Wider 640 rim in a 501 swingarm
« on: April 18, 2021, 04:33:53 pm »
This is a cross post from the KTM  thread..

In my search for a cush hub I've found a KTM 640 rear wheel (I was expecting only the hub).
Has anyone run the complete wheel from a 640?
The rim is slightly wider although I don't think by much. I can't check exact sizes as it's not with me at the moment.
Any issues with not being able to run knobblies with swingarm clearances?

I don't forsee any other downside to the wider rim.
Thanks
