Talked to Woody's today!!!
http://www.woodyswheelworks.com/

I should have my wheels very soon.
after a bunch of tire testing We will be running a 21" front and a 17" rear
It all came down to what Tires we can get and what Tire we like.
So we will not be changing to an 18" rear end.
(But I will still do some more testing with the 18" rear wheel )

The 17" Scorpion Rally should be good in Baja (and I'm assuming then you aren't going to run a mousse in the rear).

That is the tire that I am running now and the tire that I'm leaning towards the heaviest. At this point we are going to run Tubeless rear with bib moose in the front
As for running bib mousses in the rear, I do believe the weight and the speed of the bike is too much for a bib to handle for long-term
Unless of course someone wants to come up and do a sponsorship on bibs then I'll gladly run them.

I ran the Scorpion Rally out in Moab on the Stelvio and it worked well just about everywhere. The only downside was a lack of lateral grip on loose gravel and any kind of sidehill, but that's not really a big surprise given the tread pattern.

Hey Baja Dad,

I'm local to Woody's and am taking my rear wheel to them on Monday. My original plan was to have them seal it for tubeless use. They suggest converting to the heavy duty spokes... I do ride the bike on Colorado high passes (certainly some very rough trails) - but not Baja.

Just seal it? Upgrade the spokes? Hub? Rim? Suggestions?

Thanks!

I've tried pretty hard to break some superlace work on a KTM 950, unsuccessfully.

But, if he's local you could wait to have it done once you tweak a wheel as a test to know that you need it. If you never tweak a wheel its beer money.

Now that's some good advise.

Superlace would not be a bad idea, given that the XC is not exactly a lightweight.

Thanks for the replies.

Sealing is $99. Superlace and sealing is $375. They will guarantee the seal for a year if the wheel is Superlaced,

I'm thinking the Superlace is the way to go...

Woody does excellent work. The previous owner of the KTM had the Superlace done to both wheels after tweaking the OEM's riding in Baja.

There is nothing like peace of mind. You will have a couple fewer things to worry about when you are done at Woodys. Go for it!
