mike ,,,a '95 R100GS,,now what is that??? i've heard of a R100G/S prdecessor to the R1100 GS,,which begat the R1150GS,,which sired the R1200GS,,,

if it's an R100G/S you can't use it,,besides those would be 1.85x21'' x laced wheels up front and 2.5x17 on the rear,,,the R1100GS wheel whould work with R1150 GS up to sept-02 after That they went to stamped ABS rings mounted under the brake disc,,,as opposed to the earlier cast rings which mounted on their own casting spots,,,so theoretically if you leave off the stamped ABS ring 1mm/..040'' your disc would be in the same spot...to confirm,,,measure between your 1150 discs and the discs on your 1100 and i bet they are the same...if that's so
and celebrate...everything else is interchangeable

Sorry about the typo it was an 1100GS not a 100......my bad.......Sounds great, I'll check the build date of the bike and move from there, appreciate the timely response!......

Dirt Rims on a KTM SM?

Woody,

Have you heard of anyone having any success putting 21" front, 18" rear spoked rims on a KTM 950SM?

someone did it before,,,,however i think from what i've read,,,that we could pull off a more elegant solution,,,possibly use my new superlite hub that i developed for the HP-2 crowd...it uses a KTM disc bolt patternmmmhalfway there and is 1/4'' wider per side than the stock 950 adv....intriquing

looks like this...

the rear is interchangeabl i believe

Talking

Got my Gear-Up pusher, hack and spare back from Woody today

During the course of the work we decided to punt the Rooskie steel rims in favor of Excel's, then decided instead of color-matching the OD green for the rims we'd see what a full camo job would look like (rims, spokes and hubs). I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

















These are the best I can do for now - had to go over to the storage joint and put 'em on by the light of my trusty USMC moonbeam, then park the Pig against the bulkhead in my crowded garage to install the freshly painted OD green hack windscreen. Tomorrow I gotta work on the brakes, and I'll take some pix of the pusher and whatnot.

Then I'm gonna go FLOG 'EM

Question rim recommendations for 950 adventure?

woody,

i bent up the soft stock rim on my 05.5 950 adventure recently and want to replace it with something stronger. saw pyndon posting HERE that the 1.60" excel A60 is the strongest 21 inch rim available for the LC8, but i'm thinking i might wanna go with the 1.85" width for better on-road performance.

is there any advantage of going with D.I.D. or Sun or Excel in the 1.85x21 size in terms of strength and resistance to dents and dings? are all available in anodized black?


thanks!

-eran

Pyndon was right that the A-60 appears to be the toughest rim out there,,,unfortunately it is has the wrong indexing for the 950 front hubs,,,

he lucked out because we had a protype 950 Adventure hub floating around that was mis-indexed....good news for him,cuz we were able to use it and superlace it...

the 1.60 size is best suited for super rigorous dirt riding,,,for all around strength and practical use on the highway and the fire roads,,,we've had the greatest success with the aftermarket double signature Excel 7000 series aluminum rims.... we custom drill them in a euro indexing and our x3 superlace pattern...no problems yet,,,,the one or two that have been through the mill had definitely been tacoed at warp speeds

KTM 950SE stock nipple wrench????

Woody

What size wrench do i need a 7mm or a 6.8 spoke wrench ??????? from pro motion???
I measured my nipples they are 6.87mm (yes i know .07mm = .003")
I have about a .06" potato chip going on 2 highs 2 low 90deg apart.
its on a 2nd wheel and was going to give it a shot, used to be pretty good with bicycle wheels.

Thanks
Michael

Thinking about doing the TAT over the summer on my 12 GS and would like some beefier rims. What sizes would you recommend?

I have a KLR600 front wheel that I would like to have resized from 21" to 19" using the original hub. I'd like to run a 100/90-19 tire. If you could give me some pricing options, I'd entertain a new rim and spokes but if the price could be kept down by using a used/reconditioned rim you might have that would work. Trying to do this bike on a budget. Feel free to PM me with details.

Woody's wheels Rate big!!!

Here is an unsolicited review for an outstanding company! These folks are a pleasure to work with. Every encounter with anyone who is speaking with the public has just plain been great!
They helped me with a custom wheel to use for my Baja trip with my son and I would not have been able to afford it at that time. The wheel was a vast improvement to my stock wheel. This was 21" front wheel for my 2004 GSA. If you need or want to talk about it PM it!
I wouldn't run anything else after having ridden 6000 on an off-road miles with it.
Their products are very nice and as good as I have seen. Remember you get what you pay for.
Chris and Woody are very straight shooters and I thank them publicly for all of their help.
I will be a return customer and have referred them several times already.
Top notch company and people!
Springer
