has anyone considered this or done it?
thanks - I'm still researching and trying to figure out if this is the right way to go. If I can't find a decent 17" for the front I may make this my winter project next winter.Bigfoot isn't a conversion, it's just putting street tires on a dirt bike with the original 18/19" and 21" dirt wheels. It's a cheap way to get into supermoto.
To answer your original question, I'm almost certain no one has put a 19" front on this bike. I say go for it and tell us all about it (including pics of course).
Personally I find it laughable to think that any hypermotard was built to even touch a gravel road.I would love to see more people try this and come up with conversions just like people are doing for street and track. I'm not talking about jumping it 10ft in the air, just more like hypermotard, maybe 70 on road 30 offroad.
I like it both ways and don't think either is a waste of money. Maybe I'm crazy and thinking too far out of the box, but I picked this bike instead of a supermoto and maybe something could be made to get a little bit of both.
