Howdy folks
Just asking if anyone knows if changing the wheel size on my 850 16' rear and 19 front the the earlier 750cc wheel sizes would be a easy fit??

Would this change my speed to a noticeable degree?

Most importantly will change have a positive effect on handling?

This bike is a Cafe so it is lighter, she dos'nt handle horribly but more speed and stability through bends is also welcome. I am about to do the forks with seals and Racetech valves and a steering damper will go on as well.If I did fit different forks/ front end they would likely be a much later conventional cartridge fork... upsidedowns don't appeal to me. The rear shocks are cheap remote reservoir units from the Orient.

Thanks Chiz
