Woody,

The rear pivot bearing allen bolt on my 93 GSPS really did a number on my spokes when it came loose and backed out, striking all of the spokes.


That notch is about 1/16 in deep.

How much what are we looking at (ballpark) to have the rim re-laced?

I also have a spare rear wheel that has 1 bent spoke but appears to be OK otherwise (although from reading the thread it seems that is not likely). Can just the one spoke on that spare rim be replaced? I live in denver so i could just drop it by your shop.

That allen bolt really did a number on the pivot bearing it was supposed to be holding in place. When I pulled the swingarm I found that my driveshaft is about 15 deg out of phase too. This has become very expensive and I'd like to keep the costs under control. At some point I want to have beefier spokes installed on my rims but the costs are rising faster than my paycheck can keep up, so if possible I'd like to just replace that single spoke for now.

TIA,
Homer

Great Job!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Woody did a great job on my front rim after I bent almost every spoke on it. He only had my wheel for about a day and a half. Ups had it for 6 so it was just a few days over a week to get all fixed up. Thanks again!

Hi Woody. Mark in AK here.

I come from a sportbike background and appreciate lightweight wheels.

I don't weigh much, don't pound my gear or bike, and won't be hauling much of a load on my '07 KLR.

I know most ADVRiders are more concerned about durability but have you built up a pair of lightweight wheels for a KLR? If so, how much less did they weigh? And roughly what do you think the cost would be?

Thanks, Mark H.

Question

Hi Woody,
I've got an R12GS with cast wheels and I really like the look of black rims. Can you powdercoat my rims black?

Thanks,

How about set of wheels for Weestrom? How much would that cost? may be some more dirt worthy front wheel?
Would be nice to swap wheels back and forward. Easier than swapping tires all the time.

Could you relace an Africa Twin set of wheels with stronger spokes? Anodize them while you have them?

Would the turnaround time still only be a few days? I'm concerned it would take longer since this bike is not available here in the US?

LC 4 Billet Cush Drive Hubs

Below is the newest, greatest thing for your single and twin fourstrokes. Woody and Bob/RAD collaborated to give you all a better solution.

Introducing the first billet aluminum cush hub in the United States. Using a OEM LC4 sprocket carrier and rubber dampers, you can bolt this puppy to any rear KTM swing arm and drive away. The cush absorbs a lot of the pounding that a thumper dishes out,,,,,your regular dirtbike hubs can't take the beating and will eventually look like the damaged ones below.

You can pick one up for about $300 and change. The matching fronts are $250 a piece. The 950 versions and aftermarket billet sprocket carrier will be available soon.

These hubs could be had in a variety of colors,,,for now we are going to stock. silver ,black and orange for the KTM crowd,, this hub is already being adapted for the other major dirt bikes,,, these will be ready in the near future...

Another great feature we've incorporated into this hub is our universal application feature,,,so what's that????,,,in lieu of lightening holes on the disc side ,we drilled/indexed an extra set of spoke holes allowing you to lace this hub to ANY OEM or aftermarket rim regardless of lace pattern or rim hole indexing!!!!

Let us know what you think.

Chris

PS,,,this black SUPERLACED wheel is going to be used and run thru its paces by Chris Jones in the next Paris Dakar race,,,will keep ya posted!!

















What won't happen with a cush drive:
