Yes Fatscout, I think it will suit the bobber style smaller rear gaurd really well and will balance the look of the back of the bike too as the tank is pretty wide.

Yeah Damien, the Breakout's handle woefully. It has more to do with there (lack of) ground clearance/lean angle and the rake on them.
V rod's have a 240 rear on them and handle a heap better than a Breakout ever could.
The 240-260 rears do take a little more to tip in at lower speeds, but once your going at reasonable pace they are fine.

I think the fella in the add Fatscout posted is reaching a bit... $36000?!

Kayne, my wife and I are in Maffra too, (for the next three weeks, until we move to Stratty) I'd love to check out your beastie once the 240 rear is on.

Hit me up if you're interested in a ride.
Will and Katie.

2018 Bobber. Thunder Black Smoke. Fox shocks, reduce reach bars and Emgo slash cut slip on pipes.

Soon to come: PVCX and maybe a zippers intake.

I’m more planning running the bike in a straight line, as in quarter/eighth mile than doing a lot of cornering except a few Sunday rides.
Got a few performance mods already but more lined up! 🚦🤛🤛🤛✊

Got anything planned for the engine?

I know Ken at Black Ice Racing has played around with a few of them now.

Current 2018 Chieftain

Past 2016 Scout

Future I'm thinking old School 40s Chief.

Hi Sean, yeah I know Mel who is one of Kens mates and goes up when they go salt lake racing, I might go see them for some dyno time.

As far as mods I have intake, pipes, engine management on now and also a bosch wide band O2 sender and PLX afr gauge so I can do a bit of my own tuning.

I've ordered a Pingel clutchles electric shifter and I’m piecing together a direct port wet nitrous system from some left over components from another project.

Hi Kyane

So what sort of quarter mile times are you thinking with your setup? I have absolutely no knowledge of drag racing motorcycles (cars are a different kettle of fish) but can I guess you are looking towards the low to mid 9's?

I really have no idea on times, Ive raced a drag car and ran 8,90’s but never a bike so it will be a new learning curve for me!

The kit without postage is USD $2,495.00 (AUD $3580.63c) far as I know.
Given how that is over AUD $1k you will also be charged an import duty and gst as well. I reckon the rim maybe weighs 15kg, thats a guess, then there's the Fender, brake rotor, cush thinggy, axle bolt, axle nut. Not sure if I missed anything. Its gunna cost you like $500-600 in shipping, with Parcel Tracking and Signed delivery, maybe take 2-3 weeks, then sit in aussie customs waiting (I don't even know how Import Duties work, maybe the carrier?). Costs could go $4.5k and with the rear fender (steel) maybe AUD $5k incl. duties and gst.

Definitely don't order a fitted tire with that, get one locally. Erm, I couldn't pay $5k for a fat tire even if I could afford it. No matter how cool it looks. 

*Ray of Hope (tm): Labor win federal election and the aussie dollar climbs back up over the greenback exchange rate to once more dominate... I remember when an aussie dollar traded USD $1.10
It could happen again. The dollar lost like 20c - 30c in a couple of months of Abbot PM, I think. ay back then.

Yes not a cheap modification for sure!, it wasn’t cheap! but it didn’t cost me near that sort of $$$ either.
I only bought the rim and mounting kit, (which is just a few small spacers and washers), no tyre no belt guard, no rear fender and bought a tire over here.
There’s no new rotor, axle etc required as it uses the original and the rim came with bearings and axle spacer.
Freight was $400 I think and $200 or something for import duties.
I was happy to spend the dollars as it has a great visual impact and really complements the wide squat look of the bike and it handles absolutely fine even with that size rear tire so no regrest  here 🙂
