Did you ever get the 8.5" wheel with the 240 tire mounted safely without modifying the swingarm? I mounted the 240 on the stock 7.5" before buying wheels and it's CLOSE. The 8.5" wheel X 240 tire combo doesn't look like it will fit without extending swingarm with longer drive belt or installing wider swingarm. Just curious, this tight tolerance is the only thing holding me back from buying new wheels. Anyone mount RCComponents or another 8.5" wheel with 240 tire?

The 8.5 240 fits perfect on the biike. When you mount a 240 on the stock rim it causes it to bulge out at the top and create a preoblem with width. The 8.5 240 rim has a more natural mount for the tire and it doesn't bulge like the 240 on the 7.5 does.
