300 Wide tire kit.

So I am thinking about bolting up a 300 kit on my new 08 GSXR 750. I would like to go with the 240 but I cant find one. anyone use roaring toyz products before? any real downsides? except for the handling? Black on black with black assasin wheels.
$7000 going to far?

Well, the other downsides are expensive rear tire replacements, and people will think you're a poser. If those aren't a problem for you, go for it.

To be a poser.
Some drag racing at the local track, but the rear tire itself is only like $200, rims are 2000, new swing arm with jackshaft are the expensive part.

All fingering aside, you might pose that question in the Drag Racing forum. You might get a better response.

Well to help answer some of your questions, Roaring Toyz have some great stuff and do quality work. If you want a 240 kit then call Roaring Toyz and tell them, because the make them for any kind of bike. Also $7000 for 300 fat tire kit is too much, I have frineds that all chrome kits that were only $6200 including chain, sprockets and all. Also check out candscustom.com. I have had work done by them in the past, they do great work as well.

300 might be a lil too much for a 750. looks wise that is. not too sure bout engine wise. like someothers said check roaring toyz the sell a greggs customs single sided tubular swingarm. it is a good looking swingarm and i believe much more reasonably price than 7g. handles well also in the stock size. when it goes up to a 240 turnin gets annoying. hope this helps

since light is faster than sound...many people look bright until they speak...
