Replacement Rims

Hi Guys,

I've been told that the OEM rims are a bit weak on the Adventure R and, my front end has now developed a slight "pogo" effect. I'm having them checked today but expect them to come back and tell me, the fronts dented (although I might of course, get lucky!).

Can anyone suggest replacement rims that are an easy swap? Will I need new discs? Also, I would of course like to keep using tubeless.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Sorry, I meant the 1190, not the 990 (Although I have heard of one guy fitting 990 aftermarket wheels).

The 1190s are not on their site that I can find, but their Facebook page says they make 1190s. Woody's are the best.

Thanks. Most my riding is on rocky/gravel type terrain so guess for puncture repair, really need to stay tubeless.

Orangecicle - Thanks, I'll take a look after work where I can access FB.

re

Yeah this morning doing about 50mph I hit a smallish rock in the road and the front wheel got two smileys and went flat instantly. This is the second time I have bent the front rim on it, I was running it at 3.1bar up front to prevent this but I still got the smiley.

Will ask the insurance how much is the excess on two new rims. Rear also damaged. Might be cheaper for them if I go aftermarket and get harder rims.

If they are willing I will then try and buy back the old hubs, re lace them with the normal hoops and use them for road wheels.

Woodys

Uses the rad hubs and excel / dirtstar same as rad just do a three cross up front vs two cross ( call both company's do the leg work and see what they say )

I live 5 mins from woodys they laced mine up

You can do a tubeless set up on this wheel if you want. I like tubes for " off road" due to what happened to 2wdrift.

Yeah the best solution would be to have two sets of wheels. Tubed 21 and 18 for offroad, and a 19 and 17 set for road use.

I read somewhere that the rims are too wide to be very strong, so it might be good to go for thinner rims for the offroad setup.

SE rims

All KTM 950 SEs came with DD Dirtstar rims. My '06/'07 has 34,000 miles of mostly dirt, and the rims are still straight. Much better then the rims on the Adventures:
