Default 21" and 23" Front Wheel pics.

Having a hard time finding images of 21" front wheels on the XC. I am trying to decide between a 21" and 23" with 6 degree rake.

Please post pics of your big wheel!

Looks like it may be raked a bit?
How much has it been lowered?

I bought it like this, so I don't have the specs on the front, but it's been raised in front, which I think gives it the raked look. The rear used to be lowered 3", but my driveway ate my exhaust tips, so not it's at 2". I liked the look of the 3, but my riding style didn't allow for the pipes to be so low in corners.

I have the Ness kit and it didn't change much at all. The front end feels a little heavier now, that's it.

23" w/ Ness 6 raked trees, ness fender, ness 10 ga. wheel and Vic Baggers ABS tone ring. I'd go with the 23" as IMO they look right at home on the bike, but 21" looks good to.

Nice rides guys! Wish mine was that far. I'm going with a Ness G3 23" wheel, matching rotors, 6 degree Ness trees, Vic Baggers tone wheel, Kewl Metal Kiru front fender. Most is here I'm just waiting another 4 weeks for my front fender.

Thinking about the front fairing turn signal delete. Just gotta figure out what to run for signals then. Too damn cold even in the garage to do anything right now. Not to mention falling on the ice the other day and really screwing myself up. As one ages it seems injuries take longer to recover from. Even minor one. Argh!
