Is there not a easier way where you can just build me a front and rear tubelss rims on the Dakar hubs or something like that? there are no 21 1'6x21 rims available,,Sun has a2.15x21 with safety bead but that rim si too wide and a little softer than what we want

What will it cost and what does it involve to get a rim that's got the bead on them to be fitted on the Dakar hubs?
again can't make something if there's nothing

what we can do is build you tuffer wheels and a tubeles seal on rear

And same on the front?

If you make them tubeless seals on wheels are will they be tubeless or do I need to try and seal the spokes?

I just want to thank everybody at Woody's for helping me out so quickly. I bought a set of 19"/17" Woody's for my 950 from another inmate. As it turns out, the shims for a SE don't fit an Adventure.

I called Woody's and explained to Zach what was happening, he had me take some measurements and knew immediately what to do. My new shims and seals arrived today.

Thank you again,

Joe

Can it be fixed?

Hi Woody,

This GSXR wheel's center hub is not "parallel" with the outer rim (it wobbles left and right on the axle). The camera angle is a bit exaggerated to one side in order to show the hub.

And it has 3 or 4 areas where the outer rim scraped the pavement.

Can it be straightened and the outer rim areas built back up?

If repaired, would I need to buy new bearings? (ie are they subject to high heat during the repair process?).

I will be re-painting the wheel black, so no need to touch up what's left of the paint...unless you can media blast it for me.

Finally, can you give me a cost estimate?

Thanks much!

michnus..let me say it another way,,ther are NO 21 rims in th esize you need available with safety beads = woody NOT attempting to seal the rims/nipples == NO tubeless wheel on front

however i can seal your rear rim an dnipple if it has a safety bead which all excel /sun/did/behr rims have in your size

from the looks of it we should have no problem with your request ,,all the work you described circa $200-260

i'm almost positive that the rear wheel is too wide for your 690e,,the front of your 950 is double disc and your 690e may not have the correct axle spacers,,removing the extra disc and swapping spacers may get ya to swap the front ,,,

here's what we learned:

as of 1630 RMDST 4/13/10

none of the parts numbers interchange between you bike and the previous 640s and 950s...
most everything i said above holds true...we need a 2010 wheelset to get concrete data,,any volunteers out there.????,,,baring getting a 690e front/rear wheel assy replete with spacers,,,the jury is maybe on the front and nix on the rear

Thumb Weighty subject

Hi Woody
Happy Birthday!
Now on to business.
I'm now mounting and balancing my own tires and wonder if you have an opinion as to wheel weights. I got some of the adhesive 7 gram strips which I used on my F800 but saw that my Ural has spoke weights. Since it was a real pain getting the factory weights off the BMW I was wondering if the spoke weights were OK and if you had a recommended type or heaven forbid brand.

rear 3.5x17 excel,,can use oem 150x17 tires,,superlaced,won't bend as easy [narrower rim] can seal for tubeless add $99

circa $2k-2.2k
you'd want the ss spokes and ss nipples in that environmment



woody
and secondly if my good wife decides that the bike will get to a scrap yeard, is it possible to get parts shipped and i can get a wheel builder i know to assemble them for me (i know there be no warranty of course)

well now ya got me thinking.....

i like weights that are unobstrusive,,,easily movable yet stay in place,,,cost effective....non-marring

unfortunately there isn't a beasty like that

years ago in the 70's-90s most manufacturers that had mags had low profile weights with special contoured clips that snapped onto a special bead in the center of the mag,,BMW made their version that clipped on the outside flange of the rim= thumbs down for the visual impact

i like weights with good adhesive on them and are non-marring... bmw get's the nod in that department

FYI,,3M adhesive remover is your best ally in that department....it is amazing stuff at removing any left over rubberized product without affecting the finish

trick is applying directly and give yourself a minute or two to let it do it's thing,,so cock your wheel a few degrees with the weight at the bottom apply a few drops to the joint between the weight and rim...

next time you eat oriental/sushi keep your bamboo chopsticks,,,,whittle the flat end to a wedge and save for jamming it between your weight and rim,,add a few more drops and voila off comes the weight,,,

if there's any adhesive left,,add a few more drops and scrape off with the chop-stick or your finger nails..wipe off with clean rag...no trace of any weight left.....

FYI,,, we routinely get the 1/4 oz Tape a Weights lay em on and old newspaper and spray paint them the color of the rim,,they work IF used on a PERFECTLY CLEAN surface

'nuff on this subject

Hi Woody.

You've probably heard this question a million times, bit i'm gunna ask it anyways.

I have an '07 KTM 640 Adventure, now complete with the "50 Cent Coin" front Behr rim ( it;s an aussie term.....)

I'm thinking of getting my local KTM dealer to build me a new rim, but i want to source the parts.
So what i want to know is

Whats the best rim to buy?

Will a KTM OEM spoke set fit from hub to ne rim ( excel, or sun, or whatever)

and should i change size down to 1.6?

I use it offroad alot, but also does it's fair share of highway work, and touring.

And lastly, can you supply what i need to get wheel built, and at what cost?

and will it be the same bits needed for an 05 or an 06 or 07 640A

Thanks mate!
