Spoked wheels, new fairings, exhaust, its all happening

Hi all, think I may have to start a thread for this one as its already on a couple.

Here goes;

I love the look of spoked wheels but didn't want the expense of a GS or KTM and the wee has such a good reputation, and it is cheap, and I owned one. So I started down the path of making the new wheels.

Through some research and luck we (my cousin and I) found that a triumph tiger 955 front wheel was the same diameter, disc to disc width, and disc diameter as the Dl front wheel.

After sourcing a wheel through his contacts we set about fitting it.
First we decided to used the existing speedo drive which required making adapters as shown in the attached pic. The spacers are made out of delron similar to what is used for crash nobs, so its heaps strong enough.

once the speedo drive was made we then needed spacers as the bearings are at different centres as the standard dl ones. The bearings were also changed to 20 ID as the spacers could then be manufactured to be captive, that is that they insert into the bearings to hold them in place to make fitment of the wheels easier.

Oh, forgot to mention, the front rim and hub were anodised/painted black and I used new front floating disks (www.metalgear.com.au).
