    So this is my case, right??
    You haven't uploaded any photos of the other side of the grey one that's why I'm asking:)
    Disk is the same as mine so maybe I don't even need it??
    Also if I put a bigger aftermarket disk like yours on the grey one, I'm going to need a spacer too, right??
    Grey tph is with 130/60-13?
    Thanks!

    Here's the 13" nrgfront wheel/disc on the grey typhoon, the disc is from donotlink pedstop and comes with caliper extension. The only thing needed was to space the caliper inwards so it lined up with disc.

    So it was mc2 with three bolts for the.front and mc3 for the rear!!

    Today I've chosen and have Metzeler Me7 fitted!! I'll give my feedback after some days and km!
    I have a little problem with my back madguard which touches on the tire but how much more, it will move away the annoying plastic part and will be sorted itself:)
    Now have you done anything with the stand?? Both wheels touch the ground and I dont have a side-stand!! I don't feel it very safe!!

    You need to weld some bits of metal to the underside of the stand to lift it a little higher, or just use the side stand.
