Woody, I have a 2009 KTM 950 Super Enduro. I have the factory wheel set-up. Is it possible for you to build me a set of wheels using my factory rims,Rad orange hubs,orange nipples,black super laced spokes? This bike sees a lot of miles on road. Would it be recommended to use a cush drive hub?

Hi Woody,
I know you're the Wizard of lacing spokes, but I was wondering if you might have a cast rear wheel for a BMW R1200C or CL (Oilhead Cruiser), 15"x4". It will bolt right onto my K12RS rig and I believe It can be machined to properly mount a 15" car tire. Thanks for your time.

Ninja Spoked wheel's W/ KTM suspension

Can I/should I replace the 5" rear rim to the Cush drive? It seems you recommend 4.25". The rim does fit as I am running a sprocket spacer and I'd be running 95/5 tires on this setup as I have a full 18/21 dirt setup.

Or should I just sell the whole sumo setup and buy rims and spokes to relace to available hubs?

I'm guessing that the spokes are different on the Cush hub vs non Cush hub?

Thanks


Hi,

Yes selling these wheel's to cover cost's for the wheel's you want would be the best way to get more out of the wheel's you have, but would take longer.

We would take the old part's on trade in, but we would need to see them in order to give you an exact cost of trade in.

If you are riding with the 19/17 setup we would recommend the 19 x 2.5 front, and 17 x 4.25 rear for a better setup with tire's and the ability to run on dirt roads if you wanted to. Also the 5'' with a 160 tire won't give you a better ride compared to the 17 x 4.25 with a 150/70-17 tire.

The Cush drive hub's do require a different spoke set than the non-cush drive setup.

We can build you a set with billet hub's, rear cush, stainless steel spokes/nipples black excel 19 x 2.5, 17 x 4.25 rim's, it would be $1,989 + shipping for the set.

If you have more specific questions, it would be best to email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Thanks Zach

Tire choice's on the wider rim's.

I know Mitas makes two tubeless tires in the traditional 19/17 tire sizes. Don't know if those will work on the new wider rims of BMW and KTM.

Yes the 1190 and the R1200GSW have the same tire's, and front rim sizes, the 1190 has a 5 x 17, and the 1200 has a 4.5 x 17. We don't recommend any tire's smaller than the 120/70-19 on the front, and 160/70-17 on the rear on the BMW, and 170/60-17 on the rear of the KTM.

If you want to run the older 110/80-19, and 150/70-17 tire's, we can build a set of wheel's using 19 x 2.5 F, and 17 x 4.25 R.

If you have more specific questions, you can email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Freight to sweden and delivery time?

Hi,

We can build the strongest setup available using Excel A60 21 x 1.6, 18 x 2.15 rims, billet hub's, heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples. It would be $ 1,836 + $200 for USPS shipping, it would only take up to 2 week's max to get the wheel's ready to ship.

If you would like to order them, you can call in or email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

KTM 950 Super Enduro Wheel Options..

Hi,

Yes we would only use the Cush drive hub on the 950 bikes, the power is too great to use a non-cush drive hub.

It would be best to try and sell your oem wheel's for more money, and build another set using Excel rim's, billet hub's, black spokes and orange nipples. It would be $2,068 for a new set with black spokes/orange nipples with oem size black excel rim's. If we used your rim's it would be $1,546 + shipping for the hubs, spokes and lacing.

If you ride more on-road and not a lot off-road, we would recommend a 19/17 set for a better street ride. It would only be an extra $150 over the 21/18 set to have a set with black excel 19 x 2.5, 17 x 4.25 rims, billet hub's, black spokes/orange nipples and superlace/trued.

If you would like to order anything or have more specific questions, it's best to email us at woodyswheelworks@gmai.com or give us a call.

Thanks Zach

- how the spokes come out of the hub

- what size rim is being used (16, 17, 18...)
- the number of holes on the rim (28, 32, 36, 40, 60...)
- type of lace pattern used and number of cross's on the spokes(Euro or Jap, x2, x3, x4)
- who designed the lace pattern, KTM, Honda, Suzuki, Harley, etc.

and others.

