    z50 rear wheel on crf50?

    i've got a z50 rear wheel kicking around and from what i hear it fits without mods into a crf/xr swinger. the tire is much wider and the rim is solid (no spokes to break/get loose). has anyone done this mod? would it make circles harder?

    Never tried, it. If you have the parts give it a go. Let us know how it turns out.

    You can run a z50 rear wheel on a crf. I think you need to make one spacer, other than that its a direct swap. I bet you can run them tubeless if you run a bead of caulk between the 2 wheel halfs.



    I was going to do this a while back but got my douglas wheels instead. The Z wheels are dirt cheap.



    Not my bike.

    Re: z50 rear wheel on crf50?

    Yea man, CRF wheel is 180mm wide including spacers. Z50 wheel is only 168mm wide including spacers, so you need to add about a half inch of spacing to the wheel. EddieNewYork has tried it on his CRF50, so you could ask him which side he put the extra spacer on or if he needed to run two spacers. Circles are definately a bit harder on the 8" tires I had, but I am thinking with good 8" street tires it is probably not too bad.

    I did it, you need to add about 1/2" of spacer (4 thick washers is what I did) to the chain side of the wheel/swinger, I cant answer your wheelie question though...

    That is the same Kings Tire that you referenced above, Part #Z111. I didn't have a stock swingarm when I put the bike together, just the 70 one. I don't wheelie it, its a pavement/parking lot bike.
