K12 Wheel Conversion
I decided to install K12 wheels on my '96 K11RS. The front is a K12LT wheel (picked it because it is stronger then the 12RS) and the rear is a wide K12RS. It requires machining the fork sliders, shortening the front axle and fabricating front and rear spacers. The rear is relatively simple....but does lower the bike when going from an 18" wheel to a 17". We've temporary compensated by lowering the forks about ½".....she looks a little like she's got some dragster heritage at this point. The Fox shock doesn't have adjustment for shock length, so I've ordered a Ohlin to help get the back end up to it's proper height....at which time I will readjust the forks to proper height as well.
