watching closely

The only holdback on the 21 for me is the fender clearance issue. Will there be an issue with your side stand or center stand?

Sidestand was a concern for me, so bolted two 12mm thick plastic (old chopping board).
I'm happy with the 24mm longer sidestand, even with the standard wheels.
Centre stand still works ok, with new tyres the rubber just touches on a flat surface. So a small hump on the ground is sometimes handy. In the shed, I just use a piece of conveyer rubber under the stand for the extra height.
FYI TKC80 tyres aren't anywhere near as tall as the other options.
BTW, i'm also using the 18" on the rear.



Cheers

Gigidity!!!!! Okay like yay! But only the rear showed up. @&$"@&?!! Delayed in shipping somewhere hopefully tomorrow for the weekend.

So I can say it is crazy beautiful. And only 9.5lbs!!!!! Should be about half the oem one.

I will get the skins on now and mount this thing tonight.

Let's hope the front comes tomorrow.

TKC on and ready. Only took ten minutes to spoon it on and not one scratch! First for everything.

The socket fit into the rear holes tightly so wrap a piece of tape on it lest you scratch your new hub.

This thread is bad news for me in that I now want it and this is expensive.

I hope someone can leave a step by step pic tutorial and maybe a video with all these steps.

From your statement you might have missed the point of this thread... the Rallymoto triple clamp that increases the clearance of the 21 front wheel and fender...

Just in case you missed that...

I don't have the step by step but it is pretty easy. I will put some thought into it and post up some steps - no video though

They are beautiful (no front yet and test ride this weekend) but for those light of stomach or heavy of wallet here is the total cost breakdown.

Notes: All figures in CDA dollars and include all duties and shipping where applicable from the US to CDA.

Full wheel set and assembly + shipping - std black, superlite hubs, stainless spokes and nipples.
2512.70

Stainless, race bolts from Probolt (you gotta buy em anyway and price is comparable to OEM bolts from Budds here in Ontario)
76.27

Tires - TKC's front and back, 90/90-21, 140/80-17
Tubes - Heidenau
Brake pads - Front
$490.11

Wave Rotors - Beemerboneyard
$513.98

Total: $3593.06 All duties, taxes and shipping. (Don't tell my wife)
Note: I did have to buy a socket for this $40 but don't count the tools.
And, you would save about $1,000 if you got your oem hubs swapped out instead of buying a set of superlites but they are the $%^&#!!

Anyway, all good and an easy switch between the two.... which is nice and dirt tires rims and road rims dedicated set.

Now some will say (me included) shit I could have gone away on a cool ride for a month on that or to Europe for a week etc... true. I didn't buy a new truck this year and didn't swap out my bike - instead thinking to make the one I have more fun and enjoyable as I dig it muchly....

It is all a matter of personal perspective me thinks.

Tracking says it is only a day away so lets hope!!!

On another note - the difference in weight for the rears is a full 6lbs lighter.

I suspect the front will be close.

...it is beautiful yep.

Love those wheels! Woody's are awesome, I'm betting you could tell the difference right away from the stock wheels.

Haven't even ridden it yet - doing a bit of work so I can be carefree on the ride.... in about 30minutes.

They weigh in at about 11-12lbs lighter which is awesome but the 21 is what I am looking for.

All went well with the build - the only issue that came up was the rubberized thrust washers on the disks - you can't buy them separately and I will have to source those... on my own as I do not want the stainless disks pushed up against the aluminum hub.

All good so far - now i have to go for a ride.
