Hello Woody,

I have fixed my front wheel myself after it was bent and generally bad condition.
now it is balanced OK but its about 3 mm off center.
when I measure the distance from the two front shocks to the rim edge, the right side is 3 mm bigger then the left side.
I assume it should be right in the middle.

the question is if it is so bad? should I fix it or is it in the normal range of "OK" ?

Thank you.

FYI erdsh...

your wheel should be centered between the forks,,, to move the rim over,,,loosen the spokes on the one side and tighten em on the other till you end up where you need to be ...final runout in all directions shouldn't exceed .020''/.5mm in ny direction...for dirt bike bike only use you can double th erun-out without noticeable effects..

I just sent my rear wheel there, they called me as soon as they got the wheel and worked fast to get it back to my for a trip. They were awesome.

Tiger XC 21" Tubeless?

Hi Woody

What's your thoughts on either
a) Making the new Tiger XC Tubeless?
b) Making an F800GS Tubless?

Possible?
Costs?

Thanx
Paul

Hi Woody,

Just got my MTS 1200 S and within 300miles somehow managed to dent the right side of both front and rear wheels with one bump. I got two questions. I will eventually send these out to you to get them fixed. For now though, do you think it is ok to ride on these? They are holding pressure fine and unknowingly I have been riding the bike pretty hard for the past 100+ miles without any issues. Also, how much would you charge to get both of these straightened? Do you straighten the wheels with bearings in there or do you require that they are pulled off? I ask because if removed I would need new ones which would add another $100+ to the cost. Thanks in advance!

here's the same old mantra,,,we are willing to seal for tubeless any rim that has a safety bead,,on these bikes the front rims have no safety bead and are too soft anyway,,,,if your rim dents too easy,,then going tubeless is a total crapshoot.... we have done quite a few rears though both oem as wellas the stronger Excel replacements.

they look fairly uncomplicated,,,without seeing em i'd say circa $80-120ea should get ya within +/- .010''run-out again,,,and ya can leave the bearings in too.

Color question

Hey Woody;
I know that you have an option for different colors on rims, these I assume are "anodized". What about powder coating? Can your rims be powder coated without any harm done to the rim from the heat applied to them during the baking cycle of the coating process?

Also, I was reading somewhere about anodizing the spokes? Is this a possibility?

Inquiring minds want to know!

we have no problem powdercoating street machinery rims/mags...for offroad use/competition we always prefer anodizing...i've seen too many hi tensile alloy rims come in powdercoated,,,we lace em up and they are toast after a few riaces,,,oops,,i think the heat anneals the temper in the metal turning em to butter

the spokes we usually either polish em and /or powder-coat @ $60/set

holler

woody

a freebie definition from Wikipedia
Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment wherein a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as strength and hardness. It is a process that produces conditions by heating to above the recrystallization temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. Annealing is used to induce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stresses, refine the structure by making it homogeneous, and improve cold working properties.
In the cases of copper, steel, silver, and brass, this process is performed by substantially heating the material (generally until glowing) for a while and allowing it to cool. Unlike ferrous metals—which must be cooled slowly to anneal—copper, silver[1] and brass can be cooled slowly in air or quickly by quenching in water. In this fashion the metal is softened and prepared for further work such as shaping, stamping, or forming.


in my race engine building heyday i'd always re-cycle my expensive copper head gaskets by heating em til they glowed and tossing em into the toilet bowel:>),,,worked for me

I take it there is a replacement Excel rim for the front with safety bead available?

Thanx

sorreee,,nada,,squat...well,,that's not true,,,Sun has a 2.15x21 same as the oemm ,,it has a safety bead BUT is a 6000 series aluminum rim,,they bend rather easy in hard core dirt riding,,,bend the lip and Voila ya have an instant blow-out

hence we often downsize the rim to a2.5x19 which has the safety bead,,,,and allt heimproved road handling characteristics....

i'm looking into paying for my own die to sport beaded 1.85 rims

holler,
woody
