ok, so as i understand it in order for me to mod my bike with this 6" wheel and 200 tire requires no alterations or fabs to the factory rear end? will i be able to keep the shocks on there?

I've got a 5.5" rim with a 200 and it did require alteration of the subframe under the rear fender. Some have removed the subframe (if you don't carry passengers). As for your shocks, stock will work. I've got 11-1/2 progressives on the back (with 3/4" travel limiters) and don't have a problem bottoming out.

Jake, did you have to modify the rear drum arm due to the 200?

If you are talking about the brake stay rod, no. Just used the rubber bushing and put it between the drum and the stay rod to space it out.

They are for the progressive shocks. You can get them from phatperformanceparts.com or directly from the progressive shock page.
What it is, basically is two pieces of plastic that are 3/4" and they are put on the piston shaft of the shock to take up space to limit it's travel.
