en ek het gedog die aftermarket tubeliss rims van die 990 was kak.  Hulle het ten minste nie gebuig nie, net die cush drive en sprocket gestrip. :peepwall:

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.

Was at the LDBA ride last weekend. Most of the 1190's had front rim problems... Lots of hammering and tubes involved.
If in doubt, flat out.

Was in contact with JP on ADV his comments as follows.  Tried to get hold of Alfie KTM (e-mailed and phoned no success)

   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

RAD informed me that they have ordered 20 kits to convert the front rims to 21/1.85 DID rims for the off-road fanatics amongst us _ I have also asked them to confirm that a 990 rim fits on the rear.  Then just some Mitas E-10 and I am OK to go (will keep my "soft" rims for road riding and do complete wheels for offroad riding  ;)

i,m assuming the problem is with the R's 21 inch front rim and not with the standard Adventure's 19 incher?

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 think if my tyre pressure was lower, I might have had a problem  :o
