Looks great. Helped a buddy do this "swap" (Yeah right...) on his Roadie a couple summers back. Lots of work involved with the rear , front was almost plug and play. BB

Re:RAIDER rear wheel swap 4 Years, 9 Months ago  
Patience was the key to making this all work out... And having an engineering / fabrication background. All in all its doable and if anyone is ever thinking of swapping the Raider rear wheel hit me up. The ride is great and IMHO you can't beat the look of the fat tire out back!

Dennis, any updated pics with the new bag brackets and bags on the new setup? Looks like an awesome setup. How's the ride with both Raider wheels now?

Re:RAIDER rear wheel swap 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
I love the ride since swapping out the rear wheel. I probably helps that I am running Metzeler ME880's now. They are A LOT better than the Dunlops I had before. Funny thing is you would never know there is a 210 tire under the back when your rollin down the road. Corners the same if not better too. I will have to post a few pictures of the FAT fender with the bags installed. I have been so busy with everything else I forgot to change my sig pic too!
