 Post subject: Any "fatty" options without spacing the engine over?
PostPosted: Tue Aug 03, 2010 11:48 am 
Does anyone produce a bolt-on fatty rear wheel option that doesn't require spacing? Obviously, you wouldn't be able to go as wide as with some spacing. Is the clearance too close from the factory? I'm not near my scooter currently to look.
thanks.

5" wide mini fatty is about all you can do without offsetting the engine. Do a search and you will find more info on this setup. We put this setup on Serialz_1 bike and he has pictures posted in his build thread.

That is about perfect! Where did he source that wheel? Offset is perfect for a straight swap?

He got that setup from me!!! It's a sym hub with a Douglas 10" x 5" rim 3+2 offset. The tough part is finding the rim as some of them have been discontinued I believe. You can find the sym hubs on Ebay.

So, this hub:

and the douglas wheel you've mentioned, and I can rock a mini-fatty?
Thank you very much!

Yes sir!!! The only other thing you might need to do is shim out your muffler with a washer or two if the clearance is too tight. :)

Yeah they are hell to find.I have been looking but no dice just yet.I found plenty in the wrong bolt pattern tho. :wasted: Im not down with redrilling the wheels so i'll keep looking.I have talked to someone about making new custom hubs for the GET with other patterns but im looking at close to $4k if I wanna invest in that.

I found my 10x5 wheel on Ebay. Bolt pattern is correct for the Sym hub, offset is "close", but not perfect- I'd say it's off by 1/4". I haven't mounted mine yet because I want it to be exactly centered, but I'm considering doing it anyway and shimming the engine over later.

Here is the link to the Ebay seller:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/10-Diame ... ccessories

Good price too. $35 plus shipping for 2 wheels.

And here is a pic of the mounted rim and the centerlines:

That looks pretty good! And a good price for 2 of 'em. (Maybe you want to unload the extra one?) Can you post up some more pics from different angles?
thanks

There are few more pix here:


viewtopic.php?f=12&t=46397&p=752488&hilit=10x5#p752488

Unfortunately I still haven't mounted the tire yet, so no pix of that. Also, I'm running an Elite 80 shock, which is slightly beefier than the stocker...

What do you guys think about this 1/4" offset? Will it affect how the scoot rides/turns?
