Fair point.advCo said:Looking good. I may have already said this, but I'd recommend throwing your seat on (however rough) and a pad similar thickness to what you want, strap the frame down real nice like and sit on it with your feet on the pegs for 20 minutes or so.
Just so you avoid finding out the positioning sucks after you get all your linkage done. I guess its probably less crucial with the bolt on mounts, but I've found its a good test.
Yeah, the 16" in back was just gonna be weird. 18" rear and 19" front will be much nicer I think. Of course I screwed up and ordered an 18" for the front and will have to return it. I already ordered the correct 19" front. My buddy at the indy HD shop in town is going to show me how to use his tire machine and let me do it in trade for some shared whiskey so win/win.1fasgsxr said:I thought of going 18 frt and rear on the 1000. I really dont like the 16 rear 19 front combo at all.
if you swap for an aluminum rim it will be even lighter. I don't know what year those KZP wheels came off but after 1980 they were designed to be tubeless so the weight savings are moot as the inner tube adds the weight difference back.canyoncarver said:I changed my mind on wheels again.
I re-found my 18" spoke rear and 19 spoke front in my barn. It "looks" lighter to me and likely is, those mags are beefy. These will line up in the stock swingarm and caliper better than the big KZP mag. Neither of the two rear wheel photos have a disc mounted at the moment.
