retro fit rear rim from 2008yz450 to 2009

6 posts in this topic

Need to find a bearing kit that will allow me to use a spare rear rim from my 2006 yz450 on a 2009 yz450. The 2009 uses a larger diameter axle bolt and it appears to have a different hub so just jetting bearings from a 2009 won't work.

anyone done one?

Shuby,

Do you have a bearing supply house near you? I'm thinking you could take your hubs and axles in and they should have a bearing that will fit the O.D. (outside diamter) for your hub and I.D. (inside diamter) so it fits your axle and you should be good.

Gray,

Any chance of a bearing/drives place making the bearing or would the cost outweigh the cost of just buying a new hub?

Shuby,

Have you looked on ebay or craigslist or a like source for a used hub rather than buying new? Might save you a few bucks and the headache of trying to retrofit bearings to the other hub.

There is not a practical way to do this as far as I know.

The only structurally sound way to address this that I can think of is to make up a set of steel sleeves with a 25mm O.D. and a 22mm I.D., and press fit them into a pair of axle blocks to be used with the undersized axle. Use of a good grade of steel is critical, since the walls of the sleeve will only be 1.5mm (.059").
