I said it before when I first saw it and I'll say it again. I think Tony's mod. will get its true due respect as more time goes by and it will proven to be the #1 modification within fury owners and this forum. This mod. has dramatically changed the one flaw ion the fury that was so obvious to all. I plan on doing it the next rain weekend I have.

Undecided on what to do. I like Tony's mod, but I am not confident enough in my abilities to do that myself so it kinda takes the saving money aspect out of it for me. Love the Sumo X kit but I can't afford it and if I could my wife would have my nuts if I spent that on a mod. L&M spring I like also. I'm so confused :confused:

Tony's Mod

I have done Tony's mod. Super easy as long as you have a mig welder. I did the mod in about an hour or so, if that. Measure twice, cut once. Tack and measure it is how you want it and finish the weld. I got a little bit 'chop happy' and dropped my fender about 2.5", an extra half inch. Easy to do and looks great!

Same here Canoesmasher, I can actually walk around my entire bike and not have to ignore the back part of my bike anymore.

I voted for the Low and Mean spring because I did that already (and love the results) but I am still saving up for the Sumo kit at some point too. I would also do Tony's mod too to make it even lower, but I am uncomfortable with cutting/welding the bike myself.

can anyone that has done the mod and has a Honda backrest with pad tell me how it is, I'm interested in doing this mod but I do have my wife that rides with me on ocassion and from the pictures I have seen it seems that there is a decent amount of back lean so I'm wondering how much your significant other has complained if at all, Thanks.

Just Info, checked with local custom weld shop, if I cut the frame rails and take it to their shop and line everything up, they would charge me 100 to 125 to tig weld. If they come to me, it's + travel time.

I'm in the process of getting a custom Sissy Bar and Pad made for the wife. She feels like she needs to hold on tighter with the Rear fender lowered. I'm going through Ginz in Laguna Hills, CA.

Where is the "I will replace my rear fender when a new, cooler looking one comes out"
Thats my thought, someone needs to consider producing a rear fender that fits the cut framework. I will be cutting before long, looking for someone I trust to weld.

Bighitter: didn't you do the cut and weld and put a lowering spring in also? i'm not for sure what i'm going to do yet but just trying to see if it's going to be uncomfortable for the wife if i do that mod, if it's uncomfortable i'll probably just leave it stock as i want the lady to be comfortable also when riding, thanks.

i too plan on doing this mod, but i need to get in touch with a fellow rider at work to see if he can do it or not.

What i would like to see, a stock chopped fender! By that i mean removing 2 - 4 inches off the back end, shortening the fender itself. This would also expose more of the tire.

With so many roads in such crappy conditions where I live, in wisconsin it would definately be asking for trouble. The scoot is low enough to the ground already. And if you have to make an emergency manuever, you don't want any metal scraping the road. Tony's mod fixes the only real issue with the looks.;)

Crap,
I don't know what to do but I gotta do something. $4000 is to much, I want to do Tony's mod but I want a fatter tire. Low and means rear fender looks like the exact same size as the stock but I think they just made it cover the sides more. It needs to drop in the rear. Someone needs to make a thinner fender along with Tony's mod. That would make the tire look fatter. Yea, Someone do that and I am in.
Can't stand looking at that rear end. That's half the reason I got the swing arm bag. Make's the rear end look lower and fatter.
