17" front wheel and tire setup
« on: May 26, 2015, 03:28:42 AM »
Want to make more of a motard handling scooter. Looked through threads and cannot find if anyone has experimented with a smaller front wheel yet.

Not so sure the ECU is smart enough to keep up with ABS on a smaller wheel. You probably want to do a lot of research on this one...

Thanks. Didn't even think of that. Don't want a biased opinion from factory. Any suggestions.

Hopefully someone else will chime in. Maybe the difference in circumfrence won't make any difference, but I'd hate to see ya spend that much without checking it out first. :821:
