Will an '02 YZ125 rear wheel fit on my '08 YZ450 if I use the spacers from the 450? They appear to be the same otherwise. :busted:

Also, are there any potential failing issues running the 125 rear on the 450? I was thinking of keeping it in the pits as an emergency backup.

Thanks -

The downside is that the 125/250F rim is 1.85" wide as opposed to the correct 2.15 wide for the 250/450F. A 110/90x19 works OK, but I doubt that a 120 would work out too well.

Thanks a ton! I was mostly concerned with the 125 to 450 change and if it would "hold up".
I appreciate it.
