Quick Question

Recommended Posts

Quick questions for the gurus. Would a 19" rim off a 1999 yz250 fit my 1989 yz250wr? I currently have a 18" rim on it, but I know the WR from 1989 came with a 19" from the factory but would one that new fit my old ass bike?  Also how much would I have to change to make a gas tank from the 1999 fit my 1989

 

Thanks

Going to say the fuel cell will be your biggest hurdle. 

Rim only should work on 36 hole. Double check Excel for compatibility, but pretty sure 36 hole will line up with new spokes. Complete wheel will not work if memory serves me old brain right.

Yer ol' brain be workin' fine, Gary. Rear axle (and bearing) size changed in 1999. Went from 20mm to 22mm (I think, this is where my brain goes fuzzy).

There is a thread on this somewhere.
