KTM doesn't give out any specs but it would suprise me if they were not the same 7000 series rims that DID normally sells under the Dirt Star brand, even in this OEM application.

Yes the Dirt Star DID rims are 7000 series aluminum. The 990 adv. and BMW F800GS BEHR rims are 6000 series rims.

The 950 SE, and 690 SMC use the same aluminum as the Regular Dirt Star rims, but the oem DID rims are 6000. I know the better ST-X rims are stronger 7000 series aluminum, but none are as strong as the Excel rims, especially the A60 rims.

I found this on my search

1999 Honda XL600V

Morning WWW!

Glad you started this thread, there's some great information on it!

I have a 1999 XL600V Honda Transalp. It was never sold in the US - thus a PITA to get parts and such for. I'm looking at new rims and possibly Hubs. Are you able to source those hubs? I live in Norway so mailing the wheels/ just the hubs isn't very economic.

Main difference between my Alp and the ones sold in the US is disc vs. drum brake.

I have a 17" rear & 21" front. Looking for all stainless steel (Lots of salt up here).

Thanks!

Great Customer Service from Woody's

Just wanted to do a quick shout out to Woody’s Wheel Works for the way they handled a service issue.

Just over a year ago Woody’s rebuilt the rear wheel of my Husky TE630, (they super-laced it with extra heavy duty spokes). Whilst on the road a month ago, I found I had broken a couple of spokes (what can I say, I must be very hard on rear wheels, I am starting to develop a ‘history’). I called Woody’s and asked if I could get some replacement spokes sent to a Bike shop in a town I would be arriving at in a couple days. Without hesitation, Woody’s sent me 6 spare spokes free of charge and covered the shipping.

That was great Customer Service and shows a company that stands behind what they do. Thanks for taking care of me as a customer. I’ll be back next time I have a need for wheel work.

Thanks S1

hi woody.

ive asked you about a front wheel for my KTM 640Adventure, yearsago,m but now, since the original rim looks like a 50cent coin, i think its time to upgrade!!

id like to skinny that up to something a bit more gooder for dirt stuff.

so, id like you to reccomend me and price:
a new black front rim

and also a orange annodised front hub
and delivery to australia.

if the hub is out of control. ill just stick with the original

id like to have a go at lacing one up for myself too.

cheers for your help

Hi,

Yes the oem BEHR rim's are 21 x 2.15 width, which is too wide for off-road riding and the aluminum is very soft to start.

We recommend a 21 x 1.85 for more 50/50 riding and a narrower 21 x 1.6 if you are 75% or more off-road and are aggressive off-road.

A 21 x 1.85 black excel rim, heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples and orange billet hub would be 738, if you wanted us to Superlace/true the wheel it would be 111 for the labor, which does come with a 1 yr. warranty (Bent rims void the warranty).

Shipping to australia would be around 100 for the parts or wheel using usps.

If you would like to order these, it's best to call us 303-936-0232 or email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

thanks zach

Bluhduh GS front tire storage flat

Hello,
I've tried the search function to look for info on this, but for some reason all I get is a blank second window. Anyway, the problem is this: before moving to Hawaii for two years, I parked my '95 GS 1100 in my sister's garage in Kansas. I left it on the side stand to minimize the space it took up, and to make it more difficult for them to accidentally knock it over. So, I'm back from Hawaii, charged the battery, and it started right up . Problem is the front tire will not hold air pressure. I put it on the center stand yesterday and pumped it up again, hoping that it being on the center stand would help equalize the pressure all around the bead as I pumped it up. Checked this morning and it has lost pressure again . I'm considering using a Fixa-Flat sealer or similar product, but thought I would ask an expert first. So, any recommendations before I use the sealant, and is there a better product than Fix-a-flat you would recommend? Any info greatly appreciated.

First off let's figure out where the tire is leaking,,,,i assume the tire is mounted /seated on the bead,,that it actually pumps up and then gradually loses air.

Rx = get some soapy water/windex and spray it around all the bead areas and sidewalls of tire and rim....
the usual culprtits are :
1,,weepage in the area where the rim is welded together[directly opposite the valve stem [assuming you have a X-laced wire wheel]

2,, weepage around the sealing area caused by your tire getting deformed and /or hardened while experiencing severe cold in the barn Rx = get a new tire.

3,,weepage through the tire carcass itself...Rx = get a new tire

4,,check around the valve stem and/or the shroeder valve..FYI some olderbikes have experienced corrosion under the valve stem and/or the anodizing surrounding the valve stem..Rx = replacing valve stem/thoroughly clean the corroded area// using JB Weld to fill in the lost metal...

FYI,,using Fix a Flat is fine for minor leaks ,,it is a stop gap measure to get ya to the nearest place to properly deal with the problem..it is highly corrosive on alloy rims and will ruin your rim if left in there more than a short period of time ie circa 3 months

hope that helps ,,let us know your findings/Rx

19/17 set up for a 690 enduro R

Hi,

What would you recommend for a 19/17 set up for a 690.

I want the bike for ADV touring, any views on the compromise between road and offroad performance with this change.

I need the bike lower as well and this change will also help with that.

I'd like an idea of cost and options for tubeless rims.

I am thinking about TKC 80 front and K60 rear, what widths would I need.

Any help/advice appreciated.

thanks dave.
