Can you drill yamaha wheels to fit a honda bolt pattern? In theory i dont see anything wrong with it..other than you having more holes than normal..or would that make it weaker or something

Not a good idea. You are taking away the structural integrity by doing that. They designed that the face of the wheel is where alot of your support comes from. Chances are nothing bad would happen but you raised the chances of a wheel failing off a big jump. There won't be the same kind of support on the wheel so it could crack between the OEM holes and the holes you made.

I think you could do it but like some others said I would NOT advise it.

I once had a set of dune paddles/ wheels and they had multiple sets of holes in them and so would fit multiple bolt patterns. I did use them on multiple quads with no problems.

I also think it would depend on the type of wheel and the strength of that center section.

Imma drill em, so many people have told me its ok and have done it with NO problems on hard riding, + the rims are douglas .190s, which some of you know are some of the strongest rims. Plus there going on paddle tires, which means no jumping there strictly drag tires so theres hardly any chance they will break.

      So my friend was riding this and all 4 wheels locked up and had to be slid out of the woods. We put it on the trailer and and left it alone thinking it was ice.
       
      So he drove home and as we drug it off the trailer “snap!” Started rolling again. I told him to leave it since it’s rolling and we can figure it out
       
      I’m not close to the machine to try things or even work on it. Buy anyone have an idea. I was thinking ice like mentioned. But nothing was leaking to indicate a broken case or seal. And the fact it rolled just by bouncing on the trailer. Very confused

      A clip from Diamonds Are Forever (1971) with James Bond riding a very early Honda Trike! 
      Three Honda ATCs come in at 1:54 with the one on th left pulling a sweet wheelie for 2 seconds! 
      Bond scenes are great!

      I likely just kissed $200 goodbye buying a Honda 250 this AM from Craiglist.  We'll see.
      - VIN number is off the front frame; one VIN site calls it a 2008 Honda 250 TRX - this baby ain't a 2008; other VIN sites list the VIN as invalid; might be that the owner (a shady dude from a shadier side of my home town) put a 2008 front end on it?  No idea.  
      - a HUGE hint (hint #1) would've been that there's no key to start the machine - gotta use a screwdriver.  I'll likely be visited by police sometime in the near future.
      - owner acquired from another man - owner showed me video of him riding it this summer on a major interstate while very drunk (hint #2) - the machine sounded good in the video
      - no front headlight; owner said machine has new carb - looks Chinese - he didn't have original carb; air intake box is wide open - no long plastic connection sleeve leading into air box like on my 99 king quad; no visible oil leaks; oil is dark; air filter clean; decent plastic; no front right brake apparatus; left brake handle very loose and rear brake doesn't work
      - battery at this point is good; manipulate the ignition switch w/ screw driver and the green neutral light shines (this has since stopped working)
      - it's a kick start machine: when I kicked it down (hint #3), the compression sounded normal, almost "tight"  but at the end of the cycle, there was some awful grinding noise coming from what sounded like either inside the engine or the starter area; I let it settle, kicked it again, same noise heard at the end of cycle; owner said it likely needs a new starter - I only hope it's this simple
      pictures attached - the throttle cable / zip tie pic is my favorite - but it works!  it was CRAZY dirty prior to pressure washing - and the water in air box is likely secondary to the power wash - no water was in it when purchased
      gotta few things to complete on the king quad - will be changing motor/gear oil in honda and getting new oil filter over time - talk soon - hope y'all had a great Christmas

      I want to upgrade, not sure what size tires will fit and do I need wheel spacers and lift kit?
      What performance mods do I need to do for the larger tires or don't need to ?
      Like the Maxxis Vipr tires.
      Maxxis Vipr front 27x9R-14
      Maxxis Vipr Rear 27x11R-14
      What size wheel will work? offset?
      Stock 25x10-12 Rears and 25x8-12 Fronts
      Stick with 12 inch wheels and get taller tires?
      Thanks,

      Bought a kazuma 110 yesterday with carb issues, needs new front sprocket, and a ignition switch which is no big deal. Got the quad near dark, got from a friend so didn't think it would be a problem. Long story short their is a lot of things wrong he didn't tell me about including the rear wheels are locked up and wil not move, read on other forums that the rear diff was more than likely screwed up. Was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a rear diff rebuild kit for a kazuma because I cant find one online, Does it have to be a kazuma rebuild kit? how much do you think a mechanic would charge to rebuild? Any other suggestions would be appreciated greatly!

      I own a stock 2002 Beartracker with 10" rims. I found a set of new take-offs wheels and tires from a Grizzly that are 12". Was told they would fit. Got them home and the right rear tire hits the muffler. all others fit fine. Any ideas or options. Can the ATV be lifted a few inch to make the new wheels work?

      I have a 2002 Bear Tracker that has 10 rims/wheels. A friend has a set of new 12" wheels from a 2009 Grizzly. Will these wheels fit my Bear Tracker?
