Weighed those F2 wheels vs normal spoked LC4 wheels? I would think they would be substantially heavier.

Having the sprocket on the other side of the wheel to accomodate the different chain location would require flipping the wheel around giving the impression the spokes are going the wrong direction.

They could be heavier. :O The bike was bought new as a EXC so it came with the 21 front and 18 rear. It was gunna cost about $2000 AUS for orig 17 wheels from KTM.
I hooked up with a guy who had this set up Wheels, tyres, disk, caliper and shims for a tidy sum of $550AUS:)

Yeah it looks shit too.:coocoo
Those photos were taken as soon as the wheels went on.
The orig fork guards were to wide so we had to cut them down, but now there crap for the bush so another sets on its way.
