I'm going to take the impact screwdriver home with me tonight and I think I'll get one of those pinpoint torches like you mentioned.
FYI,,,if it's as difficult as you describe,,,then alternate the tip of the inner blue flame right into the socket hole and then the tip of the overall flame in circular motions around the back sie of the hub where the threads and loctite are ,,we sometimes have 2 guys doing this ,,one keeps steady pressure on the bolt,,ie just on the verge of stripping....we know the idiocy of having too small socket heads,,,Harley sportsters with their little 3/16'' in pot metal disc mount screws gave us constant fits,,now these beemer disc bolts are doing the same thing,,,,at least we were able to learn from the past,,,,good luck

Woody- Seems the stock 2006 HD Dyna (Mid Glide 5.010") hub will fit the XR and has the twin discs up front and is ~$200 assume the same $$ for a rear.

What would the cost be for-

Tubeless wire wheels, black spokes, excel rims, HD hubs (you source the hubs-- I'm in Africa right now) and associated spacers, bearings (- brake discs and belt drive components) for a bolt and go?

Just wanted to send out kudos to Woody and his crew for their help. The previous owner of the bike was their customer, yet they have provided stellar service for me and have shown a remarkable attention to customer care and quality assurance.

I look forward to sending more business their way.

Thanks guys!

2 x cost of hubs circa$250=$500
2 x ss spoke kit $120=$240
2 x powdercoat spokes black @ $50= $100
2 x excel rims circa $225= $450
2 x seal for tubeless @ $99= $198
2 x custom lace n true @99= $198
spacers= $??
plus S&H

2007 R1200GS Front wheel before and after Woody's

Folks: I just thought I'd drop a note to the forum re: my experience with Woody's and the cross-spoke front wheel on my 2007 R1200GS which I have owned from new.

Before

I was using DynaBeads as the balancing medium.
With the DynaBeads in front, I was getting a significant vibration thru the handlebars, most noticeably in the 70-75 mph range.
Because of that I dismounted the tire, removed the DynaBeads, and rebalanced using a static balance technique and ¾ oz. of stick-on adhesive weight.
Now I get a pretty noticeable handlebar shake at around 40-45mph. It tends to be less noticeable above that, but I can still feel it.
I do not detect any issues with steering head bearings or wheel bearings.
I checked the front spokes for any that have obvious low tension. I tightened two that had a lower tone, but none that sounded “dead” I think.
There is a possibility that the tire is defective, or it could have worn in in a way that is now giving me this problem.
With the front wheel still installed, I attempted some rather crude measurements on rim runout.
Lateral runout: 1.75mm (beyond acceptable BMW spec I think per Woody's posts ?)
Radial runout: 0.50mm

After wheel was trued by Woody & crew

Woody trued my GS front wheel back in January 2011. I marked the tire and rotors before I sent the wheel to Woody's and put them back in the exact same place on the rim. Static balance was right on after truing.

I took the GS out last Saturday for a 40 mile ride..…marked improvement in the stability of the front with the trued front wheel. I was blaming the balance beads and my conti trail attack tire.

Before, I had a little shimmy in the bars that would start at 40-45 mph…that is gone. I took it on the Interstate and got the speed up in the 80-85 mph range. Held the grips with my thumb and index finger only on each grip. No shimmy at all.

I pulled in the clutch at 80 mph and coasted just to feel it without any engine vibration…dead smooth.

So I guess I would say that the front rim being out of true by 1.75mm was the source of my shimmy, because everything else is unchanged.

My bike has never been as smooth in the previous 18,000 miles I have ridden it. I’m certain that the front wheel is truer than when it left the factory in Berlin in 2007. I’m a happy guy.

thank you for sharing and re-confirming what i've been trying to let ya all in on,,THERE IS A DIFFERENCE in getting your wheel trued to the original wheel specs or less[ie:.5mm/.020''] that every wheel in BMW's history has been speced to....'cept your GS wheels for whatever reason have the loosest wobbliest specs i've ever run across[ie: 1.5mm/.060''],,,,

and i assert we have a team that can beat their machine

Cast bmw wheels

Dear Woody,

Do you have any sweet hook ups for cast wheels for my 2005 R1200GS. I have spokes now. I want to get cast wheels for the street and save the spokes for the dirt.

Eventually send the rear spoke wheel to you to true up.
Thanks,
wavy

Hey Woody,

Thank you for the fast turn-around on the front wheel rebuild, and for finding that black T in LG.

I've already showed off the T and had someone ask about your work. They received a glowing endorsement.

The wheel is beautiful.

Now to continue the testing program, .
