well, the shivers already have the 205mm adaptor on it, as it was running them. im thinking 205mm rear/225mm front :twisted:

its a huge bike, so huge discs wont look out of place.

You may find you have a little too much fork on there.

rear should have 5'' - 6'' soon, fox float rear shock on the way next week with some luck.

custom built brand new set of wheels coming next week too :wink:

rear XT mech on today, forks fitted and new star nut in, waiting on a short stem to finish off.

then brakes.

heres what it would look like with a 8'' rear rotor. still loads of room with the swingarm.

looks good :d

if you put 190mm on the front and the longer shock on the back it will compensate it, BB will go up a bit though which should be good fun.

How long is the rear shock eye to eye?
