Please do. I would like to do the same.
Stanimal, here's what I found out.

The PO said the front was a plug and play except for needing a Duke brake disc.

He said the the rear needed the Duke spacers to fit properly. He recommended looking up the part numbers on KTM fiche to find what spacers are needed.

I decided to do just that, as much for my own knowledge should there be a problem or question.

I'm confused based on what he told me and what I found on the parts fiche for the 08 SMC and an 08 Duke. I think he may have gotten it backwards.

1. The front axles are the same part #(75009081000). The front wheel spacers SMC (75009012000) and Duke (78009012000) are different.
2. The rear axles part # were the same but the Duke now has a different (updated) part #. The spacers (right side and on either side of the cush drive) are the same for the SMC and the Duke. I believe my rim has the Duke cush drive, not the SMC.

So.... I'm a bit confused based on what he told me and what the fiche says. However, maybe it just works out as he said, based on width of the triples, rim, etc.

I plan on pulling the wheels off in a few weeks when I give the bike a thorough inspection. I can measure the spacers and send you the info. You can check those dimensions against your stock spacers to confirm whats needed. Regardless, it appears only a swap of spacers and a Duke front disc is needed get the job done.

btw- the above bike and graphics are sick!
My bike one year ago when I bought it:

As it sits today:


Nice bike Yoghurt. Has that exhaust been modified. I just bought a low mileage ( 9000 Km ) 2006 640 SM.
It has tiny but plugs in the end pipes and sounds like my granny's scooter.
:headshake
Sorry did not look properly, I now see that its aftermarket pipes.

How come your hand guards and levers point towards the floor so much?
I think it just looks like this because of the pic and because the handlebar is turned to the same side as the side stand. Look at this pic where the handlebar is straight



And i will leave this pic so you can see how it was when i bought it


I think it now looks waaaaay better :D
