Nope. Either get the swing arm for a 300 or you can get the stock swing arm notched out OR you can just shave down the 300 to a 280 and it'll fit :bigthumbsup:

Thanks vinnie, whats aswingarm cost
It isn't cheap and most of the recent 300 club members had some modifications to do to the swing arm to get it to work. Go with the 280 for the cost of a rim and tire unless you want to spend the extra money (usually $2,000-$3,000 total) on 20 mm of extra rubber.

part 3 .....I'm sure there are even more details to
be considered so I'm hoping more people will give their opinion
in your thread , this way I can add to my personnal
knowledge before attacking this project .
..
..
specially about drifting the wheel a little to the right
to give more space to the tire on left side ,
this detail is strill unclear to me.

this is great info, you guys are great help, for now i'll go with the 280, what kind of problems will I have with this mod? I also have a small dent on my factory rim, do I fix it with a hammer and wooden block or do I need to have it rolled

You do not put a 280 on the factory rim, unless you are wanting to see some really nasty looking tread wear.

1. Mod swing arm.and fender. (No problem for a welder fabricator) $.0
2. Shim for after market hub.( machinest friend) $.0
3. Coastal moto rims/tires, 18x10"300 metz. $2600.00
1 1/2 bones Lowered, 7500miles no problems.
Here the $1000.00 swing arm needs more mods to make it work.
jdmitchell you are right 280 lot cheaper and a lot easier.
I went to a bike night in cincinnati. There was over 3000 bikes! 85% harleys. My 109 had the fatest tire there. People acted like they never seen a fat chromed out 109 before, I never seen so many pictures taken of one bike. Thats what I call priceless.:bigthumbsup:
Good luck Bros
