Wheels-F800gs

Hello, I've read through several threads and have to say your work is impressive. I'm interested in getting a cost for a set of wheels for my F800gs. I'm a 70/30 rider, 70 on 30 off. I'd like to keep things stock....hubs, size etc. However, I am open to suggestions. Thanks for your time. You can email me if that works best. f8gsjimmy@gmail.com

hi jimmy,,, a rough quote is circa $1700-1900 with billet hubs and depending on rim size/rim color//ss or zartan nipples ,,,recycling your hubs would save $circa $900

if you are a conservative off road rider you may get by with your stock set up,, all pre 2011 behr rims are essentially made of butter[they are the same rims that gave all the KTM 950/990 riders fits for years...i noticed at the this years rocky Mountain adventure rally that a new 2011 sported tougher Saxess rims for the first time... so someone is finally getting the message over there...
IMHO these rims are still too wide for riding fast in the dirt ,,we convert to 1.85 x21

now ya mentioned 70/30..if ya spend that much time on the slab you will be much happier running a 19 up front and ya can run the stock rear wheel,,this is an incredibly well handling set-up,,,everyone who has tried it is blown away by the improved road manners ,better braking l..etc etc
the posts are all over the place with happy chappies...

OBTW,,you'll have the largest selection of dual sport tires available,,FYI i bet 95 percent of all the dual sports sold run a!(/17 set-up

Got my front wheel last week and its great. Now if I hadn't poked a hole in the tube installing the tire I would have ridden it this weekend. Still new at spooning my own tires on!!!

17/19 combo in the dirt

So if i do 70/30 or even 60/40....i still want good dirt performance...is the 17/19 combo ok in th dirt and how wide is the front rim? I guess the big gs's use a 19" front so it cant be that bad...the bonus of this setup is that i could go tubeless with this combo.

My dirt mileage is way below my street mileage but i want good performance when i am in the dirt....

What do you guys think?

yes BUT,,,,,

you'll need to re-drill and countersink that rim for the narrower LC-4 hub[circa $30] as well as you'll need a different spoke kit to accommodate the different indexing between LC-4 and LC-8 hubs circa $105 -125 for beefy ss spokes and either zartan or ss nipples

holler when you are ready

OBTW if we Superlace n true it with one year warranty we could do the labor for $111 [we'll toss in the hole mod as langniappe for you ADV inmates]

glad ya asked,,because i'll have the spokes in within the week and will have the new super sano ss nipples in right after ...

there will be a 6-8 g version as well as a 6-.175g extra beefy version

will get pics shortly

FYI we finally got legitimate part numbers and $$ for the oem galvanized/zinc plated stuff that has been corroding prematurely

front oem 7-8g spoke kit = $77 PN # 23P-25104-00-00

rear oem 6-8g spoke kit = $94.89 PN # 23P-25304-00-00

Outstanding!

So, any idea on what the stab is going to be for the stainless spoke kits, and/or how much you will be charging for installation at your shop on a perfectly good set of stock wheels?

Thanks!

Dallara

the pros n cons of 19-17 on road and in the dirt[once again]

What do you guys think?
look here's a link with all that data:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=439443

although it's written for the KTMs it applies equally to your F800GS...

yes ,,it's a2.5x 19 sporting 110/80x19 rubber,,, so they are versatile work great on smoother fire roads ,,YES ,,i KNOW folks have taken em everywhere,,and if you REALLY want to smoke in the dirt a 21 unequivocally works better...IMHO

yes we can seal this combo for tubeless application $99 ea,,,then there may be the other albeit way more expensive conversion to genuine tubeless X-laced wheels using the Aprillia Caponord 19/17 rims circa$2800 a set
like these:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=284243&page=2

hope that clears things up a bit

holler

hi ,,this should be absolutely no problem,,, with the tire off...i'd estimate $120 +/- 20..trued to within .010'',,most likely you won't even know where it was straightened....we get $25 for tire R&R and balance
day or two turn around

done thousands in my 38 years

holler when you are ready

Hey Woody, quick question. Ive been emailing Zach about my R100GS BMW project, but here is a tangent.

Short story: Ill have the x-lace wheels rebuilt with hubs from different BMWs. Now my question is, if I keep the old (x-lace) hubs for another project, will I need to re-drill these to use them with conventionally laced wheels? Or do your spoke kits take care of this?
