    wrmdovr If it were easy.....everyone would do it!

    if i remove the disc will the cover housing, part number 1U42584700 fit it the place where the disc would mount or is there a part in which to conceal where the disc would normally be located? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That looks like the cover but not available from Yamaha anymore. Maybe try the classifieds.

    If you look on the other side of your wheel you will se a plastic cover that snaps into the rotor mounting holes, If you remove your disc brake rotor you need to find another plastic cover.
    The earlier spoke wheels used a chrome steel cover that used screws to hold them on.

    Try posting a parts wanted ad in the classified section of this web site. Searching Ebay.

    I did this yesterday. Some cheap short chinese buttonhead screws. The quality was so-so at best but good enough for decoration.

    Will probably dab some satin black in the recesses.
