I need a new rear rim for my 450 and saw one on ebay that came off a yz 250 2 stroke. Will that fit on my 450 f 2006.

I'm pretty sure that YZ250/250f/400/426/450 from '99 on have the same rear wheel. Same thing with the front.

Normally I would make you look this up yourself, but since your ground hog predicted an early spring this morning, the answer is YES.

According to the Thumpertalk parts diagram, the YZ250 and the YZ450F share the same rear hub from 1999 - 2006. I am pretty sure 2007 works as well, but it is not up yet.

Double check the rear wheel spacers. IIRC, they're different between '03 and '06. There's another set for earlier bikes, like the '01. Otherwise, the rear hus are the same, and the front wheel/axle/spacers interchange directly.

Also check the rear rim width. The 450 should have a 2.15 rim. I believe the 250 2-stroke does as well, but the 125 and 250F use a 1.85.

Very Funny re: the groundhog. Shorter winter means more riding right??

Thanks for the replies, very helpful.
