    YZ 426 Fat Tire / "Trailer Wheel" Conversion

    This might be a little extreme but here's a custom Fat Tire conversion on a 2002 YZ 426 with a "Trailer Wheel" type hub assembly front and rear. This design also uses the jack shaft style swing arm like the BW350's etc

    That is pretty cool and looks like it was well done!

    I'd be interested in closeups of how the rear hub and rear disc mounting were done. Are the front triples custom and is that a full custom rear hub? If so, maybe Mekdad could take some tips from it.

    Too bad it's not street legal, it would be a great hooligan bike around town!

    Great score!

    At least he didn't go the whole way and "Darkside" it - with the tire that would have been on the trailer wheel...

    This would be a bad azz urban marauder if it could be made street legal I might check and see if Baja Designs has a kit for the YZ

    It's a high rpm machine ie needs to run faster for proper cooling so it's basically a sand dune monster and maybe a desert bike

    The guy that designed these sold kits for $3000 but he said the rear swing arm had 80 hours labor and just could not be mass produced on the cheap

    The kit was wider triple trees, custome front hub and axle

    Full custom rear swing arm and custom rear hub and axle

    All utilizing OEM YZ components

    He said a DR650 air cooled thumper might be better for a low speed crawler

    He only sold 5 total and this was his personal prototype with lots of extra had build hours so I couldn't say no to the chance to own it for what I thought was a fair price
