Since you are putting a 280 on there, I assume that you got the 10 inch rim. I would just to make sure that you do not scratch the new rim. Because then you will be :edit::edit: if you damage your new rim.

If you pull the hub off how would you install the wheel? Do you install the hub to the wheel then slide it back into the shaft? Just wondering because I am getting ready to do the same thing.

You can try and loosen the rear hub. I do that even with my 250. That might give you the clearance. But if you had to go that way I would think that you would make the wheel hub and swing arm and then put it into the secondary. PM LTT I know he has done it with his PHAT 300.

If you have the 280 on 10"wheel,you need to grind the inner part of your driveshaft 1/8 of an inch and paint it.... There is no clearance on the hub side..just grind a 1-2" area where the rim and tire edge passes the shaft...it's really tight,I wish now I would have just bit the bullet and bought the bigger swing arm...

Yes you will need to remove the hub. Some people have done it without but I wouldn't recommend it, it is way too tight and you take a big chance scratching your rims. I also used painters tape around the lip of the rim just in case. I didn't have to grind or paint anything nor have I heard of anyone else doing that but to each thy own.......Good luck!

If you have long pipes then you can either remove the hub or remove the pipes. If you have short pipes then you dont have to remove the hub. Just loosen the hub where it has a little bit of play, remove EVERYTHING. spacers, rotor and the whole caliper bracket. When putting the wheel in, slide it in from the RIGHT side on a angle with the RIGHT side of the swing arm inside the wheel. Once you get the LEFT side past the flange of the LEFT side of the swing arm you can straighten the wheel in and start putting the drive shaft into the swing arm. Put everything back together and your good.

EDIT for corrections

There is a trick to it. Takes 2 people. Youll need a hook pick, best one that works is one that has two 45 turns on it, and a flash light. Pull the dust cover back and use the hook to hold the U joint stright and shine the flash light in the swing arm to get an idea or what your aiming at. Should slide right in after a couple trys.

I pull my final drive hub to install and remove my rear wheel. To install ur wheel, pull ur final drive hub, remove chrome side covers, and remover your secondary drive. Its held on by 4 bolts and a sensor. Put your wheel in place, slide final drive hub in and place acorn nuts on only a few threads, leaving some wiggle room. Place u joint on propellar shaft, slide secondary drive on u joint and into place on motor. Bolt. Down 4 bolts and sensor. Line up wheel with final gear, slide axle through, dont forget crush tube and swingarm spacer. Tq down, bolt down acorn nuts, put on chrome covers.
