I bought a WR400F over 2 years ago was set up as a super motard and also had the dirt wheels. I also had a WR250F at the time and the whole of buying the WR400F was to get the super setup. The super motard was Suzuki RGV250 (Bandit in US I rims, with a 320mm brake rotor, front caliper relocator and a machined rear brake disc.

I got the WR400F home, I stripped the motard gear off it, put it back to then sold the bike for more than what I paid for it. A little bit of elbow and tyre shine goes a way!

I now had the complete WR400F supermotard and began bolting it onto my and to my surprise the front bolted on. The spacers for either side, the caliper relocator and the 320mm brake disc fitted

On the rear, the wheel bolted up but two small problems, the brake was too small and the rear axle was too thick at the non-threaded end.

I found a solution for both of I took the disc to a local dealer who said it wasn’t off a but he could see what he could do. Two later and sucess, I bought a used rear disc off a road bike for $145. I got it installed it and it was about 10mm too in the overall diameter. This was the down and it worked a treat.

While at the machine shop, the axle bolt was slightly to fit through the rim perfect.

At the start of year I sold my WR250F and to a 2007 WR450F. The plan was to it just as a dirt bike and buy road bike but curiosity got the of me. One weekend afternoon after for a ride in the local sand I came home, cleaned up the and began swapping out the super wheels onto the bike.

50 minutes later and the wheels bolted up and ready to go.

I’m suprised that with the machining of an axle bolt and the rear disc, these fit all Yamaha WR’s from

Below are pictures of the wheels on my now. They were all but within the last month, I the wheels back, polished the lips, spray painted the spoke area with black and fitted brand new The front is a Pirelli Diablo 120/60/17 and the rear is a Pirelli 150/60/17.

I would definetly recommend this upgrade to anyone who a bit of road riding on their WR. The let down on the bike now is the size of the tank. I’m sick of up every 100km’s, so I will be a IMS tank in the near future. As for ratios, I’m running a 14 front sprocket and a 43 tooth

Still gives the bike of power down low, but the will still sit on 110km/h no problems!
