Question klr250 front wheel

Need to replace the front wheel on my 89 KLR250, due to some damage.
Will a 650 or 600 front wheel work??
The rotor, speedo drive, axle/etc on my old wheel are OK.

You just want to lace a new rim on to your existing hub?

The 650 is 36 spokes and, of course, a 21" rim.

The wheel bearing spacer is the same 250/650 #92027-1683. So the axle diameter and fork width should be the same.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Thanks to you both!!
I was hoping that a 650 or 600 wheel would just bolt up "if I used the or disc rotor". If not then I will find a rim and relace.
Can find a complete wheel for a lot less than buying a rim and then paying for trueing.
