Question about Motorcycles
2003 R1 5PW. Will the front forks & wheels from a Yamaha 2006 R1 5VY, fit my 2003 R1 5PW. I've got a pair of 5VY forks and i wondered if these will fit into the 2003 R1 yokes and also the wheels, especially the rear wheel from the 2006 R1. If so, what is needed to fit, ie: spacers etc.

A new wheel is going to cost $$$$. You should be able to get a good used wheel for $$ by getting on the web and Google
' motorcycle salvage yamaha '. Take three digital photos of your wheel, a side view both sides and a close up of the brake mount area. When you locate a dealer saying they have the wheel, email the photos and your contact info. If their wheel matches up, go for it.

SOURCE: fit new front wheel bearing
It is a pretty involved job without the proper tools....a press is used as Lloyd mentioned. If you do attempt it or if you take it somewhere....make sure they do not discard the shim (if there is one) that is inside the hub when you take the bearings apart. If you do not replace it then you will be fixing the bearings very shortly.
Not sure where you are located but there are some people that will have you ship them a hub assembly and they will rebuild them. Take a look at fordfestiva.com for more help.
