950 SE Talon hub

Post by beddowsm » Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:24 am

Does anyone know if Talon made a front hub specifically for an SE?

Im having a few issues with my front wheel. The spindle used to go in with ease. Eventually it stopped being easy. Removing was difficult and I eventually damaged the threads. So new spindle bought. This soon went the same way. Spindle number 3. I stopped putting it back on the bike.

Spacers looked worn so ordered new ones from KTM . Only for them not to fit (and not cheap either!!!). I then realised the hub was a talon. no wonder the original KTM parts didn't fit. So bought myself a spare front original wheel from ebay just incase.

Contacted Talon and ordered replacement spacers. Only for them to arrive and not fit. Just called now and it looks like the hub is for a 690 rally. I asked if they did hubs for a 950 SE to which they didn't know the answer. They asked me to remove the front disc and look for any extra markings. and also measure the existing spacers.

Its driving me up the wall.

I do have a working wheel. I managed to get the old spacers working but they look pretty knackered. I also have a spare original front wheel and spacers so all isn't lost. I just want replacement spacers for the existing talon hub.

Nightmare!

could it be someone used all balls wheel bearings from a 950 on a talon 690 hub throwing everything out? Thinking out aloud as I know all balls are wider bearings, maybe you need all balls spacers???

For the rear is 950SE specific. Spoke to Gabe at Zen as was thinking about a nice set of talons he never mentioned they were not specific, if that makes sense....

Good luck keep us posted.

good thinking Wilso. Will keep that in mind if the Talon spacers fail.

Called Talon back up and they are sending me some new spacers. Fingers crossed they fit!

Forgot about this thread. Took a while but got there in the end.

Turned out the Talon hub required 450EXC spacers! Who knew! Took a while to get to the bottom. Talon were good and sent me a few different spacers until we got to the bottom of it.
