Any word on the Husky?

Hey Woody,
Wondering if you guys got the 610 Hub in yet? Beemer Pat lives close to Denver and can bring in his bike to take measurements if you need...TIA

Thanks!

FYI,,,on occassion we have done atotal blackout for the harley crowd usually,,,and one beemerphile ,,,,it involves making sure the wheel is straight and true/ALL SPOKES EQUALLY TENSIONED,,,,W REMOVE FRONT BEARINGS ,,,MASK EVERYTHING OFF,,,,MEDIA BLAST THE WHOLE THING AND POWDERCOAT TO THE DESIRED SHEEN YOU WANT

this usually save s a bunch of money,,,advantage,,,TOTAL blackout,,,,dis-advantagei makes it extremely difficult to true the wheel again

TE610 Hub

Dan-
We have the Husky hubs available in billet, but not the cush drive billet as of now. It may be another few months before it comes out. I'll try and keep the community updated on the progress. If you're interested in the non-cush billets, give us a holler.

Thanks,
Chris

Woody's tubeless wheels

I recently picked up a very clean, used set of 19/17 wheels that were built by Woody's and sealed by them to be tubeless. The rear seems to be sealing properly, but the front has a slow leak. I'd like to ask those who have had the Woody's tubless conversion wheels; Do they generally work well? Should I send the front back to Woody's for re-sealing? Or should I give up the tubeless idea and just put tubes in these wheels?

Thanks,
VT

not sure who does woody's tubeless wheels, but i do know a guy in CA that does a lot of them.

call Wheel Works in LA. ask for gary. he'll talk to you about tubeless wheels. Just another option to look at "locally" before sending them back to Woody. but talk to both and see what you can figure out.

also if you want to check to see where it's leaking, you might try spraying some soapy water on the wheel when the tire is inflated, might give you an idea of where it's leaking. could be the bead of the tire isn't quite sealed.

Woody,

I tried doing a search but didn't get much. I'm interested in adding a set of SM 17's on my BMW X-Challenge. Is this something you can do?

thanks!

Wheels are on the way!

Chris & Woody,
Can't wait to see the new black 19/17 Excel tubeless wheels you built for my 2008 Kawasaki KLR650E8F. Michelin Anakee tires are on the way also. Next week, I'll post pictures here and send a few to you guys. I'm sure I'll have much more to say, once I see them.

The bike is getting an almost total rebuild. My new wheels will be the foundation for a great Adventure bike. Everything from the handlebars & grips to the license plate bracket is being changed.

Thanks again!

SamM

Hi Chris and Woody,

Does Excel make 18" rims in silver? If so, could my BMW xchallenge 18" rear rim (2.5" wide stock) be replaced by a 4.5" wide Excel rim using my stock hub and spokes? I'd also like a 3-3.5" front 18" inch rim/spokes to replace the stock 1.65" x 21" rim, again using my stock hub. I'd be using the bike for light back roads touring. If possible, a ball park cost estimate would be great.

Thanks

Hey Everyone,
I just received my new Excel tubeless wheels from the guys at Woody's Wheel Works. These wheels were built for my new 2008 Kawasaki KLR650E8F. My plan for the bike is to use it as a commuter/adventure touring bike. A friend of mine has a new '08 KLR and turned me onto it. As I posted before, the bike is undergoing a complete makeover. Everything is being changed. The new wheels are SWEET! Chris you did a great job. The new Michelin Anakee tires are on the way and everything will be mounted up this week. I went with the 110/80VR-19 front tire and the 150/70VR-17 rear tire. These wheels will make a great foundation on which to build off of. They basically did these for me in just a couple of weeks. I hestitated at first and slowed the process down a little, because I wasn't sure if the 4.25" rear wheel would work with the new '08 swingarm. It does! No clearance issues whatsoever.

Again, I want to thank Woody and Chris! Great job!

SamM

Thanks for the kind words. Look forward to hearing how they look on the bike and hearing how it transforms the KLR. Thanks for the business.

Chris
