R100/7 wheels

Thanks for writing. Do you have the spoked wheels or cast wheels?

In either case with dark red, recommend powdercoat as it will give you a thicker, darker red. In addition with the age of these wheels, it's difficult to anodize and have an even finish because it's all about getting the oil off the wheel and wheels polished evenly and to a high shine. Often this is not possible or too time consuming(costly), so we go with the powdercoat.

If powdercoating cast wheel, it's $125 per wheel + bearing removal, typically $10 per bearing.

If spoked wheel, it's typically $75 per rim + unlace, lace, & true(typically about $100-120 for this bike re-using stock spokes and nipples). Can also replace with Stainless spokes and nipples for $100 more.

Give us a holler if you're interested or if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Chris

wrx wheel

It is likely that you'll have to swap out the spokes as well, as SMPro typically uses Talon hubs and Talon hubs have different drill pattern and allow for different length spokes. May be able to save the nipples, to make it work, but this may not be worth it.

If it was just a straight swap, cost would be $108 to unlace, lace, and true. $88 if just lace and true.
Spokes and nipples would add anywhere from $85-125 depending on nipple type and gauge of spoke.

If we Superlaced, then the lace and true would be $111 and $125 for spokes and nipples.

Hope that helps and give a holler if you are interested.

Thanks,
Chris

PM if you need email, etc.

Thanks for the opportunity. Enjoy and let us know how it performs for you.

Sure is an improvement over what I sent you.

KLR 650 wheelset with orange rims

Would depend largely on the hub choice.

If all new wheelset in stock wheel sizes, cost would be about $1700 with stock hubs, $1600 with billet hubs in any color. The hubs are the most expensive part on these wheels, they are about $700 for stock or $600 for billet.

So, if we used your stock hubs, would save the money on the hubs.

Give us a ring or shoot us an email if you're interested or have any other questions.

Thanks,
Chris

Africa twin wheel rebuild.

Hi,

It would be best to send in your wheels together so we can get the proper off-set and spokes lengths, and also can see if necessary to improve the lacing for a stronger wheel.

To rebuild each wheel with black excel rim's, stainless spokes and nipples it would be around 450-550 for the front wheel, and around 450-650 for the rear, depending on what rim we use. We can also seal the rear for tubeless tires if you would like for an extra 99, can't do the 21'' wheels using our process though.

It only takes 2-3 days to get the wheels ready when we have the parts, but can take up to 2-3 weeks if we have to order parts.

Email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com if you have any more specific questions.

thanks zach

Woody, I have a Husky TE630 which comes with a 2.15 width rear rim. I have a new Heidenau 140 in the garage but the rim looks way small for that tire. Checking on the net, it looks like every tire I have used on my 250 and on the 630 calls for a wider rim, 2.5 minimum. Heidenau sez 2.75 minimum width for theirs. Should I change the rim size or just spoon on the tires like everyone else seems to do. It's a head scratcher for me.

What rim sizes are optimal for the 140 series???

[QUOTE=blaisew;19040503]Woody, I have a Husky TE630 which comes with a 2.15 width rear rim. I have a new Heidenau 140 in the garage but the rim looks way small for that tire. Checking on the net, it looks like every tire I have used on my 250 and on the 6

I just got finished writing abig explanation,,and my WI-Fi connection in Saigon got lost and zap there wentt all my handi work

FYI,,go to my website and there should be a tire/rim conversion chart..it'll help you big time

For bikes your size and bigger we usually run 2.5'' rims for dirt riding /competition and 3.5'' rims for 50/50 on road/off-road work. That being said, you can mount the 140/80 tire on the 2.15" rim. Just going to pull the sidewalls in more and wear out the center of the tread, when on the road.

Another factor ya have to consider is the aspect ratio of your tire,,,the lower aspect ratios beg for wider rims to keep the sidewalls straight..taller tires get by with narrower rims as you'll see in the chart

Hope that helps
Woody

Woody,

Thank you for sharing all your expertise. KTM wheel question for you.

Starting 2010, KTM's 690 SMC shipped with the tubeless 17" spoke Behr Saxess rims.

Do you have experience with or an opinion of these rims?

I know that you prefer Excel to the regular Behr rims, but for these tubeless 17" motard wheels, what do you think?

Also, have you seen/worked with the Alpina tubeless motard wheels and if so, do they warrant the cost?

Thank you!

Konnichwa Gen-san,,,,

Ok,,,i prefer Excel to others because beauty,,strength,,,cost= QUALITY

I ALWAYS opt for the best package for my customers....

So the Behr rims use an old TRIALS style tubeless system with a rubber rim strip in a special machined Behr rim...so far it looks like that system is working...

The Alpina style tubeless system relies on a precision drilled hole that allows the O-ring in the nipple to seal the wheel it is a well thought out system including the safety clips to keep the nipple from flying out and letting all the air out instantly,this clip is faitly fragile,, myversion usesaa little lock nut that jams the nipple from backing out,,,this system also requires the nipple be adjusted from inside the rim via a socket on the head of the nipple,,

The other system out there is the japanese sealing tape system,,,i like its simplicity,,,we hav a modified version of this technique,,,which takees the best of their stuff and our technigued to build an effective sealing system

Thanks Woody. When I get to having you do my wheels I will go up to 2.5 on the rear and a little more on the front too.
