I am the proud owner of an '05 WR450, right now it's set up as a street legal Dual Sport, but I've got the itch to try out some super moto with the OSB Supermoto boys in Oklahoma. I've been looking at buying 17 inch wheels, but damn!! that's quite a bit of cash. I have a second set of stock wheels with Dirt tires mounted right now, Does anyone know if I can lace the rear 18 inch wheel to the front hub?
I looked pretty closely at both wheels, they seem to have the same pattern (2 spokes crossing) If I can just pay for wheel lacing and 2 tires that would be about a 1/4 of the price of new wheel sets. Thoughts?
