To help speed up the process of people having to send me a PM then wait for a response I thought I would put my prices and how the process works to take out some of the guess work or common questions. Of course feel free to call 775-351-8221(Kyle) this is my cell and I have it on me at all times.

Pricing:
240/250/260 raw swingarm $469
with powder coat finish $569

280 raw swingarm $679
with powder coat finish $779

Hidden Brake Caliper Brackets:
Raw with visible weld $85
Raw with smooth weld finish $105

Modified wheels
raw wheel with visible weld $695
raw wheel with smooth weld $845

These are exchange prices. You can send your stock parts and I can modify them for you (2-3 week turn around time) or you can pay a refundable core charge and I can send you parts that are in stock that I have already modified. I will need you to send your stock items back in good working order with useable bearings and no damage. After inspection I will refund the core charge.
Core Fee By Item:
swingarms $300
brake brackets $200
wheels $250


Bearing install: I will remove your bearings and inspect them. As long as I don't see any problems I can install them into your newly modified items before return shipping.

I do not offer a 240 only arm. I have tried to keep my 260 affordable enough that anyone doing a 240 might as well buy this for the extra clearance and option of running a larger tire if you should ever feel the need to go bigger.

Think this just about covers everything. You can also go to my vendor section. There is tons of information, pictures, member feedback, and more of me rambling on and on about every warrior getting a fat tire:D
If you guys see anything that does not make sense, my spelling was just horrible, or information you think I should add to make this more helpful please send me a PM or post in this thread so I can clean it up and make this as easy as possible for new members and those of you that have still not gone FAT!!!

Pumped up!
Me and Christok have been wanting to do something custom for a 280-300 tire. We found a great member who has decided to let us do this for him. So I built his arm and hidden caliper and wheel and Christok is going to begain work on a stock style fender but 2"shorter and showing off more of the huge tire. It's gonna be great. Soon as I get my 280 arms back from powder I will post some pictures. But I can tell you they are overkill. The right side gets cut out and a 280 clears like it's stock. The cool part is I have a shop making 1/4" 6061 outer arms,,,,let my try to explain. The right side outer now has a solid outer area so no more stock 1/8" stuff. This side of the arm is huge and solid aluminum so strength is never ever ever going to be an issue and it looks stock, of course stock welds never looked so good.
Also a member that had some one off wheels made will be getting a swingarm in the mail next week and I have twisted his arm and am trying to make him promise to post lots of pictures so we can all be jealous and drool over his 2K$$$ plus rims.
That's all was just excited about these two things. And finally getting to work with Christok as we have wanted to do something cool but have both been busy. So stay tuned as there are plans for swingarm mounted fenders, and stock widened and 2" shorter, and also I believe some serious shorty style pro-street fenders all at affordable prices and working perfectly with my 240/250/260/280 swingarm kits.

Hi,
With the left and ride side you have different concerns. The right side is cut so much differently. This is why we put so much time into building this area up. On the left you remove material but usually are not touching the stock arm(the actual arm that the wheel bolts to) itself, just building it up and keeping it reinforced with the stock shock mount/swingarm brace. I have tons of pictures in my other threads. I also will be posting a bunch of new ones in this thread soon, after work I will try and snap a couple to clear this up a little.
Is that your bike in the avatar?

Do you have a pic of the modified wheel? Do you need to modify the wheel to go to the hidden caliper or a 240 tire?

Thanks Robert!
nothing is needed for a hidden caliper bracket besides the bracket and about and hour of your time.
I have so many pictures I'm going to start a thread of just random stuff in just a second. I will post up the link soon as I finish

Kyle/Christo!

Boys this is exciting to see you 2 guys colaborating on these components. FYI, I will certainluy be in the market for a swing arm mounted rear fender so I can get that fender as tight to the 240 as possible.

I know one thing for sure Christo's glass work is top notch!. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with....

all that said, I think it's time to move with the hidden caliper. I'll be in touch Kyle......g

Thanks for the support and purchase!
It is exciting for sure, this is going to bring 280 kits to an affordable range for anyone thinking of doing this. Before you were going to spend at least as I see it $2500, I am thinking when all is said and done we will be able to keep this under $2000 for the whole thing, fender,swingarm,rim,pulley spacer,etc....How can you beat that? wait you can't

I have several 280 arms, and a couple 260 swingarms that are ready to ship. My 280 arms come with free rear pulley spacers saving you and extra $150.
We gotta' get on Christo to post some new pictures to his thread as there are a few 280 fenders out there including a chopper style and Euro fender which both look Awesome!

I have never tried, I believe years ago a few people were actually using the stock fender and raising the bike a tad for some reason?? maybe handling, maybe just to get by using the stock fender...I always suggest talking to Christok as we have been working together to make these kits super affordable, at least to what they were costing. He can do any style custom fender for around $250 or less and you get a one of a kind fender. Of course talk with him about weight limits, cost,turn around,etc.

The Metzeler 280 is 10.91" wide. The widest part of the rear fender inside-to-inside seems to be ~10.9" and it narrows toward the tail light. Add the tire's 25.79" diameter and without raising the fender up for added clearance guys seem to rip the rear fender off, wiring and all.

BTW I don't believe the rear wheel is designed exactly centered in the fender cavity, and the offset amount ruins any chance of lowering the fender again.

The Metzeler 260 is the same diameter but only 10.19" wide, and fills-up the rear fender nicely.

I forget, is it possible to do 280 on the stock fender?

Rob ... yes it is with some modifications. Search for 280 in the FatBa$tards from the early days and their solutions by checking the galleries and or threads of those early members.

The Metzeler 280/35r18 is a low profile tire and doesn't stand tall! .... it has a smaller OD than the 240/40r18 Dunlop Elite 3 and is the same mounted OD as the Metzeler 240/40r18 :)



To put this into perspective it is 7/16" taller than the stock Battlax BT020 and taillight/wiring clearances aren't any more challenging than the 240 tires. Spacing the fender stays and reshaping the fender skirt were some solutions that come to mind.

Here's a jpeg of '04' & > inner fender for ref:

I saw Gilly's post in the tire tech detail topic (linked above) last night, and corrected the 280 details posted there including OD, and shoulda stayed awake long enough to correct the OD here too! Figured I'd do it this morning, and glad its done!
