Woody - I'm interested in getting my 1150GS wheels anodized/hubs powdercoated like these. Please PM an estimate.

Thanks.

Question

Hi Woody,

Have you ever shipped wheels to the UK?

I'm looking to get a 21/18 off road (ie tough!) set and a 19/17 road set for a 950Adv, but I need to know how bad the shipping is going to be.

Thanks

circa $4-500 each ,,depending on what we can salvage /fix BWOE some of the 1150s had chrome spokes ,,hence that upgrade alone runs $100 + $$$$$$


thanks for asking

woody

Husky Cush Hubs

Y'all asked for it awhile ago, our preliminary number's must have been incorrect, because in the past day, Woody was able to adapt a cush drive hub to fit a Husky TE510 and 610. So, if you're interested, give us a holler:

HP-2 riders chime in!!! what tire sizes are you usingon back 2.50x18rim???
Woody, you built an 18" x 2.50 for my 12GS. I've run a 140/80-18 MT21, Maxis 6006 and 908RR (current tire). No problem with any of them size wise. The Maxis isn't strong enough for the weight of the bike IMO.

I haven't tried this whell on my HP2 so don't know if there are any clearance issues with the wheel / tire on that bike.

Cheers,

another lifetime WWW customer

Just wanted to share some pics of my Spring project:

http://hawkfan4life.com/AdventureHaw...turehawk1.html

Without Woody's help, my goal of putting wire wheels on this old HawkGT would never have happened ... many, many, many thanks to Woody himself for his motivation and excitement over the project. I like it when folks are interested in what they're doing, not just stamping out a product and cashing a check.

I'm always cautious when road-testing a new bike, so my trips these past couple days have been short, but the wheels are completely smooth, and gorgeous to look at. Thx Woody :)

Not sure where else to post this, the garage maybe?

Robb
happy dude

Cool2 Rally Raid and the 2.5 inch rear

Woody and Mav,

Mav, I have mounted the D908 Rally Raid on the 18" by 2.5" wide Excel wheel. Mounts just fine, double rim locks applied. I don't foresee any problems with clearance. Note: this tire is listed as 140, but I swear it will measure 150.

Woody, I didn't realize S. Kirsi was running 2.5" rims on the HP2. If that is the case, I'm not worried about mounting the 140s.

I will post updates after riding the D908 and later a Metzler 6 Day Extreme on the 18" rear wheel.

Ride on!

Very clean and sanitary build Robb! My first response is "can you lengthen the swing arm 2 inches, slap a 21 on the front and spoon on some knobbies?? "
Nice wheels too!

The wheels are feckin' gorgeous, absolute works of art, and they roll smooth as can be. Beefy, too.

No easy way to lengthen that cast swingarm, and I really don't intend to do much off-roading - I've had a couple of DR650's now, which I used strictly as street bikes, and that's the direction in which I wanted to take the HawkGT; comfortable riding position, room for me to stretch out.

We did go up from a stock 17" front rim to a 19", which I think is a great compromise; rear wheel stayed at 17". 21" on the front would've been overkill for my purposes.

If I were going to do any serious offroading, I'd have started with an SV, or some other expendable bike ;)

Wink HP2 18" Superlite, Rally Raid D908 mounted

pics of the 18" wheel, shod with new D908 RR rubber...










You can see the tire sits taller (about 1 inch when mounted). I immediately noticed the change in head angle. Took me about 5 minutes to get used to it, now feels normal. It quickens the steering a bit, and puts the rear end in the air. No clearance problems. Tire has almost 20mm clearance to the swing arm. Also, with twin rim locks, the tire mounts solid on the 2.5" rim. No sponginess or wiggle-wiggle.
I strongly recommend the wheel upgrade. If you are a dirt rider, you will wonder why you rode the 17" for so long.

* I had fender and body panels off the bike for painting.
** If you have sharp eyes, you see that the rear tire is mounted backwards on the rim! I switched it. No fun changing that thing!

Warthog,,,,thanks for the great pics of the D908 on the HP-2 Superlite rear

if you are getting the hang of the rear,,,do you think you can get the hang of 5 less pounds on the front,,,not to mention lofting the front end over obstacles, with less effort,,the advantages of unsprung weight,,,,better tire contact,,,acceleration and deceleration,,,and the concommitant joys of better handling

then there's the optical improvements of a matching blue hub,,,'twould add balance


OBTW,,,the tanatalyzing visuals are prettttttty sweeeeet
i thought to myself,,,,now THAT"S a sidestand i hadn't thought about.....




oh did i say thanks for all the great pics and feedback/report???

here's to ya Warthog,,,woody

PS,,,and did you know Kirsi's running 1.60x21 on the front???,,,FYI

Woody - say I was going to do something silly like race the 2008 Vegas to Reno on an Xchallenge, what do you recommend?

I would like to keep the price down (this adventure is already costing me a fortune!) but don't want to greatly jeapardize my chances of finishing. My thoughts are to lace a tough (Excel A60?) rim to the stock hub/spokes.

Should I be replacing the spokes too? Superlace?

Probably out of my reach but I also think I heard something about you making some custom hubs. This in the works?
