Most people have been doing it themself. It's just a simple angle cut. If you know where there is an '06 S-E V-rod that you can look at then all you need to do is look at where the rear caliper slides on the swingarm and you'll see the notch. It takes about 5 minutes.

I am in the process of getting parts together to go to a 240 maybe 260 if it will fit on the stock swing arm. Something about the anodized just looks so good and with that rear, super clean and nice looking bike.

Ummm the stock swing arm is bare aluminum, not anodized. And I doubt you get anything larger then a 240-250 into a stock swing arm without having it cut.

I'm sure my wife will disagree, but I don't see where its worth the headache and money just to go 2" wider. That's if you are rolling a 200mm. To each his own. The bike does look good and I guess everyone has to have a hobby.

You have have to see these 2 tires side by side.

Nothin like a modified anodized V-Rod w solid wheels in my book.Looks real good.
My wife and brother thought I was crazy when I started modifying mine and stuffed a 240 in place of the 200,but now that it's been done they keep telling me that my bike now has the look that it has always needed.

You're right it's a preference thing....
The visible difference!
IMHO it's worth every penny. The stock bike, with a 180 or a 200 just does not look complete to me. Oviously the MOCO feels the same way, since the new bikes are wide now...

Here it is side by side:

240mm rear:

I can't really tell a difference with the two different angles in the photos. I can visibly tell the difference between the 200 and the 240 when I see them on (and that's not by looking at the tire wall either...). How much did the mod cost you, if you don't mind me asking? I am a big fan of the fat rear tire, but my dilema is spending a lot of money for such a small difference. I would love to go 280, but funds aren't there yet.

Well, the wheel from v-mod is around 650. Plus pulley mod?? Not sure, belt 130. and tire 235. I'm basically at 1,000. That's it.
I needed a new tire anyway, so for me it was'nt that much more.

That looks great, going this route. Was thinking of going with 21" in the front instead. Has anyone done this with the solid stock or might be better to buy a solid 21"???
