HAAN "Factory Rally Spec Wheel Set"
Ok so what is the Haan Factory Rally Wheel Set. This wheel set is quite simply the strongest combo possible for serious Offroad use. Perfect for the purpose of building a Rally bike from a enduro Single cylinder range so as to simply have a great lightweight Adventure Bike. Ideal for protecting the Hard facing on the gearbox and smoothing out the ride. For the Twin Cylinder owners the Rally Spec Wheel sets are generally narrower than OEM and standard up to offroad use far superior to OEM. We start with a HAAN cush drive rear hub and then lace that to the Excel Takasako Rim with the best spokes made from Haan. Sounds simple but why buy them from Dirtbike Pty Ltd.
Dirtbike Pty Ltd is also owned by myself Glenn Hoffmann which was resposible for the GHR Honda Outright victories at Finke / Australian Safari / Condo 750 / Hattah / Australian Offroad Championships / Four Day and Aussie Supermoto Titles , GHR Honda had many rental bikes also at these events and two successful campaigns at Dakar using what I call the Rally wheels at the Desert Events.
For the KTM we use a 21" front size and 18" rear size Exactly like the Factory Rally KTM Bikes of Toby and Sam.If you own a WR 450 it is the exact same wheels / hubs / spokes as fitted to the works bikes. This is the ultimate set up should you want to use tyres more suited to offroad use and mousse, you can of course use traditional tyres and Heavy Duty tubes if you like also no problem.
The advantage of the Rally Rim is it is much more reliable than even a normal excel purchased from other vendors. 300,000km with riders like Grabbo and the Smith boys have taught us what combo works best and no rider has ever suffered a wheel failure on our Rally Wheels and no they are not A 60's. You are welcome to phone and I will discuss the difference in person.
The original front brake disc can be fitted from your existing wheels (or you can go onto our search by bike) you can then purchase the nesessary disc front and rear along with which tooth sprocket / rear disc. Some people simply sell their original wheels and put the money towards the Rally set.
Other Rally wheel mods can include grease nipples kit which allow you to inject mousse gel into the rear wheel and tyre externally. Another GHR first. This allows you to extend the life of the tyre and mousse considerably. GHR Hondas have logged over 300,000 km on these rims with mousse and never suffered a failed mousse or Rim that was unrideable. The KTM Factory Rally Twin cylinder race bikes of Meoni and Sala back in the day used these sizes of rims so they are proven on a 200kg dirt bike and of course are perfect for the lighter EXC. Michelin make three different rear mousse in 18" and Excell alone make 5 different 18" rims that other vendors may try to sell you. Only one of the mousse is suitable for long distance racing or trailriding and then matched to the correct rim size and crown. YES excel have different crowns in this size which make fitting tyres and mousse more difficult if you get the wrong combo. On top of that you then need to run the correct tyre to match the mousse and rim.
With the correct rear rim size and crown matched to the correct tyre and Mousse GHR has never suffered a rear wheel failure or mousse failure in a event which has caused a DNF for either a lead rider or customer. In fact Gary Gray from Cobar won a competition with ADB to ride a GHR Honda XR 650 on Safari. He Completed the entire event 4,500km on one rear tyre and Mousse in 12th Outright. Never changed , fact!!
