That was the next thingI was going to bring upAnd could you remove the license plate holder as well or a shortened version ?
I can't imagine having to deal with any of the leaks coming from the spokes I just find it an inconveniece if I ever had to do so. Looking forward on seeing some different options for wheels as well.I've asked my dealer when my options list goes in for build if I can get these alloys in gloss black instead of the oe spoked rims as I can't be doing with puncture on tubes ,also without any centre stand I won't be able to fix myself whilst on tour,so I will get an answer when the official pricing gets released as to whether I can get an option wheel ??
it's another reason why i want the wheels off the concept. there's nothing to worry about with them.I can't imagine having to deal with any of the leaks coming from the spokes I just find it an inconveniece if I ever had to do so. Looking forward on seeing some different options for wheels as well.
- Concept 90 wheels look cool. I actually will look into having the spoked wheels sealed and the cost and will let the forum know, when I find out.alexfordThat looks nice. I wonder if somebody will make the concept 90 wheels.
Only downside is that you can't remove the rear shock using the stand, since pressure needs to be taken off the swingarm. Need a engine lift like the biketower, or a floorjack on the bottom of the engine(balance issues there but I did it fine).General Discussion - Pardon me for restating. Removal of each wheel requires a lift for the chassis or an individual wheel stand. The local BMW store in Newbury Park quoted me the fact that the BMW stand is no longer available in North America for order. I looked on line and then spoke with my son who recommended the Pit Bull stand for the rear wheel. Since maintenance and custom work require a rear-wheel stand, I ordered the Pit Bull stand specifically made for the R bikes including the R9T. I used RevZilla.com to place the order, $179.00 U.S., free shipping in the 48 contiguous states. Just sayin'; just said.alexford
The forum already knows . . . according to this thread;I actually will look into having the spoked wheels sealed and the cost and will let the forum know, when I find out.alexford
I contacted a wheel builder who referred me to BMW wheel specialist, "Woodies" (or, Woody's), located in Denver, 303-936-0232; he has ideas on the R9T wheels. In Orange County, Ca. is Wheel Works, 714-530-6681. The guys who got back to me build mostly Harley wheels. He had no recommendation with regard to the R9T wheels other than to contact these wheel specialists. I think Dennis is the guy from Woody's.quick and dirty r1200r wheels. thoughts?
