Hi all,

I'm embarrased to say I hadn't posted on here in so long that my account got inactivated... :jawdrop:


I feel like I have reached the end of the internet trying to figure this out to no avail so hoping some of you guys can help me out.

I'm trying to make a front wheel from a 2014 yz450 fit onto my 2010 yz450. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it work. From what I can figure out, the OD AND the ID of the 14 bearing are bigger beacuse they put a bigger axle on the 14. I can't find a bearing that will suit both needs. If anyone has any experience on this or any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

The front axle should have 3 steps; the threaded end, the load bearing center shaft section, and the fat part that sits in the right side fork.  If the '14 axle does not fit the '10 fork, you can either have it modified to fit the fork without altering the midsection, or have a complete new axle made.
