19/17

I've come to the realization that my 990 is and forever will be a street machine. So I want to pony up and put together a 19/17 or set-up. I want to use as much of my own stock hardware for the swap as possible and want reliability. I don't need the most bitchin stuff, just want something that will give me confidence in the tight corners. I'm looking to spend around 1,000$. Is this realistic/if so what are the best options I have? Thanks!

Well we've been known for our creativity,,here goes

1,,spend money on the stuff that makes the REAL difference,,,IMHOheavy duty spoke kit using Superlace technology,,,,circa $450 for both wheels....

2,, recycle your hubs saves ya circa $900

3,,we usually have good used stuff ie rims,,check with Zach,,he knows what's there in our warehouse

4,,, squander $200 for sealing for tubeless,,,the benefits outweigh the negatives(what negatives????)

5,,, FYI,,,using Zartan nipples versus SS nipples saves circa $40,,they work fine if ya don't ride in corrosive climes/salt water

6,,, we may also have really good used rubber sometimes...for added savings

7,,,revert back to Oem gearing for optimal road performance

8,, standby for the funniest canyon carving Tarmac eating beastie,,,puts the SPORT into dual-sport
Hope that helps
Holler
Woody

Howdy, I have the 19x17 setup on my 990. Is there a shorter kickstand option? She sits perilously upright when on the side stand.
Amazing parts by the way. Bikes a weapon.

We can modify the side-stand to be shorter, adjustable and even a larger foot print if wanted.

We can modify any side-stand that has the room and need of adjust-ability. It only cost's 99 per side-stand to make it adjustable, and a bigger foot print with a fresh paint job.

Thanks zach

19/17 set up for a 690 enduro R

Hi,

What would you recommend for a 19/17 set up for a 690.

I want the bike for ADV touring, any views on the compromise between road and offroad performance with this change.

I need the bike lower as well and this change will also help with that.

I'd like an idea of cost and options for tubeless rims.

I am thinking about TKC 80 front and K60 rear, what widths would I need.

Any help/advice appreciated.

thanks dave.

I want to build a 19 X 2.5" front wheel and would run a 110/80-19 tire on it. But it seems that Sun rims, only come in a 2.15" or a 2.75" size. Which size would you recommend?

110/80-19 tire/rim choices!

We would recommend Excel 2.5 x 19 rim, the Excel rim's are much stronger than the Sun rim's, and the 2.5 will fit the 110/8-19 tire's best.

Thanks zach

Hi Woody!

Do you have a bolt on kit for a ktm 950 sm -06?
19/17
2,5" in front and 4,5" back.
Black hubs and black rims with stainless nipples and spokes.
What's the cost for that setup with shipping to Sweden?
You can send a pm if you want.

We can build a wheel set for you using billet 950 KTM hub's, excel 17 x 4.25, 19 x 2.5 black rim's, stainless steel spokes/nipples and sealed for tubeless, the set would use KTM 950 sprocket's and rotor's using brake adapter's to fit the front 950 adv rotor's for the SM.

A set would be close to $3,000 + 200 for shipping for the set with rotor's, sprocket's and sealed for tubeless tire's.

Email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com if you are interested in building a new set.

Thanks Zach

I have an 1190R... Looking to add a pavement focused set of wheels. I am willing to live with speedo issues. On the fence between a set of 19/17 and 17/17. I initially planned to go full 17" but think ground clearance may limit ability to use very sticky rubber up front in 17" anyway.

My real question is are stock hubs the way to go or are there after market available yet? Also on the rear is 5" rim the widest to go or can you go to 5.5" to mount 180 rubber? Not sure what all you have done for the 1190 yet, I know it has been done with 5.5" rear(with forged wheels), but don't know if there were issues as all I have is a picture from this thread (shown with 3.5"-17f, 5.5"-17r)

19/17 or 17/17 ,,,,,,OEM hubs or BILLET for 1190R ADV,,,???

hi wilmar13,,,,being short on time ,,i'll answer in highliter

On the fence between a set of 19/17 and 17/17.Unless ya really like super quick steering the majority of folks love the congenial feel and all around great handling of the 19/17 set-up...it also happens to have the greatest selection of dual sport tires available

I initially planned to go full 17" but think ground clearance may limit ability to use very sticky rubber up front in 17" anyway. Looks like the bike in pic [ if it's yours ],,,sports a 17/17 combo.... a 19/17 combo raise front circa 3/4''......adding a bit of ground clearance.

My real question is are stock hubs the way to go or are there after market available yet?
I believe we have the right billet hubs for this set-up..my right hand guy Zach will chime in if that's not the case...FYI,,IMHO the billet hubs are stronger and are currently available in a variety of anodized finish for practically the same $$$ as the OEMs
...so why not have extra Bling and strength????

Also on the rear is 5" rim the widest to go or can you go to 5.5" to mount 180 rubber?
We can 5.5 on rear for the 180/55 tires..these actually drop the bike down abit,,,their diameter is smaller...Sakurama runs this set-up...you may want to give me a lil more info regarding your riding style/how hard and hwere ya do your riding....the first post on this thread has pics/ride reports to help ya figure some stuff out

Not sure what all you have done for the 1190 yet, I know it has been done with 5.5" rear(with forged wheels), but don't know if there were issues as all I have is a picture from this thread (shown with 3.5"-17f, 5.5"-17r)

ok gotta run

spke length

anyone knows whats the correct spoke length to get for the 19"x2.15 front rim? I'm converting my 525 exc to be more street oriented but still want to retain that off road capability and hence the 19" rim. According to the online spoke length calculator, i should be using a 4x208mm spokes but somehow it seems like its a bit too long. Any folks here encountererd the same issue?

hi,,i'm assuming you have some type of tubeless rear wheel arrangement...if yes,,need to know if it's the oem version ,or any one of several variants used fro sealing a wire wheel fro tubeless use..

if you are running a tube,,,well then 2 things basically can occur,,,you are seeing a little bit of the trapped air escape and/or you pinched your tube...

wait a few minutes and the trapped air will leak out..re-check tire tire pressure n adjust as needed....if ya pinched the tube you'll have no air after awhile..Rx R&R with new tube be a lot more careful this go around
