YZ 09 Wheels fit

6 posts in this topic

Here's the story - want to get a spare 18" wheel for the YZ. 2008 and below part numbers are different (I see there is an extra bearing in the 2009+ wheel) - does the earlier wheels fit the 2009?

The '09 uses a 25mm axle. Earlier wheels back to '99 use a 22mm axle. No bearings exist to convert the '99-'08 hubs to 25mm. Won't fit.

Aftermarket hubs such as Talons are another matter, however.

Appreciate the help- called dealers and they couldn't tell me!

WOW that is very surprising. That is an easy one. Who were you ringing ? Honda dealers ???

Not to me. The people who answer the phones, even if you actually get the service department, are rarely anyone who would have any such information.

I have a 08 rear hub on my 2009 yz450f. The work was done by the previous owner. It was not easy to adapt. You have to machine the hub put new bearing etc. A lot of work to fit
