trueing by ear

Woody,

I use my stock wheels for road tours... and I noticed some very loose spokes on the OE front when I was switching back to my Woody Superlites this weekend.

After tightening the 2 spokes that were rattling around...I was "pinging" the other spokes with a small screwdriver, listening to the sound. I went around the wheel a few times, tightening 4 or 5 spokes, and loosening one spoke that sounded way too tight.

I haven't had a chance to put it on a trueing stand, or the wheel balancer at the garage (just to spin it up and eyeball the rim). I'm curious to see if I made it better ... or worse.

Anyway. My Superlites are holding up. Front is a bit out of true, but I think it's still round. Its all relative anyway....at 80km/h on potholes or washboard, it doesn't matter if your front wheel is out 3mm. :-)

Also, the hub anodization is holding up very well. I have other anodized parts that are sun-bleached after 6 months (can you say Wunderlich Vario Levers....oops, did I say that?). Not the hubs. Tough stuff, Dude!

Keep up the good work.

Question drill 'em out!!

one more thing

Have you ever tried drilling out the unnecessary mass on a GS hub to lighten it and make it look better? Is all that aluminum mass really necessary in the hub, between the raised web ridges? (Do you know which part I'm talkin' 'bout here?)

Just thought I'd ask. I was thinking about drilling mine out...but I haven't. I don't want to ruin them.

Woody,

I ran off track last year at Willow Springs and put a dent in my RC51's rear wheel. The center of the dent now has a crack. Do you do that kind of repair?

rim identifying

The first three are manufacturer identifiers and the middle tells you that it's a 2.50"x18" rim. The last three I believe are for DOT.

It's most likely a jap drilled rim and depending on the number of holes(32 or 36 most likely) would be used for a rear dirtbike hub.

Hope that helps.

We removed as much as we thought we could without sacrificing strength. We tried one by removing the center and it did not look as good as you would think.

Glad you're enjoying the wheels.

straighten, weld, etc.

We can straighten, weld, and machine. Cost depends on how bad the bend is. We would leave some meat on the visible portion of the wheel because it makes it stronger. As long as you don't mind the look, then send it in. We will blend any minor paint as part of the cost.

Straightening is anywhere from $80-180, welding and machining is usually $60. So anywhere from $140-240 total.

Feel free to e-mail or call us with any further questions: woodyswheelworks@gmail.com

Thanks,

Bent my front rim - XR650R

Hello Woody:

Well it finally happened....hit a good sized rock with my front tire...came home to see my rim dented...2005 XR650R stock D.I.D 1.6x21 rim. What approach should I take (bend back, straighten, etc)? If I take a pic of the dent so that you could judge the severity, then can you say to send it in to fix or just buy a new rim? Thanks.

Wheel / Spoke question on a BWM Dakar

I have a 2002 F650 Dakar I just picked up, one of the previous owners swapped a 19" wheel up front. everything else is Dakar...

I have been wondering first if I will gain anything by swapping back to a 21 inch wheel.

and second how is the budget way to do it.. The wheel is 36 spokes like a Yama YZ250 so I figure that might be one available used option. What would be a solution for the spokes..

ZThanks for any info

kelly
