I am interested in getting a spare front wheel setup to switch from street to dirt tires. Does anyone know if the 90's XR600Rs had the same front wheel as my XR650L? What about the speedometer drive?

The 650L has more spokes and a larger brake disk. I believe the speedo drive and axle are the same however. I don't think the 600 disk will mount to the 650L hub.

I'm not a big help, but the spokes for a 600 are shorter than the 650's. Not sure whats different, the rim or hub? Probably the hub, I'd guess. I'd think that you would be able to switch complete wheels assemblies though, as Thumpdup said, the axles and speedo drive seem to be the same.
