Does anyone know if front / rear wheels from an '01 YZ426 will fit on an '06 YZ450? They look the same, but I don't want to "test" it at 50 mph! :p

I am looking for an extra set of wheels, and I am hoping this will work without modification.

If the hubs are stock Yamaha, you will need 01 spacers for your 06. The 01 should have the front hub with the 4 ribs in the center, and your 06 should be smooth in the center. Your 06 hub is wider than the 01 hub. This is why you need the spacers. WD
