    I may have missed it after going through sticky on wheel swaps.

    Can someone who has used a 17" wheel on STOCK FORKS guide me to a fender that will work / integrate properly?

    Thank you

    Pretty sure the stock fender and location already has enough room for a 17". Here's one with a pretty tall bias tire. The fender has been re-shaped on the sides but is in the stock location.

    Ive got an 86 on my lift that is getting a Hurricane 17" front this weekend (and a Euro 17" rear). The tire is a 110/80-17. I'll update after fitment.

    What size tire are you planning on installing, 120/60-17 or 120/70-17?

    There's not another fender that I know of that mounts to the stock VFR forks.
