RE: Husaberg - KTM Wheel Interchange?

Hey there,
i have a 02 Fc550 and a 06 KTM250SXF, i do know that the rear axle is the same OD. At this time I have not compared all the parts to what can be exchanged, but looks like there are afew parts that are the same. I will see if the rear/front can be exchanged.

RE: Husaberg - KTM Wheel Interchange?

Please let me know your findings . I just bought a KTM rear wheel for my 02 fc 550 chassis and the wheel is incorrect . It is approximately 1/2 inch to narrow between sprocket and brake disc mounting surfaces .
Spending too much money and time trying to figure what fits these bikes .
very few used parts available .Probably one bikes worth of parts very soon . -- FED-UP in N.E.

here is the skinny
00-02 KTM /Husaberg front are the same
03-07KTM/Husaberg front are the same
there are some subtle differences for instance 00 Husaberg spokes are not the same as
00 KTM spokes.
Husaberg came with excel rims where as KTM enduro did not
the front hub is the same for the model years
in the rear 00-02 has smaller hub where as 03-07 has larger hub but the axle diameter is
the same
I have 01 husaberg FC rear wheel and a 03 KTM front wheel and they bolted right up
to my 04 and 07 husaberg and I had KTM front and rear wheels bolted up to my
00 husaberg and with front adapter kit you can fit 00-02 front wheel to a 03-07 WP fork
or 03-07 front wheel to a 00-02 fork

Thanks for the info . By larger and smaller rear hubs do you mean width , diameter or both ?
Cheers, Ryan

yet again that HAS to go in 'the doc'!!!!

do you actually breath in and out when you type? or do you just hold your breath and "get it out?"

FRONT WHEEL
00-02 KTM /Husaberg front are the same.
03-07KTM/Husaberg front are the same.
there are some subtle differences, for instance '00 Husaberg spokes are not the same as '00 KTM spokes.
the front hub is the same for all the model years.

REAR WHEEL
the ' 00-'02 has a smaller hub whereas 03-07 has larger hub but the axle diameter's are the same.


"I have an '01 husaberg FC rear wheel and a 03 KTM front wheel and they bolted right up to my '04 and '07 husaberg and I had a KTM front and rear wheels bolted up to my '00 husaberg.

with a front adapter kit you can fi t an '00-'02 front wheel to a '03-'07 WP fork or '03-'07 front wheel to a '00-'02 fork."

Husaberg came with excel rims where as KTM enduro did not. This is because Husaberg are superior bikes and use better equipment. (i wrote that bit!)

Taffy, I just keep posting jibberish untill I can get you to research my dillema for me . I thought you would have figured that out by now. However my problem is that I bought a used KTM rear wheel and the hub is to narrow for my 02 Berg chassis .

I don't think there is any "kit" which allows the use of the newer 26mm hub to be adapted to the earlier 20mm axle.

The factory adapter kit from KTM is a simple spacer arrangement that allows the old axle/wheel to be mounted up to the new '03 and up forks.

To mount the new to old, you have to custom machine an exact copy of a '03 and up spacer with an ID to match the '00-'02 spacer.

I hold my breath

the only difference between two hubs is the area between L side and R side is ~50mm
on the smaller hub 00-02 and the measurement 03-07 is ~65mm
sprocket / brake rotor bolt pattern and offset are the same it is direct bolt on from
00 thru 07 maybe you are missing spacer ? or maybe wheel from ?? take a picture
post it that way someone could spot whats up

Taffy
still holding my breath

I checked with KTM dealer, the kit adapting 03-07 front wheel 26mm to 00-02 fork 20mm has been discontinued but the kit to adapt 00-02 front wheel 20mm to 03-07 fork 26mm still is available #SXS03540400
