2015 Fz-07 Wheel Replacement

Recommended Posts

Grantassstic

Well, sadly I need to replace the front wheel on my 2015 Fz-07 (graphite edition, with the blue/purple frame and wheels). My confusion stems from choosing which wheel to purchase as two are listed in the OEM guide for my particular model. They are: Cast Wheel, Front DPBM15 FOR DNMN and Cast Wheel, Front LGB FOR BWC1,VRC1 ( http://oemparts.chaparral-racing.com/oemparts/a/yam/53a99b1cf8700220a44158d2/front-wheel ). 

 

I have contacted Chaparral, but would appreciate if I could get faster feedback here!

 

Cheers

The first part number ending with the digits -P0 is for the purple wheel.

The one with -98 on the end is the black wheel.

Make sure you get the round one, there is the euro model which is flat on one side

Thanks for the heads up! I'm choosing from the California specific model (yes--stupid emissions means we got a separate model) so I should be ok.

You can reuse the inner and outer spacers and maybe the outer dust seals if yer careful, but there will really be no way to remove the old bearings w/o doing them harm. Order those as well while yer at it. 

 

Seems like we've seen a lot of bent rims for this bike. These wheels must either be really soft or people need to keep up with air pressure monitoring. I suspect the crappy suspension doesn't help either. At least they're not outrageously expensive, but still. .

Thanks for the input.
