wider 18" rims for the X-Challenge

Actually, we can get you a rear 18" rim that you can use your stock spokes on. The widest available is 4.25". Price in silver is about $300, $75 more for black. The 3.50" front is about $240, $75 more for black. The new spoke and nipple kit is $116 with Stainless nipples, $95 with Zartan nipples, $15 less for single gauge spokes.

Would you need us to do the labor?

I would recommend checking into tire selections, according to what type of riding you want to do.

If you want to carve up the canyon and the occasional fire-road, then I recommend a 19/17 set-up.

If you want all the street tire choices imaginable, then I recommend a 17/17 set-up.

Let us know if you have any other questions and don't hesitate to contact us with any other questions.

Thanks,

Chris

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

here's the latest info on the sealed wheels,,,

VT et al,,,

congrats on scoring a set of Superlaced wheels,,,they should last you a long time,,,as far as the sealing issues go,,,the silicone technique that you probably have ,,,has been discontinued by us late last year,,,,we have a new technique that is not silicone based,,,

i have no way of knowing what is causing your problem without inspecting it,,,we do like to know what caused the problem in order to learn from the mistakes,,,needless to say of the several incidences {we are talking less than 2% per 100,},, the majority have been caused by errant tire irons, and/or high pressure washers aimed at the nipple rim interface,,,

our practice has been to repair them free of charge if it was caused by our work,,,for peace of mind you can always send it over for inspection and we'll determine the cause at no charge,,,then we can figure out a better solution,,,,

Thanks,
Woody

Wheels for KTM950SE

Hi just after a price for a set of wheels for a KTM950SE. I am after the same size as the standard wheels but using the double excel rim, stainless spokes and what ever hubs you recommend. I am not fussed on colours, either sblack or silver is fine. Also is it possible to get prices with and without discs and rear standard sprocket?? Also freight costs to Brisbane Australia. Thanks in advance.

You guys built me a set of spare wheels for my 950 a few years ago, they have stood up good so far.

I recently picked up an 04 625SXC with a non cush rear wheel. What would it cost me to have you guys convert it to a cush drive hub? Do you guys have any cush drive KTM wheels or hubs laying around there?

Woody,

Could you quote new wheels built around my Cagiva Gran Canyon hubs?

17/19" and Headshake?

Hey Woody-
Quick question for you...is there any truth to the rumor that the 17/19" wheel combo on the 950 causes high-speed headshake (I apologize if this has been covered earlier in this thread). I recently bought an 05.5 with your 17/19 set-up on it, and have heard a few rumors about headshake. As we have 4' of snow on the ground right now I haven't had a chance to ride the bike yet...

Thanks in advance for your response!

Jeff

to date i have heard of no one experiencing headshake 'cept for a spoof thread started by a disgruntled member about a year ago,,there is no modification that i know of that will transform your 950/990 than the 19/ 17 set-up,,,there must be at least 10 threads attesting to it,,,,

mind you it was intended for the same crowd like the beemer GS series,,70-80 % 0n the tarmac and the rest smooth fire roads,,,and i'm talking FLOGGING it on the tarmac and twisties,,,ya can't miss,,,tis the only wheelset i give a satisfaction full money back guarantee on.


i'd try it out before i got too concerned,,,where you will find headshake issues is on the 17-17 sumo set-up,,,those aren't rumors regarding headshake,,,,those are facts,,,so ,if you go to the 17/17 sumo set -up,,,hang on to your handlebars!!!!

woody

PS i hear team MAX-bMW may switch over to this combo over the 17 s they are running

Nice...thanks for the response! I love ADVRider for this very reason!

The 950 is my street bike...I have a 300EXC for riding the dirt. I've done my share of slogging a big bike through mud and rocks...and have learned my lesson the hard way. Say what you will, there's no beating a 250lb 2-stroke for riding in the woods.

Thanks again!

Jeff

Just got my BMW R80G/S rear wheel back from Woody's . Impressed with the work and the speed of turn around. Shipped it off March 5th, they had it on the 10th, and it was on its way back to me on the 13th. That included a phone call from the gentleman doing the actual work, just verifying that he understood exactly how much offset I was looking for.

This is with the "Superlace" SS spokes and nipples.

Thanks Chris.
