KX60 suspension-disc brake upgrade

can anyone confirm or deny whether the kx65 front end will fit on the kx60?

Last night I brought home a kx60 for a mini-motard project. IMO, the kx60 is too fast to run with the stock drum brakes, and I want disc brakes, which come stock on the 65s.

Howabout the rear end...will the kx65 swingarm bolt right up?

Anyone know?

you'll def. be needing a 12" wheel, we can't find any tires to fit the 14" with the forks being so close together..:BangHead: :BangHead:

do you know if the tt91's will fit? they are 100/90-12 (front) and 120/80-12 (rear). I was planning on going up to cycle gear to order fronts and rears after work...
