I could mount any 21" wheel to the DRZ forks i would have to make new wheel spacers and brake mount but the rotor on a dirt bike wheel is not big enough to stop this heavy bike, and i do not want to run tubes. This bike is good on dirt, gravel, pavement but stay out of the deep mud.. This might piss some people off but IMO no matter what you do it will never be a dirt bike just like the big BMW GS, VERSYS, V STROM will never be a dirt bike.
