I will nex week end got to go back for work no and I am waiting for more parts.
The box is the smal one and the thought is that I can take it of and put a pasanger seat on ocg a rack.

The recon for the rebuild is to prepare the bike for an cros Africa trip 2011

Question Replacing rear wheel?

I am currently fitting front end from a 2001 KTM 640 enduro and got a cush drive rear wheel from the same bike in the deal.

Has anyone fitted a KTM wheel onto SR41?

I know anything can be made to fit and I know I will need to spin the wheel around but has anyone done this?

All advice gratefully received

Cheers
Simon

I helped a friend do this on a street bike some years ago.

It's all about (a) chain line and (b) wheel center-line.

You have to line up the sprockets....then make adjustments to be certain that the rear wheel is directly in back of the front. Or you could mount the old wheel (with the tire removed) and mark the swingarm with the wheel center-line. This would at least give you a rough idea of what changes were necessary.

On a spoked wheel, you can manipulate spoke lengths to vary the amount of "off-set" the wheel has from the hub center line. Or you can set the wheel center and then manipulate the sprocket to find the correct chain-line. This is usually the easier of the two.

Once you get these two parameters set, build spacers as necessary to maintain this in the swingarm. Then you get to find a way to secure the brake caliper and other fun things.

But......do you think the bearings will spin the other direction?

Ladder106, you kidding right?

Those are regular deep groove ball bearings, industrial standard. Direction does not matter. Ah, I know you pulling leg there

But what matters is way cush drive rubbers are made. On some bikes damping part that facing force towards is much chunkier than other part of each rubber. Don't know how it is on KTM.

Play It Loud, I think maestro Hessler had done it - I am sure I seen photo of DR with rear wheel that looked as if it came from KTM.

Many thanks Ladder106,

I'm thinking along the lines of finding centre line of wheel centering in swingarm and spacing sprocket and disk as necessary.

Friend of mine is a metal whisperer when it comes to all things metallic so machining spacers for sprockets disc and caliper hanger etc shouldnt be a problem.

Main reason for changing rear is to up it to 18" to give more tyre choice and secondly loose the extra weight.

Would love to go the Talon custom built wheel route but I'm building the BIG on a budget.

Good point bluesman, I will check cush drive rubbers and report back.

You just turn them around if they have a thicker side..

My Adventure and spares are not yet at my home,
other wise i coud take a look at the rear wheel and so..

Right but be careful. Due to frame design and other considerations, the center of the wheel may not fall in the exact center of the swingarm. That's why I suggested trying to find about where the standard wheel fits into the frame, make a reference mark and use this to match the new wheel.

B-man, I though you could only spin bearings backwards if you were south of the equator.....Corriolis force or something like that. Spinning them backwards in the norther hemisphere creats a magnetic field that sucks all the balls to one side and thows the bearing out of balance.

No......really

Ladder106, no, I think it is more complicated.
See, as we all know all spherical things on earth are not spherical because earth itself isn't and we have gravity.
So, because balls in bearings are not spherical but a bit off ball bearing always turn one direction much easier than other. Those balls in bearings made in location like Australia will be reflecting direction of gravity in Australia and if brought to US will not be working that well.
So, if you drive on right side of road you have to buy bearings made in UK and Australia, but if you ride on lefy you need to take those made in US or on Eurasia continent between Ural mountains and China border...


Goes for scientific explanation?

Not that easy, it depends on specific way cushion rubbers are made.
Some of them are 2 pieced connected by little piece of rubber - just cut and flip, yep, rubbers will be falling off 2 times more than usual when removing wheel.
Some bikes have them more solidly connected together - there is is big cutting and slicing that required to flip them over. I just do not remember at all how they look like in KTM 640 wheel. I think I only seen it once long time ago...
