I believe you have already done the math and I am probably missing something here, but wouldn't there be a huge ground clearance issue when you just replace the front wheel with a 17"? The front height will be reduced approximately 2 inches and the rake angle will become too steep. And if you also reduce rear height to compensate the modified rake angle, the bike will be even lower. Considering the wideness of the lower frame (foot pegs and the side stand are positioned very low and wide on the frame), the bike cannot lean much into corners without scraping the pegs (or even worse, the side stand). I wondered because I've read that the Roadie already suffers a bit of ground clearance problem with it's lower chassis and the same footpeg and sidestand positions (not that I have managed to scrape any of them  :034:).

Maybe there is a way to position the forks lower, so the front height won't be reduced in the first place?

Got to love a 'tard, keep going.
You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear, but you can use it to make some lovely novelty luggage tags.

Supermotard? Shortened to tard

What I wanna know is are you sorting the header and cams to give it some striple fizz, like just_peekn did to his last year

I dumped my roadie and went 1050 sport for more grunt  and better pillion ride comfort

I might also look out for a bent xc if they're not too . Always wondered what following the cam/header project might have done.......

Will the standard fork covers impede the new front tyre... the lowers look very exposed now.

Would like to take it for a ride - it looks cool
