Yamaha Making my BLASTER wider

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that you can make the BLASTER wider by fliping the wheels over. Would I be able to do this with my 2006 BLASTER and would it be the front, rear, or both??? Thanks. :moon:

Flipping the front wheels on a '03 up will not work because the valve stem will hit the brake caliper. Wider A-arms are pricey but worth it. I've got ASR arms and tie rods on mine. 3" wider and 1" forward. I don't think flipping the rear wheels makes a difference. I got a banshee axle off ebay for $15 and it's a straight swap on Blasters with hydraulic brakes ('03 and newer). It's about 3.5" wider than the Blaster axle.

Yep just tried this this weekend on an 03.

The valve stems hit the brake calipers. I plan to buy new tires in a week so I will have them drill for new stems on the other side and plug the old ones.

The difference was very significant. I measured roughly 4.5-5" wider total.
