I've got a 2007 warrior, would like to powder coat a set of wheels in black, but also want to keep the stock wheels, so planning to post a classified asking if anyone has a set of stock wheels they want to part with. my question is will the older style 3 spoke wheels bolt right up (pully rotors, etc) or do I need to stick the with the newer 5 spokes like the ones that came with the bike

I have an '04 Warrior with '06 wheels on it. I do have an '06 front end also, but the rear wheel bolts on just fine. I believe the 3 spoke and 5 spoke wheels are interchangeable.

Another good catch Rob, you da man!


Here's a post about putting newer 5-spoke wheels on an '02 '03 so its reverse of your question but illustrates:

There's more to it than expected but it can be done. Notice conversation about forks.

I Think the bolt pattern/number of boltsfor the brake disks are different on the 5 spoke than the 3 spoke. Otherwise the same.

Why not just powder coat the wheels you have on your bike?
That would be too easy



Mostly just for reasons of downtime. Would rather be able to ride since I commute on the bike daily, so I figured if I could find someone willing to part with a set of stock wheels at a reasonable price I could get them powder coated, then once complete swap them out. However after reading the post regarding 3 spoke to 5 spoke, it appears that this would be easiest if I had a set of the 5 spoke since then all the rest of my stock stuff (rotors) would bolt right up. Mostly what I was looking for was was it a straight across swap and the answer appears to be no.

Knowing what I know now, will probably just wait for winter when it gets cold and wet and get the the wheels I have done as you have pointed out.
