Anybody using the Warp 9 " Forged Supermoto Mags " ? If so, got any pics? Considering pulling the trigger, but I would like some first hand experience feedback.

Thanks!!! :2_thumbsup:

Just do it! I paid 1700 for my Excels with Rad hubs, and a Warp9 sprocket carrier.

OP probably means the cast/forged wheels, not spoked ones...

Haven't seen any posts on the Warp 9 Tubeless mags. They do not give those away.... but they look pretty cool. Nice you can order quite a few different colors for the hub portion and the rim/spokes. :good:

Agreed! I was informing him about the hefty price for my spoked sumos. If the Warp9 forged wheel was out I would have bought them instead for the same price.

Yeah, they are big $$$, but they look sweet, have a lot of color options, and are a *bolt-on affair. Problem is I haven't seen a single DR650 USING them. But I can't imagine they would be available if there wasn't enough demand for them??? So somebody has to have purchased a set???

The wheel is the same for all bikes. The bolt on center hubs are what makes it bike specific. Cash is tight for most I'm sure. If I could get a fair price for my sumo wheels these would be on my DR for sure.

Pulling the trigger on the forged for my sumo' set up in a few weeks. Well, at least the rear initially, to replace my spoked sumo. After some rear flats in the mountains, 150 miles from home, tubed rear flats really really suck. Yes, I have a center stand for my sumo ride, but nothing is easier than a tubeless gooey wormy flat repair thing and a mega CO2 cartridge blast. Five minutes later, viola! Not even time for a mountain lion to get a good nose on my whereabouts . .. altho my loud swearing and general bad attitude is probably acting like a mountain lion GPS. :pardon: Solo night time repairs are spooky.

Personally, ever since I saw 'Predator' with Arnold Schwarz', the dense forest at night became full of evil critters, and it gives me the willies to turn my back on it.

I was hoping to score a 19" front, but it isn't available. Hmmmmm, may try to research that for the front.

Yeah, it would be nice if they offered the front wheel in 19" That would certainly be what I'd want on my 790 sumo machine. :s_yes
