The TE has different forks to the smr though with different spacing I think
The te has the 48mm forks and therefor a very different setup aka no mods are needed.
Any one ever check with Woodys Wheel Works?
Woody has been at the MC game for a long time and he and his crew have extensive knowledge in these areas. I'm pretty sure the KTM and BMW RAD hubs are things he designed and made then sold to them.........
So am I correct in thinking that when my alpinas get here for the smr I won't be able to run a beringer disc as they don't come with the 5mm offset on the disc that I need?
This disc is listed for the smr/sms from 09 which had the 5mm offset disc, I would assume that would work?
i dont know the Beringer setup but on my org caliber i had to get new wheel spacer, new disk spacer and an offset disk to get it to work!!
sounds a real pain, what disc did you go for?
He had a motomaster flame rotor at one stage. Londin, have you thought about getting the spacer and rotor from a '09/10 SMR to see how they bolt up?
No but I like the idea!
I had this issue a number of years back when I ordered rims and a set of hubs (RADD) the rear fit, but the front was a pain. I think when the aftermarket builds these things, they use the dirt models for info as the tech support was poor. I ended up having to locate an non current new replacement from a SM supplier to get the front to fit properly (can't remember whom anymore, but they have since shut down the business as I got one of the last remaining stock).
Beringer now do a 320mm ductile iron rotor so I ordered one of those to sort out the rotor issue. Just need a 10mm rotor spacer and the wheel should fit properly.
Thinking of a bolt on spacer where the space bolts to the original rotor holes and then the spacer has its own threaded holes for the rotor to bolt to. That way the spacer isn't just sandwiched between the hub and the rotor like a giant washer.
I'll try to take some photos over the weekend of my setup
