Question 2016 RGS with either 23" or 26" wheel

Hello all,

I know it's not for everyone but I really like the look of the 23" and 26" wheels. I've been reading up all weekend and it seems that there's several bolt-on kits to accommodate these wheels but either the data out there is aged or many of the websites have not been updated. I understand that a 23" is usually just new trees, and lowering the front an inch through something like monotubes. The 26" requires either a bolt-on rake kit or a weld-on kit.

Here are my requirements.

Must work with a 2016 RGS
Must work with ABS
Must be a Bolt-on (I know that the weld on ones seem to have a better ride but it's not for me.)

Preference would be a 26" wheel though I can live with a 23". Bigger is better right :-)

Brands I have looked up:

MC Baggers
Tricky Trees
American Suspension

Is it a pipe dream to have a 26" wheel, ABS and bolt-on?

Thanks in advance!

GO with American suspension. They have a nice kit similar to my Kewl Metal one.
Don't believe the nay-sayers that weld on is the only way. It's BS!

My 26" kit runs awesome and dead straight well over 100mph riding double.
