Any intrest in the snowflakes? appear to be in good condition.
Thanks,

Feel free to e-mail @ aaabluezer@yahoo.com
Thanks for the attaboy,,no problem on your project,,,it'll run close to $1k with donor hubs,,,we may hav esome floating around,,,nows th time to also send in the disc and mounting hardware,,get it all beadblasted an dsealed for a pico bello experience

PS i figured in bead blasting and sealing th ehubs,,beefy ss spokes,,we can also upgrade the hubs to double sealed ball bearings,,

regarding the snowflakes,,,have no idea what they are worth,,go to www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com and check their microfiche for oem new $$$,,,circa 50% of that would be a starting point+/- depending on condition and demand...i just saw a Borrani rim for a 750 ducatti go for $3,000+ on ebay....who ami to ????

holler n thanks
woody

Hey Woody,

Will regular 950 Adv wheels (19/17 setup) work on a 950 SE if you take the right side front brake disk off?

950 adv wheels on SE

Dan --

You can use the Adv wheels on the SE as long as you swap out the external spacers on the front wheel and the external disc side spacer on the rear. You could order a new set or just use the original from the SE hubs/wheels. Removing the disc is obviously recommended. Leave the bolts in to avoid getting dirt in the threads.

This is a long shot, Woody, but who knows ?

Would like to replace stock rims on my 08 Triumph Tiger 1050 with a set of Excel rims/Talon type hubs while still using same brakes !!!!!! 17 all around or 19/17....am I dreaming ?...Probably but I thought I would ask. Just trying to make it look like a KTM, the bike is already orange, so I got that covered, right ?

Thanks

Phil

Woody,

I am a new owner to a 950SE and would like to lower the bike without necessarily adressing the suspension.... SO Seat... and rims....? I have heard the 19 / 17 combo works with tubeless tires I believe???

I would like to go with slightly wider wheels as I will be doing as many road trips as possible as well with off road adventures.....

So what should I do???
should I find a complete set of 950 ADV / 990 ADV wheels and hubs etc???

what about the dual discs on the ADV that my SE is missing??

thx!

triumph tiger 1050 wheels

Do you have spoked wheels? Looks like they are cast. Let me know and we will see what we can do.

Kawasaki KLR650 Front Hub Failure

The speedometer drive tabs on the front hub of my 2006 KLR650 broke off. I didn't notice any thing unusual until the speedometer stopped working. The bike had about 24,000 miles on it when hub failed.

The bike is covered by a Kawasaki Extended warranty, so I took it to my dealer and they replaced the front hub and speedometer drive. About 4 weeks later they called and let me know that Kawasaki denied my warranty claim and that I owed them $675! Kawasaki claims that the hub must have been abused, so it's not covered.

The hub was full of grease, so I don't think if failed due to lack of lubrication.

In you opinion, what would cause a failure like this? Is this something that I could have caused? If so, how?





















Thanks for you advice.

19/17 for SE

Sounds like the 19/17 set is what you are looking for. It will improve your on-road performance, braking, etc. through better tires, lowering the bike by about an inch and wider front wheel(bigger rear wheel if you want it as well).

Best thing is to call Zach at the shop at the number below or e-mail:woodyswheelworks@gmail.com for the numbers. You'll want a 2.50x19" front wheel and a 4.25" or 5.00" x17 rear wheel.

You can still do fireroads, off-road performance will have much to do with tires you choose.

If your stock set is in good condition, best route is to save those for off-road use and have a new set built. If they are beat-up or you need to save some money, then we can build the wheels using your stock hubs. We could build the wheels with the single disc front hub in stock or billet(billet is not that much more with the single disc).

Give a call or e-mail and have a great day.

KLR-650 cause and effect of hub and speedo drive failure

That's a bummer and for such a simple cast hub, Kawasaki believes they are made of gold.

Have seen this happen many times. The tabs are quite weak and if not installed correctly or anything hits those tabs, they are susceptible to breaking.

woody in greece chiming in....

i just took a quick peek on the web from the ship $1/ minute web time ,,,ok,,,looking at the pics it appears someone wasn't carefull in reassembling and aligning ALL the components,,which caused a chain reaction,,i bet it started by

1st,,not having the tab on the forks be properly installed in the slot of your speedo drive ,,NOTICE the crushed area on the right tab of the speedo drive slot
2,,this squeezed the drive together causing the gear not to turn w
3,,which made the metal tab not turn
4,,this ended up ripping out the pieces/slot in your hub
WHOOOOPS...ya got what ya got:(........

Rx,,
1,,new speedo drive
2,,repair hub ,,see below
3,, or replace hub

FYI if you dismantle the wheel it's $80 for relace n true,,, if we unlace +relace n true it's $100

Our welder has repaired several of them. You could send the damaged hub in and we can do our best to repair it, usually is about $60-80. If you are able to return the "exchanged" wheel, this would be worth it. Also, see if they would be willing to lace and true the wheel back up for you for the trouble. Otherwise we charge $80 to lace and true. Give us a call or e-mail if you have any other questions.

Thanks woody and the gang at the shop that provided the initial response

Yes Woody, stock wheels are one piece cast.

Pretty much would require hubs machined to stock size with disc carrier of stock size too.....then lacing rims in 17/17 or 19/17 combo.

Thank You for your time.

Question bigger rim for KTM 640 SMC

Woody,

I'm planning to change the front rim on my 640 SMC from 17 to 21. Can I just buy a 21 rim and lace it to the existing hub?

What do you think if I run on 21/17 rim set up? The point is i want to convert my 640 SMC into an adventure bike.
