Laugh just bought a '07 wr450

Put over 500km on my new to me wr450 since buying it last week.I absolutely LOVE this bike!!Takes me everywhere I wantr to go in the mountains & lets me ride on the pavement long enough to get to the seemingly unlimited forestry roads & single track trails in my area & does it WAAAY faster than any of the dualsport bikes I have owned in the past! This thing ROCKS!!!!!!

Finished the build

My 09 WR now looks like this , all equipment except the cush hub is as used by Yamaha Australia for the Australian Safari team bikes .










This is how it works out in the bush


Cheers .

PS. Running 15 - 47 gearing and I am very happy with the performance and speed .

will wheels from a 2003 WR450F swap to the NEW 2012 WR450F

Hey guys I couldn't find this info anywhere else. Anyone know if the wheels would swap from a 03 wr450f to a new 2012 model? Better yet, anyone with both an older gen WR450F have a 2012 that can swap wheels real quick and let me know what is needed if it can even be done? Thanks!

Check out the link

http://www.allballsracing.com/25-1252.html bearings

http://www.allballsracing.com/11-1081-1.html Spacers

This is the link for the all balls kits and they list the bearing and spacer kits to suit 03 and 12 as being the same bearing and from experience they make most of there wheels the same only the later yz450f and yz250f have a larger rear axel diameter.

My yz 426 has 09 wr cush wheels in it and I have lent my standard wr 18 inch rear to a mate with a 2011 yz 250 two stroke. They are all the same i think.

So I see from the link (http://www.allballsracing.com/25-1252.html bearings) that the rear wheel bearings are the same on a WR450F 03-12 (which is awesome, but I thought for sure that 09 wr's had the larger diameter rear axle like the yz's. Maybe I have been mistaken?)

But the 2nd link (http://www.allballsracing.com/11-1081-1.html Spacers) doesn't show that the spacers will work past 2011 (WR450F 03-11). The hubs I have are made by Radd Manufaturing if that makes a difference. Would anyone know since the bearings are the same I'm guessing axle size did not change in any of the WR450F generation changes, if all that is needed is the correct 2012 spacers to get the wheels to fit? If I swap and use the spacers from the stock wheels that come with the 2012 wr450 (hoping no changes to hubs, and brake/sprocket bolt patterns) as well as the sprocket and rotors should they work??

Thanks for the links they did help a lot! Just need that final clearification. May call Radd too, just to see if they have made hubs for the 2012 yet and can verify that the build is the same.

There going to fit buddy, take a punt I have a set of talons and I am looking to pick up a 2012 later in the year and I am going to put my wheels in it. dont over think it just get the bike they are great bikes. Disk and sprockets are the same I know this so its just the spacers they will fit straight in

GO FOR IT
