r u with a 2inch bones in your pic?

if so, any rub with "2-up"?

I just moved up to the 280 club about 6 weeks ago. I wish I knew how to add the patch to my signature.

I do have the 2" lowering bones. It has bottomed out. I didn't know that it did, but the grooves in my tire told me so. I had to cut the bolts in under the rear fender. I only ride 1 up. I weigh 215-220 and left my shock at the factory setting.
Hope this helps.

you to cut all the bolts down that are under the inner fender ......and you will get some rub on the stock swingarm but just watch you air pressure and you will be OK......When I ran my 280 2.25 lowering bones and I rode two up just fine.. and yes 300 fits on a 10 inch rim..

I did have some rub on the shaft side. I used sandpaper to shave the tire down slightly, and it worked. My tire pressure is at 44psi.

you could do 38 or 40 PSI and the rub would have gone away as well.. but a little rub wont hurt... :bigthumbsup:

My 10in will be here today and the tires are already in the garage. So by next week I will be in the 280 club.

Stepping up to 300 after these fresh 280 threads wears down (guess a year from now).

A combo of 340 (wifey n I) is planned for the 2 inch bones installed, and curious if i should install or not.
