Just noticed that I never updated here that I received my Woody's wheels some time back in the late summer/fall and I am very happy with the results. I opted for OEM hubs, but if I had to do it again, I may choose the billet option.

Either way, they give me great confidence and work well.

Ideally, I want some discs and rotors too so I can quickly swap my street and dirt setups. Those parts are expensive...still looking for a deal.

Buy with confidence.

Hey Woody!
I sent you a pm a while ago.....I'd like to get some info.....

The scenario is that I spend the weekdays with my stock wheels and Annakees (or any other ds tire), then on the weekend, I swap the OEM wheels out and put in the new wheels with some knobbies. Just a simple swap out.

I understand that you give two options:
50/50 (dirt/street)
and
100% (dirt)

I like the 50/50 option.
I guess I need new front and rear rotors. Will I have to get any ABS-related hardware? Will the ABS still work?
I'd like to keep the tire sizes the same. Also, I want both wheels to be tubeless. I understand that you use the nuetech tubliss system for the front 21" wheel. I have heard conflicting things on how good the tubliss system is. In that case, I will go tubes up front and tubeless in rear.
I don't know if it's worth going with a 19" up front. I happen to like the 21" wheel.

Does the 50/50 keep the stock width for the wheels?
Also, what are the color options?
I'm confused over all the choices and info....as you can see..
Thanks.

I understand that you give two options:
50/50 (dirt/street)we convert to 1.85x21 front rim and 3.5x17 rear can use stock/oem tire sizes
and
100% (dirt)we use 1.6x21 and 2.5x18 for hard core riding and a bit wider for easier stuff

then we also convert to 2.5x19 front with oem resr 4.25x17 for outrageousely fine mainly street touring application[can be sealed for tubeles too]

I like the 50/50 option.
I guess I need new front and rear rotors. we recommend galfer wavy/floating rotors sporting galfer green pads...work better for less $$$ Will I have to get any ABS-related hardware? if ya want ABS you'll need the ABS rings too!!!Will the ABS still work? only if the ABS rings are installed
I'd like to keep the tire sizes the same. Also, I want both wheels to be tubeless. I understand that you use the nuetech tubliss system for the front 21" wheel. I have heard conflicting things on how good the tubliss system is.tubliss ads state for off road use only In that case, I will go tubes up front and tubeless in rear.10-4,,,no problem
I don't know if it's worth going with a 19" up front. I happen to like the 21" wheel.like i said earlier ,,,if ya spend alotof time on the slab and keep the bike on fire roads and smoother trails you'll be fine

Does the 50/50 keep the stock width for the wheels?no,,,i gave specs above
Also, what are the color options?if ya go with billet hubs ,,we can get a variety of colors NC,,rims too,,but that adds another $75-100 per rim depending on satin or glossy finish
I'm confused over all the choices and info....as you can see..
Thanks.
hope that helps abit

woody

Wicked Monster Front Wheel

Woody,

What would it take to get this front wheel set-up?

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=13


Any chance that is just a fat tire spooned onto a normal sized rim? (I know that isn't a GS, I'm not even sure if it is a 21" rim.) Could a slightly wider rim be used with the stock hub, brake rotors, etc? I know the fender would have to go, and brake lines extended or re-rerouted.

Just been checking out Woody's Canyon Carver options for my F800GS and it seems Woody recommends down sizing from the 21" front to the 19" front.

Has anyone done this? What are the pro's and con's? How will this affect off road riding?

Thanks

I haven't read a report about a 19" wheel, but here is a good one for an 18" front wheel...

Thanks,

Ask woody about your BMW F800GS billet hubs/wheels

Woody,
I have a set of wheels your team built for me last September. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the rear wheel was clicking, so I put her up on the centre stand and concluded it was the hub, not the chain. After removing the wheel I discovered that the left side bearing was the source of the noise and it felt rough.
So I contacted your shop and Chris was very helpful. I now have a new set of bearings for the hub and sprocket carrier, and a new dust cover for the left side. Now with all these in hand and wanted to ask, how do I best to remove the old set and install the new bearings? It appears the hub has two bearings on one side, and one on the other with a free floating spacer in the middle, but Chris sent me four of the larger size bearings + the sprocket carrier bearing. Was one an extra perhaps?
I live in a city where I can probably take the wheel to a shop and have them do it for me, but I like to think that I could do this myself.
Is there a specific tool I should have? Should I heat the hub? Should I use a light oil / lube in the hub before re-inserting the bearing?
If you could address both removal and install I'd appreciate it.
I've realy enjoyed the new wheels, they held up much better in Death Valley this year. Way better than the butter soft BMW rims ever could have been.

Edit 1:
Found a great pair of videos to help.
Front wheel http://youtu.be/SF9f7wVjaR8
Rear wheel http://youtu.be/iYy2DRS4weQ
With help from the videos I managed to get the left side bearing out in a few minutes, and I'll work on the other side today.

Edit 2:
I now realize that there are 5 bearing cartridges in the rear wheel.
1 left side of hub (6304 RS)
2 right side of hub (6304 RS)
2 in the sprocket carrier (60/28 2RD)
Problem is Chris sent me 4x60/28 RS) and 1x6205 RD, oops!
They are all the same dia., but the 60/28 RS is narrower than the 6304 RS

Hi,

Give us a call at the shop and we'll go over detail's on removing/replacing easier, plus we'll get you the correct bearing's for the hub itself.

Thanks Zach
