    beaker you might want to talk to fat baggers, they do alot with the 21'' fronts on touring bikes, they have told me in the past that they recommend lowering the front forks and maybe a 18'' rear, to keep trail & rake stock like, me I like the looks of the higher front end and in the past, first thing I would do when I bought a bike was to stick 8'' over tubes in the forks. You might also want to ask them about contact of the lower triple tree with the top of the front fender. Sounds cool, post some pic's when you get it up.

    Beaker, I have a 21" Renegade on my 09 SG and I left the stock wheel on the rear. I've had it on for about 8 months and I have not had any problems at all. It does raise the front end about an inch but it still looks good,:D The steering seems a little lighter and more responsive. I am going to use the Progressive drop in springs to lower the front as I like the lowered look. Idi not have to make in mods for the wheel to fit. Easy installation.

    here's a picture

    I did not have to make any mods at all. Really simple install, no problems.
