Would you like to gain 4+ inches in the front for almost free?



step 1-Remove your front rims.

step 2-remove the tires off the rims.

step 3-take a nut and bolt with two orings and seal your current valve stem hole.

step 4-drill out a hole on the opposite side of the rim and use an older screw together valve stem(car style) about $5ea.


You will not need to fool with the shock location and the only reason to mess with the vale stem is to clear the brakes.


I bolted the wheels on and it was wide and took 10 min,lol.




It will work fine for wide on a budget.


I may do this when my new wheels show up and do a write up.

A lot of people in the race world do this.But it screws with your castor or camber.I can't remember which one.

It also gives a deep wheel look in the front,if you can live with that your only really playing with wheel offsets.

Everything will still be factory strong.It could add some but not enough to worry about stress on you lug nuts,but this is an atv not a car so I doubt it.

Won't that work on the rear? I bought a Warrior once, that had the rear tires and rims turned backwards and it made it wider, but I turned them back around. Maybe the offset is different on the Honda rear rims.

I didn't know about Honda offsets, but the Yamahas are a little wider if you turn them backwards, at least the Warrior's are. Maybe you could turn the Warrior rims backwards and put them on a Honda. Some Yamaha rims will fit a Honda. I don't know about the Warrior rims. I guess it would be a lot better to just do it right, though.
