950 SE wheel on 990 adventure

I was wondering if anyone has swapped a set of 950 super enduro wheels on to their 950/990 adventure. Any additional parts needed? I Cross-referenced the parts manuals and the spindles have different part numbers. Any information would be appreciated.

I've been running SE wheels on my 950 ADV for quite a while now. They work just fine. You will just need to swap your wheel spacers over as they are different on the two bikes.

The SE has a single disc hub and uses a 26mm spindle. I think the wheel spacers will swap out so you can make it 30mm, but you will still need a single caliper conversion.

Rears the same, front is only one disk. I laced a SE rim to my front hub. Swapped the rear rim too. They rock.. and don't bend when they hit them.

I confirm the rear is the same, pay attention at the rear disk, It doesn't work with adv 950 model, SE disk is floating

Why does it not work? As long as the thickness is the same it shouldn't make any difference.

It does work. You have to use the 950A spacers though.
(nothing to do with the disc - more to do with differences in thickness of the calliper mount - SE and 990 have thinner mounts)

Curious why you would want to do that ... most go the other way and put SE rims on their ADV

You may have read this wrong. He's asking if you can do what you said.

I did the opposite, I had a set of woodies excels built for my '08 990 adv. wanted to swap the "good" wheel setup to my SE. called woodies, all I needed was a new set of spacers for the front wheel, which woodies sold me very cheep, $15 i think, there is a left and right side to them, they are not the same. the rear is all good, nothing special. I had to remove 1 front rotor and the abs rings. So it sounds like you need the correct front wheel spacers, call woodies.

Also there is going to be a difference between the spacers on a 950 and a 990 ADV.