Generally speaking the number of holes is a factor of four and thus the spokes are in clusters of four which should be evenly spaced from the next set of 4. The set of four are typically the inners & the outers from each side of the hub.

So, the spacing of the holes takes in these factors and thus you will see a variety of combinations.

If you reply with a photo or add one your to a post of the 2 wheels you described, can provide more specific answer to the difference between those 2 wheels.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi folks ,,Chris did a great job explaining most of it...

So from Saigon a few more tidbits:

1,,,different engineers solve the location of the dimples to accommodate the spokes not touching each other...hence move dimple location

2,,, straight spokes have to follow the path dictated by their origin in the hub ( or as in the case of all of BMWs X-laced tubeless wheels...which have no dimples...the angles of the spoke in lips of rim have to go to their specific destination to the nipples in the hub.) and the dimples are placed accordingly in the rim

3,,,when a rim is not centered on the hub for balanced lateral loads,,,some manufacturers resort to X-lacing. Ie taking spokes from one side of hub ,,then crossing over the centerline to obtain better triangulation/strength ,,,,

4,,, Harley Davidson narrow glide front wheels use all inner spokes to accommodate the spokes not hitting the brake caliper...to avoid the spokes binding they resorted to having all the inner-inner spokes cross over ala x-lace technique to solve their dilemna

Ok enough explaining,,,got to find fellow inmate VietHorse

I have a BMW R100GS front hub and would like to have an 21inch Excell tube rim laced to it, with a triple cross lace. SS spokes. 3-4 years ago you did one for me. The spokes were double butted (heavier at the ends). how much am I looking at plus shipping to Ky 42104.

how much to paint the hub also??

Also, which is best and why, dimpled rims or just drilled rims. I would prefer which ever is stronger.

Another one just like this-

Howdy.

I need two new spokes for a front wheel, and I cannot find out what size to order. Would you be able to find out? Is there a way to measure them and use that?

It's a 19" stock wheel on a 1995 Ducati Elefant. The spokes are stainless I believe.

Thank you

Hi Woody,
I really want to send my XC rear to you for tubeless conversion. I could have sworn I read somewhere that you did it for around $100, but this thread shows $338.

I guess I'm wondering if there are options with this, or if its $338 or nothin'. Also, what is, typically, shipping on a wheel from you to zip 02905? Just looking for the full cost to figure if its worth it to me.

Thanks
Jim

Here's the bottom line regarding sealing for tubeless...

FYI.....
1,,, yes we'll seal for tubeless if the rim has safety bead
2,,,tis best to true/tighten all spokes for optimal benefits before you seal
3,,, parts n labor with one year warranty = $99 plus S&H
4,,,S&H circa $30 off the top of my head
5,,,circa 3-4 day turn around normally
6,,, it's worth it....

Thanks for quick response!

I'll figure out when I can get the wheel out and get it to you. Oh, what is turn around on that? Of course, I waited until the first 50deg day we've had in 3mos to get on this. Riding a bike for the first time in awhile will do that

Woody,
Wondering if you've had an 1190 wheel to peruse and see what you'd be able to do with it in regards to the Superlace as well as sealing for tubeless. Ill be getting a standard 1190 and know they are tubeless stock. Though only 2 of many bikes sold, read where guys had problems with the OEM seal around the center and could not get a good seal with tubeless.

I had a set of your sealed wheels on a GSA and no issues. Looking at staying stock, not riding more than moderate dirt within the standard capability but mostly street. Just thinking of a set-up that would leave no concern of damaging the OEM seal strip or TPMS.

Also read a few posts back where you could build a set of wheels with slightly narrower rim but looking to stay with OEM for now. But if I were, what would that involve? Use the 1190 hub and you bulid a wheel around it?

Thanks for any info.

Hi,

We can build a new wheel using your oem hub, superlaced with heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples to a 21 x 1.85 NON-Dimpled excel, with a silver rim and blasting/clear coating your oem hub would be $587 + shipping for the part's/labor.

We can only use NON-dimpled rim's on the 40 hole hub's, as we can only get 36 hole dimpled 21 x 1.85 rim's, and we also need to have the wheel X-laced in order to make it work with the caliper.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks Zach
