    I'd also be interested in a tubeless 19/17 set for a 2008ADV shipped to Brisbane

    We do have a lot of options for a wheel set for your R1150GS. The set without tire's and rotor's can be anywhere form 1600 for a good used set of oem size X-lace tubeless wheels, up to 2800 for a new set with our heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples laced with new oem rims, and new oem hubs.

    If you are riding more aggressive off-road and want stronger rims and possible a 21'', we can lace new excel aluminum rims with stock oem hubs and heavy duty Monzter stainless steel spokes/nipples. The set can be from 1800 for a set with tube type wheels using used oem hubs, and silver excel rims, all the way up to 2300 for black rims and sealing the rear.

    The only 21'' tubeless option we have is using oem hubs with the R100GS rim with our heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples. It can be up to 1300 for a full wheel with new parts.

    If you would like to order a set, it's best to contact us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

    thanks zach

    Hi,

    I did answer your pm's, but want everyone to know the answer's.

    We don't recommend ever relying on a "patch" unless you need to get somewhere to fix the issue properly. We can straighten, weld and machine the wheel to be safe again. Straightening is 100-250 per wheel depending on how bad, and welding/machining is 50-100 depending on the condition as well.

    Thanks zach

    Hi,

    We can build a set of wheels using 19/17 excel silver rims with billet hubs, stainless steel spokes/nipples, and sealed for tubeless tires. It would be 2180 + shipping for the set and it would include a new sprocket.

    We do have a very nice set with silver rims front is 2.5 x 19 excel, rear is 5 x 17 BEHR, oem hubs superlaced and sealed for tubeless tires, they are in great shape and are going for 1600 + shipping but they don't include tire's, rotor's or sprocket.

    Shipping to Australia would be around 130-170 per wheel depending on weight and how fast we ship it.

    If you would like to order a set of wheels it's best to contact us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

    Thanks zach

    What options are there for a cush drive hub for an xr400r other than RAD cush hub? What are the strongest wheels out there: Excel, Warp9, Cacr, etc?

    I want to buy a 3.5 x 18 rim with 32 dimpled holes, can you sell me that? The bike is an XR650L so it needs to be as good as the original DID rim. Thanks.

    Hi Woody,

    I was wondering what rim I could get for my 06 ktm 640 adventure dual disc front wheel. I need a good rim and spokes and get it laced up using my hub. Would appreciate your help. Thanks

    Can you tell me how a shop would know , or supposed to know the rear offset of hub in all particular models ?

    Is there a Manual That these specs are provided ,etc ?

    If you are sent a hoop and a hub from a customer and asked to lace it for a specific model , I'm guessing you would order spokes for application then lace , but to what specs

    How do you know where to put the hub in relation to the hoop ?

    Especially if diff size / width of hoop is supplied ?

    Is offset measured from the sprocket mounting surface or rotor mounting surface to edge of rim ?

    I am in a nightmare situation and Hope you can help .

    I have learned my lesson . :deal


    I think I know where my application needs to be , in fact , I know I know ,

    But a wheelbuilder here in the U.S. that I used just cant seem to get it.

    I sure don't think My app is an oddball .


    .Please Help me with This . :ear

    Ok Woody ,

    The application is for an xr650l.


    Service manual list offset as 19mm from outemost edge of rim to rotor mounting surface . Again 19mm

    I will give you the OE rim width since I do know it , It's 79mm



    The rim I'm using is an excel 4.25 wide , its width is 126mm


    What would the new distance be from rotor mounting surface to edge of rim ?
