Hi, Just wondering weather it's possible to convert my XTX into a XTR. Can I "just" change the wheels and tyres, or would I need new fork ect. ? Has anyone done this before?
Cheers

Just an adon to the above, I've read the posting about converting the XTR into and XTX
http://yam-xt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=449
But I can seem to find anything about XTX to XTR. The reason I want to do this is that I would like to go riding in the Aussie National parks and I defenately need som Off road tyres and a bigger front wheel for that.

According to Yamaha Aust all the bikes bought into Aust were XTR's but converted to XTX's as they thought there was no market for the XTR.
I don't know if this helps you but prob just the wheels.
I don't know what the difference is other then the wheels, but my bike has a compliance plate that says XTR.

You will have to change the front forks, unfortunatly but luckily the back wheel is ok, have you looked into just taking the mudguard off and sticking some off road tyres on the bike. Or am I just being a woman and not really knowing what I am talking about???????

I'll give Yamaha OZ a call. Cheers!
The way I see it, it looks like I could fit a 18" rear wheel and something like a 20" on the front. I just want to know if anyone had done it yet.

No need really for an 18" on the back, standard sizes for most trail bikes are 21" on the front and 17" on the rear...

You can get a michelin Anakee to fit the rear but nothing to fit the front i have looked.
I did look at Avon Distanza's front and rear, they are a wet supermoto tyre and quite an aggressive tread but don't seem to be avaible in Aust
