Biko I think I saw where you mentioned re-laceing or replacing the 21" Wheel on your sporty with a 19"? If you did how do you like the ride with the 19"? I'm planning on relacing the 21" on my 800 with some different spokes this winter an I haven't decided whether to just relace the 21" rim or relace with a 19" rim as well ? Any help and or opinions on this topic would be greatly appreciated. I 've bid on a 21" harley wheel that's been relaced with twisted spokes for 50 buck's on ebay but don't know if I'll win or not. Won't bid more than a $100 for it anyway. Just so the other member's know. You can get wheel adapters from www.scootworks.com so you can adapt harley wheels to our vulcans.

re

yep,i sure did and it made more difference than i thought it would.
i changed to a 19" cast mag wheel with a 100 tire and the bike is more stable than before,mostly at slower speeds and on rough surfaces is where i notice it most,it dropped the front end an inch or so and took the little factory rake
out of the bike but i like the look of the mag wheel up front much better
since it has a solid wheel in the back-i'm just too lazy to clean spokes :grin:
i did have to use a slightly bigger spacer but it went right on :wink:
