Changing my AT tyres and I spied a 17" front off my cbr600 track bike.......it fitted and with some fettling of the mudguard a 120/70 will go in....so I've got some spare wheels and I'll get the rims changed and give it a go, I think a 19" front may be better for road use but won't hurt to try a 17"

Not yet, I’ll take one when I get the rim put on the spare hubs, going to try 17” front with standard rear. If it works I’ll put the rear in too but if not I’ll go with a 19” front for road tyres and keep the off road tyres on the original wheels and swap when needed only takes 5mins

You can fit a lot of wheels on the AT , get this work properly it´s the main problem.

I wouldn't mind a more road friendly front tyre/wheel at some point in the future... But once again, this is one of those things that will be resolved over time with a proper solution - as these bikes increase in popularity and the after market people realise there is a demand that they can satisfy.
