WR426 - WR450 front end and rear end swap

1 post in this topic

I have a 2002 WR426 that I spent a lot of money and time on for the suspension and wheels to make a great supermoto. Now I got a 2005 WR450 with the e-start!

Can I swap the front ends? I think they have different forks but if the stem and triples fit into the neck the same I should be able to just swap everything over I assume? Anyone know about this before I tear them down and go for it? The microfiche seems to show that the bearings for the stems are the same so I need to know if the stems will fit and are the same length and diameter.

Also, Are the shocks and swingarms the same? I had my rear shock lowered and revalved. I want to use that too obviously.
