We are starting to accumulate some parts that are due into stock shortly for the M109R.

You can see what is listed by going to:

www.directlineparts.com

and then click on the M109 button.

Sorry but these parts are so new that we don't have photos yet.

They list a Metzler 260 rear tire. Does anyone know if that will fit on the stock rim?

I had the Metzeler 260 on my VTX.  It uses the 8.5 inch rim just like the 240 and 250.  One little secret is that the Metzeler 260 is slightly narrower than the Dunlop 250.  I had the numbers someplace.  I will see if I can find them.

great! i can't wait! i'm also looking for a tail light integrator. i'd like to smooth out the rear end by getting rid of the side turn signals.

I'm with you. You mean like the ones on the Hammer? A LED strip that sits flush at the bottom of the rear fender.

that'd work also. you'd have to get rid of the liscense plate, which i plan to do also. what i was talking about though, is something that makes half of the tail light blink.

I have a side mount on my VTX but they are illegal in TN and I've been pulled over for it. :confused: The one I got coming will tuck up real nice under the fender and I have some nice small turn signals to go with it. We will have a side mout too but that will be a while before they are ready. ::)

Here is something I had posted earlier:

We did a bunch of fitting of big tires on the VTX last year. Here are the actual tire widths for you to compare.

These were all mounted on 8.5 inch wide rims.


240 Metzeler on rim is 9.5 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

250 Avon on rim is 9 5/8 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

250 Dunlop on rim is 10 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

260 Metzeler on rim is 9 7/8 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall
