There are plenty of people here that would love it. Some people actually like the ride better than on the 200.
In all reality, the ride isn't that different from stock because the rim constrains the width of the tire, so from that aspect lean and turning is about the same, though the extra rubber has to go somewhere so the tire is a little taller and less stable, kind of messing with the bike geometry a bit more, though in a straight line this provides a softer ride.
The one thing to think of is the bead won't lock into the rim properly, so while the tire seals well there isn't a 'great' "backup seal" although I'm guessing there's a 'moderate' one; since this isn't a sportbike it's probably not a large issue for most.
The Darkside post has a video that explains what you'll face with mounting an over-sized tire. Is it the end of the world to put a 240 on a 200 rim? Probably not.
[I] However, I think it would be good to see a video of an MT tire as well, if nothing else to satisfy some curiosity. [SIZE=1]Vic http://youtube.com/watch?feature=related&v=gZKhoFbL7Fo#/watch?feature=related&v=gZKhoFbL7Fo [color=gray]Sent from my iPhone using Motorcycle.com Free App...

I had a blowout and my dealer put a size larger on without telling me. When I picked it up it handled kinda squirrelly so I went back. I thought something was loose. They changed back to original and problem solved. Honda spent a lot of money getting it to handle great. My advice? Change grips, exhaust, seat, handlebars but not the tires. IMHO.
Other than the look, I have yet to hear of a real improvement that a 240 would make. Someone claimed it improved your lean angle, but since geometry doesn't work that way, still no improvements known...
What I noticed on the handling is that on slow and straight, it only took an afterthought to keep the thing balanced, but on turns, it felt heavier. It's more nimble now with the 200 on there, and I won't go back.
I am going to paint a few things on the bike that are currently chrome. I really dont want to just sand on them a little and then prime and paint over the chrome. The first parts I am painting are the plastic side covers that cover the battery and shock.
Has anyone found a good way to remove...

I just bought the OEM recommended Windscreen for my 2016 Fury. I’m in the process of doing the install. Any advice? I know I had to buy a breaker bar because I couldn’t move the handlebar nuts with a standard socket set. Appreciate any pearls of wisdom.
I have a blue fury. When I bought it, it had a small chip in the paint on the tank.
I tried touching it up, but it looks like trash. I purchased two chrome tank decals from highway hawk to coverup the pencil eraser size chip. Wondering if anyone has anything similar. Pic or link would be greatly...
