That would be the cheaper route, but either way, any 21" front wheel, would it even work? I know that the front fender wouldn't work..Why would you just look at Jackpot 21" wheels when there are so many other 21" brands that fit? Are you trying to match it to your rear wheel?
Yes you could cut new spacers to center the wheel, but don't forget the rotor. I believe you'll have to shim it as well....From searching the forum, it appears all that is needed are spacers to center the wheel and a new front fairing or modifying the stock fairing bracket. Can anyone confirm? Thanks!!
Ah, OK.That would be the cheaper route, but either way, any 21" front wheel, would it even work? I know that the front fender wouldn't work..
My hammer only has one rotorThere are a few things that are different from the Hammer to Jackpot/Vegas wheels. The first being that the Hammer is typically a dual rotor setup while the Vegas/Jackpot is a single rotor. Vegas/Jackpot wheels are not made to accept a rotor on the right side of the wheel. The second, as you already mentioned is the fender size and mounting setup (easily overcome). Third, (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) the hubs are different. I believe that the width between the forks on the Vegas/Jackpot is different from the Hammer.
and the rim that takes 130/70/18 ?Yes XC and Hammer S have 2 rotors and the same rim hubs.
What rim MBX? You'd have to check that in any case.and the rim that takes 130/70/18 ?
hey took my refreshed forked Vegas for a good daytime dry ride today and the front forks are magnificent feel firm but not harsh, compliant but not squishy, more surefooted all round combined with the Progressive rear.
And fork dive under heavy braking is reduced and the bike more stable under brakes.
Just as well cos an old chook in a little yellow car darted out in front of me from a Stop sign and I had to go hard on both brakes and the horn as well as change direction slightly under brakes to avoid her.
Thanks!!! Now I just need to locate a good 21" Anvil wheel to match my rear.With the exception of the old C bikes. Every Vic FRONT wheel will bolt right on every other Vic. All you need to do is figure out the fender, and brake rotors. No special spacers, or axels needed
I see the new Magnums front 21" is 3 1/2" wide and runs a 120/70/21 tyre.With the exception of the old C bikes. Every Vic FRONT wheel will bolt right on every other Vic. All you need to do is figure out the fender, and brake rotors. No special spacers, or axels needed
