    so here we go....
    a special place for all the Super Tenere afficianados and their wheel problems and visions et,etc

    1,,i'll collate as much info/FAQs i put in other threads into this one....

    2,,,what's the thought regarding using but one disc with the 21????;;i'm positive i'll be removing circa 2.2Kg/5lbs with my Superlite conversion

    3,,,thee's several game plans i have in mind for you tenere riders..from least to more expensive$$$.

    a,,for beefier /stronger /more durable oem 19'' wheel ,,go with a
    relace n true with my new beefier ss spokes and ss nipples kits,,no mods needed circa $260 $149 for new supersized ss n ss spoke kit + $111 Superlace n true with one year warranty

    b,,wanna go std 2.5x19 [$236/silver] or 1.85x21 [$215]double signature excels using my ''Monzter spoke kits..allows you to use conventional lace techniques,,hence,, most everyone can lace n true them....the monzter spoke kits allow use of stock hub and a beefier /stronger rim ,,,,,the ss spoke and ss nipplle kit= $180 [$20 less with Zartan nipples]and Superlace n true = $111.....OBTW,,the 19 could be sealed for tubeless = $99

    c,,next step is using Superlite billet hubs,,, with oem discs n hardware/use of torque management system,,,would require we make new hub

    d,,the other alternative is what we're checking into now is modifying th eexisting Superlite I or Superlite II hubs with a new ST1100 specific disc adapter kit,,no abs...FYI the Superlite hub accepts use of all the wavy /floating galfer rotors thus saving even more weight with improved braking,,Galfer green pads add even better feel and stopping power

    here`s Wasp-mans finished 1.85x21 / 2.5x18 with TKC adapter

    and here are several links to other threads from Wasp-man himself,,super good reading n pics

    Hi Woody ... been thinking the conversion but with the OEM hub and disks replacing the rim and spokes ... I would take care of the fender and brake lines ... that way we would keep the electronics (ABS and Traction control).

    hi Roberto ,,
    well that is one road to Rome,,that's option ''b'' i wrote of in my post,,,using the oem hub n discs keeps all your ABS and traction control capabilities..

    for those wanting a simpler stronger 19'' we have the Monzter ss spoke kit conversion

    or ya can switch to a 21''too for improved off-road capabilities.

    while we had the first Tenere show up at our shop ,,we took a bunch of measurements and noticed that this bike would be a great candidate for a dual braided steel brake line kit,,,it would eliminate the crossover,,be safer and improve feel/response....we took all the measurements and proper angles for creating a kit

    what say you all to that???

    Difficult choice.
    I like a lot the idea of a 21” wheel to improve off road capability and the ground clearance.
    But also I don’t like to loose the ABS anb TC. It’s not possible to keep them with the 21” wheel?

    Hi Woody ... If I send you a hub (OEM) could you fit the 21" rim (1.85 or 2.15) with SS spokes? ... the dual ss brake line kit is interesting and would be great if supplied from the brake calipers up to the distribution manifold only ... the upper hoses to the brake/clutch deposits have been modified in length (+ 1 ") by somebody in USA so no work to be done there ... when the kit is ready let me know so I can work on modifying the front fender raising it a couple of inches. Remember I have all plastics duplicated in fiberglass so making a front fender is simple, then I would have a 19 and 21 set for city and offroad use with different tyres. The back wheel setting would only need the braided ss brake line kit.
    Cheers,
    Roberto

    Your answer:
    we can make all of it happen,,,tentatively,, i should have a Super T in my shop shortly for last minute measurements..,,if ya have no designs on the rest of the rim n spokes,,it would help me greatly to have them for show n tell,,,before n after pics etc.

    i assume ya want a black rim??

    PS all you guys asking about rim conversions,,i posted yesterday ,that unless greg insists i keep answering these questions here,,'mthinks the new thread may be the more appropriate place in the vendor forum:

    as long as you keep your hub with the sensor ring [option ''b''] you should be fine.....remember 'option ''b'' is a Superlace kit using your oem hub as a basis for the build.

    FYI,once we get another oem wheel in ,,,we are going to double check the feasibility of just going for a Superlite hub incorporating the TC ring/sensor..

    any busted Tenere wheels out there as organ donors for this project???

    Ok. Then probably option b is the best for me.
    The different rim diameter doesn’t affect the ABS or TC?
    Could you tell me the price? The problem is going to be all the transport cost and legal paperwork to send you the hubs and turn back to Spain…
    Thanks

    hi jaumev,,,

    i'd like to give you a definitive answer on the 21'' conversion,,,what i can tell you is that on all the bmws..ktms etc that we have swapped wheels we have had no issues...nor have i heard of any,,,now this bike with TC,,,???

    i'll do some checking,,,i realize that so many of you who PM'd and e-mailed me,,,didn't concern themselves with the TC because they always turn it off,,like most riders with ABS turn that system off when off-roading,,,,

    will check,,and the rest of you wizards out there please chime in to,,,,

    From an email sent to woody last night...

    Hey Woody,

    Well those wheels ya sent me for me CRF 450 are bloody great mate. Bloody brilliant...And the misses loves the shirt.

    Now for my next problem mate. I saw ya thread on Wasps, (gregs) site for wheels for them new SuperTens.

    I have meself a 2010 SuperTenere and am wanting to change that front wheel of mine to a 21inch to improve off road ability, (In black) the only problem is that I want it to look as original as possible, can this be done????
    If I cannot get the front looking like the original I might have to replace both rims...

    I read ya options on gregs site and option B is for me but I am keen to keep the OEM braking systems for ABS etc.

    What other bits and pieces do I require to make this happen, adapter kits etc... Obviously the front fender needs raising but is there anything else that I am missing...

    Look forward to your reply, I have been a bit slack and will do a bit more research on her with regards to this changeover over the next few days.

    Thanks woody, keep up the good work mate, :thumb

    You are a bloody top bloke Woody. Thanks for getting on top of this for us.

    Look forward to seeing the product. I reckon I will just go with the complete set, both front and back excel rims in black. Could I go with a 4x17 rear like whats on me big Kato at the moment. I like the way those 908's fit on those 4 inch rims, They look so tough, should clear the swing arm..

    Will be watching in interest mate,

    Hi Woody,

    I will be in Dever in August. If i give you enough warning can you install new rims and heavier spokes on my Tenere ans still keep the ABS, Traction Control and tubeless tires?

    Will the BMW GS rims work in the design?
