    Default KTM 85 can I upgrade to a 36 spoke hub?

    Been having a hard time finding a 17x2.5 32 spoke rim for my KTM 85. Does anyone know what hub with work with it that is a 36 spoke since they're easier to get rims for?

    I've tried searching but nothing useful came up.

    Thanks in advance!

    Found these, but I decided to run 3.5x17 front and back because I found some 32 spoke ones for uber cheap.

    These are the wheels I'm running, called Buchanan's spokes and told them what I had and they sent me the correct spokes. Unfortunately I order the wrong diameter so had to drill out the holes a little bigger on the rim so it cost a little more with labor

    Thanks for the info, are you upgrading brakes or staying stock. If upgrading, what all mods are you making?

    Forgot about that, I have a 450 front caliper that I'd like to use with a 320mm disk but I'm having trouble trying to find the correct one because my hub is a 4 bolt vs the 6 bolt on the bigger bikes.
    I've found some that I think I can use but they show generic picture of the product so I can't be sure
