HA! This kit can help balance things out for you.
Now that may do the trick! Nice looking kit but unfortunately I own a Vintage. I do look forward to seeing one in person though!

That rocks... game changer for a few folks out there... I'd do it, if I owned a Scout. Few guys are going to eventually chime in on how a 240 changes up the cornering, etc,etc. My R3 had a 240; handled fine. My BDM has a 330; that .. is a challenge

I like a lot ... makes the scout look more grown up ... maybe it does not look as small anymore ... and I start feeling desire for a scout now !!!

Bad...ass! It would seem the the Scout has really lit a fire under the tail ends of after-marketeers! Nice, very nice.
Let's hope the same happens for the Chief line!

that looks great but like my 13 hammer it will be heavy + not handle as well as a big enough 200 on a 6.5" wheel + a matching 18 for the front as well. on that note could you build a 17X6.5" for the rear of my 13 hammer with all factory parts fitting to it, a matching 18X3.5" up front would do fine. research shows a 200-55-17 to be very close diameter as my stock 250X18 dunrock which i replaced with the much sportier pirelli night dragon in 240X 18 flavor also looking which wheels you sell are lighter for my 13 hammer

This would be my primary concern and challenge - handling? I have always heard that the fatboys tend to make a bike want to stand up in a corner? But I do not know personally anything about it. How does it change the weight of the Scout. MORE PICS.:)

a lot depends on tyre selection! my stock 250 dunrock on a 13 hammer was just ok, an 08 model i tested was terrible, a 250 dunrock but was an older squarish style. the 240-40-18 pirelli night dragon i installed is great, ducatis built for them + their Diavel a 240-45-17 is prolly better. big tyres look cool but most are overly big + hurt performance with the xtra static + rotating weight, less weight per sq in on the contact patch causes less traction as well!! like skinny front tyres fat rears are more looks than anything. buying the wheels, a matching front as well prolly 2-3 G!!! for those with deep pockets for sure!!!!!! i feel a pair of 18's with modern low profile radials would look great + handle well! the tractor tyre setup does not look good to me!!! sorry not meant to hurt anyones feelings but we all like different things!!

I've built and ridden fat tire customs for 13 years, I wouldn't build a bike that isn't fun to ride. Certainly some combinations handle better than others.

I will be getting my 240 Scout back from my partner soon. We not only installed a 240 Avon Cobra on the back but also a 17" x 150mm front on a widened fork. I expect it will greatly improve handling as well as looks.

This is out kit to install a 200mm rear on a 5.5" wide wheel for those looking to increase rear grip without having to change the rear fender. This requires rear frame modifications but they just require trimming with a sabre saw.

I'll always regret crashing my Diavel a year ago for more than one reason. It was a terrific bike. I rode it 5,000 miles over 4 years,... every one of them was special.

I expect my Scout will somehow suffice my desire to replace my Diavel. o_O
