Very nice wheels for the street. Don't think I'd run em off road.

The cost is great...this is purposeful in retaining my scoot's individuality.

Plan on spending around $1800-$2000 for a set like these. Best to contact Woody once he's back from his world tour. There is a thread on these wheels with some more pictures in the forum's "Venders" section. One thing about these wheels is that you can buy them new from Aprilia for around $800 for the set. Its all the custom stuff that costs so much. Too bad they're not interchangable. Tires are Michelin Anakees. I'm a graduated ex-GS rider. These are road biased GS tires on GS size, GS style tubeless rims. These size tires are better for touring, lasting longer than Scorpions and feeling more planted on the road. Keeping my stock rims shod up with a D908RR rear and a 606 front for those rare days I play with her in the goo. Hate to say it...but I really don't want to get this bike dirty yet

My 520 chain conversion consists of a KTM X-ring orange chain, a hardparts tri-metal stealth sprocket and a 17 tooth 520 conversion sprocket made for Aprilia V60 motors...its kinda neato how many things swap over from the Rotax...makes me think they had one on the bench when KTM developed their V twin...just saying Check Sprocket Specialists for it, pn # 623X available in 15, 16 and 17 tooth varients. It will have to be modified slightly. About 2.3mm has to be cut off the long flanged side, cut it down to stock width.

Rear sprocket will fit up fine but it also has to be slightly modified to fit. Bolt holes have to be bored out to 10mm from 8mm and also countersunk 90 degrees for M10 flatheads. I used blue coated class 10.9 30 or 35mm long, can't remember with some nickle plated lock nuts. The stock T-bolts won't fit...well...actually they will but there is so little clearance between them and the swingarm that it made me nervous. FWIW, the conversion is made simpler buying an offset flange 520 rear sprocket and using t-bolts...though the bling factor vastly decreases. Holes will still have to be bored out.

Fubars,
I got one of you yesterday:





It was a fun ride. After you left, meat took us on R002. It was a whooped out steep and long climb that had H20pumpers bike bouncing about 3 feet side to side.

Nice shot. I shoulda stuck around with you guys yesterday and crash at my brothers place. The ride home sucked last night. Clear Creek is a lot of fun. And it wasn't crowded, either.

I rode there a few times back in the day too. An enduro a couple times and one when the enduro wwas cancelled for weather! It was all snow and ice... Lots of fun on a YZ125.

I look forward to your report
