So what do I need to do to make a talon hub from '15 YZF work with '06 YZ? Sent an email to Dubya about a week ago with no response?

Front or rear? For the front, the easiest would be a bearing that has a 20mm ID but has the OD of the YZF hub. Unfortunately that bearing doesn't exist. You could make a make a race that's got a thickness of only 1mm but it would be a PITA to make and durability could come into play. For the front you're pretty much SOL. The rear is much the same... You could swap the 15 YZF swingarm over though and use the entire rear end...

That don't sound good....For my '05 I ordered up a set of Tusk wheels and they came with a set of spacers for both set-ups, just figured there would be a easy way to work with spacers to get the Talons to do something similar sad

You would want to look at the supplied bearing sizes on the Tusk wheels. They would be larger so they would use the spacers. If you have access to a lathe and good quality metal, you could easily make them. If not you could pay a decent penny to have them made...

Have you tried giving Dubya a call? Sometimes shops get flooded with emails, and it's tough to respond to each and every one.

Finally called Dubya instead of trying to email, got the spacers ordered and couple days latter they showed up. Front wheel on, now just waiting for 2010 YZ250F swingarm to show up to get the rear wheel installed and should be good to go.Photo
