Spokes for Ducati

Thank you

Hi,

The easiest way to get the spec's would be to take an old spoke out and measure the overall lenght underneath the spoke head to the end of the thread. Also measure the width of the spokes to ensure the gauge of the spokes. If you need nipples you will also want to measure the width of the nipple and the lenght as well.

We don't have this wheel spec in stock, but can figure out if you can give us a call to order some spokes.

Thanks Zach

KTM 1190 Wheel Options

Though only 2 of many bikes sold, read where guys had problems with the OEM seal around the center and could not get a good seal with tubeless.

I had a set of your sealed wheels on a GSA and no issues. Looking at staying stock, not riding more than moderate dirt within the standard capability but mostly street. Just thinking of a set-up that would leave no concern of damaging the OEM seal strip or TPMS.

Also read a few posts back where you could build a set of wheels with slightly narrower rim but looking to stay with OEM for now. But if I were, what would that involve? Use the 1190 hub and you bulid a wheel around it?

Thanks for any info.

Hi,

We can superlace the oem wheel's and use our sealing technique to have a tubeless wheel with the oem rim/hub. If you want a stronger rim we can use 19 x 2.5, 17x 4.25 excel rim's for more dual sport riding and more tire selections' as well. It would be around $1,000-1200 for part's/labor, depending on what we used.

We have also heard of the 21/18 wheel's having issues with the oem seal, but in our opinion any more aggressive off-road should be used with tube's especially if you drop the tire pressure.

We can superlace the oem wheel's and re-use the oem seal's and TPMS but it's recommended to buy a new seal from KTM to ensure it will work.

Thanks Zach

Spokes showed up today. I finished lacing the wheel, and realized I didn't have a spoke wrench.. I cut a slot in the handle of my 17mm axle wrench, and it works perfect.

I've never trued a wheel before, but it went well, and the tire is mounted now. Sharpies and patience helped a bunch!

Thank you Woody's Wheel Works for everything.

I am in need of new front rim for my F800GS, the butter Behrs are definitely not up to the task of off road riding. I don't intend to stop riding off the beaten path, so I would like to upgrade the rim...front only for now till I can get more $$$

So my question is this...in your experience, who makes the stronger rim? Excel or Sun?

Woody - A friend swears by Simple Green for getting winter crud off her rims, but I heard somewhere it had some nasty side effects. Did I read that here? If so, what was the issue?

TIA, Pete

Woody,

I've got a set of tubeless Excel wheels running tubeless tires, but the bike came from the factory with tubes.



This is the front. It has what looks like a protector / seal in the rim. I'm guessing it's just for protecting the tube though & not sealing the wheel. It's kind of a hard material, not rubber. I don't think it'll come off without cutting.



I was expecting these to be tubeless until I did the first tire change. Can I expect these to actually be air-tight? Or to need to cut off the protector ring in there and seal like you and/or one of the multiple threads here show?

thx

Simple Green to use or not to use on your anodized rims????

hi pete et al,,
Simple Green does work great for removing all kinds of stuff,,,AND perhaps works too good ,,because it also will affect the surface and often leaves it looking stained /smudged/discolored/streaks etc...it affects some anodized surfaces worse than others...

a product called SS100 is far more benevolent.

looking at the rim itself it sports the safety bead ,,,hence capable of tubeless tire use....now the protector ring could have the dimples sealed underneath,,,i can see the nipples are not the Alpina tubeless nipples...and the rim band does look like a standard tube type rim-band...

sooo was there a tube in the tire when you dismantled it???

and yes,,you can seal for tubeless using any of the techniques discussed in the forums ,,,

we do it all for $99ea parts n labor,,,one year warranty.....

OBTW...the 21014 KTMs come tubeles from what i hear ,,,sporting a special rubber sealant strip....ala the ones used on their rear super motard set-ups...the rim has aspecial groove machiined that allows the precision rubber sealing strip to seal the spokes.

Thanks woody. Yes, the tubes were there from the factory & I'm thinking of going tubeless. I just wanted to verify what I had to start out with.

I'm thinking about the same thing for my DR350. Can you lace a wheel to my stock front hub? I plan to run the stock rear as is.

I'm not looking for super high performance supermoto, but I like the look and want the smaller front for when I go ride the twisties. Plus, I have an extra wheelset for my knobbies.......

Thanks
