Motard what if?

Lets suppose that when I get a WR450, I want to go a little Motard with it. I say a little, because I don't know if I'd be changing the suspention. Lets say just a second set of wheels and tires, 17". It'd be cool to be able to take the knobbies off and have a set of 17 inch Pilot Powers on in less than an hour. Is that possible? I've poked around a bit. Who is the best supplier and source of info for such a project?

They helped me set up my CRF250X "Street Tard" wheels/tires/oversize front brake set up.

From this ultra fun off-roader:



To this California street legal menace:









Yes. . .it's the same bike!

You can buy a complete kit for the WR450 and still be able to convert back to dirt when you want.

Thinking about going this route with my 2008 WR450F
