You know I think that the tire calculater isn't right. That 21” tire is around 5” taller than the stocker when I put them side by side. So now im gunna have to put the new and old tire next to each other and see if those are close to each other. Maybe I can just raise the front 1” and keep my progresive springs.
If your running 120/70-21 now and stock is 130/90-16.... then your new 21 front is 2.4" taller then the 16 front. There is 5in difference in wheel height, but you lose some of that by running the lower profile tire.
I can handle going fast. Its the crashing and burning that sucks!

No I mean tire next to tire the 21” is like 5” tall than the 16” tire so the total outside dia.
ok so in a effort to keep my progresive springs in i removed the second set of top out springs so now its a 1" drop and i cut longer spacers and added a 1/2" to the overall lenght to compensate for the wieght of the fairing. now i need to call DNA and find out whats going on with my belt pulley.
