 Post subject: DIY OEM Rear Wheel Hub cut-out for "FATTY"
PostPosted: Mon Feb 02, 2009 6:12 pm 
Okay you all fatty lovers who are wisely-stingy enough not to spend as much as I did :lol: here's a thought on your project since this hubs are getting a bit challenging to purchase. See these Sym/Kymco rear hubs are not being used for current production any longer so the demand is low therefore stock also follows. I'm in the wait to see if Kymco have their version of this hub on the their shelves then I will share the part # but for now my version for those who are using the ITP ATV Steel Wheel 10x8 @ 3+5et 4/140 will be to make use of the OEM Rear Wheel as a hub. No pics as I am not doing this route but here's the proposed steps. Probably someone can pose pictures later.

Cut-out the hub from the OEM wheel. You can then clean up the cut by grinding it just make sure to mark around it to determine where you can weld up a new mounting plate or directly have the ITP wheel welded on it and just plug the existing holes. Remember this route will cost a bit more than just simply getting a hub but if you know someone this will probably be worth your time and effort. I say if you can cut it out clean and just bring the wheel and hub to a shop, they might do it cheap for you. You can then just grind off the weld or polish it out by a Dremel. Now if you're using other type of wheels then creating a new mounting plate will be the better route.

Anyone else have a better idea? Good luck!!!
