in theory, yes but why? it wouldnt be the same if you done that.
You would need forks and swingarm to do it, duno about prices but still, why?

There's a mob near where i live that sell 125 and 140cc pittys with big wheels on them. So i am not sure if they use bigger swing arms and forks but they run 14/17 and sit pretty high at 900mm.

So maybe you could give them a call and see what needs to be done to get the height your after.

The link is Urban X Motos ...............Quad Bikes, Dirt Bikes & Mountain Bikes - Home and the bike i am talking about is the x-moto big wheel

yes it can be done... why though? thats my question, id be down sizing XD
depending on how much of a change you wanted, like if its only a jump or two say from a 10" to a 12" yeh that would probbly bolt straight on but when u start make rapered changes like from a 10" to a 17" or something your gunna have to start changing things like Custom said. swingarm, front fork, and little things to probbly wont fit..

in the end your changing the complete look and feel or your bike and it all comes down to money and how much you want to pay! ;) but stick with 10/10 XD buy 10/10 =)

sweet ok, yeah i was going to buy a bike from a shop. but my parents though the bike was to small. and the guy says "well sell you the bigger wheels"

didnt get told how much though

and the shop was dodgy, we rang them and they said they have finance, got there and they didnt .

some moto shop in capalaba,brisbane.

bargain 6 bux^^ can't get any cheaper. I would be ringing dirt bike wreckers and trying to find a longer fork to fit the clamps. something from a yz80 or something will prob fit
