Hi. Am finally where I need to be in terms of knowing what mods I wanna do to my 900 Custom. I like the looks of the Britt Motorsports fat tire kit. I am really only interested in the rear tire and lowering kit. Anyone have any experience with them or know someone who does??

Lookin to lower mine, then add the fat rear tire. Like the fender too so will do that as well (their fender I mean).

Thanks

So this kit makes it possible to put a 210 tire on the back? They send you a front and rear tire already mounted on rims and a new rear fender? What does this kit cost?

I wouldn't lower it first before a big mod like this...

In my honest opinion I don't know if this kit would be worth it when you can put a 200 on with no mods...

Yes that is the kit I'm talking about. I've spoken with them. As I said I'm not interested in the front tire and wheel. They said they can pretty much add or subtract any items desired no prob. I don't like the spoke wheel. Am just wondering if anyone has messed with this kit (for me specifically the rear portion).

As I'm sure you're well aware...sometimes they don't work as you'd like in the end...maybe some issues down the road...maybe not. Just doin some homework.

Truth be told I'd love to be able to go to a 240 or 250 in the rear. Don't see that happening though.

Thanks

As far as I know no one on this forum has tried this mod... at 2800 bucks it seems a lil pricey for most. Yes they can modify the package for you but still... a 210 rear tire with all the work seems pretty extensive. You can swap to a 200 with no mods. Everyone loves the look of a 250 rear but on our bikes it just wasn't meant for it. Even if it was possible it would throw the geometry of the bike way off. Kawasaki built it a certain way for a reason... right? If you really want a fat rear tire so badly then you might just have to opt for a different bike....

Nah not mega-fat like the 240/250. Although I'd love to be able to it just isn't possible with this bike. Thanks for the input

Yeah, I think 210 is not enough to warrant the effort and expense of installing a kit. I would like to see the make a kit for a little wider - say 240. Lots of bikes come standard with this width tire - some HDs and some Triumph RIII's??

I wonder If you could make a HD after market wheel and tire set up fit the 900? Maybe the brake sys would have to come from HD as well? Worth a thought and migfht be cheaper?
