First ride on my R today and I did exactly the same thing.
Not as bad as yours but enough to create a front end puncture >:(
Every few km had to stop and pump the tyre.
Got to the Drakensberg, found a hammer and piece of hard plastic. Managed to bang the ding out enough for the tyre to reseal.
The rock I hit wasn't that big. I think these rims are a bit soft

It wasnt a ROCK. It was on a nice gravel highway. Some of the rocks are in the road, half underground, other half sticking out. Nice and round of the years of riding over them. So I come over the rise, see the stone/rock, try to miss it but dont do much effort cause I know it wont do anything to the bike. I was on 160kph. So the front clips the stone/rock/boulder wtf ever  >:D and I hardly feel any impact on steering.

Next moment, still at 160, the front wheel goes INSTANTLY FLAT!! FFS!!!! First time ever this happened to me.
Bike pulls left, you turn right, fuckall happens!! It runs where it wants to!! So I locked up rear brake, and try my best to keep the front end on the gravel as far as I can. Eventually stopped in the veld next to the  fence  >:D

So there I am, 170-180km from home, between nowhere and fuckall, all alone, with a flat tyre. So I took a rock, and started bashing the rim. The rock split in two. After rock nr 6 being split up in two, I tried to pump tyre with snot strips in there. Nothing, still wont keep air.

To give you guys an idea how the road looks like, this pic I took 5min before the rim said bye bye.
To say the least, I'm not impressed with these rims, not at all  >:D

I left a bud of mine at the Royal Hotel, he is sleeping there tonight. So after I smashed all the rocks in the area, I phoned him. He came with a moerse hammer, and we moered it pappa!!!

Is it 160 from Hotel to the Tar, or 160 from Hotel into PE?

My rock was also one of those round ones half buried in the soil. Was doing approx 120km/h at the time. Was on the road between Tugela Ferry and Weenen. I felt the hit but was nothing, not even a minor deflection on the bars. Will have to be more careful in the future.

As an aside I need to move the bars forward and add a 20mm spacer. Feel very cramped while standing on the bike.

Nicely said, same here today!!

So now I want to know, if you cant even ride over them, what then? Surely the rims must be able to handle that?

Hoor wat jy se.  Tubeless bly maar konstante issue as die rim buig

En tube bly n issue as jy konstant dorings in jou wiele kry.

Ek weier om n bike met tubes te ry, dit was die enigste rede hoekom ek nie al 2 jaar terug n 990 gekoop het nie.

Ek hou nie van werk nie, veral nie as ek nog in die bos is met full kit en die son brand my ook nog nie :imaposer:  :imaposer:
 :ricky:  :ricky:

Dalk moet jy maar 'n tjoep begin saamry.  Dit vat minder sweet om hom in te sit as om al die klippe in die omgewing te breek.  Press hom weer reguit as jy in die dorp kom, te minste hou die verf dan so bietjie beter.  Dit sal hom weer laat seel tot volgende naweek.  8)

Die dilemma begin homself nou vinnig manifesteer.....  Daar is nie wiele (rims en/of tyres) wat die off-road behandeling en die spoed waarteen 'n 1190 kan travel kan hanteer nie.  Vir die oomblik sal eienaars maar moet besluit of hulle wil jaag en of hulle paaie met klippe wil ry, en die bike dienooreenkomstig opstel.  Dis nie 'n nuwe ding nie.  Ons sit al van 2003 af 1.85" Excel en DID rims op die 9x0's.  En hulle het met 'n 2.15" rim gekom.  Nou kom die 1190 met 'n 2.5" rim.  Dit vat geen breinchirurgie om uit te werk wat nou gaan gebeur nie.  Ons moet nou net bepaal hoe 'n 1.85" rim met 'n TKC of Karoo vaar teen 250 km/h. 

Die 800 se titel van "Lewensgevaarlik" word skielik bedreig.....  :biggrin:

Op my GSA, het ek klippe en slote geslaan dat dit voel of die vurke middeldeur gebreek het. Geen skade op rim!

