17" Front wheel/fork guard question

Recommended Posts

I also posted this in the CRF250X/R forum but figured u guys might have more knowledge on the subject.....

I got my 17" rims and they dont have tires yet but I threw them on the bike to see how they would look, when I mounted the front up I noticed that they are rubbing the fork guards on both sides. Do I need to notch the fork guards or am I doing something wrong here??? I am running a 17x3.5 rim...... this is a 04' CRF250X

If the rim is rubbing the guards now w/o the tire you might have bigger problems than you think ?? I sure hope the tire won't rub on the fork legs ??? Acerbis and a couple other companies make protecters (around 30.00 bucks)and from I've seen are different profiles, maybe one brand is slimmer than the other ??? I've seen a couple 525 's with notched guards.... sorry no picts....
