Hi all - has anyone had any experience in or know of anyone who has changed the 12" Piaggio front wheels on a 2009 Piaggio MP3 400ie to 13" ? I'm curious to know if it is possible and if so is it a matter of simply taking off the 12" and bolting on the 13" wheels ? In the attached, I currently have the 12" and am wanting to fit the 13" that come from the 500 MP3. Thanks all.
As far as i know it's a straight swop as i did it on my fuoco and as everthing is the same wheel hub wise through the mp3/fuoco range go for it. It certainly looks better with the 13" and on both mine and 2 other owners who have done this on there fuoco's it make the handling of the bike better.
Thank you, 3legsofman. When you did your change, were you able to use the existing mudguards for your 12" wheels ? and just swap the wheels ? or did you have to make mods to the 12" mudguards ?
Changed about 2 yrs ago and yes you can just use the existing mudguards. Everything is the same just put the 13" tyre as maksor says which is standard for the 13" wheel. The tyre is only about 1/2" taller overall over the 12". if you had been in the UK i could have sold you a good 13"wheel and a brand new tyre.
