690 Enduro vs. 690 SM wheel/brake swap

Recommended Posts

Do you guys know if the 690 Enduro wheels fit on a 690SM? I am trying to go from a 17/17 setup to a 21/19 setup. Maybe one of you guys did the conversion that way...

Not sure if the SM axle with all spacers will fit, also not sure about the brake caliper and rotor...

No personal experience, but I highly doubt the caliper will clear the spokes on the 21". The Enduro has just a 2 pot, so the inside is slim, even though it's about 10mm closer to the axle...

I've got a 19/17 tubeless setup from Woody's for my SMC, but looking to sell them...

I have understood from older posts that it's relatively easy to go from the Enduro to SM configuration.

My bike came with SM wheels, brakes, lines and lever.

Conversely, I've understood that it's difficult to mod the SM to Enduro wheels. The search function might be your best friend.

Good luck and let us know what you find......

If you are talking about the SM with the petrol tank above the motor, then I have successfully fitted a 19" wheel to the front and a 17" knobby to the rear.

The 18" rear was just a little too big for clearance and the 21" front wouldn't clear the brake caliper.

The 19" front still required spacing the disc from the hub by a few mm with washers to offset the front wheel by the same margin in order for the spokes to clear the caliper...a 21" would be impossible with the spoke angles.

The rear fitted right in no problems, that is with a 17" Dunlop 606 fitted to a 17" x 3.50" front motard rim. Same axles and spacers for memory (I've since sold the bike)

Spacers on the front wheels are different between the SM and the enduros, but are interchangeable.

The bike was a hoot to ride on reasonable dirt road but was never gonna be an Enduro without changing the forks and rear shock so I sold it when an Enduro R came my way.

Yep - it's quite a hassle/not realistic to try to fit the front wheels from an Enduro to the SM or SMC. The forks are spaced differently (wider on the SMC and SM), and the caliper mount is in a spot that makes the caliper it too close to the spokes.

You should have no/little issue cross-fitting the rear. The Enduro and SMC are identical with regards to the swingarm, rear brake and axle

      What are these? Big heavy 550- 600 pound road bikes with dirt tires and an upright position?
      That seems to be them.
      To me an "adventure bike" is one that you travel on remote roads which aren't developed.
      If you're not able to pick it up when you drop it ( and you should daily ), then it's not an adventure.
      Try picking up a 600-700 pound bike by yourself on a loose steep road....ain't gonna happen.
      So it beats me why these bike manufacturers don't take a DR,KLR,XR and give them a 6 speed tranny, and a modern suspension. These are the real adventure bikes...fun,light and you can power slide and get her loose without worrying about being crushed when you drop. The only one that's up to speed is the KTM. Instead, these are stuck in the 1980's tech department.
      Thoughts?

      Let's face it, TT is a pretty good resource for dual sport riders, but not so much for riders of large adventure bikes. Late last year, we starting working on building a community dedicated to large adventure bike riders and we'd like to invite you to join us. You can find us at http://www.xladv.com
       
      The community is still a baby, but it seems to be steadily growing and some good ride reports are already out there. While it's based around discussion forums, we did bring over our Virtual Garage and Reviews System. We also have a community photo gallery where you can share your adventures and browse though the shots of others.
       
      So, if riding large adventure bikes is one of your passions, we'd love to have you.
