Has anyone tried a 7'' rim with a 240 tire on your fury? I have heard you can do this without changing the swing arm or any other modification?
I have seen this done on you tube but would like to talk to some one who has done this??

Im going with the 7" rim setup for cost. I know a guy that builds fat tire kits and has the equipment to widen rims. Waiting hear back from him on a price to do the rim, but I'm getting married in August so it might have to wait for a few months. I'll be posting the progress once I get started. If you decide to go for it let me know how it works out. Good luck with your decision.

That could be her wedding present to you!!
I have a set of RC Widdows on my bike and the rear just look small? I'm thinking of sending it out this winter to be cut and made to the 7'' with ,and re-chromed.
Some thing we just hide from our wives!!

I bought Billy's Kosman rim & used the metzler tire fills out good a little lower than stock profile no problems I believe only 1 inch less width than sumo. I have pics in my album.

1.5 inches & 2000 dollars!
Not that I wouldn't like to have 1.5 inches more.
That's what she said!!!!!
Doesn't sound like much but makes a HUGE difference. IMHO the 7" mod is a complete waste of money...you can't even tell the difference from stock wheel/tire.

That's messed up. I'll take all your money if you want, though. I can send you an old vtx1300c rear wheel that will be useless to you. Sound fair? I'll even include shipping to the UK!

Not surprising, I find that a lot with both US and UK companies. I can't understand why they just won't ship to Australia, after all I'm paying the freight. I think they are just plain lazy and couldn't be bothered filling a 6 line customs declaration form. You have no idea how hard it is to get folks from the UK to ship parts for my Ford KA2....I'd better stop now or I'll put my bloood pressure up and no selling my KA is not an option as I like it too much.

Hey Mate,

I cant say enough good things about jeff n kurt from sumo-x.
if you are that keen on buying one dont bother with the emails,
call them and have a chat in person... thats what I did
and I had my fat tyre kit plus front rim in australia in less than 4 weeks!
I know after speaking to the boys they are always flat out with work,
and I could only imagine how many emails they would get...

the freight cost $1150 to australia plus i got hit with 15% on top

But hey the qualty of there stuff is Awsome and well worth it.
