rear tire

I have a 2008 900 custom that I would like to change the rear tire on. Has anybody put a 240 on theirs? If so, please post some pictures. I'm curious about what to do with the turn signals and licence plate. Any ideas would be welcome.

The max you can go on the stock rim is 230 but if you buy a rim they you can go 240.

I checked into all of this before I purchased my new rims. The problem is with the swingarm. If you go up to the 240 then be prepared to modify the swingarm. Even after that, it is going to be a VERY tight fit.
