EDIT "Rear hubs are all the same from 1992 to 2007 125 on up
The 125s and 250s got the right hub as of 1990 but the bigger bikes didn't use them till 1992."


KTM wheels FIT. I have had people asking me about this for quite some time now so I thought id throw this together.


First YES KTM wheels fit.


Rear hubs are all the same from 1990 to 2007 125 on up. Only difference is Cush drive or not and rim size. I now have 3 different KTM rear wheels that I run A 17” 18” and 19”. The 18” is from a 1995 LC4. The 19” is actually a tallen hub but its for a 2002 KTM 400. The 17 is from a 2004 4XX (don’t remember). I have take pics of all the different rear wheels on my bike to show. Notice that the 18” and 17” both have the cush drive hub. The spacers rotors and sprockets are all stock KTM. This is a direct bolt up fitment. Do note that the KTM rear rotor is the same size as a 400S/E 220mm.

Now the front setup that’s a bit harder. Not much but not a strait swap It requers custom spacers and a rotor adapter BUT KTM rotor. The Front KTM hubs were 20mm axel just like a DRZ but in 2003 they changed them to a 26mm axel. So if you get a Front hub that is a 20mm all you have to do is make spacers that line up the rotor with the caliper rufly the same as the stock drz spacers. If you get a 2003 + front hub you have to make spacers that convert it to a 20mm axel and line up the rotor with the caliper. I only have one KTM front wheel and it’s a 26mm setup. So I made some spacers to fit. I left the stock KTM spacers in the front wheel and just made spacers to fit in the spacers as you can see in the following shots.









17” 26mm axel hub.

As for rotor adapters I ride dirt 21/18 and SM 17s. I swap out wheels one or two times a week so I went with the same size rotor for my SM and dirt setup. The stock KTM rotor is 260mm and the MOTO MASTER off road oversized rotor is 260mm. So I got the Moto Master DRZ front rotor (TT store 1711-0172) and adapter (TT store 1701-0084) so my SM (KTM) and dirt (DRZ) front rotors are the same size 260mm. If you wont to go 310mm or 320mm just get a DRZ Rotor adapter and a KTM rotor and now the pics
O my front dirt rim is form a RM so no snail thing. I have a Trail Tech Vapor.

LOL in the end I don’t have any DRZ wheels just KTM and RM. Any way hope this helps someone.

Nicely done. :applause: Good pics also. It's good to know that we do have some options out there. Maybe this will let some of us cheepskates get some wheels at a better deal.

Thanks again for taking the time to post this thread.

HA! Don't you know that the cost of KTM wheels just went up at least 25%? :lol:

Watch ebay, now that we know they will fit, they'll be going for a premium like the DRZ wheels.

Also, bear in mind that KTM wheels come with 26mm and 20mm axles.

We need to buy wheels with the 20mm axle for the DRZ.

Being a newb, I must ask this : what is the advantage to using a KTM wheel/ wheelset? Price? quality? availability?

It's just another option for wheels. There's not much available in the used market for the DRZ take off wheels, and what is available on ebay is bid up pretty fast.

Did you read the whole thing? That was covered in the second post.





And to the Y go with KTM wheels its just another source of wheels that fit the DRZ. That’s all.

So next thing is for someone to find out how to fit KTM forks on the DRZ. What size are the KTM forks on what bikes???

It owuld be cool if you could get a set of KTM inverts to fit in a set of RM triples. You'd be set then.

This is a very timely post as I just put DRZ forks on a KTM. Used an RM wheel but would prefer to use the 03 up KTM wheel. You have done the engineering for me on the spacers!!!:bonk: :naughty:
