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


Exactly the answer I needed. Looks like I'll be giving you a call to order some spokes soon.
Thanks!

Hi,

We can build a set of tube type wheel's using billet hub's, which the rear uses a KTM 990 ADV rear sprocket carrier and sprocket, excel 2.5 x 19, 17 x 3.5 silver excel rim's, superlaced with heavy duty stainless steel spokes/nipples. It would be $1,892 + shipping for a set including the KTM sprocket and hardware.

The hub's do re-use the oem rotor's and sensor ring's too.

IF you do want the wheel's sealed for tubeless tire's, it would only be an extra 198 for both wheel's to seal them up using our sealing process.

Email us if you would like to order anything or have any other questions.
woodyswheelworks@gmail.com
Thanks Zach

Im trying to solve a little dilemma here..... I ordered this rim (DID dirtstar dimpled 36H) part no. 21X185E6B01T. I'm finding numerous online stores that say this is direct swap rim for an '07 ktm 990. Well it's definitely not. 1 side laced up perfect with original spokes, the other.... not so much. The dimple holes in the rim are pointing in the wrong direction. What are my options? Can I just buy new spokes (18 stock oems for the x2, and 18 different spokes for the other side for the x3?) Essentially just 18 new spokes for the x3 side, but id rather just start with all fresh ones. Or am I missing something else here, like redrilling of the rim etc? I'd return the rim to the vendor, but since its sitting in my garage half laced up I doubt they would take it back.

Hi Woody, (If you are the outfit in Denver!)
I had a flat many years ago outside of Denver (Summer 2001 I think) riding a Red and black Honda Shadow ACE. I got a tow in to your wonderful shop, and after a tour you got me back on the road in no time for a minimal amount of cash on a Sunday nonetheless. I just want to say thank you! Thanks to your excellent work I was able to make it home on that tire, I couldn't afford a new one and you even offered me tent space to boot. I haven't forgotten you and my sticker is affixed to my airplane luggage to this day, I'd wish I had put it on my bike. So this summer I'll stop by and visit on my FJR to get one. You were working on a Moto idea for a veteran who had lost his legs in battle and you had told me all about your cool designs for Bill Clinton's cane and downhill skiing chairs (I'm a little fuzzy on the details.) I hope you're doing well. Many good thoughts and praises for your work. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. You guys rock!

Sun Ray

Hi Jon ,,,you're caught between a rock n a hard place.....we usually resolve your problem by adding an extra x on the disc side ie from OEM X2 to our Superlace X3 pattern....that also involves re-drilling/countersinking to compensate for the new angle on the one side.

Looks like you were planning on lacing n Truing your self,,,so I don't know if you can perform the corrective surgery?????

Call the shop ask for Zach,,,he'll get ya going...if we Superlace it for you it'll be $111 for labor and circa $60 for half a ss spoke kit. A lil less if we recycle your nipples. Or circa $125 for the new beefy ss n ss spokes n nipples...when done this way we warranty the Superlace for a year against coming apart...IMHO the best $$$ you can spend for your situation....

Low budget solution = sending in rim and we'll do all the prep work for $30 plus whatever the parts ya need plus return S&H .

Fret not,,,it's solvable,,blue-printing/your rim will aid in the spokes not loosening
Holler,
Woody

Thanks Woody! I think I will send you guys my rim to have it redrilled and countersunk then I'll purchase a set (36) of those heavy duty spokes and nipples to superlace it myself. Looks like your closed until the 2nd of January... no worries, you guys have a great New Years and we'll chat about sending my rim in on the 2nd. Take care, and happy holidays!

Just wanted to say thanks for the great service from Woodys. Zach took plenty of time with me on the phone to make sure I got everything I needed for my KTM cush project for my 350EXC.


The old 620 wheel-

[IMG][/IMG]


Cutting out the seized spokes-

[IMG][/IMG]


Cleaned up the hub and started lacing my first wheel-

Homemade truing stand worked like a charm-

Done!-

Laced right up and was almost perfectly true with very little tweaking!

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

holler

Hmm, specific questions. Sure, how do I get a set for half price?

I would like to try a set out so I'll give y'all a call or pm and discuss the options and pricing. Tried to destroy my stockers today, but no luck. It will be easier to get this past my better half if I actually NEED a new set. Will work on that tomorrow.

What have you figured out for the mudguard? Do you have a relocation setup like you do for the old 1200 or do you just run without it. I haven't seen any after market fork brace yet for the GSW like the ralle-moto.
