Wheel Swap

Hey guys! Quick question here....do any of you know if the stock wheel assembly off of a 2007 WR 450 will fit on a 2012/2013 WR 450? Please let me know, thanks!

If the 2007 wheel spacers are used, I don't see why not.

Enjoy!

Yes

both bikes use the '5ET' hub

Awesome! Thank you guys so much. Now I can buy a new bike and keep my old wheels! :ride:

Anyone know if older YZ450 wheels fit the 2012 WR450?

 

I think they would, but would like to be sure.

yes, but it will be 19" dia

All YZF450's use the 5ET hub, which will fit (as its the same hub thats used by the WR)

Thx! I figured they would. I almost bought a used YZ this morning,

 

luckily I remembered the diameter difference. Not a big deal,

 

but I ordered a new tire a few days ago.....

You can use a rear wheel from an '08 or older YZ450.....'09 and newer have a larger diameter axle

You can use a rear wheel from an '08 or older YZ450.....'09 and newer have a larger diameter axle

So you're saying the 09 YZs have larger axles than the 09 WRs?

'09 thru current YZ450f and 250f have a 25mm rear axle

 

'08 and earlier YZ450f and 250f have a 22mm rear axle

 

All WR and 2 stroke models have the 22mm rear axle   ('99 thru current)

These YZ Rear wheels fit the WR (but obviously will be 19" dia)

 

YZ125:-                     1999 - 2012
YZ250:-                     1999 - 2012
YZ250F (4 Stroke):-  2001 - 2008
YZ400F:-                   1998 - 1999
YZ426F:-                   2000 - 2002
YZ450F:-                   2003 - 2008
