Hey guys,
I was wondering if anyone knew the difference in the 2006 & 2007 wheels on a 450? Sunline's new complete assembly only backdate to 07 on the big bore, but to 06 on the small bore 250F.

Thanks!! I coulda swore that I read that somewhere, but the tech on the phone at SunLine told me they wouldn't work.

It's important to note that the front brake on the '07+ 250F and '08+ 450 are different, but the rotor is the same. There's virtually no difference at all the I know of between the '06-'07 450's as far as the wheels go.

99-08 all interchange.

The 125/250f use a 1.85 rear wheel, vs the 250/400f/426f/450f 2.15 rear wheel

From OEM the 02 model is the first year of the wider front hub and larger diameter rear rotor.

The difference in the rear rotor 2001 to 2002 was 5mm (240 vs. 245). This can be a problem, but it usually isn't.
