  3. XR 600 wheel interchangability

    XR
    evening all, please can anyone who has the knowledge let me know what other XR rear wheels fit a 1996 XR 600? I'm guessing that 250 and 400s with a disc rear end will fit, but that a 650 (as they take a wider tyre) won't? Many thanks to anyone who can help! cheers Jon
