a 280 is the maximum size rear tire that will fit the stock swingarm setup, and it can be a bit tedious getting it to fit.

a 300 will require a totally new swingarm.

I didn't say that...and you'll get mixed opinions. Personally, I wouldn't run a 280 on a stock rim.

If I were gonna go fatter I would definately go 280. I just don't see that much difference between the 280 and the 300 and there's a lot more expense / tweak to do the 300. JMO...

If your going with the 280 you got to take the air out of the tire to slide it into the swing arm. Slides in like a boot to your foot. I use my hands to line it up and my knee to put it in so you don't puck up the rim.

I had a stealer take my 280 off. I look in the back room and the got my shaft off. Told the guy at the desk. Why did they take my shaft off the bike?
The guy runs to the back room and comes back and tells me the tire would not slide out. So i tell him all you got to do is take the air out. So the worked on getting it back if for a 1/2 hr. Man them boys are bright.

Metzler 260, a Dunlop 250, or Avon 250 is the biggest you can go on a standard 8in rim

stock rim you can run a 240, 250 or 260 tire with the stock swingarm..

10 inch rim you can run a 280 with stock swingarm..

10 inch rim, DLP swingarm or notched swingarm you can run a 300 ... plus u will have to work the inner fender....
:bigthumbsup: Clear as mudd.... lol
