Motard wheels & tyres

Hi guys,

I want to ride my 04 Wrf 450 on the road but don't want to mess up my mx tyres as I ride trail normaly.

What I need to know is what is the best and most economical way of doing this i.e will the wheels fit from another Yamaha and what is the best size to fit.

Once I get them can't wait to take her on the road.

Look forward to your replies.

Thanks Paul :thumbsup:

I built my wheels ..bascially bought stuff from ebay(hubs) and found a greeat deal on the hoops on supermoto junkie. You will also need to buy a chain and sprocket kit as well. I am having a blast on mine. Be warned however, it takes some patience and quite bit of fine tuning to make it work right....

supermotojunkie.com has tons of info on this

anyone in australia??

I've been toying with doing the same thing. Is the Bare Bones kit "good enough" or is the roadrunner worth the extra $$?

Looking at a set of wheels on e-bay for the bike.

But I have been told it will wear things on the bike a lot quicker i.e chain,sprockets,tyres etc,etc, as there is no cush drive in the rear wheel. Did find a site on the internet based in Oz that does kits for our type of bikes.Try this site:

My only doubt about doing this is keeping my licence ( got a few points to many ).

are you gonne go with or without cush drive paul? that site is perfect by the way?

If it was me, I would go WITHOUT it.

I have dual sported both my 06 and 08 for over 15K miles and I have not had any issues. When on the street, I make sure to use the clutch and bang the crap out of the tranny :thumbsup:
