BTW other than a couple of dings from the previous mentioned 50 MPH rear blowout the wheels you built for me 2 years ago are still rolling along perfectly.
the latest version is working better than expected,,ran into a little glitch,,that we caught and corrected,attention to detail...the devils in th eprep and application,,,


regarding the othe rsystem have nothing to add or commen ton ...sorry hav eno experience with it..woody

Thanks!
FYI the rear wheel poses no problem,,,i highly recommend getting the wheel trued before doing this,,, the front wheel is a 21''er and has no safetybead,,so NO GO!!,,,,,,!i've got several years on mine and i know customers that i've done this 10+year ago and are still riding around on the sealing job.

i have even more faith in our current version

woodys

ps..turnaround time 3-4 days

Thanks for the info Woody. I'm very interested in doing the rear then. Can you give me a ball park figure for re-lacing the front wheel with a R100GS 21" tubeless hoop?

sorry ,,,no can do ...the x-lace rim is 40 holes and the nipples are in the hub,,F800GSs run 36 hole rims/hubs,,,simply can't reconfigure it...

there's a chance to do that with the Aprillia Caponard rims which have the x-laced /tubeless configuration like BMWs THEIR NIPPLES AE IN THE OUTER EDGES OF THE RIM,,but only available in 2.5x19''

back to the drawing board

KLR650 18" front conversion

Hi there

I live in South Africa. My front rim on my KLR650 is cracked and needs replacing. I'd decided to go for a 18" rim upfront. I can find no-one in my country that has done this conversion yet. I can get a 18" rim on my side, but the right length spokes is my problem.

Will it be possible to make up a kit of the correct length spokes and mail to me in South-Africa?
If not, will you supply me with the correct lengths so that I can try and source the spokes in South Africa.

I appreciate all the help and info.
Thanks!!

hi herms et al,,

we can supply a complete kit WM-3/2.15 x18 7000 series alloy rim predrilled for your hub $$140 and 8g ss spokes and ss nipples $105 OR with zartan nipples $95

your choice...pick n choose

remember you have to have properly drilled rims to match the correct spoke angles on your conical front hub...

if this won't work for you ,then i'll see about spoke specs...that's like asking a bartender for his secret recipe,,but hey when you are in god's country why not be generous...can only enhance WWW's karma

,woody

1985 Honda XL600R

Woody,

Old bike question here on my Honda XL600R dualsport. I have an extra rear wheel (17" rim) for my bike. If I want to swap this 17" rim onto my front hub instead of the stock 21" rim, how do I figure the spoke size for the swap?

Or is it feasible for me to ship you the front hub and the 17" rim and let you sort it out? (cost estimate?)

Thanks,
Eric

Eric et al,

there's an outside possiblity that we can re-angle/countersink the holes in your rear rim to match your front hub pattern...

your best bet is to send in all your stuff complete,,,so we get proper offsets,,,we always try to recycle as much as we can ,,,give ya a little credit toward putting a good combo together..BWOE,,if we have a 17 rim that'll work better for you ,,,and yours is in good shape we'll work something out,,

ok..least expensive way is $80 for custom lace n true,,$30 re-angle /countersink,,,,spoke kit anywhere from $60-105 depending if we use a good take-off spoke set or ss spokes n nipples

woody

Woody, i picked up a spare set of Rims for my 07 Bmw Adv for a great deal knowing they have a slight "wow' to them, slight flat spot like they took a very hard landing to them.. it is very slight... I could almost use them as is but i want them to be true.all the spokes sound ok but what the hell do i know!!!..In your Masterful experience can little "wow's" like this be repaired?? If not how much roughly to replace with stock hubs? Thanks Sir...

BMW Airhead 17mm to 25mm front axle

Woody, I'm interested in installing a later Bmw fork with a 25mm axle onto a bike which originally had a 17mm axle. Do you know whether the spoke type hub could be safely machined from a 40mm o.d. bearing size to 47mm? Also, do you know whether the newer type hub could be laced to an older type rim with the spokes in the center? Thanks much, Jonathan.

aprilia dorsoduro

Woody,
Do you think you could do a hub and wheel set up for a 2009 Aprilia Dorsoduro?
17 or 18" rear with a 21" front.
Thanks,
Steve
