I am building an F800 Dakar inspired ride as well (red, white and blue). Maybe blue instead of red?? This would be for a second set.

In fact... PM me with price. Let's talk about a bulk order of say five sets for resale in OZ??
the black on black we can pull off quickly....

the other colors ,,, another week or so...

the $$$$ is still in air since RAD an di haven't got all the data,,however it'll be here shortly,,,we were in a bigger hurry to get em out to you all

will keep ya posted and put you as #5 on the ''honey do list'' post #6

Hey Woody, love the product and saving the pennies....in the meantime I've got a question for ya.

I'm going to a high-fender for the F8 and am strongly considering running just the left brake rotor to save on complications of the set-up and reduce unsprung weight. Given that you are the wheel/hub guru around these parts, can you advise if there is anything from a wheel/hub perspective that I need to consider when switching to a single rotor/brake or is it as easy as it seems?

(I would be keeping the left rotor/brake as it's the one with the ABS sensor)

Also, have you seen any ill effects of guys running the Tubliss system in their wheels?

Thanks.

hi barton..
What you need to consider when swapping to a single disc set-up :

1..will the reduced braking/brake swept area still be adequate for stopping your bike adequately in the conditions you will be riding in

2,,when going from twin to single disc you will need to compensate by going to a smaller master cylinder piston in order to maintain the proper ''MA/mechanical advantage'',,,,[ the hydraulics wizards can chime in for the proper lingo and formulas,,,PLEASE ]

3,,you can always go to a larger disc if need be....

4,,i've always opted for dual disc set-ups when road racing as opposed to some of my friends going the extra large single disc route...mainly because of the balanced loads which didn't cause the front end to twist.,,invariably they needed to install fork braces to counteract this problem...
nowadays the front end components have large diameter axles and fork tubes all enhancing ie reducing flex...so you are good to go there

5,, going to ss brake lines will enhance the feel and braking power

6,, regarding the 'tubliss' system,,,i do not choose to get into the pros /cons on that one...the guys in the shop do not want to mess with them anymore ,,especially since customers want to use them on the highway...Tubliss has specific disclaimers ''for off-road use only'' or something to that affect...sorry, same goes for Dyna-Beads

some of the finished product pics for F800GS Hubs, Galfer Rotors, Supersprox

the big box from RAD arrived a few hours ago...like little children on christmas morning.....

we placed the order and Santa delivered,,so here's to Shane and Bob at RAD for translating my scratchy notes into something exquisite...team work...the first round we hit the target and a lil adjustment we hit the center of the bull's eye

these are #001 and #002..the orange is for Donato Yannatelli the black for never.ride

just talked with my folks at RAD the F800 GS hubs will run circa the same as the KTM dual flange front $300 and the new rear will be $50 more because of the added adapter plate that save a bunch of $$$ becaus eyou can now recycle your oem rear disc and ABS ring..hence $549 complete

add $180 silver or $255 black ,,,$105 ss &Zartan spoke kit or ss &ss nipple kit=$125,,superlace=still only $99

hubs ya can request most any color ,,,no extra $$$

I have one of the rear hubs that consumes bearings. If I wanted one of these hubs laced up with an 18" rim will the ABS still work? I assume these will reuse the same axle. Sorry if this is a repeat question.

FYI,,,,so far the ABS has not quit working on any rim mods we have made using either your oem or the new billet hub..

you will reuse everything but the new hub with sprocket and disc carrier

don't forget we can also repair your screwed up hub!!,,,,,just $50 for parts and labor when we rebuild your wheel

Hi Woody,

What kind of modifications are you doing to the hubs?

Would it work to start with a stock cast 950/990 one?

Thanks,
Lukas

Sorry for the confusion. This is what I am referring to:

Basically I was wondering if you could make a stock 950/990 rear wheel work as well, or just the RAD hub. Not concerned about ABS etc, so I think the critical dimension would be the width between sprocket and brake disc mounting surfaces?

i assume it's an F800GS rear you are trying to build???,,,the ktm 950/990 utilizes a 25mm axle as opposed to the F800GSs 20 mm so ya have to down size somehow...

then ,,i believe they changed the internal spacers and left and right spacers as well,,,not to mention the custom disc brake adapter.....i was'nt part of the details ...i did the main configuration and general direction of the final product,,ie maintaining KTM sprocket configurations for broader available sprocket selection.,,,the maintaining of oem bmw disc and abs utilization...and getting them to you....

here's aquick peak at Donato Yannatellis F800GS billet set #001

donato yannitelli's ride report on 19/17 RAD orange billet hubed F800GS

RIDE REPORT by Donato Yanitelli billet hubs #001

donato called me this afternoon and couldn't be more thrilled....beyond his expectations,,,700+ miles of hammering the New England back-roads,,,over the last couple of days

anyway he wanted me to share this with you,,,so here goes,,, ps: all he had was these cell phone pics as a teaser,,,he's going to hire a professional photographer for his official ride report...i told him to take a ride to Jersey City and visit our very own photo wizard sakurama...and his team of magicians at Team Incomplete's headquarters...http://www.teamincomplete.com/




dywine@optonline.net


show details Mar 8 (2 days ago)


got out for 600 miles over the weekend. went to max ny store to show the boys the finished product....they loved it. the configuration and set up came out far better than my hopes.this bike handles like you can not believe. built for exactly the kind of riding i love on the kind of roads that i prefer that are less than perfect in condition.

elka did the shock and forks that are dog nuts.galfer rotors, conti attacks and of course woodys magic wheels take this machine to a new level. took the fork tubes up 5mm and run 30.5 psi front/ 35.5 rear.

this is the ticket for back road hell rides not heavy off-road. this thing will tear through beat-up pavement, tar/chip and hard pack like you would not believe, then you can take it to a track day.

thank you all for the first class work and service.

p.s
if anyone want's to know if it's all worth it.......give them my number.

Thanks for the info Woody!

I am trying to find out what it would take to fit a KTM 950/990 rear wheel to the F800. Just doing some research and covering all my bases before I buy my first BMW....

You guys are killing me!!!!

OK, so now the hook is set...but I can't see Donato's pics without a google account...

Could someone PLEASE post them for easier viewing here?

OK Woody,
After reading through all these threads my head is spinning...

My question is:
Can you build a 19" front/17" rear KTM-type tubeless set of rims from my F800GS for street use?

Thanks!

Hey Woody... The wheels are in Sydney for the two F800Gs's... Thanks mate

Now... I know you guys don't have the Tenere, so how do we go about getting an 18/21 set with RAD hubs for the XT660Z? If I get axle sizing and spacing etc, would that work? Talk to me Woody!!

BTW.. Have you fitted your Ralle Moto steering dampener to the GS yet?

Steve
