Since this is a frequent question we get from customers all over the World, here is a little guide about the parts you need to install a 280 or 300 tire on the rear of your Harley V-Rod, Night-Rod, Street-Rod and V-Rod Muscle.
First off, you will need a wider swingarm. We offer several styles of billet aluminum swingarms:
- Classic Swingarm Kit for V Rod’s
- Cut-Out Swingarm Kit for V-Rods
- Saber Swingarm Kit for V-Rods
- Billet Aluminum Swingarm Kit for V-Rod
For crazy projects we also offer a Single-Sided Swingarm Kit for V-Rods, which we believe is simply the coolest swingarm for V-Rods on the market! Kit includes billet aluminum swingarm, air ride suspension, .23 gallon (16 liters) gas tank and necessary mounting hardware.
Secondly, you will need to offset the front pulley, so the belt can run straight to the rear pulley. For this you can use our Front Offset Pulley for V Rod’s, Front Pulley Offset Spacer for V-Rod’s for 280/300 Tires on 10.5 Wide Rims or Front Pulley Offset Spacer for V-Rod’s for 300 Tires on 11.5 Wide Rims.
Of course you will need also a wider rear wheel. You can mount a 280 or 300 tire on an 18×10.5 rim or a 300 tire on an 18×11.5 rim.
If the budget is tight you can opt for our Blank Wheels for V-Rod’s, which feature a generic design and therefore will allow you to re-use the original Harley rear pulley and brake rotor.
If you are after a unique look you can check out our Cyclone Wheels for V-Rod’s, Bat Wheels for V-Rod’s, Magnum Wheels for V-Rod, Cobra Wheels for V-Rod’s, Titan Wheels for V-Rod’s, 3D Lowrider Wheels for V-Rod and 3D Open Mind Wheels for V-Rod. Matching front wheels, rear pulleys and brake discs are available to complete your project.
Of course you will need a 280 or 300 tire, which we do not offer, but you can get it online or at any motorcycle store near you.
Lastly, you will also need a wider rear fender to accommodate the wider wheel and tire.
For all V-Rod’s, Night-Rod’s, Street-Rod’s and V-Rod Muscle’s we offer these solo seat fenders:
- Turbo Rear Fender for V-Rod’s
- Speed Demon Rear Fender for V-Rod’s
- Stealth Rear Fender for V-Rod’s
- Street Fighter Rear Fender for V-Rod’s
If you want something really unique that will make heads turn, you may want to check out our Stealth Body Kit for V Rods.
Please note all fenders we offer are for solo riders, you cannot carry a passenger on them!
This is to allow you to relax, at least when you are riding 😀
