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

Cheers
So I dropped off my XCh at Woody's yesterday (more on that later) and today he left me a message that he had some exciting news.

I'll post when I know more but sounds like billet front hubs are a go and maybe rears as well...stay tuned.

Go Woody!

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
Chris,
Could we see some better pictures of the silver hubs showing their detail and the difference between the two finishes. Thanks.

Wheelsets/hubs for XCh

So I spoke with Woody again today and the options at this point (for the X Challenge) are:

1. use BMW OEM hubs and superlace to Excel rims
+ less expensive and no customization required
+ yields good strong wheelset
- no trick looking, lighter hubs

2. use RAD KTM hubs, use KTM rear rotor and sprocket set, use stock front rotor, add some Woody work and superlace to Excel rims
+ trick RAD hubs
+ yields good strong wheelset
- requires using KTM rear rotor and sprocket
- slightly more money since can't re-use BMW rear rotor/sprocket

3. wait until RAD or someone else is willing to make BMW XCh specific billet hubs...Woody is currently tied up with the HP2/R12GS custom hubs

I chose option #1 for my purposes...I don't care about bling. That said, Woody is great to work with and will build almost anything you come up with.

Woody or Chris: please correct me if I didn't capture the currently available options correctly

Thanks for the info! I'll be going with option 1. Be sure to post pics of your Woody built wheels

Is it possible to use monster spokes for the X Challenge wheels?

Yeah, thanks. I haven't heard from Chris, but sounds like option #1 for me too.

I still have time so maybe things will change... Sometimes I wish I had forgone the ABS option

hey guys ,,,we only use the MONZTER spokes on x-laced oem tubeless wheel conversions,,,this is a super tuff/simple way of solving the probem imposed by BMW drilling the hubs for their nipples,,,,,

i can build you supertuff wheels using either the oem hubs or the aftermarket stuff,,,,

FYI,,,,this afternoon i figured out how to adapt KTM RAD hubs to work on your 650 X challenge,,,sweeeeet,,,can keep your ABS,,,,your OEM brakes,,,bolt on ,,,,slip in and voila,,BLING,,,BLING BLING,,,,plus STRRRREEEEENNNNGGGTTTTTHHHHHH.

I'll await the e-mail if this is the price quote, consider it a done deal.

Can I be first on my block...

i'm working on that,,,,for simplicities sake,,,the plain machined hub is highly shiny looking and when clear anodized,,the finish looks like the oem x-laced rims,,,,

the other version,,,,i bead blast first,,,and then clear anodize,,,,this results in a satin grey finish that looks akin to the finest sandcasting objects found on vintage machinery ....kinda of reminds me of all the race stuff that HRC put out for honda's race machnery....stunning in a very technically savy sort of way,,,
