New Shoes for the 450

Brought the tard in to Motorcycles Unlimited for a new clutch and went ahead and had them lace up some 17's to my stock hubs and wrap them with some Pirelli MT-60R's.
Now when I want to do some motosplorin', I can just swap wheels..

Can't wait to try these things out!

You'd have to call Motorcycles Unlimited and get a quote.
I'll say this though. After watching all the mess Scott went through, I'm glad I let them do it.
The hubs had to be drilled out slightly to accomidate the heavy duty spokes among other things.
I probably could have done it myself, but I don't have the time nor patience.
In all honesty, unless you are gonna do the labor yourself, it might be more cost effective to sell your stock wheels and buy a ready to roll set of wheels/hubs.
