i wouldn't say it's wrong,,hell i may check it out with the researchers if Superlites stand a chance against Viagra,Cialis etc this is the second malady that comes..oops wrong play on words

the other affliction has to do with admire-itis,,,guys hanging the wheels up on their walls or putting em on the coffee table and procrastinating from mounting them,,geeze another wrong choice of words...

several guys at the rally this weekend forewarned others of this disease while they were slobbering/drooling over our display table...

so drooling/slobbering is the third known abherent behavior that these wheels elicit

at days end,,,the good news is all these afflictions will pass on after putting em to use,,who knows some of you may have other symptoms show up i wasn't aware of

Keep us posted,,perhaps we'll start another thread forewarning our fellow inmates of these maladies

all the OEM hubs n parts arrived!!!!

just returned from the Altrider/Jimmy Lewis Taste of Dakar Rally near Death Valley last weekend to find a bunch of OEM ST hubs, for Thagua's 21/18 project,,

will come in tomorrow to measure up the spoke lengths for the Monzter kits... we did a quick measurement of all the spacers /bearings for the two different hubs....

OEM ST hub complete circa 5lbs 6oz= 86oz= 2438 grams
vs
Superlite ST-II = dual disc set-up complete 2lbs 9.5oz= 41.5oz= 1175 grams

Superlite ST-I single disc set-up complete = 35 oz= 992 grams

FYI,,,the ST adapters are .23oz ea/65grams x 6per side=1.4oz/39.6 grams per side
pics n story to follow
gotta run

Hello Woody ... I have completed and installed the front fender ready to receive the 21" wheel including the extension of the brake line that crosses from one side to the other ... we need a double brake SS line system ... Jaxon is the man





Cheers,
Thagua

Pics and Info for the new Woody's 21" Superlite ST Wheel assembly...


hi there,,,back in Denver town,,,and this is what i found waiting to be shipped to Wasp man....the complete assy ,,,spacers,,,discs and all as seen weighs in just under 15lbs/6.75Kg...

so ,the pickle is the 310mm rotors we sourced from KTM/galfer/Braking are 5mm thick...Greg confirmed the oem ones are 4.5mm thick...usually the larger rotors are 5mm thick when used for Super-motard work for better heat dissipation....if i can source 4.5mm thick units that'll be another weight tsaving,,,

IMHO,,,using these on the single dsic versions would be a better set-up for heat dissipation purposes...i really do not think under normal desert riding racing that heat will be an issue,,,these issues show up mostly in motard/road-racing type of braking...

so we'll see what else i can do to come up with weight reduction,,,by the time we mount tires/tubes i believe we'll still end up lighter than the OA oem 19'' assy...not to mention the improved handling capability of the 21''

the single disc unit is awaiting a silver rim and thagua's stuff is at the anodizers...will keep ya posted

320mm rotor capability???,,,Single disc or dual disc???

greg n i have been discussing the possibility of 320mm rotor on the single disc version ,,here's his findings


I went and measured/photographed the front of the bike to evaluate the 320mm disc fitment possibility…. Don’t see it’s going to be an easy or even possible fit.
There is only around 2.5mm clearance on radius from the disc O.D to the caliper swept radius.


You can see in the pic above and below, the caliper mount casting at the bottom of the forks is around 15mm thick and not conducive (or probably mechanically correct) to flogging the holes oversize to move the caliper outboard.
I could machine an adaptor plate to swing the caliper out/down, but would it be worth it? – I dunno..?


It wont be too much trouble at all to either modify an OEM brake line clamp, or to manufacture a new clamp for the R.H side for dual disc set ups.



we're building a single disc version of the Superlite ST-S the dual disc designation will be Superlite ST-D

so by going single disc we'll have the folowing benefits /weight savings..

Superlite-ST-S

1,,,A-60=15+% stronger than double signature Excels comes in black only with silver racing stripe circa $200 versus $291 for black 1.85x21 Excel

weighs lbs versius lbs = lb saving

2,,, one disc and mounting hardware saves lbs

3,,one less caliper saves=
crossover brake line and double banjo bolt save=

4.,,,i'm positive that the existing master cylinder will not provide adequate brake pressure...all the Sumo kits using 320mm single disc come with smaller master cylinder piston diameters,,more on that later

FYI,,we have alot of experience building super tuff and durable wheels for the long distance racer/advriders so the 21'' single disc solution is a quantum leap in hard off-road riding

one last comment is for the 21'' dual disc set-up....i'm not a big fan of the low across the fender X-over brake line set-up....however in our ST scenario,,,i'm entertaing the idea of using a X-over line with the exception that it comes all the way up the right side and then goes down to the left caliper....we'd achieve the desired result and it would allow all the existing components...at a much reduced cost..using braided sss line would also enhance the brake feel

Hey Greg ... those were mine ... I have ready the high fender for these wheels ... we need the double brake hoses running from the top ... here a preview of the fender with the low one still attached.
