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 if you are converting from 21'' to 19'' using same lace pattern you can essentially just divide the 2'' difference in diameter by 2= the radius..hence your new spoke length should be circa 1'' shorter than your existing spokes...

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

1,,make sure the sealing rim strips and grooves are really clean and void of nicks

2,, for a more permanent back up sealing technique....i recommend first to make sure your wheel is trued and all the spokes are properly tensioned...

3,, then you want to clean your wheels /de-grease around the nipples

4,, apply sealant like Goop around all the heads and sides of nipples,,allow to cure..a second application is mo betta..

5,, reinstall the oem sealing strips,,FYI,,we're tinkering with adding alittle silicone seal as an added sealing measure...

hope that helps

Tube Challenged

Guys, Ive just got a rear flat with my 17x5.5 Spoke set up. I'm running 180/55r-17 tires and I've only been able to find 140/80-17 tubes. Would it be safe to run that supermoto tube size on my set up, Thanks!

In a pinch that tube would work, but better to replace with better profile tube and ideally Radial since most tires in that size are radial. Most places do not stock because it is rare to have tube in Radial tire. This is a quality tube from Metzeler: https://www.denniskirk.com/metzeler/...prd/534063.sku

Thanks,
Chris

640 Adventure rear wheel on 07 525 XC-W

Hi!

I'm running a 640 adventure rear Cush drive wheel on my 525 XC-W bike and I need a new rim for it. I bought spokes from your shop earlier this year but the Moose racing rim I bought must have been for a non cush drive rear hub so I need to buy another new rim.

Can I use a newer model 18" rear rim from a 690 Enduro or will the nipple indexing be different? Do you have any rim options other than the factory rim?

Thanks!
Rick

690 Enduro rim to 640 hub

The stock rear 640 wheel is a Jap lace x4 drive/x2 disc lace pattern & the stock rear 690 wheel is a Euro lace x4 drive/x3 disc lace pattern. In addition the 690 hub is a bit wider than the 640 hub.

So, if you want to make it work you will want to use the 690 spokes, nipples, rim, & Euro lace pattern x4/x3 on the 640 hub. The disc side spokes will likely be a bit long and likely you will need to grind some of them if they do protrude. You also may need to re-angle the rim slightly to prevent binding.

Otherwise you can purchase Jap lace pattern rims off of non-cush drive wheels, like the KTM, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, 125-525 rims, but you will need to re-angle holes to prevent binding. Only rim that will work without some drilling is the stock 640 rim, rim re-angled by us, or custom drilled rim for that hub.

Hope that helps and holler if any other questions.

Thanks,
Chris
