Supermoto wheels on a 990 Adventure

Hi
I think I know the answer to this but I'm asking anyway.
Are there any road wheels that will fit or come close to fitting the 990Adv,with little machining?
I have just put some Aprilia RS125 wheels in my 300 EXC which was quite easy . Although it is mental to ride !

CJ sells some, Woodys might lace up a set, I sourced some parts, ended up with a new rim on the front and new spokes rest was 2nd hand and laced up a set.

Some wheels from a smaller bike might be possible but only single disc?

Some will start to argue that it will change the geometry of the bike to much with 17/17 but not sure how many of those that have actually tried a bike with that setup.

Mine runs great with them, corners great, feels a little nervous compared to a bigger front at really high speeds but no problems.

950/990 SM, SMR, SD wheels will fit.

The rear complete with 180 tyre goes straight in.

The front needs adapters. I think I still have the mock up adapters.



I fitted a set in my 990 but decided the front fender looked stupid so I left on my custom built 17 rear 19 front using Aprilia Caponord rims.

..... no, the Aprilia hubs will not adapt to KTM....

For comparison, with my discount, new 950 SM wheels would cost $1060. You would then need a cush drive assembly, $220 and front rotor adaptors. Those RAD wheels are a good deal!!

I just bought them. :) With that said anyone need a stock 21/18 set up for their ADV?!

BTW I have a 990 Adv, I'm assuming by using my original disks on this 950 rims set up things will bolt right in. Should I be looking for a spacer, or be aware of any other problems I might have? And last thing, has anyone had any problems with a 180 rear tire on an ADV? Sorry for slightly hijacking this thread, but I figure its all relevant.

Thank you all for your replies .
I think a high mudguard mod would look better with the small front wheel.
The 990SM wheels look to be the easy option but second hand prices are a bit high.
I have looked at the Alpina wheels for £1k, a lot of money . They do a 19/17 set which may be a bit better handling.
I think I'll put them on the wish list as I'm after alu panniers too since one of my Gobis has started leaking.

19/17 is a better over-all wheel package, but not better handling wheels. Period.

Nice wheels, we are looking for a set for our SE, 17/17 so looking at our options at the mo.

Any good advice from those in the know would be welcomed as to better kits to get etc.
