Hey Al,
You do not need to preach to me about the benefits of a 21" front wheel. I love them.
The only reason for the mention of possibly doing a 19" front is to keep the look and styling more like that old XLCH with the high ground clearance kit on it. More of a real scrambler look.

He has an issue with rear wheel travel maximums {barring serious mods} so having a big front wheel and long travel front may not only look odd, it may cause an unbalanced feel and handling.

I would not pick on him for whatever choice he would make, just making some possible options known to try and be helpful.

A 19" and a bit less fork travel would level out the bike lessening that chopper look the stock sporty has already.

Just post up some more pics there Ginger Bread
