Re: Brakecaliper adapter for 320mm disc FC600 BJ 97

I motarded an FE400 99 the other year and used a front wheel from a Husky with 4-bolt brakedisc (17mm front axle) which also fitted my later 01 550 with 20mm front axle after removing the spacers. The rear is standard Husa/KTM wheel and as brake caliper bracket I used a 4-5mm aluminium piece which fitted nice after grinding a few millimeters off the stock mountings. I have pics if you're interested.

Regards,

Dave

Well, can't speak for the old usd fork of the 95, but the WP 5060 Extreme fork would accomodate a Husky front wheel. But then most things are possible if you know someone at mechanical shop...

2.75 as a rear wheel? Doesn't sound like a good plan. That's like a 50cc tire you'll have to use then?

my berg have 18 x 2.15 right now I can mount 140/70 17 or even 150 with a 2.75.
may be it is good idea to mount taht 2.75 17 rear rim on the front and buy a 3.50 17 for the rear is taht possible to use rear rims on the front?
thanks

Marto that tire guide you have been posting is not correct....sorry but there is no way anyone is gonna put a 170 tire on a 4 " rim....I'd be surprised its even gonna bead up......let alone have enough tire patch... I'll dig around abit and find one I have referred to.....

Re: Brakecaliper adapter for 320mm disc FC600 BJ 97

ever thought of getting your hubs relaced, and buying rims and spokes only ??

This site will keep you busy until I find that dam chart

the tire guide you posted has basic general info...I'm just being overly anal.... just wanna make sure you don't waste your money....

Re: Brakecaliper adapter for 320mm disc FC600 BJ 97

What clearance do you have between the disc face & the fork leg?

I only today drew up my fabricated adapter to suit a Yamaha FZX250 wheel with 320mm diameter disc. This disc has an offset that puts its face 4mm off the fork leg. If your's has more clearance you could easily modify the design of my adapter to account for it. I'll have fabrication drawings ready to post in a couple of days if they are any use to you.

You can definitely fit a 165/55 tyre on a 4.5" rim. The profile looks OK and the side of the tyre only just kisses the chain. The 170 would probably shoehorn on.

Before going ahead with relacing, I posted thisabout a year ago about how the front wheel spoke pattern has changed over the models.
