17 inch rear wheel?

Post by Victorh » Thu Sep 22, 2016 8:33 am

So my new SE finally arrived from South Africa.....super happy. At the bike shop to get registered but we noticed an interesting modification. It has a 17inch rear wheel....
Any ideas why someone woyld have done this?
Do I panic and look for a 18inch? Image

I bet it was done because previous owner was too short ;)

My best friend's SE had a 17" rear too from PO, another shorty.

You can keep it as is for now I guess

What he said, looks like the stantions are dropped by a couple of MM as well.

With R18 wheel you have more offroad tires to chose. If you are ok with dual sport tires, like karoo or tkc80, then keep r17
