ok so i found the mod (thanks google) that linked back to a forum members bike. its a pretty old thread but very useful. has anyone else done this mod with a disc brake?
Hi TeeDub,just picked up a mint set of trees from a bw200 on ebay. cant wait to start this conversion. the only thing is i need a rear rim in black cause i have an 09. anyone know where i can find one? going to lace up to my front hub since i have a disc.
Give me a few days to dig out what wheels I can find and see what kind of shape they are in.hey brian. yeah i might be interested in the rear wheel. is it in good shape? no bends or burrs? how much you looking to get?
yeah, i did look into some custom hubs. alibaba has some hubs they offer and im trying to find out if they have any 32 hole with the disc mounts. any chance you or anyone knows what the details are for the front rotors? im sure the manufacturers are going to ask that question next.
yes.. use radial lacing, Which means you should skip 4 holes in the 3, 6, 9, and 12 position. Im gonna tell you its a bad idea. But if you must that is the way to do it. all it is, are spokes straight from hub into respective hole. no crossing and no lubing the nips haha. what hubs profiles? ummm the picture would be to type in radial lacing into images and there u go
I built a Honda FatCat out of a CRF450R a few years back... Here's a link: custom fat tire bike
I've noticed there are a few DOT approved tires for ATV's these days.... hmmmmmm.. perhaps it's time to build a new dual sport big wheel?? Using the DOT ATV tires on standard ATV rims opens up all kinds of options!!
Hi, did anyone ever figure a way to do the rear wheel to front conversion? Thanks
