The sizes above are a general guide only for enduro tyres, always check the manufacturer recommendations before fitting any tyres. Here is a tyre rim size chart pdf Rim Size pdf

Dakar and Sertao Tyres

There was discussion of what tyres were available from manufacturers for the Dakar. The list here covers the standard tyre diameter and sizes. It has some basic info on studs. The list is a good one to build on.

The Don Coyote definitve tyre list, E and O E as always folks.
Heavy Duty Tubes

The tubes sold as "heavy Duty" are variable in both the thickness of the tube and the materials used to the point it is very difficult to compare brands. The only thing which can be said is to check specifications and choose carefully.

650GS Wheels

The standard wheels on the F650GS models were all spoked wheels with the G650GS introducing 19" mag wheels

Wheels are interchangeable between all of the models, F / G / Sertao / Husky Terra Wheel Part Numbers

The G650X rear wheel, hub, sprocket carrier, axle and cush drive is different to the 650GS models.

The Husqvarna TR650 models have a 17" rear wheel on the ABS variants and an 18" rear wheel on non ABS machines, the hub, sprocket carrier and cush drive is the same as the 650GS models.
