T7 Wheel Kits

Recommended Posts

Another set of gold anodised Yamaha T7 Tenere wheels leaving today, but this time our customer chose the narrower EXCEL rim option (18"x2,50 & 21"x1,85) for more off-road bias, so it's possible to run narrower 140 rear tyres, and bib-mousse if needed.
We also supply these in the OEM rim width (18" x 4,25 & 21" x 2,15) with tubed or tubeless option, and the very popular "exchange" option, where customers swap their OEM wheels in for our new wheel sets, with refurbished OEM hubs (shotblasted, powder-coated, new bearings & seals).
All wheel kits are supplied with stronger, corrosion-proof stainless-steel "Bulldog" spokes for maximum strength & durability.
We fitted the new Kenda Big Block tyres, same as we have been testing on our own T7, for good off-road grip in the UK lanes our customer will be riding.

Is it possible to get the stock rim dimensions in gold colour, tubeless without exchange?

My new wheels !

 

I've got the OEM discs, all OEM bolts, OEM rear brake disc shim and ABS rings made by my good friend @Aleksandar13 ready to go for the big fit tomorrow/Saturday.

 

Stand by for pics and an off road ride report.

 

Thanks again to John and all the team at Rally Raid. Amazing customer service and John is a superstar.

Another Yamaha T7 customer opting for our “exchange” wheel service, choosing to swap their OEM black wheels for gold anodised SM-Pro wheels with Bartubeless option, no need to buy another set of wheels, just send your old ones in and a new set shipped out same day !!!
A big cost saving and tubes or tubeless option availability when ordering.

Those are gorgeous! really want to do this, though living in Canada, sending parts back and forth will get costly 😞

Those actual wheels are going to Canada tomorrow, and then our customer is shipping his OEM wheels back by return, using the boxes we shipped the new wheels to return the OEM wheels back to us for recycling

Oh man I want a 18 x 2.5 rear Excel in a bad way.

I've got one from John at Rally Raid.

 

It's much better off road, especially with decent rubber. It just digs in and grips, rather than rolls and feels a bit vague like a big fat tyre does if you know what I mean. Being as it's so narrow like a proper off road, a 140 rear now has a very steep profile so it's so much narrower. Just what you want for off road.

 

I spent some money on a second set of wheels. Expensive, but I love this bike so much I now have 2 bikes in one and only 10 to 15 mins to swap them over.

 

Cheers

Richard

Picked up the bike with the new wheels installed and I haven't been able to stop looking at it!

Thanks a lot Rally Raid, very happy with my decision.

 

Now to sort out shipping the old wheels!

I have had my T7 OEM rear wheel converted to Bartubeless in preparation for some road trips next year, and am fitting a new-style Continental TKC70 Rocks to test. It should last longer, and offer more stability on-road than my normal off-road biased tyres (which are fitted to a narrower 18"x2,50 rear wheel that I keep for trail riding here in the UK).
It should also perform better than the old TKC70 rear, which was more road biased, this more aggressive pattern will be better for the drier european gravel roads I expect to be on, and being tubeless it should be quicker, and simpler, to repair a puncture, no need to remove the rear wheel.

Another 2 sets of our popular "exchange" Yamaha T7 wheel kits sold recently, both with Bartubeless conversion to run tubeless tyres. So, as a consequence, we have 2 sets of OEM wheels to cut out the spokes, remove the OEM rims, then extract the bearings & seals before powder coating the OEM hubs, ready for new bearings & seals, then laced to Gold alloy rims, both with tubeless type "bump", we use HD (4,5mm diameter)stainless-steel spokes, so no corrosion or strength problems.

Hey ktmmitch, can you provide pricing on Blue Excel rims - Stock front size, 3.00 inch wide rear? I talked to Woody's in Denver, Colorado yesterday, and he doesn't have stock of the Blue ones, and isn't likely to get any blue ones until the new year. Price is $275 USD front and $300 USD Rear from them.

I think I have Yamaha disease...

I’m not an expert and am curious, why do you have to cut the oem spokes? Is it just faster than taking it apart?

Definitely quicker cutting the oem spokes with a 4" angle grinder fitted with a 1mm cutting disc, we don't re-use the oem spokes or rims, so it's no big deal.

could someone cut there own rims off and just send the hubs to you for new spokes and rims ,it would save a lot on the postage

No reason why not
