It looks terrific. I too would say stay tubeless, then you could use a tube if you wanted: ala BMW.

I may get your way this spring, if so, I'll stop in with my liter strom.

Still, no spoked V-Strom wheels need the 650 rear and the 1100 front and rear

just got back from mexico,,,chris just informed me no one has stepped up to the pump to get a bike here for measuring,,,so all i currently have is partial info on the 650 19'' front wheel,,,if you know someone who's willing while it's still winter, have'em give us a call. We'll continue looking into it from our end.

kudos to Kerry Buckeye for braving the snow and donating his V-strom

as promised kerry showed up on the snow packed side streets leading to the wheel works,,and promptly dumped his steed in a beautiful slow mo get off,,,

rather elegant the way he got it to point straight into our driveway all in one swoop,,all at circa 1mph,,,moments later we had it upright and pushed her into the shop,,,

so it's measuring time in the next day or two....

hope ya made it home safe n sound,,,poor guy ,,i loaned him my KLR the first one had aweak battery,,,the second one had a plugged pilot jet,,,i'm sure we'd have heard something by now,,,


soooo v-strom riders just what is it ya wan tme to come up in wire wheels for these babes...??...i'm all ears

woody

Woody, as far as price goes, is $1500 a possible goal for a built set of durable tubless spoked wheels? Will it have to be closer to $2000? I can understand where that parts and time are expensive when building wheels from scratch, just wondering what you think we can aim for......


Would pics with measurements help you in getting the DL1000 rear wheel and spacers spec'd, or do you absolutely have to have an actual wheel?

i have a [dl1000 is a v-srom i assume],,big V-strom sitting in my shop right now,,,measuring tomorrow,,,

regarding pricing,,,, it all depends on how much existing stuff i can transform,,,currently my BMW project is comming in at $2-2.5 grand depending on rims/colors and rotors included....i had to use other than bmw rotors to get the weight down

we'd be looking in that range,,,i don't want to go there,,,

$400-600 can be knocked of that price if we can recycle the existing rotors,,,even more if i can find oem hubs that would work,,,years ago circa late 70s i buildt a ton of wheels for the drag-racers using kawasaki and suzuki wire wheel hubs that interchanged with all their mags,,,they were a dime a dozen,,,,need something like that today,,everything brakes/sprockets interchanged back then

My shop is actually right across the street from Pete's BMW (Bavarian Motors West) place...even though I haven't acutally met him yet. But anyway, I could stop by some time. Let me know.

Bump city, Woody. I'd love a set for my DL1000.


(or at least a front, 'cause it's pretty much a KLR with a big engine...)

Ooh! Sorry about the arm! That sucks.

21" would be really cool. Any clearance issues?
