you could adjust the rear sag to match the front at the expense of deceasing rear wheel travel hope this helped woody

Would this be the same for the SE?

And I know this is solid theory; but has anyone done it to see the actual riding impact?

I ask because a couple folks have gone 17/17 on the A and SE with professed good results; despite "advisements" against doing it for rake/trail/geometry reasons.

thanks,

Hi, I noodled the front rim on my 2007 DR650, so now I need to lace a new rim on the stock hub. One of the option I'm considering is the Excel WM-2 in 21 x 1.85, simply because it's stock sized and relatively cheap; any recommendation there? I'm also looking at using the stock spoke and nipple set ($50). Of course, better component without breaking the bank is always an option (grad student time vs. grad student budget ). What spoke, length, gauge should I go for, and nipple size, material etc?

I'm also curious, what range of spoke tension would be ideal?

essentially you'll have similar results....

what changes is your reference points,,,,since the SE is a much taller bike to start with,,,so your CG will be in a different location than the lower units,,,it may not flick as easy,,stuff like that...

later,,

OK, so what will it cost me to switch my 21/18 OEM wheels to your tubeless 19/17? Can you provide everything ready for the tire to be mounted? Will check with my local m/c tire shop for rubber.

the SUPERLITE hubs are only for 1200GS/ADV/HP-2 wheels,,sorry

there are no aftermarket hubs either,,,and FYI the oem hubs are pretty nice,light and strong,,,thus a good candidate for an extra strong wheel

a set of Superlaced wheels with excel rims and beefy ss spokes and nipples runs circa $700 +/- a liitle depending on color amd what kind of nipples zartan or ss,,add $307 each for front and rear oem bmw hubs.

Have you done a set of rims for the KTM 950sm? I think it would look great laced up. I'll call to get info if doable.

17/17 for X-Challenge or X-Country

A SuMo wheelset, like this one is about $1600, $1950, if you want the sprocket carrier and rubber absorber's to make it more interchangeable. If you want the rotors and sprocket, then it adds about $600.

If you're interested, send me an e-mail at: woodyswheelworks@gmail.com or give us a call at 303 936 0232.

Thanks,
Chris

19/17 spoked buell wheels?

After a few years of waiting for a better off road tire to appear for my Ulysses I have given up. I am almost ready to sell and go back to a true dual sport, though I do like long distance touring on this bike. Any way a 19" front and 17" rear in a spoked rim could be done for this bike? I am not sold on keeping the front rotor setup of Buell if that helps. I know this is a longshot...but, let me know your thoughts.
