Are you installing the factory wide wheel from Yamaha?
Here are the instructions.
No, it's a stock 18x6J rim that is widened to 18x8J, what I don't know is if the Yamaha wide wheel have special needs for a different bearing? or do I also need the "wide wheel bearing kit" ( 2S3-F53S2-V0-00 )
+Thanks for the Install Manual!
with the 240mm rear would you have to remove the final drive every time you change out a tire?
There goes my desire to fit a wide rear.
I think the parts are the same just saves you trying to remove and transfer the stuff over.
I wonder... called my local Yamaha dealer and they gave me 2 different prices on stock bearing vs. wide wheel bearing (almost +50%)
Id PM Sean to be sure but Id think if yours is a stock rim that was just widened, the bearings needed would be the stock ones since the hub etc is still the OEM one not the WW Kit. If you were using the Yam Wide wheel kit then you would use the wide kit bearing. Again, Im just guessing and dont know for sure but I dont see any reason why you would need the other bearing kit if you are using the OEM wheel. Ask Sean what he uses.
I agree with you (and hope) it should be sufficient with stock bearings!
I also have a coupler of Big Dogs ... can you point me to your 'fuel bladder' solution..? Than ks
