Eek width of stock DID 1.6 x 21 front rim

hi all

i am trying to build a new wheel, replacing a bent and beat up stock rim and spokes with some nice new Excel rim and spokes. can anyone confirm for me what the width of a new DID rim is so I can offset the new rim to the proper specs?

I have worked my way to page 344 of the thread and dont remember it posted.

thanks

Where are you located?

If the o-ring is cut at the top half of the cover, you can probably get by with re-using it and maybe adding some sealant until you get the replacement piece. Since not much oil should be puddling there, it's just flung around inside that cover. Sure, you may lose some oil, but it will get you by.

Northeast Oklahoma... yeah I cut it at the top so I don't think oil will be leaking out.

I really love ktm's, but cannot get myself to pull the trigger on one because everytime I go ride with them or talk to a ktm owner, I see the bikes sucking down more dollars than gas.

Maybe Stihl will build a motocycle someday, and it will be orange and as reliable as their chainsaws.

in all the fork threads i have read i have never heard it mentioned.
crypto thanks for the reply and if you can confirm itds not on your stock clamps that would be very helpful.

I would hazard to guess that the folks who break'm/ have broke are very aggressive riders/ racers. I'm a large dude (260lbs) and have had zero stretch and loosening of the hardened replacements. The stock bolts are soft and weak for sure, mine were almost broke when I took them out. Bad design? yes no doubt about that. Going on a year now with the good bolts and they show no deformation whatsoever. But I ain't no racer!

YMMV
