That is one wicked looking pipe. I don't think I have ever seen one like that before...

what size is the tire?...well, its a 200, its a metezler MME 880...i'm not sure "exactly" what the width of the tire is.....hmm.....well, the stock fender is 9" wide.....i'd have to guess maybe 7inches..but thats a guess

good luck on your all's mods.....its so fun to get the "fever"...

if anyone of you guys are in west virginia, look me up sometime...i live in Elkins

$136 from you local dealer?...damn man, he's planning on retiring on you.....thats top retail dollar....my local dealer let me have mine for $100 plus tax!

Got my rim and tire in yesterday!!!

Rim was from http://www.servicehonda.com/
cost will be $106.50 to your door. If you plan on ordering over the phone, ask for some dude called Pooh. He was a nice guy.

Tire was from http://www.swmototires.com/
cost will be $161.45 to your door. If you plan on ordering over the phone, ask for Blaine. He was cool also.

The part # for the rim and tire size is correct in the above threads!


Plan on trying to lace it and true it up myself in a few days. I'll let you know how it went.

Are you still using your subframe?.......Im running 10.25 rigids, and Im looking for smaller ones to close the fender/tire gap.......My subframe is close to the sides of the tire as it is.....do I need to get rid of the whole subframe?.........Just wondering...

No, you don't need to get rid of the subframe. You will just need to file it down a bit. That's what I did.

Oh, when you reply to somebody, it helps to use the "quote" button. It helps us who are subscribed to the thread to know who you are answering. :)
