    I combed through Woody's Wheel Works web site and a decent portion of Woody's thread here on ADVrider but I couldn't find any pictures of the work Woody has performed on F800GS rims.

    How about posting photos of the work any of you FF's have had Woody do for your F800GS?

    I'm most interested in the changes Woody did from the stock wheels:
    - new rims only
    - new rims and spokes
    - new rims, spokes, and hubs (this one is the one I'm most interested in seeing)
    and any other modifications I just don't know about yet.

    Good timing! I thought I felt a wobble on the front and noticed i tweaked the stock Play-doh rim. No insult to Play-doh intended.

    Woody's used my original hubs, but changed the spokes and bent rims. If I get a chance this weekend I will snap some shots and post them.

    FWIW, I was very happy with the overall experience......with Woody's, NOT that I bent both rims on a 5 day old bike!

    For more info, see the 'BEWARE: F800GS rims are junk' thread I started.

    I had him do my rear along with the bearing repair. I'll post some next week when I get it back. :evil

    Woody did this front rim and hub for me, great work. Excel A60 with superlace and Rad hub. Only had it a few days and yet to mount. I have a tubliss to try out with it.

    Nice rim! Are you putting that on the BMW? What rear size did you go with?

    Cheers

    Hey Woody,
    Those are for the F800GS, right? Do you have ABS? If so, show me some detail pics once you have them mounted up.

    Thanks.

    Yes on the 800gs. Will go with an 18in rear, haven't decided on the width yet. Went with the 1.6in width on the front as opposed to the 1.85in after consultation with Woody in regards to strength and stability at speed (already running a steering damper). I wanted a second set of stronger wheels for offroad and to use the stock wheels and dual purpose tyres for general running around.

    Forgot to mention the new wheel comes in at 4100 grams as pictured.
