    Due to my Strom-mixing build, i had some experience with v-Strom wheels in 2008/2009, see http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/board,82.0.html

    - all rear rims are virtually the same, share 6204 bearing and spacers. ABS doesn´t matter, even the brake dics are the same ones. Spacers are the same dimension, even while they added an ABS sensor. Sprocket carrier for 650 and thou is little different due to the corrected offset ( "Master Mike Spacers" )
    - front rims 2002-2006 are all the same, sharing 6204 bearings for 650 and thou. Thou is still the same all years.
    - front rims 2007-2011 on the 650 are 6203 bearings and smaller axle, but share the Speedo - spacer-wise it´s also the same

    All V-Strom -2011 have 204mm wide Steering stem ( some say, 203,8mm )

    650 model 2012 has changed somehow - don´t know things exactly, yet. But they changed Speedo from front wheel to sprocket, so be prepared for different spacers.



    You dont wanna build spoked rims with ABS, do you ?

    Am ordering a set of hubs, rims and spokes for a 2006 DL 1000.

    Anyone played off road with them?

    Took mine for a bit of a spin on some fire roads the other day. Nothing to report so I figure all good, although I only have a RAD rear wheel.

    Ordered a set of hubs from Rad tonight for the 1000, tried to order a set of stringed rims but crap they are slack with their communication.

    Will look elsewhere for a 18" X 2.75" rear rim and 21" X 2.15" front rim...any suggestions??

    G'day Woody,

    Have you sighted a 2012 Vstrom 650 yet and are there any changes that will make you unable to fit the existing spoked wheel solution you have engineered to it? I'm interested in a set of spoked wheels for my 2012. Not sure if you have engineered a hub to incorporate the ABS ring (like you are doing for the Super Ten as have followed that thread closely)?

    Cheers

    Wilmo

    I'm up here in Alaska. I mounted a set of Mitas on a buddies V Strom 1000 with Woody's wire wheels last July. Sorry for the scratches Woody, Mitas are stiff. I don't know if he took it with him or sold it up here, but it looked pretty damn sweet with the wire wheels.

    Hi,

    We can get a set of hub's made by RAD, but need the wheel's or donor bike to get spec's off the wheel's in order to give to RAD to have hub's that will fit the oem rotor's/abs and sprocket.

    A set would be around $1,750-2,000 for a set with billet hub's, excel rim's superlaced with heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples, and if you want them sealed for tubeless tire's too.

    If you want to order a set, it would take around 4 week's to get the set built, depending on how fast RAD will make the hub's. We have a lot of interest, but no one pulling the trigger to get a set going.

    Thanks Zach

    Hey, can someone send me the measurements for this hub? I'd like to use it for a 1993 GSXR 750 front end I have on my adventure/cafe (built out of a CX500). The 93 GSXR750 front wheel has a mechanical drive speedometer, which I believe the DL650 does as well. So I'm hoping the width is the same, the brake rotor mounting surface width is the same (95mm), and the rotor bolt pattern and spacing are the same.

    If you could help me out here I'd appreciate it!

    Charles.

    Bent 05 Vstrom front wheel. Just wondering if fixing my bent rim or buying a spoked front wheel. Fixing would be cheaper but if it isn't a lot more, I might fork out for a spoked rim.
