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.
SOoooo Woody and Chris! Send me an email when you get a chance regarding my existing order for the XCh wheels. I understand you have ordered a set of BMW hubs for me, I kinda like the idea of thr RAD hubs though!!?

Cheers

Steve

my time and your dime,,,we can accomplish miracles,,,even day-glo purple hubs,,,

have never seen yellow anodizing,,,gold perhaps,,,,

FYI,,these are 6061-T6 billet hubs,,,don't want to powdercoat them at 375F

oh boy,,,,those are all the goals i'm shooting for,,,,and the objects in question are for the bmw late model R1200GS series,,,

i have buildt trick stuff for lot's of folks over the past 34 years,,,,only in quantities does the cost go down,,,,otherwise the onesy and twosy stuff just gets expensive,,,

Thanks for the rims guys! They look trick and I happily mounted Pirrelli MT21's on the bike. I will post some pics when I am back in Sydney and have the wheels on the bike.

Cheers

3lbs lighter than your stock HP-2

FYI we are comparing apples and oranges ,,remember the oem wheel is a 2.50 x17'' and i'm giving you a 2.50x18'',,,,otherwise the new wheel would be even lighter with a 2.50x17'' Excel laced to it...!!!!

Can we see some updated pics of the different finishes on the hubs woody? The one picture posted does not show the two silver hubs very well.

i've tried several times now ,,but the pics do not translate what IS....

FYI,,both are clear anodized ,,,the one is anodized as is ,,,beautiful machining evident through-out,,,,the other we beadblasted and it of course has a satin finish,,,no machine marks,,,and when anodized has this stunning light grey look from factory cast racing components,,,,ya know the kind where they use super fine sand versus the coarse stuff.....

that's as close to a visualization i can give ya
