450R Front Wheel on the X

Recommended Posts

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...
