What rear wheel will fit my Transalp?

Anyone know for sure if an NX650 or XR650L rear wheel and/or swingarm will mate up to a 1989-90 Transalp? Need a spare.

Neither of those will work, the only thing that will is an Africa Twin RD03/RD04wheel. I just did this myself, it converts it from drum to disc brake at the same time. You can use the TA swingarm or the AT swingarm.

That's no good. I might have to work on a 600r complete rear end swap.

BTW, any idea what the difference in the NX/650L vs the Transalp rear wheel is?

The swingarm is much wider on the TA at the axle and at the pivot bolt than the XR and NX. Those bikes have nothing in common with the TA.

The Africa Twin parts are a direct bolt on. I have detailed instructions on how I did it on www.transalp.org

If your just wanting a spare wheel, I have one I may part with.
