    Hi sidestand,

    are you linked to the company Rugged Roads?
    It seems like those corrugated wall are the same ones I saw behind a very nice Africa Twin Boano that was displayed in the Africa Twin Thread.
    I recon that this inmate is located in New Forest, England and you are in Ireland though.
    Nice bike though, my next investment will deifinitely be on CapoNord Wheels.

    NICE.

    Excuse my ignorance, but I’ve been trying to find out more about caponord rims here in Blighty.

    I’m assuming these rims aren’t made by Aprilia, does anyone know who the manufacturer is?

    Sidestand, has woody used KTM hubs? Can you give me an idea of total cost including p&p to the UK.

    Cheers.

    Do you know what lens and body the guy who took it has? :)

    I think the ABS ring is not part of the hub, it might be screwed in, just like the brake disks.

    Since nobody asked it, can the caponord rims be laced to the standard hubs with the caponord spokes, or do we need special spokes???

    not a bad lens, if can make f4 at 240mm, probably the short end of a tele, if not paired with a 2x magnifyer)))

    I just ordered a set of the Caponord tubeless (19/17") for my Adventure last week. I can't wait to get them.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Since I'll be reducing the size of the diameter of the rear tire by 1" and keeping the same profile tire (i.e. 150/70), I'm considering getting a new sprocket for the rear to keep revs down at speed. How many teeth should I go down on the rear? <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:stockticker>AND</st1:stockticker>, does anyone have recommendations on some good aftermarket sprockets?<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I'll keep my stock sprocket for when I want to change back to the 18" rear for my more gnarly plays in the dirt. <o:p></o:p>

    Did you get a second Cush drive?

    I like 17/45 for dirt/DS use. (21/18" rims)

    Swap to 17/42 for Street use. (19/17" rims)

    All you need to do is swap the rear axle block 180 Deg and you shouldn't need to even adjust your chain.

    The SM and SD have a shorter chain, so they can run an even smaller rear sprocket for higher speeds. The smaller you go in the rear sprocket the longer the wheel base gets. I find that 17/41 w/ my 17/17" SD wheel setup works pretty good for general use. Stable and geared about right for general use.
