tusk wheel swap help!

Recommended Posts

I purchased a set of tusk impact wheels from ebay (a reputable seller) for my 2001 yz250. HOWEVER. after installing tubliss and a brand new tire i go to install the wheel and BEHOLD!!!! the bearings on the new tusk wheel are not the correct size for the axle of the yz. I called RMATV and confirmed that there has not been a wheel compatable with an 01yz250 made........ frustrating considering the $ spent so far. looking at the images below... does anyone think/know of a solution? id prefer to swap out the bearings in the tusk wheels for ones that will work... instead of sending the new wheels back.

Looks like you need a 6004-RS 2RS bearing.

These are non standard.

I assume this number based upon a 12 mm wide bearing.

Looks like you got Tusk F rim/wheels. The 2001 250 2 stroke is the same as 2002, 3, 4, etc. The only diff is front spacers. Just replaced bearing is a 02 I purchased with an 01 front hub and spacers. Rears have been same for a while.

I got two sets of spacers with my wheels to work on pretty much all years YZ.

Yeah, I 'd have thought he'd have gotten the two sets, too. They normally ship that way.
