That makes a lot of sense. Will you use another rim identical to the stock front, or something narrower/lighter/different in some other way?

Sorry for grilling you, I'm just very curious because I would love to put together a set of dirt wheels for my Tiger. So I'll be watching what you do with great interest.

Think I will use the Excel A 60 front
Developed for the professional racer looking for increased wheel strength and durability.
A60 front rim is available in the following size: 21 x 1.60

Why only tubeless on the rear? Rim selection? I know Sun makes a tubeless capable (still needs to be sealed but has the safety bead) 21" wheel but Woody's said it's a little on the weak side.
