Good luck folks

that is a level of organization that we have not reached; or they did not share the list with me...

i bet regionally there are some with many email addresses. alternatively, I could throw the documents in my Yahoo Briefcase which is linked in the Index Thread. Plenty of free room in there that should last for awhile.

Here it is: http://f2.pg.briefcase.yahoo.com/bc/...c=bc%26.view=l

Lots of stuff in there so take a look and help yourself.

then they should all be in sync,,,and since ''things equal to same things are equal''..ie:the 4-5Nm vibration,,, you can be sure that if your wheel is running true at this point,,,that all your spokes are working fairly equally
Ahem, 5-6Nm is the spec.

Let's stop that trick of the light and too much caffeine, she said...

So the replacement Excel that KTM is trading for our recalled DID setup will have larger nipples - its an Excel thing not a KTM choice. Gotcha; thanks.

Now if only they would be sports and do the rear at the same time... I feel unbalanced with the rear DID and small nipples staying on there.

According to the recall notice, they are swapping the whole wheel out. If I understand the notice correctly, the original hubs are drilled with an inferior angle (from an engineering standpoint) for the spokes, which is part of the problem with the original wheel.

It seems the whole wheel is to be replaced.

Thanks for the offer, Woody. Since the ball is already rolling at my local KTM delaership, I'll just wait it out.

FYI,,,,there are rims sold to the public and then there are rim speced out to the manufacturers needs,,,,the publicly sold Excel rims have the upgraded holes and matching Excel nipples,,,

i am almost positive that if you get a wheel assy from KTM it will have the oem sized nipples in it,,,not to worry we can always upgrade it,,,blueprint it,,,you guys should get a voucher to spend wherever ya want it and get your ideal set -up for just a lil extra$$$......now there's an idea

Bluhduh doG dang it

The shop in Modesto that is doing the insurance repairs to my bike says he called up KTM NA in Ohio and they told him that the recall notice is for European bikes only. He says he even gave them my VIN number and they still said nope.

I look at the pdf of the KTM recall notice and it says "Countries: All"
And my VIN number is on the list...

WTF is going on...

Meat,
That's complete BS! I looked at the PDF too, and it definitely says "Countries: All"

If I get a similar line of bull from my local dealer, I'm gonna be pissed. As long as the document is the real deal, and I'm sure it is based on it's source, then KTM USA is doing some very shady stuff. First there is no notice sent to original owners, and now a balking of following through when the recall notice clearly states "Countries: All."

Maybe we should be looking for a retail outlet that has a thousand 21" Excel wheels for sale...

I pinged a dealer on the board here; lets see if he can find out more. Waiting to read what you find out too.

While on the subject of rims. Does anyone have a spare set of stock rims for a KTM 640 18" back, 21" front with hubs that they would like to sell. I need an extra set for dirt use.

Thanks.

Just stopped by the service counter of my local KTM dealership. My new wheel is on order, they're just waiting for it to get in.

I'll let you know when I've swapped it out.
