what is needed to fit a vstrom 650 wheel?

I was wondering what do you need to do to fit a wee 650 wheel to the versys.

Not the 1000, but the 650 wheel. I just had an idea when looking at the new 650 adventure. tubeless spoked wheels on my V. I can get them easy from the dealer, and probably a little cheaper than getting the custom built laced sets after currency conversion.

kojack - look thru the "jdrocks" build threads on this forum as well as ADVrider. He has used V-strom wheels (1000 I believe), and details what needs to be done to make 'em work on the Vs.

Here's the ADVrider thread:

Yeah, he got me the answer over there. I have to stick to the original plan of woodys/rad wheels. The 650 wheels are too small to enlarge for the bigger bearing needed!
