I made sure to clearance the back of the bracket so that it sits nice and flat on the clamp:

Laugh Wheel rebuild

My rear wheel was pretty shot after several years of hard use. The rear wheel is a known weak spot(if the bike gets used hard) on an otherwise solid bike.

Blue dots show the broken spokes.


I bought a new rim to replace the dented and bent original rim and got Buchanon's to make me some 8 guage stainless spokes to replace the stock spokes.

All set for lacing:


Note the size difference in the new spokes vs. the old spokes. These should handle a bit more abuse


The lacing went smoothly


I don't own a truing stand, so I made one from some scrap wood


A dial indicator means I can get a good result. I ended up with +/- 0.5mm runout . The manual says +/- 2mm is ok.


My wheel takes special tabbed washers to keep the sprocket bolts from loosening. I just drilled the nuts for safety wire instead.

Handlebars

Corey,

I ordered a handlebar conversion kit (speglierusa lsl handlebar conversion ) for my sv1000s. I should get them in around the first week in January. If u would be down in trying it out I would love the help. Comes with SS brake line in the front and rest of cables will fit. It involves that and installing new grips. Also need to adjust my levers ( gear shift and rear brake ) as I dropped my foot pegs about 1 inch and now the angle is awful. So let me know man, would prolly save me around 400 bucks. Plus i would love the knowledge.


Let me know.

Ps

I lost your number, my daughter wanted to see it swim. Lol

I'll help you out. Lever adjustments are easy we can do those before the rest of your stuff comes in. I'll text you my number.

I'm in!

Planning to bring the TW back from WV weekend after next, and I've got a few things I'd like to do. Nothing real complicated, but I'm a -5 on a 1-10 scale of mechanical skill.

-Install bigger tank
-Install handlebar risers
-Beefier footpegs
-Remove plastics and repaint them (I could probably do this myself but what the hey)
-Still need to track down a cluster for it

Open to other suggestions as well to make this thing fit me better. Can't beat the price to fun ratio of it, just want to make it a bit more comfy and functional. I know your schedule can be hectic, so waiting isn't a problem. Let me know when you have some time open and I'll plan to bring it up your way. I'll bring the beer/pizza/etc.

Cory,
Thanks for the towing service

That XT Rocks ~ Sure beats the heck out of pushing that big Husky 610 out of the woods.

It was my pleasure. I hadn't done any towing before, so I was glad of the opportunity. Besides, I don't get to be faster than a TE610 very often
