    PS..if ya go with a 19''up front ,,,you could just stay with your 17 rear,,get it trued up circa $55 and seal it for $99.... doing a 60/40 ride split would work with this provided the 40 is geared to fire-roads...remember people take their 19/17 oem shod wheels in the roughest of terrain..ya just can't go too fast!!!

    Really like the Stelvio but it's rear rim is 5-1/2"'s wide and could not get a good gravel road tire on it. Sent it off to Woody's to get a 4-1/4" installed. Talked to Zack today, it's quite a process. Custom drilled Excel 36 spoke rim, special ordered spokes because of hub spoke angle and on top of it all they have to anodize the rim black. Super lace, all SS spokes and nipples and a seal job. All for under $700.00. These guys are the best man! Will post pictures when I get it back wearing a TKC 80

    Hi Woody

    Regarding the MEGAMOTO. in order to not damage the precious stock blue cast wheels when riding some dirt ..

    I am looking for:

    A front 17" black tubeless spoked rim that allows to fit on the hub two 320 discs. and that leaves space to the 4 piston stock calipers.

    Could you use the rim and spokes from the BMW supermoto front 17" wheel for the HP2 Enduro?
    I am asking this to optimize costs in case of buying a BMW SuperMoto set for the HP2 enduro. As soon as i am planning to use a rear 17" black tubeless spoked wheel for the HP2 Enduro that allows up to 160 rear tire.

    If not possible to use the HP2 Enduro supermoto front rim, would you use a GS1200 front spoked hub taken from its 19" stock wheel?
    then i will use a rear 17" tubeless spoked wheel coming from a GS1200.

    this setup will use avon distanzia 120/70/17 tires ..rear 160/60/17, do not need wider rear rim for a 180.

    Thank you very much.

    Remember my invitation to Spain still stands :freaky

    Hey Woody,

    These are new wheels on the same bike, can these be fixed or need to be replaced?

    I'm going to do a 18" rear conversion on my F800GS. You recommended a 2.5" width. I'm going to want to use a more road oriented tire 80% of the time. What would be the largest size I could use easily on the 2.5" rim. I was thinking a 3.5 would be better for me to running a 140/80. Thoughts?

    well Rapid Dog if anyone has taken on stuff like this and made it usable again your're talking to him,,,,

    are those Dirt-Stars???,,7000 series is tougher than the 6000series to straighten,,the rim need to be partially unlaced in order to be able to do the straightening,,,hey ,,,its junk now so all we can do is see what happens,,if it doesn't work we do not charge,,,we'll just install another hoop new or used got everything from patching to perfection:wink:

    FYI,,,those dents look like $100-120 to straighten and true..

    NOTE!!!! when dented like that PLEASE do not hammer on them,,it invariably leads to the rims cracking ...thus necessitating welding etc

    the 2.5 width is optimal for mostly dirt oriented use,,with the proper tires it works finon the street,,if you're on the street more than the dirt we use a 3.5 x18..it's narrower than the 4.25 which can bend too easy sticking way out to the left/right of center-line...it works better on the the 140/70 lower profile...

    remember the lower the profile the stiffer the tire will be on the road,,ie the sidewalls are almost vertical so they don't flex nor want to distort and tuck under the main thread.:thumb

    herre's a tire fitment chart link to my website..peruse it and notice the correlation between aspect ratio and rim width:beer

    this maybe the wrong place to ask but what sizes of tires will work on a stock 2006 KLX250s?

    I feel the urge to replace the rim and spokes of my Bonneville T-100's front wheel (2.5 X 19).

    [​IMG]

    How much to replace them with something more weather resistant and sturdy?

    Do I send the whole wheel or just the hub?

    Thanks.

    When I have you do my F800 18" conversion would it be better to just send you the hub? I'm thinking because I'll be doing the jumbo SS spokes and nipples all you would need is the hub right?

    we usually prefer getting complete wheels ...that way we we have a sense of what's up with the wheel ,,,,damages it incurred affecting the hub and most importantly the offset.

    components that have certain value,we usually give some trade in for,,otherwise i give something in return like either cut you some slack on $$ or do a lil extra work like polish or bead-blast or give ya t-shirts:thumb

    send er in

    Thanks for the estimate Woody. The wheel will be on the way as soon as I remove the tire.

    Is there a preferred way to package or box the wheel?
