I have a BMW g650Xchallenge and am interested in the 17 inch supermoto wheels you make for this bike.

Hi Woody,

I am the second owner of a 4 month old set of 19/17 KTM 950 wheels, supersized and superlaced w/ SS spokes and nipples. The front wheel was sealed for tubeless while the rear was not. The front wheel is out of round and out of true and needs to be fixed.

What are my options here? Is there any warranty on these wheels? If I take the wheel to someone local, will they be stopped dead by the sealant? How difficult a job will it be to remove the sealant (the rear wheel isn't sealed and I'd rather have tubes at each end instead of a mis-matched set)? I'd rather take care of this locally as our short riding season here in Upstate NY is closing down fast and I don't want to miss any riding time. However, if these wheels are warrantied, I'd rather wait till the snow starts and just deal with it till then.

Please advise?

Thanks!!

~Chuck

chuck,,,i'm rather surprised about the 'out of round and out of true',,,mainly because under most normal and even racing use the spokes on my Superlaced wheels stay tight and maintain their true,,,..now bending rims from hitting rocks and major potholes is a different story

we'd have to see it ourselves,,,,fixing bent rims and re-truing will be done on your dime,,,if the spokes are loose,,, which has happened only once or twice in my 35 years,,i'll do that part under warranty,,,,if it's holding air than the odds of loose spokes are almost nil,,,once you turn the nipples their is a good chance that the seal may be compromised...

if you want to go with a tube ,,,then there is no need to remove the sealant ..it'll be the tuffest rim-band you ever had,,so just remove the 2 nuts holding the valve stem and carefully remove it,,,and install your tube as usual...

in scenarios like yours we usually get your wheel in and out the same day or next day,,so you could be without your bike for 7-10 days max.

hope that clarifies your concerns...

holler,,,woody

Yes it does, thanks Woody. I'd imagine it was a pothole hit as the wheels came from Brooklyn and they have wonderful roads there!

I'm gonna have a local look at it as soon as the rainy season hits - see if it can be trued up. I'm just concerned the sealant might cause problems for him, that's why I'm interested in removing it if possible.

Chuckracer,,
the sealant will not interfere with truing,,so please do not concern yourself with that,,the nipple will just twist under the sealant,sometimes just slipping under the seal and sometimes grabbing the seal and ripping it a bit,,hence there goes the tubeless capability...

chuck hole hits invariably bend the rims which cannot be cured by truing,,the rim should first be straightened then trued,,,we are one of the premier wheel straightening centers on the planet,,so we can straighten instead of needing new rims

Woody I picked up a set of spoke wheels from an 05 GS and need to install them on a 09 GSA. I understand the rear is just bolt on, but the front I think I need new rotors and ABS ring and all mounting hardware is this correct? Is that something I could get from you.

Thanks

here's what i do know ..the hubs are all the same and from 08-2006 onward they used a different ABS ring...also know they discontinued the old front disc brake kits that had that multi shim/washers mounting kit in favor of an integrated floating disc mount,,, i don't foresee any problem in adapting the late model sensor ring and rotors to your 06 wheel..

there was a run of some front hubs that had smaller disc mounting surfaces vs. the more common large disc mounting surfaces. Difference seen below. Both with the proper mounting hardware and ABS ring will work on all R12 GS's.

we have some of this stuff in stock

woody


Photo of what smaller disc mounting surface looks like on early version GS hubs



note bigger surface on late model GS series,,pictured here right side of the single disc HP-2 on the left and the double disc R1200GS & R1200GSA all 3 hubs are same casting..HP-2 has right flanges machined off..NOTE the little directional arrow cast into hub...that's because these hubs are indexed from the left side via the axle spacer with 35 mm seal and right side with 30mm seal for the axle.

Could you explain a little more about sealing the wheels to be able to use tubeless tires? I've got a BMW 650 X Challenge, looked at the TUBLISS system but they only make up to 2.15 for rear and as you know mine is 2.50.

Thanks

I know I have seen a guy around here who has mounted a set of Excel's on a Triumph Scrambler.
I just can't seem to nail it using the search feature.

I would like to lace up a set of Excel tubleless rims to my scrambler hubs.
What would I be looking price wise?

High Score,,,sorry Excel only makes standard style rims,,,,IF they have a safety bead we can usually seal them,,,,

we have redone and upgraded the triumph wheels with better more durable lace patterns and spokes,,,ie "Superlaced' them...and later sealed them....

holler,,
