Kawa Versys 19" wheel conversion questions
« on: March 26, 2016, 08:43:55 am »
So a long story, into a short one. a mate bought a 2008 versys a few weeks ago as a first bike, and i rode it before he purchased it and it's stuck in my head.

I only have the KLR 650 left, which is awesome, but a few of my mates have 650 versys, ducati hypr, which as you can see, plainly faster.

I am loving my KLR offroad, and wanna continue my offroading exploring, and the VERSYS fits into that price bracket i want to spend, but The 17" alloys are putting me off,

Has anyone done a 19" conversion front  and rear  and suspension upgrade on the front? if so, point me in the right direction where

See picture

Go Green, Kawasaki KLR

21" spoke wheel with double discs almost complete,will be a simple plug and fit  type,so you can easily go back to 17" front wheel.(same calipers,axle etc)?
Once done,back wheel next......,will Post pics soon.
