Default Bigger than 240 on kosman rim

I was kinda wondering if anyone has mounted anything bigger than a 240 on a kosman modified rim. I have found people who are running a 240 on a stock wheel but can't find any info if someone has tried a bigger one yet. Anyone...... Anyone.........

Have you seen the L&M video on YouTube about the Kosman mod? There's very little room between the frame and tire. I seriously doubt you can go any larger without further modification.

But it's tight between the seat frame . The swing arm has room for maybe a 250. Was just wondering since the seat frame can be spread with a bottle jack

Look into the Sumo T-mod also.

I wouldn't want to try that without some serious heat, plus it would be easy get the seat frame out of line or twisted.

No. No. No! There's another mod I recently read a thread on called the Sumo T-mod. Basically you're going to outline your rear frame onto cardboard for a pattern. The cut that into 1/4" plating. Weld that at that base of the frame where the seat is like when installing the Sumo struts. The cut, widen, and reweld each cross brace one at a time. Finally remove the stock frame. It doesn't give much extra clearance. But it will work.

That's what I was saying! 240mm is the widest one can go without further modifying the bike.
