Again the very same R12GS wheels question...

Hi Woody
Just went thru your thread after having chat with advRider "MJS", Mark. He strongly suggested me to contact you.
his bike with ur wheels:


As I'm doing quite often offroad with my little panzer and as I'm living in a stony rocky area, the tracks are quite difficult with it.
I did a trip (the second) in May in Morocco and it was even worst. Tracks were stony as ever and we did a lot of sand and the 19' is a nightmare here (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229220)

So my idea is to have a 21' in front and a 18' in rear.

and fire roads....the oem rim sizes used by all the GS series bikes,, ie 2.50x19
front and 4.0/4.25x17 rear superlaced like abve will give you the broadest
selection of tires available as well as superior streetabilty,,,,they can also
be sealed for tubeless operation
I was wondering whether a 17' for the rear. And you suggested a 18'.
ok, if it's better.
I guess this size is more handy for finding tire, right ?

So I wish to know what are your suggestions for wheels sizes ?
If you ever heard of problems that could raise on the 12GS.
And a roughly price for the set.

Many thanks in advance.

ps: sent an email too.

Answer...

answer...

Answer...1.85x21 frpnt and 2.5 x18 rear

If you ever heard of problems that could raise on the 12GS.

Answer...we solved the only one by reconfiquring the drill pattern of the front wheel,,the first couple of front wheels would occassionally have the spokes nick the bnake calipers,,,,,we traced the problem to the drilling machine which would allow the drill bit to wander depending on the angle/ direction of drilling as well as the profile of the rim,,,so we put a mini x-lace to the pattern solving the problem and enhancing the strengyh

And a roughly price for the set.

Answer... circa 900 using yoour hubs ,,,,add another 700 +/- for new hubs,,,call toll free for exacr quite,,,remember now is the time to cudtomize the wheels ,,it,,,different colored rims and/or hubs etc

perfect. I was wondering if larger wheels could cause any trouble, like the 21 in front with the little bridge we have just upon the wheel.

Thierry,

The 21" front will clear the bridge. You will have to remove the front mudguard. Maybe the TT mudguard will clear but why bother - the bike looks better without it. Rear 140/80x18 would rub the stock shock mud guard under compression with a new tire. Wilbers shocks fixed that.

Cheers,

perhaps i'm behind the eight ball,,,,,,however if it's what you pictured here that you paid $530 for,,,...that's circa $150 more than we do it for in the mile hi city,,,,and ya usually can't see where we worked on it because we include touching up the paint etc as part of the deal,,,,,hmmmmnnn,,,where was this ?????,,,in case i want to start a franchise in that neck of the woods,,,,

ps...the good news is that someone was able to save you a bunch of money,,,and they appear way better than before!!!

E-Mail?

Hi Woody,

I've sent you a couple of e-mails (to the gmail address on your web site) over the past week and haven't received a response. Wondering if you're receiving them.

Thanks!
John

Thanks woody, wish I had done the 18/21 before wrecking my 19/17 wheels. Dont have any good rims for those hubs do ya?

just gotta love the creativity,,,,

kudos Bert1150 to another sweet looking ride...



i assert and second Tomas's notions that the front wheel of the HP-2 is far heavier than what is optimal,,and that goes of course for the hybrids you all are building.....

fyi,,,,have just taken delivery of the first 2 sets of the Saxess rims for R&D purposes,,,contrary to popular belief kirsi uses these rims now but the front is NOT a 1.85x21 like we all thought but rather a 1.60x21...it is in the leaque of Excels new A-60 7000 series rims,,,that are super tough unfortunately they come in but 2 sizes 1.60 x21 36holes front and 2.15x19 32&36hole rears,,these are the lightest by far

so what you hybrid builders need to know is that swapping out the oem bmw x-laced 1.85x21 behr tubeless 40hole rim for an 1.85 x21 excel will lighten up the wheel by circa 1k/2lbs,,,and if my current prototype ktm derived billet wheel project using the superlace techniques and going to 36 holes rim and spokes will take circa 3k/6 lbs off the front wheel,,,now THAT will make a huge difference and have the kind of effect you are all looking for....i

BTW R3B,,,i'm leaving for your neck of the woods on next monday the 27th,,,if there'sanything i can help you with and can bring over,,holler/PM me,,,same goes for you Tomas,,,

exactly,,,,, and what i'm saying is that if you currently weigh in at 20kg less than a stock 1150GS with the front wheel in your picture,,,,then you will gain an extra kg by just changing rims and another 4kg + by changing the complete wheel assy you are currently using,,,

and what is even more important it is reducing the unspung weight at the same time!!!
