    Thanks Zach.
    I spotted the email from Chris on Saturday with shipping notification.
    I have been watching them for a few days and it looks like the parcel/s may be in Perth at the moment.

    I will keep you posted with their arrival + the obligatory pics etc..

    Great work guys.

    Greg.

    Waiting for my new wheel from Woody and after experiencing some hard roads and biting the dust several times in my latest trip, my fenders were smashed because they collided when bottomed so I had to repair and modify the lower ...
    [​IMG]

    and buy a new one high to receive Woody's decal and had to figure if I could position it on the highest part when relocating both the horn and brake hoses ...
    [​IMG]

    but it didn't work well on both extremes ...
    [​IMG]

    so had to return to the previous position ...
    [​IMG]

    and wait till customs frees my wheel ...
    Cheers,

    Hang in there Roberto... DEFINITELY worth the wait..:D

    Speaking of waiting - It seems Aussie customs may work a little faster than your mob mate.

    I received a package from Woody's (only one week in transit and clearance) that contained the mostest gorgeous'est front wheel I have seen.

    BEHOLD !!!!!
    [​IMG]

    This is the new ABS/TCS compatible XT1200Z 21" front wheel...........:clap
    I chose silver to be the only "sliver wheeled blue S10" on the planet. And to be different.
    I think its a great move and am really happy with the results thus far.

    [​IMG]

    The pic doesnt bode very well as the perspective is obviously way off, but I am liking what I see. Cant wait to get myself a new set of knobbies and head out with full ABS/TCS guns blazing.

    The 18" matching rear is probably in the air over Aussie soil as we read this, so a couple more days and I can fit both tires and get-er-done...

    Seriously - The guys at Woody's Wheel Works have been amazing to deal with. Pandering to my whimsicle mind changes over color and size, as well as single disk, double disk, ABS - no ABS

    I bow down in the presence of your work guys: [​IMG]

    Great job.

    Greg.

    P.S - I remind you Southern hemisphere guys - I have a black 21" x 1.85" dual disc non ABS front wheel with SuperLight WWW hub, and a black 21" x 1.65" (A60) single disc non ABS front wheel with SuperLight WWW hub sitting here waiting for a good home. Both wheels are brand new (well the A60 has been used in the dirt once), so contact me for further info.

    I managed to get some time to machine up some small boss's for the fork leg protector mounts and a split ally boss for the mudguard (ctr of steering stem) mount bracket. Will replace the cap screws with stainless button heads at assembly.

    I will break out the TIG and weld the prototype fork guard's up tomorrow (mild steel sheet) and then paint them up for the weekend. Will blast and powder-coat them during next week.
    I can then start working on getting the brake lines and the guides in place to complete the job.

    Will probably look at getting these laid in Carbon Fibre later.
    [​IMG]

    This works exceptionally well.
    I will powder-coat this as well but cut some more in stainless at a later date.

    I mentioned previously that Woody was sending (now arrived:clap) me some shiney new SILVER Woody's Wheel Work's super duty wheels for the WASPmobile... An upgrade from the non ABS/TCS wheels I first had, these are now 21" x 1.85" dual disc ABS and TCS compatible front, and OEM hub (therefore ABS/TCS compatible) 18" x 2.5" rear. .

    The change from the OEM wheels is simple and takes around 40mins combined.
    The front is set up with KTM disc's already installed, and I need to use the original encoder ring from the 19" OEM + the ABS backing plate during swap over.
    The rear utilizes the OEM disc and encoder ring at swap over.

    I opted for silver because:
    1/ I've never really liked the look of black wheels on my bikes.
    2/ No one else has a blue S10 with silver wheels:evil - Who knows, maybe it'll start a new trend..

    I have tested the 21" wheel both on-road and off-road AND I LOVE IT..!!!! so I have really been hanging out to install and trial the slimmer but bigger diameter 18" rear wheel.
    In theory it should actually modify the speedo reading to now show accurately - BONUS...

    The new 21" ABS wheel rocked up on Tuesday and the 18" rear was not far behind arriving this morning, so while I was close by the Motorradgarage warehouse in Perth I dropped by on the off chance they would have some suitable tires (I knew bloody well that they would have:wink:).
    I chose the Mefo StoneMaster for their DOT approval and high load/high speed rating.
    Sizes are 140/80-18" and 90/90-21.

    Feels good inside just knowing that there is some decent chunky knobs clawing at the ground now.
    I only hope the big S10 doesnt go ripping them to shred's (or turning them on the rim's:cry) when the loud grip is twisted.

    Finally some chunky rubber knobs:thumb

    Front wheel - on..
    [​IMG]

    Rear wheel - on.
    [​IMG]

    A bit of high mount guard + fork leg protector goodness.
    [​IMG]

    Dont worry Woody - I havent forgotten the sticker, I just want to clean the bike first:deal
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I just have to linish the guards up now and paint them (will powder-coat later).
    I also have to sort out the brake hose routing and guides, but I know what the plan is there and I will be onto that during the coming week.

    More ride reports/reviews to come, as well as a lot more pics once I have painted the bits and cleaned the bike...:D

    UNREAL JOB WOODY'S WHEEL WORK'S


    Thanks so much team... I could not be more impressed with the fitment and quality of work, plus you guys are extraordinary to deal with - I really feel like part of your team and family.

Ive got 2500k's approx on mostly dirt roads to cover, from Julia ck to the tip, so I was looking for a knobby front that would be up to the task.:wink:. any feed back would be great.

    Went for the n'th time to the Post Office and found a big parcel waiting to pick it up so I strapped it to the toy bike ...
    [​IMG]

    so I unpacked and searched for my decals, cap and shirt but only found a wheel in black ... no brake discs (not ordered)so I placed one of my new OEM in place but Yamaha only had 5 screws ... the other side will be fitted with provisional SS 6mm until I get the proper (90149-06043)
    [​IMG]

    tomorrow I'll fit 90x90x21 Heidenau K60 with a reinforced tube ... and order my rear 18" with SCREWS ... lol ... and hope it comes with the stickers.
    Cheers,
    Roberto
