Differences of TE-610 & SM-610?

I have read everything I can find and still am not sure if it's possible to motard the TE-610...
Can someone please tell me if the triples are different on the SM610 and TE-610. From what I have read the two bikes could be different and I would like to add some wheels to the TE in the future if it's painless. TIA, Dan

Here's the complete parts listing for both bikes. Triples look to be the same part.

Here in the UK some dealers are offering SM wheelsets at an extra cost when you buy a TE-610 so yes you can.

Thanks guys, I looked over the parts list and your right the triples are the same but the fork, shock, and calipers are different. So could anyone tell me how much difference there will be between the brakes assuming thats the one thing not easily upgraded to moto trim? I won't be riding close to the limits of the bike so I don't think smaller rotor will be an issue for me but was told more stopping power = better, for road riding...TIA Dan

All you'll need to do is put a larger disc on the motard rim.
With the larger disc you'll get a bracket for the caliper which
is very easy to fit and remove. this will put the caliper at the right
distance from the hub for the larger disc.

It is a very easy mod. I did it on my old YZ400.

The rear disc will be fine as is.

You will want to put a smaller chain ring on the rear motard wheel
as well as the gearing (internal) is higher on the TC model.

You can change the front but this is a more fiddly job.

With the above it will be a very straight forward swap plus brake caliper bracket.

In 20mins you'll have the best of both worlds.

Thanks Ben, the new 06' TE's and SM's have the same internal gearing and the sprockets are also the same, at least from the online pdf from Husky's site...

How different are the form internals? They look like the same forks when the two bikes are side by side, but I'm assuming the valving is completely different for road use vs offroad.

The valving is different and the stroke on both shocks is different, shorter for SM.
