Hey woody. Need a rear laced rim for my dl 650. I want to keep my brake and sprocket. Can even settle for a hub and will lace my own rom to an excel rim. Possible? Price?

I think he has a spoked wheel on the front which is relatively easy to do with an aftermarket hub. But he has the cast OEM wheel on the back and there is no way to lace a spoked rim to a cast wheel hub. And producing a new hub that mates up to the Suzuki cush drive and rear brake is significantly more difficult than the front. That's always been the bugaboo here - the rear.

Now we may be on to something for us V-Strom folks. What would be the price for such conversions where we provide stock V-Strom wheels and get back fully laced up spoked wheels. Please provide separate prices for front and rear, if different.

Initially, I would want to keep same wheel sizes, 19" front and 17" rear and use same size tires 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 (same as BMW GS).

Would price be any different if I wanted a 21" front?

And of course, do you have the time to perform such conversions?

I am not quite sure what this means. I don't live in colorado and really do not like to send out parts with an "open ended ticket" for a price. I can find a similar rim and machine the appropriate spacers, switch out the brakes and sprocket as needed but just wondering about which would make better financial sence for me. Everything is a cost benefit ratio.

hi,,what it means,,,,there's a spectrum of what can be done with little or no money and on the other end there are 'cost no object' projects with few limits....

and somewhere in between we can meet on common ground,,,,and that common ground is either myself and you you ,me and a group of my 'kindred spirits' that are willing to take on a particular project and do their part in achieving a successful outcome......

BWOE,,,,i have a lot more say so and control over ''in house''projects as opposed to those where i end up working with others....most of these folks need to make a living and hence i need to honor their needs...most have no interest in projects that will have sketchy numbers.....they want me to guarantee x number of these items for x number of dollars ,with these minimums for quantity over x number of months/years.....

somethings i'll build/solve something just out of principle ,,totally on my own time and dime,,,,other times i need to get the assistance of my ''kindred spirits'' ,,,,,so it all depends.

as for your comment about not sending someting open ended..hey!!!!,i can understand that,,,,we do give quotes before ya send....and the other hand i have those souls that just say''woodro,,do your magic and send a bill!!!''

the bottom line is we'll take good care of you as best we can.....within the time frame that it needs to be ready,,,,and spending our resources both time n $$$ wisely...

so the suzuki DRZ 400 SM rear 17 inch spoked rim tubeless doesn't work?
any one try it?
I am eagerly looking for a ADV bike and the WeeStrom looks right for me.

and with spoke rims it is all the better.

so i can ride away where ever and not on a llama
