450R Front Wheel on the X

From what I've read here, to run the front R wheel on the X I will need to use the R axle and spacers correct? Is there a specific year R wheel I need to use?

I'm going to buy another set of wheels and just figured I'd get the R front wheel and not mess with the spacer/odo eliminator. Seems kinda odd after typing that lol. Maybe I shouldn't get the R wheel..

You are correct on the R axle.

The benefit of R wheels is they are much more plentiful on the open market...

yup, you are correct.  I did the same thing.  everything lined up 100%.  piece of cake.

 

fwiw I bought tusk wheels from rocky mountain atv.  great value.

Thank you all for the input!  Lucati, I read that post but missed the the year of the R that are compatable for the swap. Thanks again!

 

So, 02' - 08' 450R Wheel with axle and spacer.

i think i ordered an 05 axle.  the spacers came with my wheels.

 

when you get your wheels installed put pic for us to check it out.  :)

450x axle + 2 rotor side 450x spacers (one on each side obviously) + 450r front hub = success
