Do ya'll know if there is any difference between the 2002 and 2003 yz250f wheels/axles/calipers?

I found a wheel/caliper/axle from a 2002 on ebay for pretty cheap. They should fit with my 03 forks right?

Should fit. I have an 01 wheel on 03 forks.

A good thing to do is to check part numbers on the parts fiche. Generally if they change the parts fitment from year to year it will get a different part number.

Question

Hi guys! I am from Hungary, and never posted before o this thread.
I am just about starting the conversion, and bought a 48m kayaba from a 05' YZ250F. Guys at HouseOfHorspower said, it is not the best choice for the conversion. Is it so? Does anyone have the same fork? I have billions of questions, and I am totally confused after reading 120+ pages of this thread.
Should I buy the kit JDRadman engineered from HoH and use my stock wheel/caliper, or should I go for a Yummi wheel/caliper? Every opinion is welcome.

I don't know about those forks, but if HOH said its not the best choice then you probably should go with something else. I have the 03 yz forks and so far so good. I am getting a yammi wheel caliper and axle to fit my forks and will go with a bigger rotor. that seems to be the cheapest option. However, if you have the extra money to keep the bmw wheel and get the axle and caliper bracket made for you, I would do that.

Question

hi Marisa! Using a bigger -320mm- rotor with the yummi caliper/wheel was my original plan, but after holding that tiny little nissin in my hand I just started hesitating. The stock Brembo looks like a train's brake beside the Nissin... In the beginning of this thread Notmybikename seemed really commited to use the yamaha caliper, on other hand, JDRadman wrote like a german engineer, saying silently it is too small. My main issue is safety. Then comes the money. You say both solution is fine?

Hey Ned

Many things will influence your choice - Budget, time, availabilty of parts, how much technical skils you have, your willingness to use your technical skills(whatever the level), availablity of resources and your willingness to learn about the bike.

Wayne is the best one to say why those forks are not ideal. My guess is the weight difference between a YZ250 and a 650 Dakar. They will need the internals redone to work properly. You can make anything work. How far are you prepared to go to get the job done. Read my first sentence again

The wheel choice - What would you rather have to work on? An axle for the BMW wheel or the braking system for the YZ wheel? I chose the BMW wheel as I have the ability to make an axle kit. Read my first sentence again.

Good luck and have fun.

Marisa, I think those wheels/forks/calipers are all the same, you shouldn't have a problem. I am certain my wheel and caliper were not from a 2003 and my forks are 2003's as well.

As for the YZ250/450 as near as I could discern, 250/450 forks are the same aside from the springs, but as you get to the newer forks they get bigger around. You'll already have to remove a small piece of metal trim to make room for the bigger forks with 2003's. You know you'll have to order new springs anyway, so I'm not sure what the real issue is aside from clearance.

The ONLY reason to go with HoH's kit to use BMW wheel/caliper/rotor is if you want to keep the ABS. It's the best way to keep the BMW ABS intact. There are other ways. But the Yammie front wheel/axle/caliper is more than strong enough to run on the Dakar F650. The rotor is not. Unless you have a machine shop and can make your own axle and spacers.

I can't imagine using that small yammie rotor on the road, loaded. I just spent 5000 + miles on my Dakar from Ontario to Death Valley, all loaded for camping. In those mountain passes I appreciated the larger rotor kit I bought from EBC. Others here have the same experience.

That sounds like a great trip! i have a 5,000 mile trip planned for August to the western us, and cant wait! I should be squared away by then on the bike.

I have ordered custom springs, and as soon as they come in, ill get started rebuilding!

Shopping now for rotor, new brake lines, speed bleeders, new handlebars, risers, HWY DB Bars, and eventually a scotts damper.
