Default Fat back tire

I was told you can get a swing arm off of a raider and run a 240 without any modifications.. Is this true?

Use the search function and do some reading bro.

A couple of members have done it

If your tire is less than 11 inches at the tread the stock swing arm will do.



I measured the gap in the swing arm to be around 12 inches and will be throwing on a AS 225/45-R17XL (W64) Flat and Fat CT/DS Tire on my stock bike. The tire measures in at just under 10 inches wide at the tread.


Any wider and you should search out a Raider swing arm swap out or the custom swing arms online. EXPENSIVE!



I tell you if you put any bigger tire than a 235 on your bike it is really going to look like a balloon tire on the back. I was surprised with my 225.
