Well, Kosman has received my wheel and the 240 mod has begun. After much research on this site, talk and consideration (thanks Duke), I'm going with the 18"x8" wheel. I'm going to run the Dunlop 240 and do the swingarm mod myself. I can't see justifying the extra $$ and swingarm work at this time for the metz 240 with so little size difference from the Dunlop. I pondered going with the 260, but can't lose the handling and agility this bike has to offer. I am getting the wheel back unfinished and will see how it looks before I see about having it powdercoated. Don't get me wrong, I still reserve the right at anytime to go as big as they make.Gotta love the Warrior platform!!