Op 47 000km het ek nie eers een puncture gekry nie.

So ek verstaan nie, maak KTM hulle rims dan uit klei uit  >:D  >:D

Ek het ook nog nie 'n BMW rim kon buig nie.

Die KTM rims was nog altyd 'n issue.  Ek het al 6 9x0's besit en almal se voorrims vervang.  800 BMW gebruik dieselfde rims.

Jy kan maar solank 'n thread begin vir die ouens wat progressive springs in die voor vurke gaan sit ook.  Soos die ouens gewoond raak aan die fietse gaan die offroad spoed begin styg en die voor suspensies begin bottom.  Dan buig die rims nog beter.  Hilton sal moet springs begin aanhou - een van die dae gaan daar 'n ry 1190R's voor sy shop aantree.

Dalk is ek verkeerd, maar dit was my indruk van die voor suspensie op die R.  :)

Tyre pressure front and rear was 2.5bar.

Too soft or too hard?
Title: Re: Post a pic of your rim.
Post by: SGB on May 26, 2013, 02:27:03 pm
Too hard for off road and ok for tar.  But if you go softer, the rims bend easier....  Too much bike for various conditions....

Im normally on 2bar front and rear for gravel.

But seeing pics of the rims I kept it at 2.5, well, that also did not help  >:D  :pot:

ek het een keer teen seker so 60km/h teen 'n 8 duim randsteen met die S10 opgejaag (kar voor my ingedraai) en die rim het NIKS makeer, so ek hoop nie jy is reg dat KTM klei vir hulle rims gebruik nie.....  :patch: :lol8:

The KTM's front wheel should never be on the ground, hence they don't have to make them stronger. Harden the F@ck up and ride your bike like it is stolen.

Hey

Ek is in gesprek met KTM TWINS in die states en hulle dink dat hulle die meer offroad bias excel rims sal kan fit op KTM 1190 hubs (sal tubes moet wees) korrespondensie soos volg  (sal laat weet wat die uitkoms is):

Hello Dries

I am sure that this could be done. We can't promise anything unfortunately simply because we have not received that bike into the states as of yet but I do show that your bike uses the standard 5mm Spokes that KTM likes to use on the Adventure. They aren't the same part number but that could have to do with color, coating or length due to the Tubeless Wheels that the new 1190 is running. Not sure if the bladder that is in your front and rear wheel will still fit in the new rim though. You may loose your tubeless wheels in the process.

No need to get rims and stuff from the USA.  Just buy the DID rims and corresponding spokes from your KTM dealer.  It has been done before.

   I'll also change the rims to the same rims with I have used he last years.

   This is 2,50 inch on the rear and 1,85 on the front.  (DID Rims)

JP:I used the front hub of the 1190 and changed the rim to a smaller.
On the rear wheel I use the 990 hub but also a smaller rim.

Toors: why did you not use the 1190 hub in the rear? in using the 990 rear hub did you have to make/fit spacers? If so how did you get this done?

JP: On the rear wheel of the 1190R they are is using a different way of lacing the wheel.
So you canít mount an offroad rim on the original hub.
The original 990 hub fits without spacers.

Went to LDBA this WE, what a fun... Add a 3kg hammer in your tool box, rim needs "rectification" every evening ;D. This rim is just crap and finished the WE completely destroyed.

More dangerous, when deflated, the tyre doesn't remain on the bead. Imagine the pothole coming straight to you at 160kph, tyre pressure loss instantaneously, tyre off the bead... no way to survive.

DID rim is being placed now + heavy duty tube,

Ride safe, have fun

Had same problem with my 990. got 1190 now. No rim is going to survive a rock hit at 160kms/h!!! Best advise - when you see a rock coming up, accelerate - its helps lift front tyre. Did this a few times after same damage, and never had a problem again.

