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.
no problem relacing to you rexisting hub,,,we have new and used stuff,,,you do want to upgrade the rim for sure,,,and stay with a 1.6x21,,1.85x21 max width,,avoid any of the behr rims out ther

your rear may be a bit wide for serious dirt work,,,consider a 19'' for the front ,,,it'll provide you with the an outrageuos fine road experience it'll work with your stock rear and is ok on fire-roads,,,the 21 will work better if you spend more time off -road
check another thread i have in vendor forum called ' ask woody about your ktm 19/17 wheels'

ahhh,,here ya go http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=439443

mastery involves KNOWING when to hold em and knowing when and how much to twist em before ya foul /fold em,,try kissing em first,,some lubrication is always appreciated if ya know where to apply it and how much ya need to torque em,,if that hump is that noticeable,,, lordy replace it,,,pert unnmarred nipples are an achievable and viable goal to aspire to,,,

after a while you'll twist m just right,,,,foreplay is desirable,,,vizualization almost always works,,,'chance DOES favor the pre-pared mind!' al einstein shared that with me some years ago

Woody,

I have a 2001 KTM LC4-E and am getting tired of the broken spokes up front, but am too damn poor for one of your super lace jobs as of yet. (recently unemployed) Can I purchase new spokes from you that are stronger than the oem ones?

I have a truing stand and know how to lace....

Sasquatch,,,call Zach at the shop and tell him to sell you an upgraded OEM KTM spoke kit for $50 +S&H,,they are better than the originals,,,dual gauge ss oem size spokes will set ya back circa $75 if you reccle your nipples,,new Zartan nipples add circa $20

hope that helps ya

Cry rim index

Woody,

I learn that the front rim in my KTM 640 SMC uses Jap index, while the rear rim uses Eur index. As i'm planning to convert the factory set up to 19/17 combination for a more off-road use, should i get the same rim index for each wheel or can i just use any rim with different index? What about spokes and nipples? Do i need to get a new ones?

it's a big headache for me since none here seems to know how to build wheelset. you would definitely provide solution, but the shipping from and to Qatar would be really expensive.

andre,,,we can provide you all the components that you would need ie we could build you a Superlace rim and spoke kit and al you need to do is lace and true it...the rim would be indexed for proper angles,,tough stainless steel spokes and nipples,,,everything you need

we could also just build you the complete wheels,,,what are your current rim widths,,i think they should be 3.5x17 front and 4.25x17 rear,,in which case you could recycle ie use your rear as is,,,and then you'd only need a 2.50x19 front rim + spoke kit

Hi, I have 2003 xr650l and am looking for another set of wheels so I can have a street set and a knobbie set. The xr650l wheels seem very popular and are in high demand. Is there any other Honda wheels that will bolt right on with out a lot of work.

The hub on the XR650L is one of a kind. None of the CR's or other hubs are like it, even the XR650R is different because it has a different axle size. Best bet is to find used XR650L wheels and/or hubs and build a wheel off of the used parts(these parts are hard to come by, but it would be the least expensive route).

Least expensive aftermarket wheel(stock size) would be $495 front & $545 rear(billet hub and 7000 series rim), stock wheel would be $420 front and $565 rear.

Not the news you probably wanted to hear, but the truth.

spokes to long

Woody

I ordered a new rim and spokes for my f800gs from ZACH at Woody's, but when I laced the wheel the spokes ended up protruding into the rim past the end of the nipple about 1/4"+-1/16. If I were to cut them or grind them, then I would only have about 3/8" of thread left. Is this enough? what are my options. Your prompt response would be appreciated.

thanks

i bet if you measure the length of your original spokes they will be about 3/8th inch shorter than the ones Zach sent you,,,which means he sent ya aX3 lace pattern set that we use for superlacing that wheel,,,
so unlace the wheel and make the spokes wind up ie cross over one extra spoke that goes the opposite direction,,that should take care of it,,,

we measure the cross from th ehead of the spoke on hubs like yours..good luck ,,woody

A60 on a KTM 950 ADV?

Hi Woody, sorry if this has been covered I tried to search but...

I have a dinged up front wheel on a 03 KTM 950 ADV. I bought a new hoop for it, an Excel A60 21x1.60 36h stamped 608.

I have been reading the indexing threads I think I might have gotten a rim that won't work. The stock hub appears to be euro laced based on your earlier posts (spoke in tepee points to the right)

When I hold the A60 rim next to the stock wheel the holes in the dimples seem to be going in the right direction but every so often there's a hole that seems to oriented the wrong way. Its hard to tell for sure but I am thinking I got the wrong rim.

What do you think?
Scott

NO PROBLEM

your choices are:

1,,get rim with euro indexing,,,none available in A60

2,,upgrade to a Superlace,,send in your hub and rim and we will re-drill/angle one side of your rim and create a x3 lace pattern ie jumping over to the next hole that is pointing in the correct direction,,the other side stays x2 ie oem pattern,,,you'll end up with a stronger wheel to boot not just a stronger hoop,,remember it has to be kept together ,,and i've got that figured out

3,,the ss steel superlace spoke kit costs $120 with ss nipples about $15 less with zartan nipples superlace with 1 year warranty on the lace n true is just $99

4,,if you are trying to keep cost down we can sell you half ie the x3 side of a spoke kit,,ie use half your old spokes and nipples,,,and do all the prep work on rim and you can do the rest ie lace n true,, or we can prelace and you can true,,whatever your pocketbook and talent can handle..

5,, the other option is to trade in your A-6o for one of our correctly drilled rims..call zach at the shop

hope that gives ya a broad range of options,,,

F800gs Hubs

Woody,

Any estimate when the aftermarket hubs you are working on for the front of the f800gs will be available?
