Hi everyone

trying to make a conversion of my 640 supermoto to use on greenlanes.
read tons of topics on this, but still few questions:

thinking of buying forks/wheels/brakes from EXC 2003+. that should allow switching between setups quickly, but I think issue will be with the clamp, as EXC forks are close together, and spindle and spacers I think won't fit, any suggestions, ideas? should I abandon the idea?

thanks all

I just ride my supermoto offroad on Maxxis Cutslicks. Avoid wet grass slopes. Ive done most of mid Wales lanes on it.
I did have 2 sets of wheels, but that 'its only an hour' to swap over, is always an hour you don't have or can't be arsed with.
If you want a compromise fit TKC80 or better still heidenau K73 wets

thanks for your experience, I used to own KTM 625 SMC and putting Shinko 705 wasn't good, it ruined experience on the tarmac and wasn't good enough on mud/sand, not happy to compromise, I prefer to find an hour to swap.

do you have something similar to my bike? what setup did you use? was it just wheels swap?

CCM R30, so straight wheel swap, plus different caliper bracket, front sprocket, chain/brakes if youre picky
In the end a fitted an oversize disc to the 21" front wheel to save the bracket swap and I just used same pads and broke 'em in witha few 50-30mph braking pulls over a mile.

Then I got a compromise chain length and sprockets for on/offroad, so i kept same front sprocket and ran same chain. Also had to run a 150/70x17" rear as opposed to 150/60x17" to help the gearing compromise.

After a year I bought another enduro bike.
2 bikes is the answer, even if the enduro bike is a cheap nail
