Harleys? I think you got out on the wrong floor...
No asthmatic tractors here!
Just arrived in the post
Got the shiny new wheels fitted. They sure look nice and I was lucky to find somewhere that had them in stock.
And, Emma Chissit?
looks good mate, love the black rims
Adventure bike Australia. They may have one or two sets left... and also some warp9 wheels.
$1595 (easy, the price is the same at every retailer).
Yeah, I like the black too. They would have gold hubs if they were in stock. BLING!
I have a question here about spoke tension.
The new front wheel was't too bad with just a few loose spokes.
The rear.... seemed to have a lot of loose spokes. i.e. most of them.
I tightened them up to 42 inch pounds.
Is that tension about right?
That's to true is it... i really want it to be!
NO IT"S JUST SOMEONE PLAYIN GAMES HAVE LOOK BOTTOM LEFT CORNER MIGFLIP.COM
Damn, I'd love that PR7 with big dealer parts backing!
Could have improved both brands positively for sure...
If Suzuki could come up with something similar at a good price they’d sell like hot cakes.
I had a look at the front wheel today and the seems to have been repaired (welded) at some stage. I might get a new rim from somewhere and have a go at lacing it up
The rim was welded at the factory. Why are you now worried about another weld??
Good point, how many welds is too many, maybe the factory weld came unstuck and somebody as corrected it. I haven't seen many welded rim repairs , so I was perturbed when I discovered this
Any advantage beyond increased durability?
That's about 4.7nm which should be enough. The excel rims I built have heavy duty spokes and nipples which I torqued to 5.4nm, as the torque wrench I used was preset at that.
Choice of wider ratios, definitely improved durability, we hope and expect, and improved change. If bored, follow the full story here; https://drriders.com/new-wide-ratio-gearbox-t18311.html
The peeps at JTR told me to torque them to what ever the suzuki DR650 is supposed to be torqued to.
In general they tighten them to 4nm.
I dug out the Clymer guide and is stated 2-4nm.
To be sure, i backed them all of a touch. Comparing the SM Pro spokes to stock.... there shouldn't be a problem!
Torquing the spokes on a DR?? Next they’ll have you running 98 and washing the bike occasionally!!
