21 inch conversion ESA and pressure monitored 1200GS

Any experience with 21 inch conversion on ESA and tyre pressure monitored 1200GS?

A friend recently did the conversion on his non ESA GS- comparing it with my bike (ESA), there seems to be less space between wheel and shock as result of ?sensor/pressure valve on ESA system.

He has the tubeless option 21"- the well of the rim appears too narrow to allow the fitment of the Tyre Pressure Monitor (standard on my bike). Have you encountered this scenario? Could just ignore the flashing dash light but not ideal.

Thanx for any feedback.

R1200GS with 21'' wheel!!

We haven't heard any issues with it yet, I'm sure the mud can build up around there pretty easy though without a guard.

We can't get the sensor's in the 21'' rims because they are too narrow to fit in the drop center.

I am sure it doesn't mess with the computer's with them off, I have our abs ring removed on our 05 R1200GS with tubed 21/18 wheels and actually like it much better than not having it stop you off-road.

Thanks Zach

KTM Wheels interchangeable?

The front hub for the 2002 will not work on the 2007 they used a smaller inside bore and cant fit the 26 mm bearings in the hub.

The rear should fit no problem.

If these are aftermarket talon or Rad hubs you can change the spacers to make them work, but would need to know what hub they are.


thanks zach

FYI,,cush-drive hubs interchange with non cush drive hubs on all the single cylinder dirt bike series
Not all single cylinder wheels interchange, the 690 rear hubs are wider than the older LC4 and <530 bikes. But not wide enough to fit on the LC8....

You could also get a $25 adapter kit from KTM that allows you to fit a 20mm axle and wheel into your 26mm axle forks. It contains two split bushings and one wheel spacer.

Chao ong LukasM,,,fromSaigon,,,,

check with Zach,,,but i'm positive the hub wheel assy on the 690 is identical to all the others,,'cept it sports a wider spacer on one side,,we got snookered on that once before,,'tis a simple spacer swap,,Zach will remember better than i can these days

good call on the kit,,,my memory sez we found another solution,,,whatever,,,those early hubs were all replaced with beefier ones ,,not to mention the billets i designed and had RAD build me...

Hi Woody,

I haven't actually measured them myself but I am 99% sure that the 690 hubs are wider. Not that this necessarily proves anything, but they do have a different part number and Rally Raid Products even offers a specific kit with a disc spacer to get the width the same when using a (narrower) 640 hub wheel in the 690.


Billet aluminium Adaptor Kit to allow the use of older LC4 rear wheel in the KTM 690 Enduro.Uses KTM 690 Sprocket Carrier and rubbers.




I have both 640 and 690 cush hub wheels at home so I'll get some measurements to confirm tonight.

Cheers,
Lukas


PS: Have a good time in HCMC, I spent a few months there a few years ago after a diving accident, first stuck in the hospital and then grounded until I was cleared to fly. Fun times!

SXS03540400.

Don't forgot to get a cheap used 20mm axle with the wheels.

Question about Excel Rims

Has anyone had a set of Excel rims made up by Woody that had the over SS nipples and spokes?
