I thought of another thing, I was able to get the stock rim with 240 tire back on the bike without deflating the tire. I thought that I read that folks had to deflate to get the wheel/tire back on the bike.

I simply lifted the bike and lowered it down with the wheel/tire under the swingarm.

I am still very shocked at how easy it was. I am confident that I could do it in 10 minutes if I had to do it again.

Put about 50 miles on it since mounting back on the bike so I am pleased.

Honda should have known and either made the bike this way or made it wide enough to allow people to put bigger tires on
Victory has a Hammer 8-ball stock with a 250 rear and it looks bad-ass

I have about 120 miles now on my new 240 with the stock wheel and I am 100% sold! What a difference!

I am interested in this as well. Exactly what difference have you noticed? I have asked this before and been told that it increases potential lean angle. I know that this isn't true as the tire width is an incredibly small part of that equation the largest being possible drag parts such as the pegs.

I think I might like the looks, but I wonder what your experience is.

Im trying to pinpoint the words that properly describe it. I have since made changes to the suspension so I may not be able to give an accurate description anymore but.... I did about 100 miles on the old suspension with the new tire so I can speak on that without a doubt.

I paid $212 for the 240 metzler 888 from jp cycles. It looks better than the old tire too
