'08 450 Questions

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm picking up my new '08 YZ450f tomorrow. Has anyone switched their wheels from the '07 to the '08? Just want to know if everything is the same (wheel spacing, chain ring and rotor bolt paterns). Thanks!

Everything will work fine, except the front wheel spacers. You will need to use the '08 brake side spacer for the brake side and the right hand side after market spacer from the old set up. The reason is due to the bottom bracket on the right fork tube being moved inboard a bit.

When installed, the axle will recess into the bracket about 5 mm, but I ran it like this all last year on my '07 250F without any problems.
