Cush hub options for the XR650R?

We can re-use your oem rim, which is a 32 hole D.I.D. and lace it to the RAD Cush hub using stainless steel spokes/nipples, it would be 788 + shipping, and include's the billet hub w/ sprocket carrier, superlaced with heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples. If you wanted an 18 x 2.15 excel black rim, it would be 998 + shipping for the full wheel.

If you would like to order anything, it's best to call us at 303-936-0232 or email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Thanks Zach

But if I get a black excel (looks killer imo) then I have to do the front too

The horror.

Wheel off-set

I am in the process of swapping forks from kawasaki's conventional 41mm forkt to KTM WP 4357 forks. But there is a slight problem. When I have installed a Kawasaki wheel in KTM forks, it all fitted like it was made to fit. And so I thought. After measuring the distance from each fork to the centre strip on the tyre I got 1mm off-set left-right.

Here is my question to you:

Can this 1mm of off-set cause any safety or handling issues?

Here is the picture:


Thanks for your help!

FYI,,,when the wheel isn't centered you wi ll notice that the bike wants to fall to one side easier and be harder to flip into a corner/turn in the other direction....is that dangerous???could be,,,the more off set the contact point is from thepivot- axisthe more difficult it will be to have balanced turning in either direction...

Rx #1 = centering the rim,,in your case moving the rim 1mm to the left when you sit on bike,,,any wheelsmith can re-center the rim,,,If your wheel is true and all your spokes are evenly tensioned,,and you have access to the proper spoke wrench,,you could safely do it yourself,i'd start by loosening every nipple 1/4 turn on the right side and follow it up by tightening every nipple 1/4 turn on the left,,,i bet that will put ya in the ball park
there are other ways BWOE maching the axle spacers,,,adding a shim on axle all far more complicated,

NOTE,,the above suugestion is based on the assumption that the rest of the components fit properly . ie that your disc is centered in the caliper when you tightened your axle bolt

good luck


woody
PS we charge $35-55 to re-true the wheel depending on how out of wack it is.....re-locating the off set is included

Thanks for the detailed information. I was getting all sorts of information on other forums, and was confused what effect will it actually have. I would like to send you my wheel, but unfortunately I am half way around the world from you. I don't have the guts to re-true the wheel, so I will draw some spacer's up and get them machined at work. I am still in the process of making a caliper bracket as kawasaki caliper doesnt fit KTM forks.

Thanks for your help!

If something is not ok with forks, twisted mostly, and wheel"s axle isn"t perpendicular to both forks rods, distance from the picture will differ.

IF you are wanting the 18'' for more off-road and are on the road quite a bit, the 21 x 1.85, 18 x 3.5 will be best with 90/90-21 and 140-150 x18 tire's. The key thing is keeping the tire pressure up to avoid any issues with rim's bending easier and to keep the tire's from wearing out quicker.

The 1.6 x 21 and 2.5 x 18 would be best if you want to have the strongest option for aggressive off-road riding and plan on using it more off-road than on-road.

We can use the anodized nipples with the heavy duty p/c stainless steel spokes, they aren't as strong as the stainless steel nipples and do loosen up easier than the stainless nipples we use.

If you would like to order anything, it's best to give us a call at 303-936-0232 or email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Thanks Zach

Hey Woody

When are you going to start lacing 9x0 hubs onto the new 1190 Adventure tubeless rims?

Rim cracks

Howdy Woody,
What causes cracks along the hole (on the rim) where the spokes come out? I'm puzzled by this. Thanks for any advice.

UPS just delivered these to my door. These are for my 2009 F800GS; a 21x1.85 for the front and 17x3.5 rear sealed for a tubeless tire.

Just gotta find some rubber for them now.

Wheel options for the new 1190!

We know what you meant by 9x0, which mean's the 950/990 hub's as they are the same hub front and rear, the only difference is the disc side spacer on the rear wheel that's different.

We haven't had the new 1190 wheel's in here to see what will interchange. If you are close or have a friend with a bike who would be willing to let us do some testing and R and D on their bike, which would only take a couple hour's we can figure out what will work best.

Thanks Zach
