    Silver tubeless rim(unanodized): $361
    Anodized clear or anodized black adds $35

    The billet hub, will cost a tad more than the BMW stock hub.

    Reply to question posed by KKTOS in our March sale thread, question:

    I'm thinking about a 21' front wheel for my 1200GS.

    Could you give me an estimate if:
    -1- I sent you the stock hub
    -2- you sell me a stock hub
    -3- you sell me your woody's made hub

    thanks,

    you've got the right thread,,,,FYI 1/16''=.0625'' on the left and the same on the right equals 1/8''=.125 TOTAL runout,,,

    we shoot for +/-.010-.015" or less total runout for street oriented bikes,,,,,thickness of a matchbook cover:thumb

    REMEMBER,,,when truing first loosen,,,,then tighten,,,then tighten evenly,,,,

    all spokes should sound the same,,,loosen the hi notes/pitch,,,patience,,AHHHHHHHHH:beer

    I talked to you onthe phone last week about a new set-up for my 2007 Touring KLR650.
    Please give a run down on price ok?
    My rims sent to you.

    Front 19" X 2 1/2" EXCEL rim GOLD
    Rear 17" X 5" EXCEL rim GOLD Anodized.
    with your thickest best spokes AND TUBELESS.

    Note: I talked with EAST COAST ... they said they can use ALPINA's Tubeless
    spokes on the EXCEL rims, and have had great luck with them. Can you do something like this? Seemed when we talked you were not too too confident in a tubeless setup for my bike.:cry

    Price total to K8V-4L2 Trenton Ontario Canada please.
    thanks again

    Chris, I need a price quote for a nice set of rims and tires that will transform my bike as Woody says. I ride 90 street and 10 off road. Black should be fine for rims do they have orange hubs available. Superlaced. I heard conti TKCs are good tires maybe you can suggest something else. I like riding the twisties with the occasional off road trek. PM me with info

    Thanks

    So I am looking for a Street setup for my 08 KLR, I do alot of trips and they seem to be either all pavement or mostly dirt. I'm thinking about getting a second set of rims for the street with some nice sticky rubber. I am going to be looking for a full setup, nothing is set in stone. I was thinking about maybe a 19 up front and a 18 on the rear. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks Darl

    Mike-

    A set with orange billet hubs and Stainless nipples is about $1490 this month. Normally $1590.

    Tires are about $200-250 for a set of tires. I would recommend a little more aggressive tire for the type of riding you're explaining. The Conti Road Attack's are the most on-road oriented, otherwise the D607, Anakee's, or Tourances are 80/20 tire's.

    If you're interested, e-mail me at: woodyswheelworks@gmail.com
    and I can get you a full quote.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Woody. Got a price on a the new premium Excel rim, blk with the silver stripe, laced onto a stock Husqvarna front TC450 hub, (mine). Will it need spokes too? Bike is an 06, wheel has been SXed into a good little wobble. Still rideable but far from perfect. Price to do the rear the same way too please if no trouble. Rear is still nice and tight/straight if it matters. Thanks.

    woody, would the wheels you recomended above be suitable for 100% road riding on a 950 or would you advise something different?

    I notice you prefer the 19/17 combo over the 17/17 setup, I'm after a new set of wheels so I can stop compromising on tyre selection and have 100% offroad tyres on my stock rims and 100% road tyres for hunting sports bikes.

    I'm happy to take advice based on your past experiences and go from there. cheers

    if you wanted to go 100% road riding then the 19/17 set up with street tires rules,,,this set up also allows the LARGEST selection of dual sport tires too,,,since it's the same combo used on all the bmw GS series bikes,,,,

    okey doke, as I said Im happy to take advice even though these will never have Dual sport rubber on them :D I want to go roadbike hunting

    can you give me a price for a set of 17/19 for a 950, with disks. not fussed on colors (silver or black is fine, whatever is cheaper). price isn't the major factor, good is (ie. will spend $50 bucks for a better component, not for a coloured rim if that makes sense?) and freight to Oz (doesn't need to be super fast, 3-4 weeks is cool). can email me if you want me to

    Huuuuuge big thanks to Chris and Jill, both very helpful and willing to spend time on the phone as necessary, answering my stoopit questions.

    Black Excel 7000's, 1.85/21 front and a 3.5/18 rear, both X3 with SS/SS and black RAD hubs . . . on the way. :clap

    Pics once they're both here with new shoes mounted up . . . and once I get my damned camera to work. :baldy

    Great crew you've got there, Woody. :thumb

    You can see prices here in post #738

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6579363&postcount=738

    Prices on KTM parts, just had 5-10% hike(means hubs are $10 more than, just a month ago).

    All other prices should be correct.

    Write me an e-mail if you're interested or want the exact quote: woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

    Hey Woody<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I’ve slightly bend front spoke wheel of my ’06 R1200GSA. Tried to fix it with spokes tension, but unsuccessful – it still bent. I can drive – it’s almost ok, with light vibrations at higher speeds, but I feel uncomfortable when know what front wheel is damaged. <o:p></o:p>
    I asked at BMW dealer for replacement and they told me, that there no rims for replacement – I should order whole wheel for more 1000,-€. <o:p></o:p>
    Other option could be to order only spoke rim for R1200GS (not adventrure and not black, but gray). Price will be around 340 €.<o:p></o:p>
    Who can tell me what’s the difference between GSA and GS spoke rims except colour? <o:p></o:p>
    Are there other options to replace rim – other supplier maybe? <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    P.S. Sorry for flood, as same topic I posted in Gspot<o:p></o:p>

    first ,,,,these wheels and rims are repairable,,,we do it everyday,,, that's the good news,,,the bad news is that you are over there and i am over here,,,,perhaps i should come and visit:wink:

    second,,,if your rim is bent you will never be able to true the wheel very well it has to be straightened first,:cry,,,you can tell a bent rim by looking carefully at the outer sidewalls of the rim/bead and you will see bulges and crazed anodizing where the spokes go through the bead:eek1,,,straightening your rim depends on how bendt,,$70 +/- to straighten your rim

    third,,, in the usa silver/grey 1200GS rims are circa $372 and complete wheels are $942 in either silver or black,,,,that means there are no black 1200GS Adv rims available,,,we routinely strip and re-anodize 1200 GS rims black costs circa $60 for satin black and $90 for shiny oem black,,circa $200 to r&r rim and retrue your wheel

    fourth,,,,perhaps if you have friends in usa,,they can bring back a new one and save you a lot of money beause of the good 1.5e+ =$1 exchange rate,,,or many people have brought their bendt wheels over here on vacation and i have repaired them on the spot,,,,BEWARE,,,you MUST call in first,,,i am always on the road:super

    holler how i can help,,,woody
