Not quite... I want something closer to a classic dirt track or maybe a supermoto tire.

Bitchin' picture though! I've been following that story...

Chris @ woodys is in the process of scaring me up a 17x3.5 RT wheel for the front of my R12GS. Hopefully project Giganti-supermoto will be underway soon.

Thanks,
Shawn

What's the best way of balancing a spoked wheel?
I have a balancer and the lil adhesive lead weights but they look a little tacky stuck to the sides of the rim

your basic set up here is close,,,to refine it here's what we do,,,

1. we have several axles in various diameters set aside for the exclusive use to balance,,,ALL constantly monitored for straighteness

2.where you used a bushing to prop up the shaft we use smooth worn ball bearings with no seals,,,to minimize drag

3.. tape a weight works fine,,,provided you preclean the surface with brake cleaner or acetone

4...up to an ounce of counterweight we install at the light spot of wheel assy,,,,make sure all ojects like discs n sprockets are mounted for a more accurate balance job

5, where heavier weights are needed we like to install the weights in a delta patern 1e,,more like 120 degrees apart,,,much smoother

6. for roadracers and enduro riders,,,we cover the weights with a piece of duct tape as added insurance

7, ALWAYS check your wheel /mag for true and no dents/flat spots....before ya balance,,,it's a waste of time n money to balance a crooked wheel,,,,you'll have a wheel that physically will still shimmy n hop once you ride on it

PS,,,pssst,,,FYI,,,, you don't stick the weights on the side of the rim,,,ya stick em either on the drop center portion of the rim or on the flat surface to the left n right of the drop center

Mine would not fit anywhere else, I just put 'em on 'til I find a better weight

Whatever that is?

This is the first tire I've run balanced on the DR, never had a issue with the other tires but thought I'd try it this time

Thanks Woody! I just started riding this summer and was wandering why the front tire might be hopping and shimmying on my '06 1200GS. I was going to say it was simply out of balance. But after reading all the info on this thread I think I have a better place to start now.

I will be planning to send you some wheels this winter.

Woody,

I have a R100GSPD and I'm think about having the wheels trued and spokes tightened and/or replaced. Is it possible to offset the rear wheel by 5mm when respoked? I have interference problems with my rear tire and shock and must use spacers. I would love to stop using spacers.

i should have no problem swinging that,,,a good idea at this stage is to do one of my restorations,,,ss spokes are in order,,,i upgrade all those old chrome spokes,,they are notorious for rusting and having the heads crack off,,,am doing several as ispeak,,,one customer is taking my advice of having his rims anodized,,,the oem ones were polished akronts that get kind of crusty

send em down ,,you won't be disappointed,,,do it sooner rather than later cause i'm off to ashville on the 26th -10 sept

TDM900 mods

Hi Woody,
I have a TDM900 and I would like to make it mode Adventure...
The stock rims are 3.5x18 and 5.0x17:
I have the following options:
1. change the front rim for an Yam cast 3.5x17 and fit Pirelli MT60RS 120/70 and 160/60
2. change the front and rear for Yam cast 3.5x17 and 5.5x17 and use Dunlop D616 (Uly stock tires)
3. move to spoke rims...


My questions to are:
what do you recomend from your knowlage? (sizes, hub/rim brands, tires)
did you ever modify an Yam R1/R6/TDM?


Regards,
Paulo
