A lot of people say that about our 240slawdog said:I think that one is "overcompensating" for lackage in other areasÂ if you need a tire that big.
I guess we could compare if you like but I'm pretty sure I'm just an average guy, no short comings that I've heard about anyway. :redfaced:lawdog said:I think that one is "overcompensating" for lackage in other areas if you need a tire that big.
The kit comes with everything you need to bolt it up. There is no mods to the swingarm. The wheel and hub are the only thing that changes besides the tire.VINNIE1209 said:DO YOU HAVE TO DO ANY MODS TO FIT THE 280 ON THE BACK :
Yeah, but I find it hard to justify shelling out over $2000 just for looks. The 240 didn't cost me any extra. And yes, I know it is added in to the cost of the bike, but you know what I mean. Don't get me wrong... I love the 280. Would love to have it sitting out back. I just cant justify the cost. Plus, I know that everybody says that there isn't a difference in handling going from 240 to 280 since it's only 40mm, but I don't see how this is so. With that mentality, it should be no different going from a 280 to a 330 since it's only 50mm difference. Since 330 is the same as 280 which is the same as 240, then riding the 330 should be like riding the 240, right? I don't think so.L-Train said:A lot of people say that about our 240s
then you might as well go 190 to 280 for looks.
Oh, I have no doubt it's expensive to make and is probably worth the money. I just can't personally justify that much money for an upgraded look. Maybe if I was taking a 180 rear up to 280 it might be worth it for the huge upgrade in size, but for 40mm increase.... I can't see it. It sure looks great though, and I would definitely drool all over it if I saw one in person.moto said:You know I'm not real sure, but i think the reason its so expensive is they have too start with a block of billet and cnc the wheel.
