Sounds great, I get to work on it. I already replaced the rear some time ago. 6" rear but 5-1/2" would work. I will be in touch. Thanks

yes n no..regarding making tubeless oem F650 wheels

to the rear if it has a safety bead on the rim,,most do these days

sorry the front rim i know does not come with a safety bead,,,we only seal rims that are designed for tubeless application and the safety bead is an essential component for that type of rim,,not to mention that the rims are built to more exacting standards and need to interface with tubeless tires,,,FYI,,the wheel/rim and tire manufacturers got together and agreed to certain standards that have been internationally accepted

takes three days to prep,seal and cure

DRAT! And here I thought I figured out a cost saving alternative to buying a new set of wheels.

Thanks for the info, Woody!

Thumb R90 Wheel Rejuvenation

Mike-

Below are a few photos of your restored R90 Wheels.

the very outer edges still have nicks in them because you gouged em so deep,,,so we smoothed the major stuff but didn't spend alot of extra time removing all the deep stuff...figuring you'll just put more in there again sometime soon,,,,we could remove em but then that's time n $$$$,,The rims have a little bling and our ball bearing kits have alotta function.

BTW,,,these conversion kits i've made will save you a ton of grief and money down the road,,,no more needing to pay $40+ for a bearing service...much less worry about 9''lbs of drag at the proper axle nut torque....the double sealed 6203 ball bearing are 1/5th the price of the oem tapereds....i created this solution because no other bikes but these BMWs with their bearing setup have i seen and repaired more seized bearings. their setup when done properly AND that includes every rider torquing the axle nuts to the EXACT oem specs....[and therein lies the flyin the ointment]..works great....and when you do not play by BMW's rules you will pay dearly

And if you have a couple of photos of what they used to look like, then please send them our way. Sorry for the finger prints, those won't be there when you receive them. Thanks for the opportunity.

Chris n Woody



here's what abead blasted and sealed hub with ball bearing kit looks like after we're thtough with it...you should've seen what they came in like!!


swapped the chintzy chrome spokes for 9g ss front and 8g ss rear..mo betta

you all know i'm driven by the mantra beat into me by Sister Mary of the Immaculate Conception..''good ,better,best,,,NEVER let it rest til the good is the better and the better is the BEST!!!!'',,,,i paid attention to her,,,yes indeed i did

Hi Woody!
I have a 640 Adventure that the PO rode hard and put away wet. Lots of corrosion on this bike. The back wheel looking particularly rough.



Only my poor photographic skills prevent showing just how bad it is. About a third of the spokes are badly rusted, and I would say half of the spoke nipples are pretty rough.
I can't afford a full wheel set for this bike at this time, but that is in the plans for the future.
My question is what in your opinion should I do in the mean time? Should I just replace the rusted spokes? And when I say rusty I mean specifically that the rust has penetrated the finish and is now attacking the metal underneath, in some places.
Thanks for your help!

we can do all of the above...and/or build you a custom spacer so you do not have to fiddle with it all the time...w

you would certainly benefit from a ss spoke AND ss nipple set circa $100
custom lace n true $80
good used rim$80-120,,0r
bead blast and clearcoat yours $40
bead blast and powdercoat yours $60

his rim looks like it has suffered lot's of sand rock chips in a salty /moist environment...the corrosion then starts were it has the anodizing compromised and will actually work its way under,,,,

in and out in a day or two

OK, I'll get the tire off and get the wheel boxed up and ship it to Denver. I think for now I'll go the low buck option
ss spoke and nipples
lace and true
bead blast and clearcoat my rim... unless you have a used, silver excel rim, stock size, 2.50 x 18 laying around

Hiya! I'm in the process of converting my XR650R to a supermotard rig but I would like a completely separate 17" wheelset so that I can go back and forth between dirt and street setups. What would you recommend? Have you/can you work out a cush drive setup for the rear? Can you include an odometer eliminator for the front? The typical setup is 3.5" front and 4.25" rear IIRC, and most people are using Excel rims with Talon hubs... Looking to order the end of this month/early next month... Ballpark pricing would be appreciated ;)

Thanks!

Robert