I hit my rim in a proper pothole in Swaziland, (I have the 19"Adventure not the "R") and I thought I dinged it as it was quite a hard shot, but luckily when I stopped it was fine.
My tyres were however hard as  was scared of dinging the rims after reading all the stories on the forum. From there I decided to take it a bit easier.  :thumleft:

I can tell you that if I had hit my previous bikes - 950/990 in a similar way that I hit the 1190 the other day, the smiley would most probably have been there, and the same goes for my GS800, but I must admit, I never rode with such hard tyres before, maybe because now the TPMS complainsall the time below 2.3/4 bar
I have had smileys on all my bikes so far with the 21" wheels and I was hoping that the 19"would hold up as good as that of the GS 19" ers. Lets hope, but in the mean time I'll keep those tyres well pumped.  :thumleft:

Had a chat to Rad - front kit is about R4k (spokes, spoke nipples and narrower DID rim (1.85 I think) they use your old hub

Also got them to give me rough idea of complete front wheel (DID rim) (including bake discs and everything else required is about R12 500 have to order some bits and bobs.

they confirmed that the 990 rear wheel (DID Rim) fits the 1190 (have to change sprockets and brake discs (with some other bits and bobs) Complete rear wheel - so that you can just swop around) is about R14500 

So possible but an expensive exercise - have to sleep over it - but might still get a set with Mitas E09 front and rear - so on road tyres during the week and off-road tyres over the weekend - and still cheaper than a second bike.  I will also add quick axle pullers so should be a 20min job

Your wheels have 80% N in them already.  How is 20% more going to affect heat build up?  Tubes are a little more admin to change on the road.  But once you get comfortable doing it, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.  But that is just me....

I stayed with the std 990 rear wheel.  Could not source a DID with correct width.  The SE rear rim is narrower and you have to run 140 tyres.  Front with 1.85" DID works.

http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/repair-questions/4302788 (http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/repair-questions/4302788)

When I was riding on the N2 between Pongola and Hluhluwe in january I saw my tire pressure went up to 2.8bar up front and 3.6 on the rear wheel. The heat build up is not really the issue for me, but when the moisture heats up and then expands the pressure increases as well. I dont know if I am way off base here but I have heard that an over inflated tire can compromise grip.

But if I am wrong I would gladly accept advice.

With the 300 plastic bike I spend quite a lot of time in the mountains. Traction noticeably improved when I converted the wheels to the tubeless (tubliss) system. This was especially notable in the times it rained and traction became more of a problem. Why do you think track bikes go to light weight composite wheels; simply the lower reciprocating mass improves handling and the suspension can do a better job. I do not like the extra weight of an ultra-thick inner tube and my opinion is to stay away from inner tubes as much as possible unless it becomes a safety issue. Another example is the foot-up trail bikes. They run tubeless because every bit of traction is required.

Maybe I am going if the topic a bit but I will keep my 1190 stock wheels as long as they`re round. ;D

Just put a claim in with the insurance company, going to get another rim from RAD. Will
Ride with 2.5 bar to make sure no smileys occur.

Have they done anything to the 2014 rims ?

Well I have the 2014 and both rims got damage, I might not be the lightest or slowest rider but I am not that brave


I thought so, hell man. What other option does a man have. Ride around with this front wheel wobbling. Around at160kmh is not my idea of fun. And I also want to use my tpms so tube is out.

Excess is R500 so will see how the 2014 rim works

The only option I can think of to keep the standard rims would be fitting a tire with a very stiff sidewall, and keeping it on the recommended pressure even offroad. My damage occurred on the stock tires  running the recommended pressure. So I decided to never deflate them when going off road. I had the damage with the suspension in comfort setting, preload set to full.

I am not worried about the look of the smiley. My steering isn't so leke now with the smiley.

Need to get wheel balance I suppose. The after moering it with a rubber hammer I am going to see
If it will not lose air. If that does not work the I am going to throw some slime in
6k for a new front rim from Ktm is ridiculous

Just find out before you do that if the slime will affect the tire pressure monitoring system.

I am thinking of running my wheels with nitrogen to help keep the heat build up a bit lower on long distance rides.

