That is up for you to decide. Easier tire changes, less weight, less heat buildup.


Why are those two your only options? You could always buy some new 2010 smc tubeless wheels for much less than the ktmtwins setup and swap stuff over yourself.


While they may say there is an option for a caliper relocating bracket, last time I checked with them it was not being made. Nobody makes one for the Enduro fork bottoms, fortunately the 300mm rotor is pretty darn good.

I want to be able to switch between wheel sets easily. So I need the rotors and sprocket also. I am not gonna skimp on wheels for it so I just want to make sure I get some good ones, tubeless or not. The more expensive set from ktmtwins appears to be nameless so i'm a bit hesitant.

I have owned several bikes but they have all been dual sports so I have never ownes a bike with tubeless tires. I do know that they are a lot quicker and easier to put on. I worked at cyclegear for a while and changed alot of tires.

Has anyone put together a list of places and options where to buy a supermoto conversion set?

Sigh,,,,

The ones from KTMtwins are KTM wheels... with the rotors and the carrier and the sprocket....I like how people say they are too expensive without doing their homework...

Two Gapher Rotors plus the carrier plus the sprocket plus the wheels...One shipping charge...no tax...advrider discount.....

great deal.....

Gotcha. Their description says that they had them made but I guess that means they had them built. Guess I will have to continue saving and find something else for my bikes christmas present. Thanks for the info!

I just read the description on KTMtwins and nowhere does it say they are KTM wheels... so I'm not sure what 'homework' people are supposed to be doing.

yup, OEM ktm, standard on 2010smc. About 1200 just for the wheels.
Last time I chatted with them they had no caliper bracket for 320 rotor.

^^^Nice pic, I want to pull the trigger on these wheels! I can't find a better choice with the tubeless setup and the easy swap, what
size sprocket did you use? I was thinking a 42!!!

I just got wheels and tires from here: http://www.fasterusa.com/.
Hubs are Talon (cush on the rear) and rims are Excel. Got the hubs, wheels, Bridgestone tires (mount and balanced) and a Talon sprocket for $1820. Here is a pic of the finished product:

So... I have a set of pilot powers in the garage and a front pilot rd3. The powers have more of a supermoto curvature to them. Anyone think I should buy a rear pilot rd3 and go with them or should I go with the pilot powers? Just trying to decide which to sell.

The powers are cheaper but i've heard really good things about the road 3's. Never heard of anyone running them on a sm or 690 though.

*Nowwhat, what fender are you running in that pic?
