950 A Front end differences...

Anyone know the difference between a 950 Adventure and 950 SE front end? I bought a used set of wheels for a SE and wanted to convert them for an Adventure. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Valving and springs the SE uses .60 the ADV uses a.52 the SE also has slight different steering geometry .
If you have aADV get your self some SE springs world of difference ,

Wheels SE single rotor Adv twin rotor ,

You can convert the ADV to single rotor cheaply but way more expensive to convert SE to twin rotor

I already have it converted to single rotor. Do you know if the front axle/forks are the same? I know it's a different spring rate. What about rear end? Are the rear wheels and swing arm the same?

The rear is a direct replacement . . . Front axle diameter is the same.

Hmmmm. Well I think the set of wheels I got aren't for an SE then. The front is a smaller axle. Rear has different spacers. Otherwise I think it will work. Looks like ill be calling RAD wheels tomorrow.

Just use spacers from advenventure on both ends and it will work.

The axles and fork lugs are not the same. Super Enduros share similar axle lugs with the smaller KTMs (150 to 690) with a machined groove for the speedo pickup. Adventures have there own fork lugs to accommodate the larger axle.
Adventures come stock with .48kg for springs, Super Enduros come with .59kg. Valving spec's between the two are drastically different.
Can you post some pictures of the wheels, it's fairly easy to spot the differences.

As KaaJa, you just need the right wheel spacers for your model, then they will fit. The bearings and hubs are the same except for the second disc flange on the front.

Looks like a nice set of RAD Mfg wheels for a Super Enduro. I'm viewing these pictures on an iPhone, but pretty sure they fit the SE.
Nice wheels!

Right on. Thanks. So is there a way to adapt them for my adventure? Maybe different bearings/center spacer?

I'd give RAD a call, they will be able to break it down for you. I would think you could swap the spacer's for it to work but never tried. Best of luck to you!