Your wheels have 80% N in them already.  How is 20% more going to affect heat build up?  Tubes are a little more admin to change on the road.  But once you get comfortable doing it, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.  But that is just me....

When I was riding on the N2 between Pongola and Hluhluwe in january I saw my tire pressure went up to 2.8bar up front and 3.6 on the rear wheel. The heat build up is not really the issue for me, but when the moisture heats up and then expands the pressure increases as well. I dont know if I am way off base here but I have heard that an over inflated tire can compromise grip.

But if I am wrong I would gladly accept advice.

The problem is most probably that moisture has got into your tyres through an undessicated air line.  The remedy is to take the tyres off, dry the insides and rims thoroughly, and when you inflate, make sure it's from a high quality pump that includes a dessicator to ensure the air is moisture free.

Moisture inside tyres turns to vapor during a long run (as the tyres heat up) and can lead to tyres bursting due to the massive increase in "gas" pressure in the tyres.

I have the 2014 model, just went past 6600km. Lowered my tyre pressure to 2 bar front and 2.2 bar back for a bit of Lesotho's dirt mountain pass travel, and then the trouble started.
Picked up 3 smileys  on the front rim, nothing on the back. Had to nurse the bike to Mokhotlong with about 10 stops to pump tyres. Beat the smileys out with a claw hammer and continued the trip on to Sani Pass, had to do a bit more repairs at Himeville at the friendly guys from Yamaha, but made the trip back home with no more pressure loss.
The wheel is a little unbalanced at speed higher than 180km/h but has not lost any more pressure. I think the secret is to keep your tyre pressures above 2.4 bar.

After I replaced complete front wheel, I kept front pressure at 2.5bar.

No smileys, but the rim aint round anymore. Looks like a rugby ball. And its a struggle to keep the front rim balanced  >:D

Stock rim is soft, very soft  :'(

Just got two more smileys on the front wheel. Stock front tyre running at 3.2bar. Hit a small rock at around 100km/h and shortly afterward I had a flat.

Teah I might have to ask the insurance to get me aftermarket rims, they would probably be cheaper than KTM original?

I will try and get the insurance to buy new ktm rims and then buy back my old ones to use the hubs, then I might go for tubed offroad rims with knobbie's on to play with.

That doesn't really bother me.  I've been running a tubed 21" front for over two years and have not had it go flat (yet).  21" tubeless are quite rare and the only ones I can think of are this one and the HP2.  It's hard to ensure a good lasting seal on a rim that narrow.  As for the rear, when you go to a tube instead of tubeless, you have a MUCH bigger selection of tires to choose from, which I like.  17" rear has many more tubeless options but not 18".

Ok the insurance will pay for both front and rear rims to be replaced. And I get another set of stock tyres thrown in as well. I guess they like repairing bent rims  >:D

I am still thinking about going for aftermarket custom rims but I do not want to run a tube as I enjoy high speed riding too much.

Ek het my ou rims gevat. My Insurance was min gespin daaroor, hulle wou dit glad nie eers he nie.

So moenie dat KTM jou charge vir jou oues nie  >:D

Ja ek wou eintlik die hubs ge hou het, en aan hulle offroad 990 rims laat lace. Maar KTM gaan die hubs weer gebruik.

Hallo Manic
Weet nie of hierdie 'n hijak op die 1190 thread is nie, maar hier kom hy:

Ek het die naweek smileys op my F800GS voor en agter rim opgetel en wonder of die versekering sal uitbetaal:

By wie is jy verseker en hoe het jy dit reggekry dat hulle vir jou ander nie OEM wiele koop?
Title: Re: Post a pic of your rim.
Post by: Manic on August 05, 2014, 05:16:05 pm
Versekering vra of dit reggemaak kan word.
As die antwoord JA is, dan stuur hulle dit in vir repairs.
As Dealer se NEE, word dit vervang.

So hang af hoe groot is jou smiley, myne was onherstelbaar gewees.
