Fx tire size

Recommended Posts

The fx comes with 18" wheel. I have a spare rim set with 19" wheel. Don't feel like getting the spare rim set restrung with 18" rim and spokes. Any reason why I can't use the 19"? It fits my 2012. I assume the axle is the same diameter and there is no issue with clearance?

Rear axel on the FX is 22mm, the rear axel on the YZF is 25mm... You will need to make spacers...

07 YZ250F had a 22mm rear, 20mm front

09-2013 YZ450F became 25mm rear, 20mm front

10-2013 YZ250F became 25mm rear, 20mm front

2014/15 YZFs became 25mm rear, 22mm front

They changed the front wheel axle size too on the fx? Wtf for? I bought a set of brand new prowheelcanada rims for a 450 couple years ago that came with spacers. It included smaller spacers so maybe it would work. Thanks for the info.

Actually could you not just use the axle from my 2012 yz250f on the fx? Then the spacers would remain the same. Hmm thinking logically about that maybe the wheel bearing inside diameter would be larger but from memory I don't think they are wicked ticket so I seem to recall some space. Could be wrong. Will have to check.

At least the rear would fit axle wise. Any comments on tire fit in the swing arm? Im assuming same chain, same swing arm.

Would have to play with the front to see what I could get to work
