I have a 98 KTM 300 EXC with I believe the 17mm axles.

Is there any chance I can get my hands on a set of these spacers??

Been looking all over the place

Still available?

Does anyone know of a source for more of these?

I think I also need a set. I bought a set of wheels on eBay from a 1996 KTM 300 EXC For my 2010 KTM 530 Guessing it would work. The back wheel works perfect with the 2010 axle but the front wheel axle on the 96 is much smaller. The right side and the left side diameters are different on both axles. I measure with a tape measure in inches then converted to millimeters. So these are very rough dimensions ( need to borrow a micrometer). The 2010 is 25.5mm +/- on one side and the other side 28.5mm +/- and the 1996 is 16mm+/- on one side and the other is 17.5mm+/-. I definitely need some type of kit. I seen the kit for 20 mm to 26 mm. The picture looks like exactly what I need but the measurements are slightly off and are they different from left to right. Any help would be appreciated. Tomorrow I'm going to measure both axles with a micrometer.

The 96 wheel has a 17mm axle, the 2010 a 26mm.

You are going to need a custom axle to fit these in your forks and not a wheel spacer kit. Nobody makes it AFAIK.

I don't know what afaik means but I do know a solid custom axle won't fit because I need bigger ends on my 17mm axle to fit the 26mm forks. A custom axle will never slide thru. The reduction kit KTM sells seems perfect except for the diameters. 20mm to 26mm instead of 17mm to 26mm. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions to mount the 1996 wheel to the 2010 forks. Like maybe a 20 mm axle and bearing change then the reduction kit. Or is the hub too small to receive the 20 mm bearings. Any information aside from buying a new hub will be needed and appreciated.
Thanks, Francis

Sell the 17mm front wheel (~75-80$ usually without rotor) and buy a 26mm front wheel ~$150
That will be your cheapest/easiest/safest solution.


For info, rear wheels are the same from early 90's till today, just the 690/9x0 have different one. Cush-nocush is the only difference between LC4 (except SXC) and enduro/motocross version.
