Are ALL Yamaha wheels compatible with each other?

YZ400F/250F - YZ450F/250F?

Re: Yamaha Wheel Compatibility (slyde)

I believe so. I think, that unlike KTM, Yamaha has retained the same axle / bearing ID for quite a # of years now. I'd say if you're trying to swap parts with something older than '95 you should do some in-depth research (which might not be a bad idea anyway).

Re: Yamaha Wheel Compatibility (Jacka$$)

No! There are some changes to Yamaha wheels in recent years that you might need to be aware of depending on what you're looking at (like buyng wheels from e-bay)

Rear axle diameter and rear brake disc size changed for some models in 1999 (I think), all of them went to the larger diameter in 2000.


Front rotor diameter changed for some models in 2002, all in 2003.

WR models (with the odometer) have a different hub width, so the spacers need to be changed when installing a YZ hub.

I know this stuff because I bought a rear wheel/swingarm assembly for my 2000 YZ 426 and found the e-bay seller was wrong about what year bike the parts were from... none of it was interchangeable. Much belly-aching and crying ensued.
