I have a 2013 rg-c. I currently have the 16/18 combo on it. I am really wanting to do the cvo agitator 19in front wheel. what are your thoughts on that vs going with a 21.
we like to ride at a decent pace and have some great twisty roads down into Ar.
Not based off of looks only your opinion is appreciated.
if you have a cvo front wheel shoot me a wink

My buddy runs a 21 on his RG and loves it. He says he has not noticed any difference in handling and he rides fairly hard plus has his wife on the back. Went with the 21 for looks for him.

What is your purpose for wanting a bigger wheel? Sounds like looks. I think the 21" has a better feel to it compared to the 19", both on the slab and in turns. I'm used to 21" wheels though and have had them on the last few bikes. Best thing would be to find one to test ride and see how you feel. That's really the only way to know.

the 19in tire profile will turn quicker but was concerned with a 21 running out of tire.
not looking for a big wheeled bagger but the 18 does at times feel a little heavy. A buddy put a set of the new sg wheels on his 11 sg and said he loved going from a 18 to a 19.
just thought I would ask

Both would be an improvement in my opinion. You will definitely find a better deal on 19". Tons of take offs out there. I actually have mine still on the lower shelf of the workbench. Figure I would try to sell locally to save shipping costs. If it doesn't sell locally, I'll probably just hang onto it.

I have a 21/17 setup on my 2012 Roadie, had that combo since about a year after I bought her new. I don't' feel any major differences from the old 18/16 combo. Go with the the 21" front, it'll fill the entire front factory fender without any modification. You'll love the look and you can find 21" tires easily!

There where several of us at the spring BBQ run in eureka springs with 21", you are not going to run out of tire with a 21. You will have to scrape through your boards, bags and pipes for that to happen. Go for the 21, looks much better.
