubs that utilize the circlip like KTM, kawasaki or honda with a lock nut,,all use the stabilized bearing as a reference point to keep the disc bearings line dup properly,,the other bearing essentially free floats and is not a reliable reference point.

FYI # 2,,,we've also found out that in the case of the KTM 950/990 front wheels that the 'loose bearing co-incendentally wound up within a few thousandths of the circlipped one ,,allowing the rider to flip the wheel (some guys like to flip wtires ,,thinking they'll get more tire life,,,REMEMBER...most tires are manufactured for a specific tire rotatation,,hence NOT a good idea to reverse em!!!

BMW R1200GS Cast wheels vs Woody's spoked wheels

It is often that customers call us for spoked wheels to replace cast wheels, being concerned with everything from how the bike looks to the threat of irreparably damaged cast wheels on Adventure tours. For this reason, most Adventure touring companies, like GlobeRiders, require bikes have spoked wheels. Below are numbers that provide even more incentive to go spoked and still be tubeless.

The R1200GS cast wheels with spacers/bearings weigh in at:
Front 2.5x19 - 15lbs 13oz
Rear 4x17 - 12lbs 4oz

Our R1200GS wheels with our billet Superlite hubs with spacers/bearings and dual disc carriers, Excel rims, Stainless Spokes and Nipples in the Superlace pattern, and sealed for tubeless:
Front 2.5x19 - 10lbs 12oz
Rear 4.25x17 - 11lbs 4.5oz
or
Rear 3.5x18 - 11lbs

We'll do similar tests with the cast wheels from the F650GS Twin cast wheels.

Is there a certain time of the day/week that is best to call to talk to someone about wheel setup and work?

Best time to talk?

It would be best during our business hrs. 830-530 monday-friday. Depending on what you want we have a couple guys to help you out. But if you need custom wheel sets for your bikes it would be Zach that you want to talk to.

thanks Zach

I have five OE wheels for my F800GS, one pair with TKC80s and one pair with Scorpions, and an extra front with a dented rim.

Can OE front and rear hubs be laced to OE BMW HP2 rims for tubeless DS tires? (Or perhaps an R1200GS 19" rim.)

thanks W.......


quality built and awesome service





Q: the rear stays 17, but with the lack of knobs, the OD is now smaller. my speedo reading is about 5 miles faster than actual at 70 mph. is there a way i can calibrate the speedo? google searched it and found nothing, except the speed sensor is picking up the rear wheel rotation. hahaha....i'm putting more miles than i actually ride.


the 990 is my friend's bike; W also did the whole thing, which got me to get a set as well.

Tubeless options on F800GS

Hi,

We can't lace the 36 hole F800Gs hubs to the 40 Hole 1200 rims. What we have done is laced excel 19''/17'' rims to the stock hubs and sealed them for tubeless tires. It works great, but we can only seal 19'' and smaller diameter wheels with a safety bead on the rim.

If you have any other questions, you can give us a call at 303-936-0232, or email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

thanks
zach

So: why isn' there a safety-beaded 21" front wheel?

Aren't they manufactured? Inquiring minds want to know.
I would like the peace of mind on my KTM 990 Adv to know I've got a few seconds after a blowout to get the bike under control.

you are not alone with that inquiry,,,

FYI,,there's only one 1.85x21 40hole rim and it is used on R100GS/PD aand the HP-2 sporting a safety bead

we routinely transorm a plethora of front BMW 19 wheels to 21''

the only other 21 eim with a sfety bead is the 2.15x21 made by Buchanans

IMHO it is too soft and too wide for the work we need it foe.

i am working on a propriatary 1.85 x21 7000 series extrusion die as i write,,someone has to fill the gap,,i've asked for that size years ago

we'll see
will keep ya posted
