You'll want a set of fork guards from on older sx (2006 works I think) or you have to trim a little from the stock ones. The shorter fatter front tire rubs the stock guards.

A properly inflated 120 rubs the guards?!

Yup, 10 seconds with a dremel fixes it though.

I mount the wheel with the tire deflated to get past the caliper.

I did that and mounted the tire and caliper on the swing arm at the same time. Made it loads easier, but I ordered the wrong fork guards so I have to wait for the right ones come in:(

Has anyone done non-spoked wheels - like, actual cast wheels? Friend showed me a pic of a 500 EXC with non-spoked solid wheels, and it looked awesome..

Marchesinis are popular if you want forged wheels:

Forged rims look great but the benefits of spoked rims outweigh the benefits of forged wheels. It is nearly impossible to true a forged wheel if it ever gets bent and they cost alot more. Spoked rims can be trued easily if bent and cost less. Imo the forged rims look better but with the price difference and unability to re-true if they were to get bent makes me lean more toward spoked rims.

True, but forged wheels = LESS WEIGHT! Now that trumps the miniscule chance of bending a wheel which by the way you can have retrued, just have to send it off to a pro to do it. Even then not that big a deal, I've raced on more then one bent wheel and it never had an affect on my lap times.

Of course the real down side to forged wheels is they're hella expensive! Heck, even cast wheels are more expensive then spoked. Hence the reason I have spoked ones.

If I was only racing/track or street only I'd put on forged. But if you like jumping curbs or doing any kind of rough road/light dirt with 17's Spokes all the way. A street tard with out spokes is a waste ImO.

Meh, I did a lot more curb jumping and rough road riding with my Strom and it's cast wheels. We're talking a 475 LB bike and it never damaged the wheels. Cast/forged wheels are a lot tougher then you think. But hey, I'd go with the spokes because like I said, they're cheaper, not because I'm afraid of bending cast/forged wheels.
