Change a 150r to a 150r expert

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to change a 150r to a 150rb/expert? I just picked up an 09 150r, I was unaware that they made to versions. Other then wheel size is there any other difference's between the 2? Is it possible to just put the bigger wheels and tires on the 150r? Would there be any clearance issue's with the forks and swingarm?

You must change the swing arm, brake line, and wheels.

Don't you have to upsize the front brake caliper & rotor?

You can reuse the braking system on the front as well as the back except for the brake line "IF" you change the swing arm. Now I have read other forums on this same issue and it can be done without changing the swingarm according to them but you will have little room for chain adjustment. Also either way you go you will also have to bump the rear sprocket up two teeth or so and resize the chain.

Thanks guys, I'm 40 years old and just bought it to something small while riding with my daughter. Rode it for the first time the other day and felt pretty good on it. I think i'll leave like it is for now.
