Default Streetfighter Front Tire Set-up

Has anyone swapped out the front wheel with a larger wheel set-up to accommodate a 160/60 ZR17 front tire? Streetfighter Style?

Can't say I have ever seen a street fighter with such a large front tyre!
Got any pics you can share as an example?
Just from thinking about it, you would need new forks, new triple tree etc etc etc.

New forks would not be necessary, just the wheel/tire, triple clamps, and a suitable axle.

Ok, for starters, that thing is just plain badass sexy!!
What was that to begin with? Or is it a complete custom build?

Good luck with whatever you come up with!
And don't forget the pics!!

That looks sic.
Any one ride a set-up like that though? I couldn't imagine cornering would ever be the same. For some one like me though who only rides street currently and casually I'd love it, lol.

There's ways to get it a bit wider without triples... but then it gets really creative.

None of these are 650r, but may give you an idea what is possible, or show others why you want to do it.
I was gonna copy some of the pics over... but it's easier to just give the guys their credit by linking to it....

and

Some samples...
150/80/16 on a stock front wheel
gsxr1000 2001
cbr900rr 16x3.5 front
zx7 calipers


This one has a bit more custom work....
