Question F650GS (twin) spoke wheels

This might have been discussed but seems to be lost in the sea of F8GS posts.

Did anyone swap the wheels of the twin F650GS to spoked tubeless? And if so, what wheels went on?

Thinking about buying one as a secong bike, but it doesn't seem to be on the options list.

Thanks,
Andras

It's been discussed, Andras. But no one has come up anything yet. If you find any spoked, tubeless wheels for either the 650 or 800, we'd all like to hear about it.

Thanks for the quick replies, will keep an eye on those threads. For now I guess I will just hold it back until it gets sorted out.

Will R12GSA wheels work on the F8? The rear tire sizes are the same, and the front wheels & tires of the R12 are the same size as the F650 front.

D'oh! Sorry, Marty. It was briefly above freezing yesterday, so I had to go riding. Here are the pix you sent (resized).





Those spokes appear thicker to me. Any idea how the wheel's weight differs from the stock 21" wheel?

David, thanks for posting the pics. No way I'm going to weigh the 2 wheels. My guess would be that the thicker spokes would add a bit and the 2" smaller wheel would subtract a bit. My very uneducated guess would be that the 19" wheel would weigh a tiny bit less. Not noticed by normal humans.

Bike is on the way/should arrive by noon tomorrow.

For anyone wondering how I got the 19" wheel...Bought a perfect front hub from a wrecked 800GS/sent it to Woody's and they did the rest.

***nat han, no they are not tubeless!!!

Huh? Since this was what the OP asked about, I was also under the impression that these were rims for tubeless tires. Bummer.

Sorry 'bout that. I thought there were 2 questions. Tubeless and/or 19". On other threads guys were asking about getting a 19" wheel.
