No it does not. Woody uses a RAD KTM 950/990 hub with some small adaptions to make it work in the F800GS application.

I really like the TKCs on this bike in the dirt, but i just burn through the damn things on pavement. I'm hoping the Distancias will last longer than the TKCs. They corner great and after watching Idle run them on his Husky they handle the dirt fairly well too.
I have been riding my WR lots lately (just got back from Utah), so I haven't really thrashed on the dirt set of wheels. All in all, if you got the cash burning a hole in your pocket, the second set of wheels is like having a different bike.
Too wheels : The toolbox is awesome! Keep making cool stuff.
Yep. TKCs are my fave but I fry em on pavement. Rally lasts a little longer and it's pretty good in the dirt. I just put a fresh set of Heidi's on so we'll see how those do. Seems like I'm burnin $$$ all over the place on moto but my Husky 310 is getting the attention right now. I pulled into St George today.

Utah is awesome. I'm still sorting through my video so i can put a ride report together. I think Moab might become an annual trip for me. Have fun.
