18" rim swingarm clearance with big knobbies???

check this post for tire sizes we think may work,,,

Greg n i,,, after a bunch of discussion settled on using a 140/80 x18 knobby ,,the lower profile works better with a 3.5x 18 rim,,,it's 3/4'' narrower than the 4.25x17 rim used for the 150/70 x17 tires...notice that the lower the aspect ratio the wider the rims that are called for. this tire rim combo falls into what i call a great ''all-around'' tire/rim size ie: the 50-50 setup..

if you're mainly interested in offroad..than the 2.5 x18 and a 140/90 knobby may prove better...sidewalls pulled in ,,more rim protection,,,,

so here's a little more eye candy...

just got some photos shot....


here's the Superlite II hub with Super Tenere kit . It includes:

12 ST disc adapters
2 ea outer spacers

4 ea 6906-2RS bearings repacked with waterproof,grease
1 ea inner spacer
From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development


before n after we re-grease em with the proper amount n type of hi-speed water-proof boat wheel bearing grease,,so you all can have peace of mind crossing rivers,streams and billabongs
From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development
we present the SUPERLITE-ST hub assy with matching spacers
From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development
and sporting a pair of 11.75 Galfer wavy/floating discs,,,we'll be using 320mm units machined down to 310mm,,,if i order 100 ,Galfer will give em to us in the correct dimension
From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development

From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development


here's another teaser,,,SUPER-DUTY SS SPOKES sporting machined SS nipples!!!,

no more rusting,,no more corrosion,,,no more snapping,,,no more loosening [comes with set screws],,,and no more having 3-4 spoke threads show up at the nipple,,,

From Superlite Super Tenere Wheel Development
here's a quick peek at the new ss nipples on the left ; vs old short BMW style on the right,,,,notice how they cover the threads

left to right:
a.. new 4mm bmw WWW super-duty ss spoke with longer ss nipple
b..3.5mm oem bmw ss spoke with new WWW longer ss nipple
c..3.5mm oem bmw with powder-coated steel nipple [post '98]
d.. 3.5mm oem bmw painted nipple [pre '98]



so here's a pic showing the oem size galvanized spoke and nipple and our new Super-Duty 6g x.175 ss spoke and it's ss nipple for your Super Teneres,,,..the four BMW nipples to right were explained in the previous caption/pic



,,,,did a little measuring /weighing with what was readily available

1,,SUPERDUTY ss n ss spoke n nipple kit =2 lbs -11oz

2,,,1.6 x21 Excel double sig = =========3lbs 7.5oz
or,,, 1.85x21 Excel ==============

3,,,complete hub assy with 11.75'' Galfer disc= 7 lbs 7.5 oz

4,,hence the wheel should weigh in at 13lbs 10oz as is ,,,,,i cant imagine adding more than for the slightly wider rim and 12.2'' discs

FYI,,a 90/90x21 Rally Raid with inner tube and rim band weigh 8lbs 10oz

When i get more data,,,i'll edit it all again,,,several of my troopies are out so i didn't have access to the other data

Jay-Sus, Woody!

Those things are *GORGEOUS*!!!

Any more word on getting those to work with the stock ABS/TCS? And will they be available to lace to some stronger, tubeless rims in the stock 19" front and 17" rear sizes?

Thanks!

Dallara

more Q&As regarding the ST wheels...

Any more word on getting those to work with the stock ABS/TCS?sorry not yet,,,you all will be the first to know,,,

And will they be available to lace to some stronger, tubeless rims in the stock 19" front and 17" rear sizes? right now the Superlite ST is only available for the front as pictured,,now that hub can be laced to any conventional 36h rim and if it has a safety bead we can seal it for you.

once again the pickle we all are in is that Yamaha chose to go with 32 spokes on this beast,,,that puts a lot of load on the little spokes that are in there...over the years we have found that 36h are optimal for transmitting the energy....the other factor is that there are simply no 32h rims available in the sizes we need....so we are left to use dimple-less rims and drill them according to our needs.

Thanks!

hooray we found a 310mm wavy/floating rotor!!!

good news mates,,,yesterday afternoon Zach my numero uno Super-lacer stumbled upon an OEM KTM 310mm rotor,,,don't remember off-hand the model it's used on,,you just have to know it's gorgeous[[probably because it's made by Galfer and or Braking[who used to be part of Galfer from what i'm told] weighs 2lbs 7oz or 1105.6grams and is 5mm x310mm

they list @ $310 ea that's $10 less than Galfer's price for the 320mm rotor,,,pics will follow,,,

FYI i ordered 5 ea

Fender extension

Hi Woody ... just to let you know that this week I'll have my front fender raised 30 mm as you can see below ... will have to extend the brake line that goes from one caliper to the other in another 30 mm ... give me your thoughts












How is my black 21" rim and spokes doing?
Cheers,
Thagua

since you asked

have been on the horn with Galfer ....i for one am not a proponent of X-over brake line systems for doing off road stuff,,too many incidences of stuff jamming and sending you flying,,there 's several threads on this forum detailing the nasty results of said encounters...Hence,,,i have a dual ss brake line system that will be able to be mounted /converted in less than half an hour..you will be able to convert back to oem just as easy

the left and right brake lines will both converge at the spot where the left line hooks into the junction box,,i believe we will be able to re-cycle the double banjo bolt that is used on your left caliper,,, the one at the junction box should work on your left caliper...

Greg n i are working on the correct angles and lengths....they should enhace the feel of your brakes...the Galfer rotors with their green pads will add another enhanced sensitivity to your braking experience..in a very good way...

here's a pic of that junction box: compliment sof the wasp-man




see the double banjo bolt ??? that'll be used up on the right side of the junction where the new lines will end up,,,
notice the clip/bracket that holds the inner line in place ??? i remember thinking that i could get one of those and modify it so it could be used on the right side in a similar manner,,,dang ,,i spaced out ordering it with all of your hubs n stuff








How is my black 21" rim and spokes doing?they are all sitting here waiting for that big package from Japan...we ordered oem discs and a sample of everything needed for the next step,,,Greg and a bunch of others want me to just build a Superlite version of the oem hub sporting the TC capability,,we'll see first things first ,and Thagua you are monzter spoke kit on oem hub with 21'' rim #001,,

and waspman get's double disc Superlite ST #001 as well as a single disc race Superlite ST-SD #001

Cheers,
Thagua

Howdy Woody ... excellent if you could make that brake lines coming independently from the junction to each caliper ... the guide used on the left side can be used also on the right side.
Trust what Wasp makes (I'm his loyal follower) and ... what would be the difference between the OEM hubs and the Superlite double discs ordered by Wasp? ... will I need new calipers for the Galfer rotors? ... much difference in price?
Keep your lady happy taking her out to dinner.
Cheers,
Thagua
