+1 I'll take a set for a GX.

Will the hub be a similar strength to the standard hub. Aluminium to me = bending. The original are cast aluminium right? But if you reduce the weight = less material = weaker.

New Pics of front HP2/R1200GS/GSA Billet hubs

All-

Below are a couple photos of the naked billet hubs for the front of any HP2, R1200GS, or R1200GSA. Full wheel photos and the finished product to come later this week.

soooo how does 2.06 lbs sound for what you see,,,,tomorrow the final version with additional weight saving touches will come off the lathe and mill ,,,little refinements here and there,,,

our committment was to cut the weight of the oem hubs in half ,,,,we are on our way,,,the original hub of 1200GS weighed in at 5.58 lbs with bearings n seals,,,let's see,,,,,

BTW chime in on the aesthetics,,,

and of course the HP-2 version will be even lighter ,,'cuz the right set of flanges will be gone!!!!

these hubs will use standard bmw seals,,2005 2Rs bearings,,,and take any KTM mounted brake rotor from 300/320mm+...the intention is to provide you all with the choice of rotors colors and rims,,,,we are leaning toward the floating Braking wavy rotor pictured below...it runs $299 versus circa $200 for the oem stuff...way lighter AND floats plus has great reviews on the braking ability,,,and last but not least it will slide right in and use your existing spacers/axles,,,am checking on ABS adaptability,,,for now we went on the assumption that the majority of serious dirt bike riders/racers do not utiliize the ABS function




on it's side:



here's the Braking 300mm floating rotor that Pyndon used on his Baja !000 pre-run bike,,now visualize that rotor on the hub pictured above,,,same bolt pattern,,,,


Enjoy and I'm sure Woody will chime in with a few tidbits later.(pssst,i just did,,,woody)

Chris

sounds like

"trick nipples with sealing o-rings and specially drilled rims to properly line up and mate "
You make it sound so dirty.
Great looking hub/wheels. I need to get mine done.

Woody!? Is the G650X front end the same as the HP2 front? If so you only really need to come up with a rear hub for the G650X... And since you will find more 650 riders out there, you might actually get a return on your valuable time investment when you lathe up for us mate!! C'mon Chris, you're the number man!!

Hey guys... Need a volunteer!? Woody says he may be interested in building some alloy Billet hubs for the X-Challenge to superlace onto some sexy excel rims. However he needs a doner bike to measure up! http://www.advrider.com/forums/priva...m&pmid=2164656

Someone take two steps forward please.. Or everyone else take two steps back! This is for the good of the GX community

Cheers

i've already been doing that since the bike came out,,,,1.60 x21 A-60 Excel will be your choice du jour,,,mo pricey but IMHO mo betta,,,

not only that,,,but my Superlace is one tuff concoction from the feedback,,,,7000,,miles across Baja including prerunning the baja 1000 course at warp speed,,,or doing last years paris dakar,,,without touching the spokes!!!!

Front Hub manufacturing Process & a sample of a new Front Wheel

Here's a little layout of how our new front billet hub was created.

ya start out with a great big chunk of billet 6061-T6,,,and start cutting it up like this.....




then it gets turned down in a rough profile on the CNC lathe.....


some more steps in the lathe....


not pictured are the first and second steps on the cnc mill...the first step is cutting the inner and outer shapes,,,then it gets flipped and mounted on a second fixture for the same process,,after that comes the drilling/countersinking on the angle plate pictured below.....


this is the final finished prototype,,,,,just before we laced it up and found out EVEYTHING CLEARS!!!,,,,with a little fine tuning we were able to shoot the narrow gap between the clunkiest /widest calipers i've run across.....





then we do a quick lace ntrue to check that everything clears,,,,AND IT DID!!!!


so off to the 4 decimmal point accurate machinists scale to find out that!!!!!.....
we are lighter than our expectations,,,you allwant me to add some more meat anywhere????

and these number's don't lie:



These wheels aren't only stronger, but shave over 5 pounds off of the stock set-up. Plus, they're pretty too.

Chris

PS,,,,,on the actual run ,,,all these holes will get a finish treatment with a ball cutter to debur all the edges....not to shabby,,,got it all figured out with just three practice hubs.....i love working with mike berry and making this stuff for you all,,,,he builds all our trick parts for whatever it is i can conjure up,,,,kudos to him and his gang at MB Precision Machining,,the last thing we just did today was make the HP-2 single disc hub whoich will be EVEN LIGHTER yet,,,,pics will follow,,,,

Color Choices for new Billet Hubs...chime in with your favorite

Here's a little sample of the current color choices for our new Billet hubs for the HP2, R1200GS, and R1200GSAs. Let us know, which one you like best.AND PLEASE pass the word to your fellow GS/HP-2 crowd....there's one more color that intriques me and that is anthracite/gunmetal grey,,,similar to the color of the latest nipples on the bmw x-laced wheels

FYI,,,the picture does'nt do justice to the two silver hubs in rear ,,one looks silver just like your standard silver rims,,the other is a clear anodized hub that was bead blasted prior t the treatment,,,and it is stunning,,looks like factory magnesium casting.....





Will have some picture's on the bike and with rims in the next week or so.

Chris
