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.

Tube rims?

I will pass  :lol8:

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.

Donnerse stingy bliksems...

As hulle weer buig sal ek plan maak dat hulle die hubs ook ruil.

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?
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

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.
