Thanks
Still,,same price,,,that's with the wheel disassembled unfortunately...tubeless X-lace wheel /rim R&R / relace and true usually runs circa $180 if you are lucky and up to $230 if the spokes/nipples are all frozen up. You could totally dismantle and clean the components squeaky clean ..then i'll only charge $150 for a x-lace n true....a good investment because we do what it takes to keep your true stay true much longer....have done hundreds with no come-backs

holler when you are ready.

OBTW,,,don't know what year GSA ya have recent ones sport the nice black anodizing,,earlier ones have the problematic fading purple...for $75ea we can strip an dre-anodize most any color,,,FYI: silver/clear and satin black are the most durable color wise.

GSA double disc front to single disc HP2 conversion

I will call Rochelle and send the wheel to you, along with (2) HP2 sidestands for your adjustable length mod.

I find that your Superlace wheels make such a difference in rigidity that I have given up running anything else on my GS, GSA and HP2's. What is the upcharge to Superlace this stock GSA 19" wheel?

You built a beautiful set of wheels for Warthog/Alan with a 320mm wave rotor on your Superlite hub. Got that rotor for the BMW hub?

HunSolo,,,,whenever ya take a wheel apart especially the X-laced wheels is when ya want to upgrade/re-anodize/Superlace etc...

so in your case building the strongest X-laced Superlaced will rub ya an extra $20 labor for re-drilling the rim to accept the beefier SS spokes...
the custom SS spoke with our trick SS nipple kit runs circa $250.....

From what Zach just told me...they are $30 more than the most recent BMW price adjustment of circa $230 for their ss skinnier spokes and powder-coated nipples. ...OBTW our SS nipples are longer so ya won't see any threads where the nipples meet the spokes...and they'll never rust/corrode like the OEM ones constantly do..Hence they are a great investment IMHO

thanks for the kudos,,,

hi scibeer,,,,
we've got the whole deal figured out,,,have enough components to build a dozen more....i believe there are perhaps 6 sets out there,,,have heard nothing but good things similar to most all the 21'' conversions we've done over the years for the GSs...

d you have any specific questions that i can help with??? perhaps ya need to try a pair out yourself????

holler

What are my best options for upgrading the stock spoked wheels on this bike? I want to ride it on street and dirt both, with lots of miles per year. Would prefer low maintenance and no tubes if possible for easier dealing with flat tires. Thanks!

Ktm 1190 adv

I just totaled my 2007 KTM 990 ADV down here in Mexico. Destroyed one of the front legs, but your wheel appears to be fine! You built it for me about five months ago.

I am looking at the new KTM 1190 Adventures and wondering, while I am aware of the advantages of the 21" wheel vs the 19" wheel in many circumstances. As supplied by KTM, which would take the biggest hit in a pot hole or speed bump without bent or damaged? The 19 on the Adventure of the 21 on the Adventure R? Thanks!

Hi Woody.

I have a 2014 KTM 350 EXC. I'm picking up a 640 Enduro cush hub to lace to a new KTM 18 inch rim. Do I just use the standard 640 spokes to lace it?

Thanks a million

Hi,

We would recommend lacing a 19 x 2.5 front and 17 x 3.5 or 4.25 Excel rim, with our superlace using heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples and seal for tubeless with your hub's. This would be the strongest setup you can get using your stock hub's and still being tubeless. Excel rim's are the strongest rim's we can use and with our superlace are a very bulletproof wheel.

If you sent your hub's it would be from $1,186- 1,226 + shipping for the two rim's, spoke kit's, superlace/true and sealing for tubeless.

If you would like to get these wheel's in order it's best to email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Thanks Zach

Hi,

Great to hear you are ok and the wheel at least survived, bummer about your bike.

If you are going off-road more the 21'' will always be stronger even with oem wheel's. The only issue is the the oem 21'' is a 2.15 wide rim and is still easier to bend than the 21 x 1.85 rim's. The other thing is keeping the tire pressure up on the wheel to avoid more issues.

Thanks Zach

Hi,

Unfortunately the oem KTM rim won't lace up with the stock 640 hub and spokes. It will require drilling/countersinking of the rim and new custom length spokes.

The oem KTM rim doesn't have the proper angles for the cush hub and the spokes are wrong all around. If you were to get the oem 2.5 x 18 640 hub and spokes it would lace right up.

We can supply a spoke kit for 128 and lace/true would be 111 + shipping.

Thanks Zach

For the most part, I will not be going off road. However there are millions of large pot holes and speed bumps down here in Mexico which is why I was asking which of the KTM 1190 Adventure stock wheels would be less likely to bend, the 19" or the 21"? Thanks!
