!!HELP!! Bent Rear Rim!! 18 MT07

Recommended Posts

Spm13

Anyone who knows NYC knows our potholes.  I was on I-95 and literally could not react fast enough, no shot, and i hit it with rear wheel.... bent my rim pretty bad.  Took it to Yamaha dealer, cant be bent or heated cause itll crack.  So heres my question...

Ive been all over the internet looking for used rims.  So far ive found used rims for FZ/MT07 and FZ/MT09... all with part codes "1RC-blah-blah".... Yamaha is saying for my bike, the 2018 MT07, that i absolutely need to get the rear wheel with the part code starting with "2DR"... now i looked it up and sure enough that's the rear rim, but my question is, why cant i buy a rim off a FZ07 or FZ09 (MT) and put that on??? its a different part number, but its exactly the same rim and takes exactly the same tire, all sizes are exactly the same.  Why are they saying i must get the 2DR code, why cant i grab a 1RC, and slap it on... or is it just not that simple??  I mean everything looks identical.  I would assume you just gotta pop everything out, rotors, bearings, etc, and just put them on the new rim, and put it on, no??  Someone please help make this clear because id def rather grab a used one for 200 maybe even with a tire on it, than pay 350 for a brand new cast.  Thanks guys!!!

I'm pretty sure the ABS though is only on the front brake, not the rear

if the bike has ABS and or TC it will have a "speed sensor" ring on both wheel hubs...  not all years of the FZ/MT/FJ-07/09 have ABS and or TC...

 

I can see in the OPs picture the bike has a "speed sensor" - that must be removed carefully prior to removing the rim and installing new rim...

It looks like it has rear wheel ABS from the photos on the Yamaha website.  The 2017 ABS model also shows a 2DR part number and the non-ABS shows 1RC so there must be a difference because of that.  I assume it is the mount for the speed sensor.

The sensor will mount to the swing armr, not the wheel. Looks like it mounts to the bracket that holds the rear caliper. There will be a ring on the wheel or disk rotor that the sensor sees however. That's not in view in that pict

 

So for that ABS to work, it'll have to be a wheel that the ring can mount to.

Oh, it's not so easy to remove wheel bearings w/o destroying them - even with a proper puller. The bearings will usually have to be pulled via their inner races and that does them no good.

 

I would buy new. Throw them in the freezer for some, erm, shrinkage, and then heat the hub with a heat gun on low before pressing the new bearings in - via their outer races

 

There will likely be a 3rd bearing in the hub, behind the rear sprocket. If the bearing comes off with the hub, you can just reuse it.

Thanks guys, yea I've been noticing in all the pics I've been seeing, that little "L" cable right behind my caliper is the speed sensor, you don't see it on the older models, I figured I'd have to eff with that, and the bearings. Ugh I know its gonna be a decent project for me since I'm not that inclined mechanically, but I can do it, just needed to know if I can get a 1RC and save a couple hundred... so I'm guessing no can do. Its gotta be the 2DR??  I mean couldn't I just say eff the speed sensor lmao prolly not😂

Dunno if the dash is also different to show the ABS, but w/o the back wheel's ABS, you might be looking at a blinking light all the time. Fortunately, the dash is, well, out of line of sight.

Yes , the dash will show a orange abs light! 

A  fz 07 with abs will start with that light and after some meters , if everything it's ok,  the light will turn off ... if you do a burnout before the light is off the abs will be disabled until you restart the bike

That's annoying. My '96K1100RS BMW's ABS light would never go out after a very cold start - even with the battery living on a float charger. The ABS would draw such a large whoomp of current when it cycled on, there would be enough juice available from a relatively small battery to cycle it properly.

 

The light would then blink at you. After a few blocks to get the bike warmed up a bit, I'd pull over, shut it off and restart and make the ABS happy - crap, I don't miss that land yacht one little bit. It was always something.

These are the three raised sections that need drilling and tapping to carry the disc for the speed sensor

That sensor is $48. Good thing he doesn't need it. 

 

This is where having a spoked wheel comes in handy.
