Supermoto front end?

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone knows any details about the 950 Supermoto front end? Specifically if the supermoto and Adventure setups are the same? I know the SM uses a 17" wheel and the Adventure uses a 21" wheel but can you put a 21" wheel on the SM? I believe these are WP 48mm USD shock assemblies with 11.8" of travel so I think they are the same as the Adventure...right? What about the brake setup I think the Adventures and Super Enduros both use 300mm twins right? What about the Supermoto? I would not think they would be different but who knows. As usual any and all insight is welcome, thanks!
Tim

Depends on which model of Adv you are looking at.

The brakes on the 990SMT were twin 330mm (approx) with Brembo radial 4 pot calipers and completely different to the twin 330mm (approx) and Brembo standard two pots on the 950 Adv.

The fork ends are very different giving very different geometry (trail etc) and the spring rates and damping are very different too.


Not saying it can't be done but it won't be plug and play

The forks are shorter on the SM! If you insert a 19" or 21" wheel you get a problem with the oil reservoir! It could happen that the wheel touches the reservoir when the fork is full compressed! The swing arm is shorter too on the SM compared to the Adventure or the superenduro!
By the way the brake disc are 305 mm on the SM, only the 990 Super Duke had 320 mm diameter!

In addition to the issues with clearance identified above, the discs are further apart on the SM to allow the 4 piston calipers to clear the wheel. If you try putting a conventionally laced 21" wheel with spacers behind the discs into SM forks the calipers will hit the spokes.
