Extended 240 Fat Tire Kit
Our 240 Fat tire Kits is a simple Bolt-On swingarm conversion kit. When installing a 240 conversion kit you will have to replace the front sprocket with a 1/4 inch off set sprocket to accommodate the width of an 18" x 8.5" wheel, that will be used with our custom built swingarm that comes with spacers to allow proper wheel centering. All pre-ordered swing arms are built to the standard style look, you can add under or over bracing if desired. All kits in our pictures show you what a kit includes, you can change the finish or overall stretch of a 240 swinagarm from 12", 14", 16", and 18" over stock if wanting. The standard built length is 6 inches over center. All changes will reflect from the standard kit shown in pictures. For the custom wheels we use are the following: Performance Machine and RC Component Wheels, both companies start from a solid piece of aluminum and cnc to their many styles they have designed. The kit price allows you to choose from any style you want, it’s the finish that has to be the same as the swingarm you chose. Do know some kits will need our rear brake kit as well, you will be notified if so. These custom swingarms have been drag raced and hard corning the roads for years, so performance and handling is no issue here. American Made!
There may be additional shipping/handling charges for this item when shipped outside of the United States. You will be informed by email.
A degree of mechanical skill is required. When installing wider wheels and tires assure there is enough clearance throughout frame, exhaust, suspension and frame. Always use a bike stand or lift for safety
(1) Remove the swingarm pivot tube bolt.(2) Remove bolts from lowering links that hold the shock to swingarm pivot.(3) Remove Chain and rear brake and brake hose. Now the whole rear end is ready to be removed, and now ready for new swingarm installation.
Swingarm Install:(4) Attach new lowering links if using at this time and then bolt rear shock to single sided swinagarm. Refer to owner’s manual for torque spec settings and Loctite use.(5) Swingarm mount is done. Now you can mount rear wheel with proper wheel spacers provided with rear wheel, make sure you have in adjuster plates in correct direction, and while you push axel bolt from the right side, have in hand the rear brake caliper bracket if used with your original swingarm. Once all this is done then finger tighten axel bolt for now.(6)Now this is a good time to remove front sprocket and put in your new 1/4" offset sprocket. Most every motorcycle requires this to assure proper centering of a 240mm rear tire.(7)Adjust the screws on swingarm to the same tick mark, this will assure the rear wheel is riding straight and not pushing more to one side. Reverse bolts to adjust plates to desired stretch. "Make sure you leave at least 1" from end for future tightening.(8) Cut New chain to your overall stretch you desired. Once chain has master link in place, reverse swingarm bolts to push back on adjuster plates for final tightening of chain. If you’re not sure if extension chain is correct, pushing down on chain you should be able to see it having 1/2" play.(9) Now you can tighten up swingarm axel bolt to required specs and look over every bolt to assure everything has proper washers and where Loctite is required it has been.(10) Now you can mount your new extended rear brake line and use new banjo bolt and crush washers to assure to no leaking brake fluid causing break failure.(11) Now you’re ready to test out your new trickerd out big tire kit. When doing so, always ride with caution until you get the feel of the over sized rear wheel and your new turning abilities.
