Yes, I just posted pictures of what it looks like on my bike in the gallery a couple of days ago , Jeff
What all did you modify to get it to fit?I 've heard that the fender struts have to be removed and some trimming on the inner fender.Does the tire bottem out on the inner fender?
Isn't the Venom a softer compund than the Metz 200?

Venom 200 Tire

Yes we removed the fender struts and we had to trim the belt guard. I had already trimmed the inner fender because I removed the ugly plastic thing. It does not appear as though I would have needed to trim the inner fender for the tire to fit though. Yes with the lowered (skullman) shocks that I am using if I hit a hard bump my rear tire slightly bottoms. It is slight enough that it does not worry me and it is a fair trade off for the look.

I know very little about the tires but the reason I chose the Venom was because I heard that they were a little "stickier" and I like the way they look better. So I guess what you heard about the Venom being softer makes sense to me. Jeff
