Tire's on a 1.6 x21 rim.

The 90/90 and 80/100-21 tires are the right tires for the 1.6 x21 rim. It's best with off-road riding with the narrower rim. It still works great on-road too.

thanks zach

traction control = no effect

ABS = no effect

Tire Pressure Monitor=

a,,no effect if i lace up OEM tubeless X-laced rims to it

or

b,, if i use aftermarket rims with standard spoke nipples the front rim cannot be made tubeless hence TPM won't work FYI we can make rear tubeleless,,it sports a safety bead.....

hope that answers/clarifies

Black rims for 2007 Triumph Scrambler

Hey woody, i just discovered this forum via your website and thought i'd try my luck here for little help.

I would like to convert my stock wheels over to black aluminum rims.Was thinking about going with 18" front and back.. do you see any advantage to changing that from the stock 17"/19" setup? Considering aesthetics mostly and street handling, as this bike doesn't really ever see dirt.

Can you give me a rough idea of cost to lace up new rims to my hubs.

Thanks!

Hi Jon,,,

IMHO your OEM 19/17 set up is a generically well proven combo for most Adventure bikes that stay on the slab for most of their life,,.vintage canyon carvers/road racers appreciate the 18/18 combo usually using a slightly larger wider rim and bigger tire on the rear....

$$$$=
1,,, set of aloy rims circa$500
2,,, re-anodize black circa z$150 for both
3,,, heavy duty ss spokes n ss nipples are circa $125 per kit
4,,,custom lace n true is $99 per wheel,,Superlace n true is $111 per wheel with one year warranty
Holler with more. Questions


Woody

Hi Woody,

Got my new Front 1.85 x 21 excel with new RAD hub in the mail today and am total happy. What an awesome piece of kit.
Just have a question on the appearance change of the rim.
All through this thread I notice the black rims have the gold lettering on the side and mine has arrived blank?
I was really looking forward to some bling on my rim.
Have Excel stopped putting there name in bold on the side of the rim?

Anyway your work is outstanding.

Cheers

Sorry mate,,,,Excel doesn't produce black rims in that size
Hence,,we have to strip and re anodize black,,,,
On the other hand there may be some decal kits floating around the shop,,,I recall they are a bit pricey,,,will check for you though and let ya have em at cost plus ,,,,
FYI,,,the oem ones are silk-screened on there....
Glad ya like em and pass the word,,, we let our handiwork do that for us....

'G-day to you n all of my mates down under
Woody

Hi Woody,
I am trying to build a 19" front wheel for an older KTM set of forks and would like to buy some spokes to suit, from you if you can provide them?
This might be a standard spoke, but I can't figure it out.

The hub I have is a 36H, 17mm axle, KTM hub (for WP50 extreme forks) which I am pretty sure is in Jap spoke pattern (my 21" stock wheel for these forks with what looks like the same hub is Jap pattern- but I don't know how to tell if this bare hub is the same- assuming it is).

The rim is a "J 19X1.85" 36H Excel, Jap pattern- originally described as a rear rim suitable for a range of smaller Jap bikes.

Holes for the spokes by my closest measure
hub = 5.1mm
rim = 8.7mm (same size holes as a spare 'ktm' 21" excel Al7 rim I have)

Are you able to sell or recommend a set of spokes to lace this together? I would probably prefer stainless, but will take what I can get.
Shipping would be to Australia.

here are a couple of photos and extra info below.




This front wheel is actually for my R80G/S for the fork swap I have done on it- I've got a set of 18" rear 21" front wheels for knobbies, and this 19" front wheel will be for road-oriented dual purpose tyres and matched to a 18X2.15 rear wheel.

Thanks heaps,

R100 xlaced wheel

Is it possible to offset the standard R100R cross laced wheel so I can fit to an older bike(mono lever) The 17inch Rim touches the swing arm in the factory position.

G650XChallenge

Hi Woody,

I've browsed the thread and have seen a few posts on the G650X XChallenge but either I'm blind, dumb or both. So, what are my options for getting good rims on front and back, 21x1.6 and 18x2.15? Can I use the stock hubs or no? What's this going to cost?

BTW, I had you guys work on the rear wheel bearings on my F800GS, 6k mi and they still seem ok. I still have my fingers crossed. We'll see at >10k. Thanks!

Rick
