So, you still running that front tire, and if so how's it working/handling?Doesn’t look like much to me.
Second pic shows the small plastic tab that the metal inner frame pushes against. The clearance is minimal, but no marks on rubber despite the fender vibrating noticeably more at speed without that frame in place.
Third pic shows old rubber pre tire change... prolly could’ve gotten a few thousand more miles out of it, eh? ?

No shame in taking it to the tyre shop to get it done. I have a buddy of mine who changed his own tyres on his Fury. After that he told me he would never do it again and he will take it to a tyre or bike shop next time. For the small amount they charge to fit the tyres it's not worth your time to stuff around in your garage if you don't have to.That video was like a hidden camera mockumentary of my trials and tribulations…
Thankfully, today I took the wheel to this shop (moderntirect.com) near my work and they worked their magic with Bead Sealer (a rubber solution).
Wheel is back on the Fury and now I can move on to evaluating the Bridgestone Exedra!
Thanks again to those who offered help (and those who offered comic relief)!
I find the handling superior.If I may ask why did you change from the stock front size?
