Hi, I am looking into the option of putting larger wheels on to my street 500 at this stage either 18 or 19 inch at the front and 16 or 17 inch at the back. Has anyone done this or does anyone have any experience with this or knows of any restrictions in wheel size or rubber size.
Pics would be great, let me know.
Cheers.

I am seriously thinking of changing the rear to a 16" simply because there are more tyre choices for a 16. What this will also do is make the bike a bit more manouverable in traffic. Larger rear wheel changes the steering geometry (decreases rake) for better cornering. Petro... keep me posted on what you do.

My plan right now to get a 16" wheel cut from a block and make it look like a replica. 17" front is remaining for now.
