17 inch spoked wheel

I'm thinking of changing the 19'' front wheel to 17''
I am looking for people who have done that and there experience
- costs
- how does the 955i handle after the change
- anything which could make the change easier

thanks in advance

Chris Canning on tigertriple has done this and has loads of experience with the 17 inch front.

Personally I like the slower steering of the 19 incher.
