    Hi

    I´m looking into use some 690 wheels on my 950. Are there any good threads on this. The shareability within the LC8 platform...ktm family what ever.

    ?!

    I have a 990 and a 701.
    Sprocket carrier are interchangeable, but rear hub although looking similar, it's a couple of cm narrower on the 701/690 bikes.
    Front wheels I didn't investigate.

    @alongat seems to have some info. I'm curious as well. I picked up a set of wheels that were originally on a 1190 to put on my SE. I am pretty sure the rear should bolt on but the front I assume will take some extra work to make it fit (bearings, spacers, etc?)..

    690 / 701 hub “should” work on the front of a 950/990 but always use the spacers that belong to the bike rather than ones from the wheels. For example, the 950/990 Adv front hub will work on a super enduro but you have to use the super enduro spacers for the correct axle diameter.

    Rear 1090/1190/1290 hubs will work on the 950/990 bikes (with the respective bike’s wheel spacers) but the front are completely off and not compatible unless you want to mess around with brake disc spacers, etc.

    Rear hubs from 690/701 and 950/990 bikes are not compatible.

    Which is perfect. Though am i asking to much if it could visualized on a grid type system with 690 E, 790 Adv/S, 950/990 Adv/S/SE/SM/SD, 1000+ Adv/S/SA...

    I remember (that's a big dis-claimer) that the 690/701 front hub is the same as the dirt bikes and not the same as the 950/990.

    So, three front hubs. Dirt bike/690/701, 950/990 (SE same with one disk), and 1x90 with wider disk mounts and JAP spoke pattern. BTW, Woodies has disk brake spacers that convert 950/990 front hubs to 1x90.

    There are three rear hub types. Dirt bike rigid/640 Adv cush, 690/701 cush, and 950/990/1x90 cush.

    Also, if you make a spread sheet, note the spoke pattern too. Like Left/Right-Jap/Euro. They are all 36 count.

    690/701 front hub is not the same as the dirt bikes. You can actually use a 450/525 front hub on a super enduro...
