What is everyone looking for in the lowering kit. Post are all over the board on this and I cant tell if half of you want to ride with the bike lowered & the other half just want the "slammed" look when parked.

Myself after thinking about it dont really need a (Slammed Look) Just think if the bike sat a little lower in the rear it would really add to the look It would really help us poor guys in not going with the big tire kit...:D

I would be more for the air ride at this point but I would agree with both Sea Dawg and Sundance. The profile of the bike would look a lot nicer if it could somehow be lowered and probably should have been from the factory but it would now only be feasible if the costs of such a new modification could be justified and supported by the costs. Although its a nice option and another nice feature I'm still not convinced that the air ride is the only solution to this problem and think for a quicker and lesser expense more interest should be focused directly on the rear fender itself with modifications in the fender for closing that flawed gap.

I'm with Dave. For the ride I really like the stock setup. If the concentration was on the rear fender in order to close that awful gap ... I would be happy.
:)

1. Save Money
2. Keep the ride
3. Get the look :cool:

As much as I weigh, the bike sinks down plenty far. If even that rear fender didn't stick out so far, it would look much better. That long rear fender is the worst part of the bike aesthetically speaking. It looks like they screwed up and moved it several inches too far backward. I guess I agree with the other three about modifying or replacing the rear fender. I know there is a metal frame underneath, but there has to be a way to change the plastic fender on top.

Come on Kurt, Stump, let's get an aftermarket fender for those not wanting to invest in the entire wide tire kit. Appreciatecha.
Stump is not in the fender making business...not yet anyway. Though is is probably one of the largest Sumo-X distributors.

Kurt has already said that it would require you to cut the frame no different than his 250 fender and it would probably cost exactly the same as the 250 fender (though you don't need a wheel or swingarm so you'll save on that). But when he asked how many Fury owners were willing to cut their frame up for a low profile 200 fender no one spoke up.

Don't know what a Sumo-X Fury fender goes for but it's probably at least as much if not more than a VTX one which is ~$700 unpainted. Still interested? Call Kurt.

You hit the nail on the head...

I have to agree with all of ya on a rear fender before a suspension change. Not looking for a major change but something to close that space up a little. :cool:

Now that you mention that, the Sumo-X 250 fender doesn't look all that much wider externally then the stock Fury Fender. Richard can you take a tape measure to it?

My bike is still in the shop. I will be sure to get it the next time I'm up there. When I am sitting on the bike, I can barely get my finger between the tire and fender. I beleive the tire is 10".

200mm = 7.9 inches, 250mm = ~10 inches

The difference though is that underneath stock fender is full off fender rails and supports whereas the Sumo-X is completely hollow. I'm asking about the external measurement not the internal one.

My point is that the stock fender doesn't look that much skinner than the Sumo-X one. And like 7point said you can just use the stock 200 with it and get a low profile fender tomorrow if you wanted it. The added benefit is you can upgrade to a full 250 kit when you save enough money.
