If you like it, that is all that matters. For me, I don't see enough difference to warrant the time, effort, and money. Both versions look fine.

When I've looked through the pics of custom XCs with bigger than stock front wheels, there was something common to them that I liked but it took a little bit to figure it out. Then I realized it wasn't the wheel as much as it was the fender/wheel setups I liked. What they had in common was a fender tip-to-tip/axle line. I dig the look.

I think it looks good but would like to see a pic pulled back a bit so we can see the whole bike with shortened fender.

I kind of liked it but something was bugging me - then it hit me. The square fashion in which the fender was cut. I personally would like something like this, where the sides are cut at more of an angle.

(I like retouching photos)

Good touch up! Sort of combined what you suggested with the profile of the fairing.

Thanks!

Interesting. The styled cut is definitely different. I'd like to see it on the wheel; it's not doing anything for me as is.
