XR600 wheels fit a XR650R?

Can you put XR600 wheels striaght onto a XR650R without mods? Any really easy mods to make it happen? My buddy has a 600 and I want to see if I can use his wheels for backup at a race, and the two bikes are not in the same country yet....

I found a post about the front wheel but nothing about the rear...

Thanks in advance!

No the rear axles and spacing front and rear are differant all you need is to goto a machine shop and get some new spacers milled that will let you swap.

It sounds harder than it really is. 100.00 should be more than enough to get it done.

i'm pretty sure the rear will not work, axle size on 650r is larger. bearing inner dia.and outter dia. are bigger than 600r,650l. had a 650l with 17" wheels. had to buy 650r hubs and relace,when i got a 650r :D
