or 5" rear, but you have to be careful with tyre choice to avoid chain rub.

Hi sorry to jump on your thread! I'm looking for similair, for a 2006 exc 450, gaz will that front disc fit the standard exc caliper? Also how much life left in the Tyres?

Sorry for the dumb questions I'm new to this, but those wheels are erotic!

Those wheels dont have a front disc fitted. All you need do is fit a standard KTM disc and they will slot straight in. Should be able to get a good front disc for £25.

Thanks, I'll check the bank situation!

Would any 17' sportsbike wheels fit? I have a set of R1 wheels but presumed the rear would be too wide?

Been there, spend lots of money on buying wheels and fooking about. I have been doing SM conversions on KTM enduro bikes since 2002.

The easiest wheels are from 250cc and less ;)
