KTM 950 front rim question

Hate to beat a dead horse, but after reading through all of the butter Behr front rim threads, I still can't find my answer...

Will this rim: http://www.radmfg.com/DID-Original-D...ido-21x185.htm fit my stock '06 950 adv hub and spokes? I realize its a jap drilled rim, but I seem to remember someone successfully using it... I can't find the post though to confirm it ?

Thanks

Jon

No, that jap drilled rim won't work. You need to buy the Euro drilled DID onl available through a KTM parts dealer.

You can have RAD Mfg supply their hub and lace the wheel up. But I've heard others complain the spacers never fit, need to be machined... And the spokes aren't as strong as the steel stock KTM ones. I did the DID swap using stock hub and spokes and it's worked really well so far as an inexpensive upgrade. When I thrash this wheel I'm going with Sun rims front and back from Buchanan... stronger then Excels.

Thats what I figured, i just found this... DID rim 21X185E6B01T from oemcycle.com. Fitment says 07+ 990. Wonder if that one will work?. Its only $156 online. Cheaper the better being so close to Xmas. I bent mine pretty bad on the cobdr this past September.

I used that rim on my 07 990 and it was perfect.

Can a dimpled like this one be drilled to work with larger spokes and nipples?

I have an Excel rim that is bent out of shape and is drilled and its non-dimpled.

Dimpled can use the stock spokes. Non-dimpled, like the SUN, needs special spokes that are longer. You can't interchange them.

For the record, the DID Dirtstar 21X185E6B01T wont fit a 950/990 , despite what all the online fitment guides say. Woodys hooked me up and was able to countersink/redrill it so I could still use it though. Not a total loss but still enough to be frustrating.

It can fit after widening and countersinking the spoke holes?

Sort of... One side of the rim laced up normal with stock spokes, the other side had the dimples pointing backwards. I sent the rim to woodys and they drilled and countersunk the rim but I still had to purchase 18 longer spokes for one side. The rim will have an x3 pattern with longer spokes on one side now, and the stock x2 pattern on the other.

I suppose I could have re-angled the spoke holes etc myself to make something work, but the cost was very minimal to have woodys do it... and my spokes and nipples were corroded, so I bought the heavy duty SS ones at the same time.

I put a Sun 3.5" on mine with the stock spokes. What's going to happen? I've put ~1000 miles on so far.

I am using a KTM 21" dirtbike indexed 36 hole Excel A-60, not one dent yet !!!! Crazy tough rim !
it had different indexing than the Adventure hub. The stock spokes will not work but offsets perfect with a spoke kit I got from CJ that he happened to have on the shelf
I was at Buchanans building a custom cush hub and they said they have the formula for making the spokes to fit an A-60 to an adventure hub
