    Do you know if it'll go across the pits with those on? Also what size are they?

    Yes it can go over the pits with them, they are road legal and you'll have put DOT approved tyres on them so not a problem.

    17" x 3.5" front fits a 120 front tyre
    17" x 5" rear fits a 160 rear tyre

    You'll need to swap your existing brake discs and sprocket over.

    It's recommended to upgrade the front disc to a 320mm and use an adaptor bracket to reuse your brake caliper. These are usually around $300 in a kit.

    No stress dude, they're not going anywhere.
    I might have other parts that'll interest you when I rummage through the boxes.

    Thanks Wozza.

    Yes I got taken out on the 11th of Nov.

    Pictures of the car I hit, my helmet and me in the neckbrace. Sore but happy to still be walking and alive.

    Big thankyou is in order to all the people who helped at the scene, the paramedics and emergency dept., Potato for helping out with the insurance quotes and stuff as well as the crew at Overlander adventure equipment. Cant thank everyone enough.

    Big lesson for everyone to take away from this is not to be tough and think about leaving after the accident. I thought I had just pulled my back muscles, turned out I had actually fractured 3 vertebrae in my spine. A very kindly mum type lady stopped me at the scene and made me wait for the paramedics. So when the paramedics arrived they quickly put me on a bed and braced my neck, pretty thankful that angel was there to help me.

    Im 2 n 1/2 mnths into recovery now and it is up and down but I am still happy. Hopefully will recover but still early. I had only gone for my first run in 2 yrs after my last back injury the day before the accident. Talk about bad luck.

    I finally got the purte brake adapter Crobbo. Looks the goods. Once Im feeling better I will put it all together again . Not sure if I will jump back on but see how it goes. I think most would think Im crazy but I still miss riding.

    If you are wondering the crash was a smidsy with the car coming from the other direction turning in front of me to go down a side street.

    Chuck Steak, if you go the supermoto XR i might have the Braking front caliper that suits the XR RWU forks for sale. Will be a while before I get around to test my SXV radial caliper setup but seems like that will suit you anyway. Just send a message if you think you might need it.

    Holy crap... lucky and glad you're still with us.
