    Anyone here converted their Daytona 1000 to a 17" rear wheel or know anyone that has? I am curious what a conversion would entail.

    Answer: Research!
    I assume you are after a better choice of tyre.

    Are you chasing a wider rear rim for wider tyres?
    Be careful, my past experience with Guzzi's is they handle better on stock tyre widths.

    Do you want a lighter wheel as well?
    Check Ghezzi & Brian mods using OZ wheels. $$$

    Where is the cush drive in your bike, transmission or rear wheel?
    Research.

    I would assume V11 rear wheel would go close, disc to brake caliper alignment is another consideration.
    Research.
