Does anyone know if you can put a set of those 1190r wheels on the std. model?

I'm thinking the same thing. Might be cool to do some more aggressive fire roads and such, which are pretty sandy in this neck of the woods. Not something you want to take on with a street tire.

I would think that it's just a matter of wheels and front fender swap; don't think the brakes/rotors are different.

Speaking of which, does the off road mode take some of the pressure off of the front brakes? I would think those dual brembos would be a liability for real off road use.

For those who are bending the rims: why not just get some HD spoke and rims laced to your stock hubs? Although I will admit, those billet orange hubs are really perrrty

The drive modes don't change the braking characteristics. The brakes are primo off road. One finger is all you need and its very controllable. Also, Off-road ABS still lets you lock the rear wheel.

Suspension front and back is shorter. There may be an issue of the wheels/front fender hitting the chassis when at full bottom. The rear on the R model may already hit the rear fender when the rubber donut on the shock is fully compressed.

So....

Yes you can have the tpms turned off if you don't want to have a dumb warning light on all the time with the new wheel set
