Can't believe nobody's interested in this wheel?

This was on my 2008 KTM 690 SMC. Woody's Wheel Works built with 19" Excel 7000 Series rim, Rad Eagle hub, and Heidenau K60 Tire.

Asking $500 plus shipping. Been trying to part with this for over a month, so I'm willing to negotiate...

Why would anybody want a 19 inch wheel, not to mention the tire? You'll own that thing for a very long time.

Not to be a turd, but this isn't the sell-your-stuff section so I thought I could be direct.

As for the request..... :










I assured the doctor that I only needed Velcro instead of all that fancy schmancy titanium and stuff....he just rolled his eyes .....
Uncle Ged,

Not just any Velcro, Commercial Grade Velcro! As you know, it works for anything that ails you or your bike. BTW you must have had quite a tumble to inflict that damage. Silt trail section in Baja? Hope you are fully healed up now.

Cheers,

I would buy it if the spokes where the stock size and not "Superlaced"
I want to flat track my 690 next summer, so a 19" is on my to get list.

I have an 08 as well and it was always hard to start after it sat in the garage for any length of time. I was lucky enough to live in Las Vegas and the home of Dyno Jet. My bike was used as a mule for the 2008 map for the Power Commander V. After the tune and the install of the Power Commander my bike starts with ease.

I would make sure that your bike has the latest maps provided by KTM to see if it helps.

I was lucky enough to break my right fibula with a spiral fracture but avoid any surgery. I limped around for 6 days before deciding maybe I might have broken something, and it was not just a bad sprain! Cast for a month. I am ten weeks out from the(skateboard induced) injury and back riding motorcycles and bicycles and easing back into running. Haven't been back on skateboards yet, but I think my sports ankle braces arrived in the mail today so back longboarding soon. My only conclusion from this is that breaking bones sucks!!!! One more thing....after months off of my 690, my first ride back just reminded me how much this bike rules! Instant goofy smile as the roost flies!

You want the wheel, but don't like the lacing and spoke size?

Is there a spec rule this wheel violates?

Big spokes are stronger and I would rather the spoke bend a little if I drop the wheel into a wash going 90 mph instead of having the rim taco sending the spoke into the tube. Watched a guy do that with a 990 ADV front wheel after hitting a log hard. The fat spokes didn't seem to help him that much, the wheel was junk and he was walking. Also, rotating mass is always a nice thing, especially for no good reason....

Feel better now?

You noticed nippybit start the sentence with "Uncle Ged" ? I never realized nippybit was that old ...

You're right, we should quit showing that picture:



Crank might think these are oversize spokes and get angry ...

Gros Buck,

I am so old that when I was born the Dead Sea was not even sick!

How long did you guys run those engines with noise before it went catastrophic? Just curious.
Just saw this now.

For me im not totally sure, I was wearing ear plugs. If I had to guess I'de say 100 - 150k I certainly hadn't noticed it at the last gas stop. Maybe it was the oil I was using... we should have an oil discussion for sure
