Bicycle Mechanics - What would be considered too great a difference in spoke tension, drive/non-drive
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

Rebuilding a Mavic Open Pro rim, Ultegra hub, 32 butted spokes and wondered what you consider too excessive a difference in spoke tension between a drive and non-drive side spokes on a rear wheel? In order to get the rim aligned so dish is similar on both sides (don't have a dishing tool, must simply turn over wheel in the Park truing stand). As always, thank you for your input.

Your determinant is the drive side tension WHEN dished.
Ignore the non-drive. Aim for about as get as close as you can to 110 kgf.
When using the flip method to dish - rotate the axle - note the extent left and right THEN
...flip the wheel over and rotate the axle again noting the extent left and right.
Any difference indicates more dish work is needed.

I don't really worry about the tension on the NDS as long as the DS is up to par. the NDS "is what it is".
