no loads of room,the front is only as exposed as a crf or other motocross bikes, its never going off road,(got a crf230 for that)so cant see an issue,

Very nice, I'm looking to make my XC as useable as I can (inc the odd track day).  When you fitted the smaller front did it affect the ABS or speedo (I guess this is done from somewhere else)?

If I keep a set of wheels like yours would it be a case of simply swapping them around to go Supermoto or do I need to consider changing other things as well?

hi my bike is non abs,i think speedo sensor is in the gearbox,rear wheel stays same just better tyre,front is a 17"morad rim laced to a new hub,you can swap the wheels over any time,no mods have been done,apart from body panels taken off,ive kept all my xc stuff so i can put it back to standard anytime

What about front fork brace?  Won't you get a wee bit more flex w/o fender crossover?

Mine still awaiting pickup so I can only go by my other bikes.  One has a plastic fender but has an integrated stiffener hoop into said plastic fender.  Even my chromes have a stiffening hoop?  Properly designed, even plastic can keep it rigid when bolted up.  Course inverse forks could just inherently be more rigid than standard ones anyways.
