Fat tire on a Vulcan 900


Kevin wanted to see if a fatter rear tire would fit on the 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom. We ordered one in and installed it and it fit perfectly with just a little trimming of the belt guard. This tire we installed is a 230 wide tire and it changed the look of the bike dramatically.

So the tire fit on the stock rim?

Yes, all we had to do was trim the belt guard a little and the rest fit just fine. Rides great to

Albert do you work at the Kawasaki dealership? I am very interested in doing the same mod to my Vulcan. So let me get this clear all you did was just throw a larger tire on the stock rim? Exactly what size/brand is the tire? (230/40, 230/50, 230/60?) If you could post some more pictures of the bike it would be greatly appreciated. The tire you got on there looks great.
