Default Fat Tire setup

I am really thinking of getting a fat tire kit for my bike. Any opinions advice on who to buy from, advice on installing, lessons learned from doing one.

Thanks

Mike

Buy from Kurt @ Sumo X I did mine two years ago and he was great to deal with . I was also a tester for his airbag lowering kit so I had him on his cell anytime I had questions and he was always willing to help no matter how long it took.

As far as advise on I stall you will need an extra set of hands I had two guys help me and I had the new swing arm tire and airbag in the bike in about an hour and a half . There is a YouTube video which was a big help . I suggest doing lowering kit and fat tire kit at same time .

Is that the lowering spring that L&M offers?

Kurt was definitely a big help when I had questions and placed my order. I pieced my kit together because I went with different wheels. The install was not bad at all. It's possible to do it by yourself but another set of hands will make life much easier. There is a video on you-tube that is definitely helpful. I had my laptop out in the garage and played it in sections while working on mine. You will definitely save a lot of money and feel better about yourself by doing it yourself. You can also use the money you saved for another mod . Have fun.

No Kurt sells a lowering airbag system . When I installed fat tire set up and lowering airbag I already had the L&M lowering spring in bike which I had to take out and replace with stock spring because of fender tire clearance issues . Let me see if I can find some old threads on this .
