im in the workings of doing the same to my 2002 xt 600
i got a set of excel wheels of ebay they were from a dt the front has gon on
not probs at all in fact it looks identical to urs hub and all.

the prob im having is the rear its gonna require lots of spacers to move this this way and that that way plus an xt sprocket will not fit the hub

i was hoping u could do me a favour and tell me the spacing between the disc
an sprocket amount of spokes , internal swingarm width and if the rims r excel

hell off a lot to ask i no
but im thinking of getting a 660 rear hub from yam and then lacing my rim onto it

thanks
