Anyone tried Rally Raid LC4 Rear Wheel Adaptor for KTM 690?

Hi!

I'm having trouble with Rally Raid LC4 Rear Wheel Adaptor. Every LC4 wheel I see has 20mm spindle diameter but on 690 I have 26mm spindle. It just doesn't fit!

Anyone solved this puzzle? :)

Maybe I should put 690s bearings and spacers inside LC4 wheel?

You have to remove all 20mm wheel spacers, put the new RR spacer on the brake disc side, and use the 690 cush drive sprocket carrier, then everything will fit properly.

Although getting one of that spacers was pain in the a%*&s I managed and you are right - it fits! Thank for the help!

Just did it on my 09 690 Enduro R. It's actually a KTM tubeless cush drive 5" supermoto wheel, with Rally Raid spacers, and 690 cush drive. They don't advertise it as LC4 or EXC or what I don't think. As far as I know they are both the same (except 690 SMC of course).

The wheel came with a 150 rear tire wish looks a bit small for the 690 (lots of space to the chain). I will try a 160 after a test ride or two.

I put on the stock 45 tooth sprocket to get started, anybody have any suggestions for what size sprocket to run on this conversion?

Front wheel goes on tomorrow night. So far so good.

I finished transmogrifying my KTM 690 Enduro into an SMC supermoto... I'm digging it.

150 is OEM for the SMC, so that is the right size. You might be able to fit some of the 160 tires in there but they're too big, basically.

Curious, every spec list I find on the net for the 690 SMC says it comes with a 160 rear...?

On my 2009 690 Enduro R, there is a full 1" clearance from my 150 tire to the swingarm on each side, and 1/2" clearance to the chain, which seems like a lot to me, I've typically had the chain close to rubbing the tire on all my other supermoto bikes (I've had many).

You sure 160 isn't the tire of choice?

Sorry- 150 is OEM for the Enduro. You may be right that the SMC is 160.

Yeah the SMC uses a 160 tire, plenty of clearance to the swing arm which is the same as the Enduro. Getting the wheel past the brake caliper without scratching the rim is a bit fiddly however....
