The ABS and TC is done with math formulas and I doubt wheel changes will effect it.

My wife had the F650GS twin, and I tried to lower it some with low profile rear tire (about 1/2" OD smaller) and the ABS refused to work with that tire because it was too small compared to the front OEM. Doubt this will be an issue on the Yamaha tho.

This link doesn't specify, but they do have a patent for the system, it is not ordinary.

This Yamaha's TC and ABS might be inovative, but I doubt they don't use front vs rear wheel speed as an important variable. All the math in the ABS/TC algorithm is done with some fixed values. Standard speed relation between front/rear axels is probably one of them

so i talked with the tech dept at yamaha motor corps today...

they were very nice and were clueless as to what would happen with diameter changes....i let them know that we have quite a few souls waiting anxiously for an answer....their technician promised to pursue it further,,i told him i would share any learnings from our end as i have always done in the past....

and ''while your at it would you be willing to check parts availability'' on the list of front /rear parts listed in another post...he assured me of an answer shortly..we'll see

let's empowr ''Dave '' to get us some results...

HOLY MOLY!!!! as i'm typing up this post ''Dave '' called back with the good news that all the parts are in Japan and clued me in on how to get em drop shipped to to my local yamaha dealer

FYI the part numbers were accurate save for an updated number on the 5 lil screws holding the sensor plate.. the correct/updated # is :
90149 05030 instead of # 90149 05029

he re-iterated that the official Yamaha answer is "We cannot give you an answer about this modification . It is against company policy.''..well, i get that reply all the time. If i based my universe on the corporate MO i'd still be stuck in the toules.

well it's monday in denver ,,so all the dealerships are closed...i'm ordering 3 or 4 sets of hubs/components tomorrow.
and that's the latest news from the Mile-Hi city

woody

PS : FYI,,,greg's Superlite/Superlaced ST special hub is coming along,,will get some pics today .

Well, this “company policy” doesn’t help at all. Difficult decision if we don’t know how different wheels affect the ABS and TC….

that's why ya have guys like me ,ready willing and able to sail outside 'the harbors of the known'....and come back and let ya know 'what's out there'..

today i'll order up several sets of front and rear hubs....i'll also order up a front sensor plate because if i'm to build a Superlite hub ...i'm aiming at having my hub interface with the oem sensor plate....to keep cost down..

currently my aim is to get a wheel assy together so,that it will be as hassle free as yanking the wheel to swap/repair a tire.

no matter what,,we'll have a 21 wheel built on an oem hub within the month...and then we'll KNOW
later

Sounds good Woody, what ever it takes mate. "If you build it they will come" I think I have heard that somewhere before....

Hey, with regards to gregs Superlite ST wheel set 001. Has he gone with the 21"/18" Combo or did he decide to stay with OEM sizes...just interested...

Any progress pics. Thanks again mate.

the transformation of the Superlite-II hub into Super Tenere Superlite hub assy

greetings from the Rocky Mountains...figured i'd give you all a lil picture tutorial on how to transform the Superlite II hub used on all the BMW R1200GS and HP-2 series bikes...

here's the evolution from bar stock to finished disc brake adapter it widens the superlites disc mounting surface width to match the ST's width allowing the continued use of KTM brake rotor bolt pattern...





Here's the center spacer being made,,it converts the 30mm x47 OD x9mm wide bearings to 22mm axle diameter as used on your STs started out as 1.5'' 6061-T6 bar stock ,,,weighs in at 1.6oz / 45.34g

there's the Superlite-II hub with the new 6906 2RS bearings installed,,,these bearings are also used on all the KTM Adventure LC-4s and LC-8s...2ea 9mm wide bearings side by side ie 4 total in front hub have more load carrying capacity than the single bearing set-up in your STs...and we pre-pack em all with more and better waterproof bearing grease.,,there's the 2'' bar stock for the outside spacers.
From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development

the final touch ..your Superlite ST outer spacers...form and function with a hint of beauty...dedicated to Greg the Wasp-man without whose data they wouldn't be ready to roll today...

what the basic set-up will look like,,this trick wheel is going on a street rod special YZF ....powdercoated satin black spokes...and a really special anodized rim and hub assy.

Yes... a long silence...
A new question: with the 18” rear wheel, do you think there is enough space in the swing arm to put a tire with big knobs?
