Rim sizes

Does anyone run a 17 rim on the front and the stock 18 on the rear? This seems economical rather than springing for a 17 inch rear wheel.

I do, I have a Honda Hawk front wheel in the front & the stocker in the rear


the 18" rear with a 17" front would put even more weight on the front end... seams as though it wouldnt handle that well.

I'm talking for the street so weight on the front isn't a problem. You can also work the F/R ratio back to stock with the suspension adjustments. The rear axel would be a little higher depending on the aspect ratio of your tires.

I've put about 5,000 miles on my bike with this set up, It works fine! :busted:

Thanks. That was the answer I wanted to hear.
