supermoto to enduro, just wheels??

Hi
I have an 03 FS650E and would like to do some green laning/off roading and wondered if it was possble to put enduro wheels on my bike?
Is my suspension and brakes different to the enduro version?

Thank you all
Ian

I know the disc rotors and front calliper are different but there's nothing stopping you from using a motard rotor on an enduro wheel. I think the rear shock is a little different too.

the suspension is set very hard for enduro, the front guard too small. the brake discs and calipers are too powerful but you'll find you can green lane for a day without touching them so you'll be fine there.

you'll also need totaly different gearing. try and get a 15T to put on the front for the day.

i would try it in the next fortnight before we get the mud n puddles back and then you haven't phuqed your bike up.

otherwise it's not really a good idea.

Thanks guys,
Do any of you know where I can get the enduro wheels that will fit? Which ones do I need?

Feels like my local dealer is just telling me one thing one minute and something else the next. 6 months ago when I was looking for an enduro they said I couldn't change mine due to suspension and brakes being different. Now they're saying the suspension is the same and it's just a case of swapping wheels over!

Anyone wanna swap my moto for an enduro??
