Default 23" wheel

Ok, so here's the deal. Ready to pull the trigger on a 23" wheel, rake kit blah blah blah. Wanted to ask others before I do how is it driving with one??? I average about 6-7,000 a j year & don't plan on changing that but don't wanna spend 4,000 to make my bike drive like shit. I know it'll steer heavier but just want to know it'll still drive well. Opinions are welcome but need some response from paying customers. Thank you in advance

I would try to ride one first hand , you may hate what someone else loves .... Its a lot of money too , that is very difficult to re-coupe when selling / trading . I would want to know I love it . JMHO . Good luck Brother .

That's the deal. I've ridden the magnum & like the feel. A little heavier but easily adjustable to. Just not sure. Figured I'd ask.

23" wheel will feel heavy in slow speed situations. Once your up to speed the bike rides beautifully. I have a 21" and have rode an XC with a 23" for 60 miles or so. I couldn't tell the difference. The 26" I rode was a little different story... It felt very rough. The only advice I have for you is "Vicbaggers".

Yep send him a pm. He has the inside most up to date skinny on Vic custom parts n gets all his shit for free.

Check Witchdoctors, VicBaggers n Rusty Jones as well as Mike at HMD520. Each one will put together a competent well designed package. Double check also regarding fairing re alignment. Some provide different fairing mounts others provide spacers and there is also a headlight tilt bracket. Good luck!

I live about half an hour from VicBaggers. I am considering going with one of their backbones (stock rake) that has their torque tubes. Don't want to spend the $$ on a larger wheel/fender/paint. With the cams,pcv, and rev-extend, all I'll need is a new dyno tune for the added air intake.

Thanks for the compliments bob but they don't mean much coming from you. I've been called worse things by bigger self serving a$$holes than you. Does your dick touch your arshole? I'm sure it does. Oh and you misspelled douche.

You have been called worse....


Why is that not hard to belive....

So I would guess I'm not the only one that knows you have issues....
