Is it much more complicated than just getting a couple 18/21 wheels and finding correct spacers?

Any information would be excellent.
(I am not buying anything new)

With a spacer from Rally Raid you can run a 640 rear wheel...I have one on the rear of my 690 right now.



You can get nice wheels at a competitive price brand new from RAD Wheels

Woodies will make you a set of wheels too..they are just as good as the RAD stuff but will cost you a little more.



Also check the flea market and ebay as wheels come up on there.

Bought me a new shiny tail light, but the turn signals I ordered from SAR were on back order and the KTM replacements (warranty) wont be here for at least 2 weeks.

The problem I need cleared up: The new tail light works properly, plugs in fine (the damaged one only pulled the wires out of the housing itself) BUT the brake light does not come on. Not sure if it is due to me not having the turn signals installed to complete a circuit ?? OR is there a fuse that popped that I am not seeing ??
Just a simple check, is the bulb alright? new undamaged etc... Is the bulb in correctly? It has been some time since I had a bulb back there, went to LED.

Other than making more wheels available, is there a reason/benefit to using a 640 wheel?

No, just another option..sometimes you can find the 640 wheels on ebay complete for a lot less.

Can you use the front wheel from an EXC on the 690? Thanks

I retract my previous statement. We at the NSA did in fact evesdrop on your phone records.

Was remembering that the EXC wheels did not work on the 690 for some reason.

+1, except that you don't even need to swap the spacers as long as you are using it on a 690 E/R.

If you look around you might find them a little cheaper than what KTM Twins sells them for.

Well, I am using wheel bearings/seals/spacers from an EXC and the front rotors are interchangeable (as far as bolting to the hub) sooo... the only notable differences will be the stock 690 rim is 1.85" wide while the EXC rim is 1.6" wide and the EXC hubs are polished I believe. I'd put money on it that they are a direct swap.

The 690 rotor thickness is different, but I have switched front wheels between my 300XC and 690e to get a DOT tire on the front when getting each bike inspected.

Again, any 26mm EXC wheel will bolt straight on.

Same 4mm thickness, but 300mm diameter on the 690 E/R instead of 260mm on the EXC.
