oops sorry ,you're overseas and it's a little more difficult

So, you mean that the only way is to re-angle the rim holes, isn't it?,,, si,,, on your rim we would reangle spoke holes on one side and use x3 lace pattern


Bent to your specs! It means that not only re-angle the holes you need diferent spoke angles, true? si,,one side oem holes and oem spokes the other side longer x3 spokes

It means Buchanan does not solve the way I want, being it have a set of spokes that I can lace without changing holes and bends... si that's the problem,,x3 spokes come in to the rim at a steeper angle



Rather than send you the rim, I'll try to return the rim here. good idea,,,we can send you the right drilled rim,,,but you should be able to get that in europe ????,,it needs european lace pattern/indexing



The Excel rim I have is actually a 1.85x21 bueno,,,the optimal size,,,trade it for a rim drilled just like your original rim



I understood that one side should be two-cross and the other three-cross, at least with the set of Buchanan spokes. Is there a way to have it 3x both sides? si,,,,if the drill pattern is the same as te original and the spoke holes are drilled and countersunk for the x3 lace pattern

Excuse me if I put you no-sense questions... It would be for my weak knowledge of both lacing wheels and english language...
luis,,,if you have a problem,,,,we'll just send you the rim you want and the spokes you want,,,x3 is stronger,,,then you or a professional can lace it ,,no need to send your hub over here

hope this helps,,,woody

Woody!

Thank you very much. You're right, it's the better. I will try to return the rim to the local vendor.

Im leaving today for Morocco, with the stock front wheel (which means that I most probably need another stock front rim upon my return ) and two weeks ahead I will contact you.

Thanks again for your help!

Would you guys be able to work a set of CBR600 wheels to make some supermoto XRL wheels for me? What would be needed to do such a task? I see on Ebay (search under XR650L) there is a guy that is selling some old CBR wheels, that he machined some parts or something for....

2007 YZ 250 rear rim on F650 front?

Hi Woody,
I bought a 19" x 2.15 used excel rim on ebay for not much and was hoping to use it to convert my '97 F650 ST's 18" front wheel to 19" so I have more DS tire options available. The rim was from a 2007 YZ 250, I have it now and it looks as though the angles that the holes are drilled through the dimples are similar to what's on the existing wheel but the diameters are larger, something around 0.340" diameter. I was wondering if you'd be a source for nipples & spokes to make this work?
FWIW, stamped on the rim is J19 x 2.15 227 403.

---Thanks!

Woody -

Any experience using the Dunlop 607 front/Trailmax rear for a set of sticky street tires to be used on a set of 21"/18" wheels? Bike is a DRZ400 and I have a nice set of Excel hubs laced to Excel rims. Other option would be to relace with 17" hoops I guess but would prefer to minimize cost if decent rubber is available for 21/18 combo.

thanks -

i can help transform your wheels however i choose to refrain from being a tire recommender,,,tires are like women or guys,,,how they feel and respond is a rather subjective issue,,,and soooo much depends on how ya ride em

place this question in the thumper forum,,,you'll get a response,,,remember it's subjective!!!

Point taken and quite valid I might add as well. Sounds like sage advice from a seasoned businessman.

What are the costs involved with transforming this nice set of wheels into a bolt on 17" affair? As they have the proper spacers, carriers, etc, now, is it a matter of relacing 17" hoops? If so, what is the cost?

Mike

depending on bling/new/used/size rims /rim brand etc,,,,,, we can put a set together anywhere from $600-900 on your hubs,,,our preference is to start with your wheels complete,,,so we can get proper offset
