Hi do any of you guru types know of another shaft drive Yamaha rear wheel that is spoked and would be a direct swap for the OEM version?

'a direct swap for the OEM version of what? '

If you're speaking of the VMax, there never-was a spoked version wheel on a stock bike. The original Kerker/Dynojet bike had a custom set of spoked wheels, probably made by Buchanan. I've seen one-other set, it was on a bike here in south Florida and I believe Captain Kyle bought the bike, just to-get those wheels.

If you have a VMax sporting a set of spoked wheels, you have a very-rare aftermarket accessory.

Maybe a rephrase would clarify?
I am looking at a spoked wheel conversion for one of my V-Maxes and was wondering if any of the other Yamaha shaft drive models with spoked wheels would fit like the vstar 1100. Before i seek prices to get some made.

Cheers, they seem to be a different size.
I noticed a couple of suzukis and hondas have the same rim size, might save a bit of machining if i only have to do the hub?

It's entirely possible to machine a new hub and spoke it to a generic rim

I've been looking at the VMAX and VSTAR 1100 catalogs. The transmission is really similar. It would be interesting to know if anyone has tried to change them. It would be a good option.

I have used a variety of Venture/Royal Star gear sets. Some require the entire set to be swapped while others allow for a gear to be swapped with some machine work. That is what we get the overdrive 5th we use from (Royal Star Tour Deluxe).OEM Gearing Options.jpg
