How did you handle the brake rotor / caliper issue with the SM wheel set?

After I looked at this pic, I realized how horrible the Leo stickers look. They just peel right off those end caps.
Very nice! Did you just the TE brake rotors or swap our to a SMS caliper and rotor, etc? Looks like a great option for street riding.

I just ordered the Q4 from that link this morning. So much for not spending money on the bike right away...

Just put a TE rotor on the SM wheel. Needed to drill out the mounting holes a little -- 11/32" was perfect. The SM wheel takes a larger bolt. I used stainless countersunk screws instead of the cap screws that the SM uses.

Other than that, it just mounts right up. Axle from the TE; axle spacer from the TE. Plug-n-play.

Anyway all you got to do is gring them down a little bid as they are a touch too wide to fit in the bracket. They look great and are heck of allot wider than the stockers.
BTW Husaberg foot pegs are the same as all the late model KTM bikes

Huge improvement and work awesome
Thanks
Sethro

I found this out as well. I ended up buying IMS pro pegs for the late Husaberg, and KTM models. Very little grind work to make them fit! I absolutely hated the stock pegs.

Diablo's solution is totally acceptable (TE rotor on the SM wheels), as long as you don't mind giving up some braking power.
I don't mind the little rotor with knobbies, but I am more comfortable with a bigger rotor with the sticky tires.

On my TE (610), I use a caliper relocation bracket with the SM wheels. Right now I am using one from motostrano, but there are others out there, and I have also made my own for previous bikes (need access to a mill or CNC though).

These bikes are a BLAST with the smaller wheels and sticky rubber on them!

Have you compared the larger rotor and relocation bracket braking performance to the OEM SM caliper/rotor?


I've been looking at the Motostano full SM kit for $1219 which includes everything you could want for an easy swap.

Warp 9 Supermoto Wheels 17x3.50 front mated with a 17x4.25 rear
Wheels are complete with all spacers, seals and bearings
Warp 9 Stainless Steel Wave Brake 320MM Rotor
Warp 9 Anodized Brake Caliper Relocator
Warp 9 Rear Steel Rotor
Warp 9 7075 T6 Aluminum Sprocket
Rear Steel Vented Rotor
NAK Seals
OEM Bearings
Zinc Plated Nyloc Hardware
All required mounting hardware, screws, bolts and nuts
Light weight non-oring chain, for better clearance (NEW!)
CHOICE of either Continental ContiForce Supermoto Tires or AVON Distanzia Tires (both are DOT road oriented tires) or Michelin Pilot Powers
Acerbis Supermoto Fender
Set of heavy duty Bridgestone or Michelin Supermoto Tubes with valve stems and Rim Strips

True, the TE rotor will fade quicker than the larger SM rotor on hard, extended braking. But, I don't ride that hard where I'm braking hard repeatedly.

A relocator bracket and 320 rotor kit runs about $200 from a few suppliers. Dan at Motoxotica can order one.

Or, you can get the Motostrano kit. I found used OEM wheels. Otherwise, I would have gotten that kit.

My friend just purchased one and I think my other friend is placing his order now.

FMF site indicates retail of $650 for this system.

Are you sure you're getting two mufflers on that order?

It was a local dealer that shared this info with me. Not all that earth shattering nor would it keep me from buying one (which I am considering) but still a little weird that they would abandon that market segment after just releasing a major upgrade to the model. It seems like all the redesign and tooling costs were completed so why not just keep pumping them our for a few more years? Nothing bigger than the TE511 will be offered... at least until the TE900 shows up. Same guy said that will a couple years off...

Um, have you heard of a company called BMW?

Xchallenge. Radically new design, and everybody decided to 'wait and see' after about 9 months folks decided they were pretty good and BMW yanked them because first year sales weren't good.


g450x RADICALLY new design in a completely new market segment. BMW pulled the plug almost instantly. Like they thought all those KTM guys were just waiting for them to appear at the track?

It'll be a shame, if it's true, that BMW is going to pull the plug on the TE630 after this year. There's nothing equivalent to it in the marketplace, out of the crate. The XRL, DR and KLR 650's don't hold a candle to it's dirt prowess, and the TE is just as capable as those 3 on the tarmac. Oh well, I've got a soft spot in my heart for orphans.

Turning back to muffler topics...

I picked up my 630 with the dual Leo slipons already on it. I don't care about torque and power results from dynos or any of that stuff. The bike is plenty powerful with the p/u kit installed.

What I want are pipes that run cooler than the cat-enclosing stockers, but are just as quiet. The Leos are pretty barky and started to bug me.

So, I put the stockers on the bike and I like it A LOT better. Smoother quieter sound, especially on acceleration and deceleration. In fact, at first I thought something was wrong with the motor cause I was hearing some kind of clatter. It's the valves, of course, and I couldn't hear them before.

But, the stock pipes are really, really hot right at that big steel heat shield.

So...what to do? Do I find some way to quiet down the Leos (ideas...?) or knock the cats out of the stock cans to eliminate the heat? But...that might make the stock cans louder.
