If anyone happens to get a black one and wants the blue wheels on it please let me know. I want to swap the blue for the black given the paint scheme I have planned after I get the race bodywork. I know it is a long shot but figured I'd post just in case.

Not the same. YB (Yamaha Black) wheels on the R7 only cross reference to the 900.

FRONT 2DR-25168-00-98
FZ-09 2017
MT-09 2018, 2019, 2020
XSR900 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019


REAR 2SC-25338-00-98
FJ-09 2015, 2016, 2017
Tracer 900 2019
Tracer 900 GT 2020

After a bit of research, I think any 700 or 900 rim will bolt right on. The reason they all don't cross reference is the first 3 letters in the part # don't match and they're the only ones that indicate a different model design. In Europe, MT part #'s cross reference to older models because they've aways been designated as MT but here in the US, old FZ part #'s changed from 1RC- to 2DR- in 2017 just as the MT designation came about.

I think the Nebura Gold wheels from a 2020 XSR would look good on the R7.

Actually I’m probably going to go this route. Because now that they released the anniversary color scheme I think I’m going to copy that on mine. Red/White is the colors I wanted anyway.

Correct, the first three letters/number are the specific model, the second set of numbers/letters are the actual part number, that is what matters mostly. After that it is version, etc.

The second set of numbers only tell you it's a cast rim. A skinny 19" front criuser rim and a 17" front sportbike rim use the same set of numbers. The first set are the size/design and the last two sets are revision and color.

That goes against the Yamaha part number decoders.

Yamaha part# -25168- has been used for all cast front wheels long before the MT. Same with most parts. Maybe you're thinking of a different brand.

Nope, my misunderstanding of the number. The model ties into it too, I see that now. Damn, just when you think you know something!

The NG rear is 2SC-25338-00-8L and front is 2DR-25168-00-8L. The R7 rear cost $388.26 and the XSR900 rear 2DR-25338-00-8L costs $411.18 so they're probably different.

Strange, I may just go the paint route then. Unless I can get part numbers for the gold R7 anniversary bike which would be confirmed 100% but I’m pretty sure those probably aren’t even available yet. I was really hoping to keep the blue wheels and mount rains. Oh well I’ll save some money with paint. Thanks for the help though I do appreciate it.

700 and 900 wheels were not freely interchangeable in the past. As already said here, front wheel is different. It is the width of the hub, that the discs are mounted with a different space of about 5 mm, between 700 (117 mm) and 900 (122 mm).

I don't know what years I was looking at. What year was the 900 using different wheels?

Never mind. I was comparing just the rear wheels. I should've said any year 700 wheels will fit as mentioned and that any 900 rear wheel should fit also.
