My bud RJ has decided that he wants to roll his SG with a 26". The 19" HD Agitator wheel wasn't big or blingy enough for him. He considered a 30" but it takes a bunch more work and is a bit much for these Michigan roads.

Here's what it looks like now

Sitting next to his truck with 20" rims and 37.5" tires

He has the front rim and I grabbed some pics the other day.

Behind this is my wife's fiesta 16" rims

Next to the wife's fiesta

Should look like this. This is the same 26" front rim with some other goodies but you get the idea.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Lift%20Wrenching/Rick%20J/IMG_1845.jpg

He's also doing the 2" bag extensions so it's level up with the SG lower fender light and a small set of bars. Glassing in the extensions and the bars are a 10" (stock 6") so they should go over the fairing.

He has another shop doing the work, as soon as he gets all the parts in. I will update once he gets it all done..

Damn that's a big ass tire! I think his bike looks awesome as he has it. Even though I'm not a big fan of anything over a 21", I'm looking forward to seeing it done.

Is he chopping/welding or does someone make a rake kit for a wheel that size?

Gas Man

It's a simple rake in the tripple trees, fork cap extensions, and a new fender. It's all bolt on, with the exception to the bag extensions and all.

Looks good. I wonder if them big rims have a gyroscopic effect. Ask him if I can ride it so I can stop wondering.

What do you mean a gyro effect?

What do you mean a gyro effect?

When the wheel is spinning sometimes it looks like you can see individual spokes that are rotating slowly.

Gas Man
11-30-2012, 07:10 PM
Oh right... I'm sure you'll be able to see it.

What I ment was that's a big ass wheel. I would ne worried about turning ability and high speed operations.

You can see due to the rake, he put a headlight adjustor on it.

Busted the bike out of the trailer yesterday, long enough to test fit my center stand on it.

It looks more impressive out of the trailer and into the "sun light"

Looks amazing. Would be curious to hear how it handles. Do you plan any long trips on this bike?

Gas Man

He's not a long trip kinda guy, so I don't think so.

I too am curious how it handles. It definetly plays with the rake/trail.

Looks good. Did you drop the front at all? Looks like it rides with it's nose in the air.

Gas Man
02-25-2013, 11:36 PM
It's all rake in the trees. It also has fork tube extensions. The fairing itself is angled more due to the rake in the trees. Then the front headlight is extended out with an adapter to bring it back down. So I guess its nose is in the air because it's now bigger & badder than us. :lol:

GaugeMods
02-25-2013, 11:58 PM
Ya I didn't think the front got lowered. I dropped mine 2" in the front after installing the 21". I also had to install Ricor Bump stops so the fender wouldn't hit the crash bar.
