Hey fellas,

I’m already getting a relaced 21” front wheel from Buchanan’s.

I’m wondering what is the largest rear wheel I can go with. I’m going to modify this 2006 c50 as a bagger.

Have baggerbags.com hard bags, ape hangers, and am currently getting g bike painted.

Just wondering if anyone has relaced a wheel to like a 18-20” rear wheel.

Thanks!

No. You cannot fit a larger wheel on the back of the bike. In fact, the largest tire you can fit is a 200mm, but that is only if you have the suspension set to its max setting to prevent it from bottoming out on the fender. If you have it lowered at all, it will not work, period. The issue is side clearance, as there is only about 3.5 mm between the sidewall and the propeller shaft housing.

Besides, there are no aftermaket rear wheels that we are aware of. The shaft drive is unique to Suzuki and they don't sell all that many C50s to justify any sort of production demand.
