Motard setup - need tips

I have a 2004 FE650 and I would like to get a motard setup as a quick change over. I know that many people in Australia use Honda CBR250R wheels and get spacers and disc adapters made up by local machine shops. I am lazy so I was hoping for something 'out of the box', at least as much as possible.
Are there any kits available anywhere or can I buy any of the bits from somewhere on line?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Motard setup - need tips

You shouldnt have any issues getting a set off a ktm, just find out what axle sizes you have and get a ktm wheel that has the same axle sizes, you also should be able to find/buy a front brake kit with an adapter for that easily online. I cant say i know what fits for sure, all i am saying is that it should be easy to find them with a little searching, kinda surpised nobody has just told you the answer yet tho, must be everybody sleeping in

I know the wheel conversion that you speak of but i beleive that is more for the older bikes like mine and itll take way more work than what you need to do to get tared wheels on your newer model........

Thanks. I've found a guy that's selling a set of wheels cheap and I may end up chasing up the spacers and brake and sprocket adapters separately.

Re: Motard setup - need tips

I have a FS that I bought new rims for and stuffed up because the spoke pattern didn't match the originals.
Just double check that there will be sufficient room from the calliper with the new rims ?
