woody, would the wheels you recomended above be suitable for 100% road riding on a 950 or would you advise something different?

I notice you prefer the 19/17 combo over the 17/17 setup, I'm after a new set of wheels so I can stop compromising on tyre selection and have 100% offroad tyres on my stock rims and 100% road tyres for hunting sports bikes.

I'm happy to take advice based on your past experiences and go from there. cheers

if you wanted to go 100% road riding then the 19/17 set up with street tires rules,,,this set up also allows the LARGEST selection of dual sport tires too,,,since it's the same combo used on all the bmw GS series bikes,,,,

okey doke, as I said Im happy to take advice even though these will never have Dual sport rubber on them I want to go roadbike hunting

can you give me a price for a set of 17/19 for a 950, with disks. not fussed on colors (silver or black is fine, whatever is cheaper). price isn't the major factor, good is (ie. will spend $50 bucks for a better component, not for a coloured rim if that makes sense?) and freight to Oz (doesn't need to be super fast, 3-4 weeks is cool). can email me if you want me to

Thanks Darl
its the same old story,,,2.50x19 front with 100/80x19 tire

and 4.25x17 rear sporting 150/70x17 sticky tires,,,

not to mention when ya want to go offroading,,,you have the largest selection of dual sport tires avaiable,,,,

Huuuuuge big thanks to Chris and Jill, both very helpful and willing to spend time on the phone as necessary, answering my stoopit questions.

Black Excel 7000's, 1.85/21 front and a 3.5/18 rear, both X3 with SS/SS and black RAD hubs . . . on the way.

Pics once they're both here with new shoes mounted up . . . and once I get my damned camera to work.

Great crew you've got there, Woody.

KTM 950 Prices

You can see prices here in post #738

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=738

Prices on KTM parts, just had 5-10% hike(means hubs are $10 more than, just a month ago).

All other prices should be correct.

Write me an e-mail if you're interested or want the exact quote: woodyswheelworks@gmail.com


Thanks,
Chris

Difference between GSA and GS spoke rims (wheels)

Hey Woody

I’ve slightly bend front spoke wheel of my ’06 R1200GSA. Tried to fix it with spokes tension, but unsuccessful – it still bent. I can drive – it’s almost ok, with light vibrations at higher speeds, but I feel uncomfortable when know what front wheel is damaged.
I asked at BMW dealer for replacement and they told me, that there no rims for replacement – I should order whole wheel for more 1000,-€.
Other option could be to order only spoke rim for R1200GS (not adventrure and not black, but gray). Price will be around 340 €.
Who can tell me what’s the difference between GSA and GS spoke rims except colour?
Are there other options to replace rim – other supplier maybe?

P.S. Sorry for flood, as same topic I posted in Gspot

first ,,,,these wheels and rims are repairable,,,we do it everyday,,, that's the good news,,,the bad news is that you are over there and i am over here,,,,perhaps i should come and visit

second,,,if your rim is bent you will never be able to true the wheel very well it has to be straightened first,,,,you can tell a bent rim by looking carefully at the outer sidewalls of the rim/bead and you will see bulges and crazed anodizing where the spokes go through the bead,,,straightening your rim depends on how bendt,,$70 +/- to straighten your rim

third,,, in the usa silver/grey 1200GS rims are circa $372 and complete wheels are $942 in either silver or black,,,,that means there are no black 1200GS Adv rims available,,,we routinely strip and re-anodize 1200 GS rims black costs circa $60 for satin black and $90 for shiny oem black,,circa $200 to r&r rim and retrue your wheel

fourth,,,,perhaps if you have friends in usa,,they can bring back a new one and save you a lot of money beause of the good 1.5e+ =$1 exchange rate,,,or many people have brought their bendt wheels over here on vacation and i have repaired them on the spot,,,,BEWARE,,,you MUST call in first,,,i am always on the road

holler how i can help,,,woody

Hey Woody,
Two questions. First, I hit a pothole on my 1150GS Adventure and did a number on my front rim. If you look at the picture, I flat-spotted it. The flat spot is noticable at low speeds now, especially with a brand new tire. Is something like that repairable? If not, what are my options?



Second, the car wheel. I hit a curb pulling out of a parking spot in my Honda S2000. A stock rim from Honda is $600, and I haven't had much luck finding one cheap online. The wheel isn't bent or anything, just the scratches. About how much to repair something like this? I won't hold you to the price, just wondering if it worth fixing. Thanks!

the Gs wheel will require partial dismantling,,,straightenining the rim and then reassemble and true,,,circa $250 but less than $300

the honda,,,will need weld/machine /powdercoat clear,,less than $200

give us 2-3 days usaually for turnaround,,,woody
