KTM 1190 Adventure Wheels

Thanks for the info and post, always welcome here. We are trying to obtain more info on the wheels and would love to get our hands on a set to know exactly what they will and will not fit. Everything suggests that they are tubeless wheels, and appears that they are either using DID tubeless rims, or Alpina tubeless set-up, just would need to get/find close-up pic of the nipple area to determine. (more likely they went with DID as they have a closer relationship there). A close-up pic of the hubs would help determine what hubs are being used and whether can directly fit or made to fit the 950/990.

KTM has been known to make there hubs and wheels pretty standard, i.e. only making small changes year to year or keeping the same hub/wheel for years.

The ABS could be different, but looks similar to the newer 990s, would need to get a set in here, some better pics, and/or parts breakdown to determine.

Info from JC Hildebrand on the bike here and the mentioning of the tubeless wheels: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/880/14...irst-Look.aspx

Obviously a major thread about the 1190 on ADV here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...784473&page=76
Certainly looks to be pointed more towards a street ride, then off-road bike. Will likely be building some 19/17 wheelsets for the added street performance.

As we get more info or if anyone has one already let us know and we will continue to update.

Thanks,
Chris

Please excuse my noob ignorance here if my question is blatantly obvious to you and others: Following are the specs on the new 2013 1190 Adv R and I note they come with TUBELESS 21" front and 18" rear wheels. My ?-would these be interchangable or adaptable to the 950/990's? Would their new 'off-road' ABS tech matter?

(info from Chilly's Enduro360.com site)

  • Modern VDO instrument cluster
  • Full WP USD forks with adjustable with separate compression and rebound

Thanks for the pics. Always a pleasure working with you. Look forward to hearing how they perform and seeing the kind of paces you put them through.

Thanks,

Thank you Chris,
Figured you folks would be keeping an eye on this. Indeed may be getting 19/17 conversions, but I also think the 1190 ADV non-R comes that way. It's just the R with the 21/18 combo. If these new wheels can be retrofit to the 950/990's that will be great, in my opinion. And if so, then I'm anxious to see how you'll make em better.

Hey Woody,

Any luck on wire wheels for a 2008 Honda Varadero?

I think Honda made the wheels out of puddy or butter. I've destroyed one before and have now limited the bike to street use only. I'm glad I got an XR650R to take care of the off road excursions.

In an email a long while ago you indicated you were looking for a bike to measure and possible design a wheel?

If anyone in the Colorado area has a Varadero please bring it over for measurements. Varadero owners around the world would really appreciate this.

Do you have any advice for this set of Excel rims from a DRZ400SM? I've tried everything to clean them and still no luck. Is it possible to re-anodize them or am I stuck with powdercoat/new rims?

for starters,,,if you are going off-road or competing in anything rough n tuff you do NOT want to powder-coat your wheels,,,makes em softer from our experience,,next

these wheels look like they've seen salty conditions and /or cleaning fluids like Simple-Green,,,theya ll attack the anodized finish,,,

so we take em strip and re-anodize,,...satin black or any othe rcolor ya want = $75 if you want a shiny finish add $25 for re-polishing the rim after it gets stripped...

Rim R&R and true + $100 ,,,circa one -two week turn around..


woody

PS if ya want em stronger ,,we can Superlace n true = $111 + ss spoke n nipple set = $125

pal,,i've been doing stuff like that for 40 years,,,not many requests these days for that kin dof project,,,

and sorry i do not have specs on your oem wheels...so...

yse we can build dang near any thing ya want,,,

if you are lucky we can recycle wheels that are close to the specs/node points of yours...this keeps the cost down..otherwise we will have to re-invent it .
wheel sets like that will run between $2-4k depending upon lucky vs unlucky

this would be a winter-time project...we'd need both wheels with rotors/all spacers/cush an dsprocket drive assys..so we can determine the critical nodepoints..

FYI gone are the days when most manufacturers offered the public a mag AND a wire wheeeled version of the same wheel set-ups,,made life way easier for me...

holler

woody

sorry mate,,just returned from the Rawhyde Adventur rallye in Moab,,,


talked with Zach,,he's checking his notes,,


woody

update: as far as we know we have not had any in here or built wheels for this bike. We would need a set of wheels to determine if we could adapt another set or build a custom set. So, if anyone out there is interested in sending or stopping by with a set of the wheels, give us a holler.

Thanks

picked up my 19" front wheel for the KLR today, mounted it and took her out for a spin. Felt great on the streets (and interstate). Thanks for the fast turn-around, good price and outstanding work.

KTM 990 ADV front wheel. Can it be sealed?

Hi Woody:

The Saxess stock front 21 incher is like the underperforming student, can it be saved?

No safety bead, but the Scorpion tires have a fairly stiff sidewall.

For frugal (read: "cheap bastard") riders like me can the stock front be saved/sealed? Super-laced?

FYI there are 2 versions of the SAXESS 2.15x21 available,,,ALL made by Behr in old germany...

a,,the original ''butter ball'' Behr as used on most KTM 950/990/LC-4s as well as early BMW F800GSs,,IMHO a waste of $$$ TO REPAIR OR UPGRADE

b,,the in between Behrs with a SAXESS label on em as delivered on many FbooGSs ,same verdict as above

c,, in the last year we have encountered a stiffer version of the Saxess branded Behr rims,,,got snookered by one at last years RMAR event in Saguache CO,,,a guy cruise in on a new 990 with a major dent in the front lip...lilooked real stupid showing the folks the old tried n true 3x4 and a big mallet trick to straighten what i thought was an 'ol butter-ball'',,hence i knew the rim was upgraded because it reponded more like an Excel...and we have seen/heard of something similar going on with the F800GSs..i'm sure the newer stuff is being introduced in a helter skelter way,,same went with the rear
upgraded hubs,,so it is essentially a crap-shoot

What i oe we can do is get the numbers off of the side of rim and i'm sure we'll be able to tell what's what in the future..

holler
woody

OBTW once more ..WE WILL NOT SEAL AN RIMS NOT SPORTING A SAFETY BEAD!!
