WP Extreme 50 berg vs ktm

Hi all,

does anybody know if forks from fe600 and 640Adv (wp extreme) use same tubes?
I need to replace one tube in my husaberg fork (pitting) but I can only find parts for ktm which I know was 30mm shorter (900 vs 930)
Ktm tube is 698mm long, anybody knows how long is Berg tube?

Many thanks

just go ahead and buy it. EVERYTHING is surmountable. I believe KTM only used that fork for one year on one model right? 1994 or 1996?

I have foud out meanwhile that 2 versions (at least) of WP Extreme were used, one with 668mm tube (overall lenght 900mm) and one with 698 tube (o.l. 930)
Ktm used the longest one on LC4 640 Enduro and I have been lucky to find one used leg with broken caliper mount and tube in good order for few quids that I have bought from germany.
Shorter version was used on LC4 640 Adventure
So it seems I can fix this at a reasonable cost, a brand new tube is like 500€ from KTM!!

Hi again, I finally fitted husaberg yokes with DR stem and I am now approaching wheel and brake.

First problem: the wheel axle I got with the forks seems short, see picture. When inserted from the right leg there is a 3-4cm gap on the left leg and the bolt cannot be installed

Can anybody tell me what should be the lenght of the axle? Forks are from 1998 FE600 (or they should at least...)
I got fork, yokes and axle from the same vendor on ebay, it seems weird that the axle is incorrect...?

Second problem: got a front wheel and caliper from a 2000 KTM LC4 Adv (chosen because of 300mm disc) but I miss spacers and most of all I discovered that it is not the caliper bracket to cope with the larger disc but it is the fork foot to be different...


Is there any relocation bracket for this fork to install the larger disc? I know there are for KTMs

Thanks!
