XT owners...how big did you go on front sprocket?

I have a stock XT550 with 15 tooth front sprocket and 42 rear sprocket. Since I'm slowly turning it into more of a road bike (rarely hit dirt as it is) I was wondering if any of you guys went as big as a 16 tooth front?

This winter the bike gets: New rear shock, new front forks (wr450F sourced), another set of rims, new sprockets (16T and 40T respectively), and a new X-ring chain.

I would like to know also.

A 17 will fit but watch your chain tension. it runs close to the case.

EDIT> Sorry guys I miss read, a 17 fits a 500..........................
