This was a cheap set of wheels a while ago, so that the freehub failed didnt really surprise me, and to be honest at 20 odd pounds really quite cheap, easy to fitt and new one works fine, little surprised shimano dont supply with it a set of 8 ball bearings, but hey stuck the old ones in with loads a grease, and polished the cone, and all ok, nice item, will prob now last as long as the wheels
Questions & Answers (10)
Can I use this with Shimano R500 wheels.
01 Aug 2022
I have just bought an 11 speed 105 cassette. Will this freehub work with this cassette and Shimano R500 wheels?
This will not work as WH-R500 wheels will take only 10 sped cassettes, OR MTB 11 speed ones.

Do you know if it will fit a Shimano hg500 cassette? Thanks.
26 Jul 2022
This will fit Shimano 8-11 speed MTB cassettes.

Is this the correct freehub for WH-R 500 rear hub please
07 Jan 2022
Hi, Shimano wheels can be a tiny bit faffy when it comes to freehubs- please email [email protected] so we can make sure you get the right part :)

Hi, I have installed a CS5700 10s cassette but need a spacer since the cassette is not completely fixed. which spacer measure do I need? Thanks
If you are using a 10-speed cassette on this freehub, no spacer is required. please check it has been correctly installed.

will this fit shimano heel WH R540
09 Apr 2021
This looks the nearest I can find to what I want. is this compatible with Y-4BE98080? The set up is for a 9 speed cassette, 130mm length between hangers i.e. over lock nuts
Unfortunately not, we do not have anything suitable for the WHR450.

Thanks - 09/04/21
Can I use this on my shimano R500 wheel
23 Mar 2021
I have shimano R500 wheels. from looking here

I thought the correct free hub should be part Y-4BG98160 or is it discontinued and this one is what I need?
thanks in advance.
Thank you for your enquiry, yes this is the correct part

What are the measurements?
02 May 2020
Hi, I'm wondering if this will fit onto my hub (labelled Exage sealed mech HG50). It looks like it will, but I need to know the total outside length of this freehub body please (i.e. from where it buts against the hub to the opposite end, in mm)?
Hi, We can't confirm it will fit but the outside length is 38 mm. Thanks
Hi, Can I Use This Free Hub Body On My Rear R550 Also....Thanks In Advance.
06 Jul 2016

This freehub body is not listed as compatible with the R550 as well I'm afraid as the hub design is very different. The correct freehub body is no longer available for the R550 either I'm afraid.

Hi, Exists There Any 11Spd Hub Body Solution Compatible With Shimano Wh-R500 Rear Wheel?
28 Jun 2016

There aren't any solutions that we're aware of allowing you to convert your WH-R500 wheels to 11spd I'm afraid.

Can This Freehub Take A 10 Spd Sprocket Set
11 Dec 2013

Yes it can take a 10spd cassette. 8, 9 and 10spd free hubs use the same width overall spacing.
