VN900 Custom Dark Side

I am going to be going to the darkside with my VN900 Custom.
will it look ok if I don't lower it?
What size tire should I get?
Will I need any modifications?

I have not went dark side yet. I know there are already some threads started on this. So try the Search this thread at the top right of this page. I think you can find what your looking for there.

No issues running it at all. Just a little difficult to get mounted if you don't do a little prep work.

Once you remove the old tire you will see a lip on the inside of the rim that will cause the care tire to hang up on when you try and seat the bead, so if you take some polish and polish the lip it will help the install go smoother. Also, if the bead still won't seat run the pressure up to 80psi and set it out in the sun.

I run mine at 37psi.
