Warp9 is on the inexpensive side as far as supermoto wheels go

I have no clue what diameter front axle you have, maybe there's a dirtbike that uses the same diameter and you can find a used front supermoto wheel or something

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

It seems like used KTM supermoto wheels are the most abundant and cheapest. I've always bought my wheel sets for $450-600 depending if they have a cush drive or come with rotors.

yeah, and with the 26mm front axle they used to use I bet the ZX6 forks use a smaller one so you could just come up with spacers that go into the bearings

custom spacers and axle bolt?
I put a 19" spoked rim in a set of GSXR forks on a SOHC CB750 once. Like Junkie said, it's just a job of making axle and brake adapters. I got lucky and found some Ducati rotors ( correct diameter to jive with the cliper placement) that had the same bolt spacing for mounting to the hubs, so I just had to to space the rotors out. But you run in to some serious clearance issues. The tire is just too damn big and the modern yokes don't have near as much offset as the older bikes used. It was sketchy and I was gonna take it apart, but another guy had to have it so I sold it as is. He's still riding it, so maybe it's not as sketchy as I felt it was, but you could bottom the tire in to the header tubes pretty easily.

It does help (some) with the ground clearance issues related to modern forks on old UJM's, but you gotta keep an eye on the tire clearance.

If you want to go for it I'd be happy to help you out with lathing up spacers. If interested shoot me a PM and we can talk/text about what you need.

Rabies, if you want to shop for cheapish 17" rims,KLR 650 uses a 17" rear rim. I forget the spoke count right now, but it'll hold a 120 or so front tire easily. Much cheaper than other options if you can work out the spoke length without needing $100+ custom spokes made.
