A60 or not?

Hi Woody,

I have a KTM 990 Adventure S. I'm debating if I should get the 50/50 set up or go stronger with the A60 front and the 3.5x18 rear. I ride the bike as it was intended, just about everything. I'd like to eventually replace the stalk rims as well (many ring dings) for a second set for more highway riding and commuting.

What are your (and other's) thoughts on this?

Thanks,

here's a few threads relating to the possibilities,,,

thought there was one on the 21'' off-road combos,,,couldn't find it

essentially if ya ride hard ya want the narrower rims 1.6x21 front and 2.5x18 whereas more easy riding the 1.85x21 and 3.5x18 combo works [that's the 50-50 set-up]

holler or call Zach at th eshop for more details

Thanks Woody,

That helps, but the 19/17 will have to wait.

I've been exchanging emails with Zack, he has been a great help.

It looks like the 50/50 would be the best set up since, in reality, we spend about half the time on highway just to get to the good stuff.

Hi Woody, I’m looking into a rear disc conversion for my ’89 R100GS.

I believe you’ve previously built a wheel for another member here in NZ (PhreakyPhil on this forum) to do the same.

Do you still have the specs you built his wheel to and would you be prepared to do another? As far as I understand this involves lacing an R100GS 17” rear to an 1100GS hub, with enough offset to clear the new brake components.

Cheers,

Igor

the beauty of this set up is that ya minimize the odds of bending your rims by having them a bit narrower not to mention building em with stronger components as well as utilizing the benefits of the Superlace techniques...
this results in better off road grip when cornering while hardly noticeable changes in on road handling,,,,the best of all worlds

Thanks Woody - just emailed him. No rear drive swap as such with this one, but it is modified with a K series backing plate.

XR spokes on transalp

I cant find a spoke set for the transalp just buying them single from honda. I was wondering if an XR spoke set would work on the transalp front rim. wheel is the same 21" size. I got all my spokes broke loose but when i went to true it up i noticed some bent spokes.. when i took them loose it turns out someone has put spokes with the wrong bend in the wrong holes and the spokes are not actually bent. So any advice would be appriciated.

Have you done wire wheels for the Wee Strom? Getting one for my fiance this summer and thought it might look pretty cool. I never got the wheels made for my Buell since I got an XR650L for about the same price whick will be for sale in about 6 weeks by the way.

lordy,,that'll be the crap-shoot of old time ,,unless the hub from suzuki rim matched your Xt hub identically ,,ie same width between the flanges ,,,same spoke hole diameter etc...

you could send all your stuff to us and we could see what could be salvaged,,we have a ton of A-1 used stuff over here to complete your project,,, circa $88 lace n true plus whatever is needed to make it all work

holler,
woody
