18x4.00 rear wheel
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:35:18 PM »
helo experts , im pondering can a 3xv - 18 x 4.00 rear wheel fit in the 125r swinger ? im assuming the hubs width / size is the same and the bearing sizes maybe , has anyone done it ? theres a few for sale so not hard to get as such - thanks for any input my friends!!

ps i think the 125r wheel is a 17 x 3.50 from memory ( its tucked away but could have a look )

3XV wheel is 17 x 4.5, Tim. The 3MA 1/3/5 rear wheel is 18 x 4 though, so maybe that's what you are looking at?

Why would you want to fit an 18" wheel in the 125 though? Much better left stock I'd think - better selection of tyres for the 17" rim too.

Agree with Warwick... you can get great tyres for the 3.5x17 rim. Plus I doubt the hub dimensions are the same. There's a reason why people are selling the 18" wheels... cos everyone wants to fit 17" instead!

ahhh yes cheers , must be 3ma then but it was the 3xv that i thought may drop strait in . As wanted to run those conti race attacks this year but they dont do them for 140 rear only 150 and that would look silly / on the 140 wheel .  :o Soo the 17 x 4.50 does that take a 150- just checked its a 150 / 60/17 - cheers for now

The YPM racers run the 3.5 rear wheel and will be riding harder than you ever will on the road.. Rosso Corsa 2's in 140 size are popular. Get a set of them instead of all the effort trying to get a wider wheel to fit.

Hi folks,

the TZR 125 DL´s have mounted a 3,5" x 17 rim. A 150 tire dont work well on the "small" 3,5" rim.

But you can mount a backwheel from a Yamaha SZR660 Belgarda on a 125 DL. It should fit plug´n´play. The SZR wheel is 4" x 17 ( Brembo too, same design) and a 150 tire will work better on it.
At the german TZR-Forum you´ll find some pics from a mounted SZR-wheel on a 125cc TZR DL.
http://forum.tzr-scene.info/index.php?showtopic=7838

By the way.....the front fork from the SZR660 fits p´n´p at the DL´s. There are a lot of SZR parts that fits on the DL f.e. mirror (black), pegs, shock, breaks, gear-lever and so on.

 
Stay healthy

Cheers Chris

i have a 150 on the r wheel and its really not that bad looks wise. some shit touring tyre its a bit hairy now and then but ive ridden worse. Infact its so shit i rode almost everyday for a entire winter on a completely bald tyre on the worst roads and even that was better than this thing. its just the type of tyre and age it  is i dont think it being 150 is the cause however i know a 140 would be a better profile. I see people are starting to ask silly prices for the brembo rims now and the f33 wheels . makes me want to jump ship
interesting side note is that in the manual it suggests using a 150/60/17 pirelli zr for the 125 r wheel it is a 3.50
