I have an XR650L and need the wheels trued, superlaced, "made round," and can you install new wheel bearings? Can you give me a ball park cost. Going to send one wheel at a time starting with the front. I have removed brake disks and sprocket, wheel strip and tire.
ok,,,here's some ball park prices
R&R bearings =$30-40/wheel
superlace n true =$111/wheel
ss n ss heavy duty spoke kits =$100/125 front/ rear
rims if necessary $180-210 silver excels
straightening your old rims circa $30-100 ea
I'd like to get 18/21 combo of the strongest rims you have superlaced to the stock hub and the wheel bearing dealt with. Dont want too narrow on the front as i do about 50/50 on road and rough offroad. I'd like black rims...please let me know what this will cost me.
hi just under a grand with one year warranty free t- shirt or www cap included
could be closer to $900 i just did some quick figures in what's left of my head
sounds good.....question: If i have 11000 miles on the bike without bearing problems, am i OK? Are all of the hubs bad or just some. I've got a fair amount of offroad and a ton of wet weather riding on these wheels.
my take is that there was a bad batch of possibly circa 100 or so hubs that wound up in the system,,most were evident in 2008 and earlier plus a sprinkling of em in 2009 model year based on the feedback from folks reporting in...
what i've also learned is that the problem on the disc side has been alleviated with a bore machined to the oem specs... HOWEVER,,the sprocket side is still undersized by circa .0005''-.001'':eek1:huh',,,,FYI correct spec is .001'' smaller than the 47mm bore....hence like all the previous failed hubs you are bound IMHO to experience premature bearing failures on this side from now on ,,only later...:eek1...and of course we still end up repairing the undersized bore...
FYI most disc side bearings went south within 3-8000miles i'd bet the sprocket side bearings will fail prior to 15- 20,000 miles
sorry,,that's just the way it is
tks for the info....you'll be seeing my wheels this winter. What is the best way to ship as far as packaging goes? Shoudl i call or email before i send them re instructions.
just follow the instructions on the back of my website listed below..
Following the rules is exactly what I didn't do. Hopefully they have gotten my wheel by now though.
Do i need to break down the wheels prior to shipping? by that i mean do i have to dismount the tires, take off the brake rotors and sprocket?
hi,,it all depends on what you want me to check,,,when someone sends in the complete wheel sprockets n all we;; we give you an honest analysis of what's up,,,we check all your bearings and of course with the F800GSs we are on the look-out for bearing /undersized bore issues...
soooooo,send in what ya want,,,folks send in their stuff in every configuration,,,,BWOE,,some don't want to mess with a tire change ,, so they have us do everything they want to the wheel and have us mount n balance the tires of their choice,,,,,ie: total turn key set-up,,,just unpack and install on their bikes...and on and on....
and we'll take care of you per your instructions
ps,,,if you wan ttires or a rim swap,,let us know ahead of time so we can save and/or order what ya need so it'll be here when your wheel arrives,,,saves alot of turn around time
Changed my tire this weekend and found this 'repair report' on the inside rim:
The numbers don't look spectacular, but I can tell you my wheel was majorly out of true in two directions: it's perfect now.
I have a rear wheel question for a 990 Adventure. I have a stock rear 4.25 wheel running a 150/70/18 Scorpion for on road and also a Woodys 3.5 wheel running a 140/80/18 Dunlop 908 for offroad. My only complaint about the 3.5 wheel with the 140 tire is that is noticably taller than my road setup, which leaves me reaching for the ground a lot more and also makes a noticable change in the overall gearing. I am planning on trying a K60 on my 3.5 rim next and these come in 150 or 140 width. I am wondering if the 150 would work ok on the 3.5 rim and be shorter overall, or if by pinching in the sidewalls more, it would actually make the tire taller. What is the best way to go here for the sake of my short legs and not having a big gearing difference when I swap between my wheel sets?
FYI if ya do the math you'll find that 80% of 140=112mm ie 112mm tall
versus 70% of 150= 105mm tall,,,,hence your tire is 7mm taller than the oem,,,
Rx= install your oem tire size,,it will give you your oem gearing too
another possibility is 130/80 which =80% of 130= 104mm pretty darn close to your oem tire
hope that helps
Looking at the wheels you hav built, i dont see the excel markings on the front rims....only the rear. Is there a reason? Also, i got a quote to build wheels with my stock hubs....can you give me anything off for the stock rims?
FYI,,,premanufactured rims from Excel all come with their logos silk-screened or painted on the side of the rims,,,,when we build wheels in sizes other than what excel puts on the market we have to start with blank/undrilled silver rims ,,then chemically strip the ols anodizing off and re anodize with the color you want,,,hence no label,,we do have some decals for them circa $15/2ea
Pssssst,,,,with a lil luck we may have a surprise for you shortly,,,,we ordered up a bunch of pre-anodized black rims from the factory..they'll come with logos,,they''ll cost more than the silver version but way less than the $75 ea for satin or $100 for polished/shiny black ones...not to mention saving a week or more for delivery/build time
that sounds like the ticket ....can you post here when those rims are available? I like the stickers and the savings!
10-4,,,,it'll be months from what i'm told,,,so if ya can wait that long ,,,tell me what sizes you want and i'll put ya on the list...
regarding your old rims,,,if they are the very recent ones i may give ya something for them],,all the earlier stuff is made of their 'butter alloy] which unfortunately no one but desperate souls would want,,'tis the souls that are selling/trading in their bikes that opt for aquick repair and or replacement,,,
i've heard on several occasions in recent time that a few dealerships won't let you trade in bikes with non-oem wheels ,,,and others perceive one of my Superlaced wheel sets as a value added modification/up-grade...
it's just ''LIFE'' sorting itself out
