I haven’t heard of anyone here doing it, but I have been told that they’ve been doing this a long time and do good work.

I believe they have been doing this for 30+ years and have highest industry reputation. If I remember correctly they have not had one failure of a rim due to their work.

I have about 3 projects going right now with the Fury, if you want to do this... please feel free... I will be trying this in about 2 to 3 months (unless I get lucky and my finances bless me, then RC... might even chop up their rim if they don't come up with a 7" rim though, or I'll shop around since it seems that they don't actually make "Fury" rims)....

I've spoken to Kosman about this and it seems like a fairly simple process. They stand by their work 100% and the more important fact to consider in this mod is that the wheel is true after widening and they guarantee that also. It's also my understanding that you'll need someone to grind the weld/seam smooth if you plan on chroming, painting or powder coating although the seam is rightly done at Kosman. Basically, the wheel is ready to be used without further prepping right after it's shipped back to you if you wanted. Right now turn around is 4-6 weeks. Keep in mind the tire is still going to be 220mm not 240mm when done. So, by the time you complete the mod, buy the 240 tire and chrome both wheels to match your probably around 2k and might as well go with the Sumo 250 kit for a few $$$ more.

I agree with noscycle2 on this one. I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made.

I will be doing this mod some time this fall (down time to long!) $450 to widen and $700 to chrome both wheels and the tire $120.= alot cheaper than fat tire kit. I would much rather have the fat tire kit but after the $$ for the kit price to paint and install just out of my league.

It is stated on the video... watch the video again, that total cost will be around 700$ bro (minus chroming)...

I never had done this, but it is old school and has been done for years... Most all GS1100 Suzuki drag bikes have had this done, I have seen the wheels and they look good and never herd of any problems....

Seams like a cool idea I'm going to think about for next year if I don't go with a 240 kit....

Or just buy a 7" wheel if I don't get a full kit, but why just go half way....

Most likely I'll stay stock or go to a 240 kit.... but it's a cool idea.....

Hey All, New to the forum, I just purchased my Honda Fury last thursday. I love it and will ride it till the end of time. Just curious if theres a way to get a fat tire on there without spending 3,000$ on the fat tire kits??

It's actually closer to $3,500-3,800 when you add up turn signals, sidemount, paint for the fender, and paint or polish for the swingarm. It can easily go above $5,000 with chrome struts, wheels, and swingarm.

Aye, it will only take about 700$-800$ to go to a 240/220 kit... The others didn't notice you said 240, not 250... so, if you have a little spare change, instead of getting that new set of pipes, you could start off with the 240 upgrade instead or save up and go with the upgrade later... Here's the vid:

I wonder if Honda or someone else will realize (if honda allows) there is a market for a 7 inch Fury rim so you can mount 240 tire without any issues about bulging of tire. :confused:
