Yes it will fit the stock rim. Yes you do have to trim the inner mud flap and belt gaurds. That is about the extent of the mods needed. If you plan on lowering your bike, try and do it all at the same time since you will have your bike on the jack anyway.

I am not sure about the differance in the B and the H. I have and alot of others have the 230/60H15. I got mine from:

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/pr...&sizeAttr=6999

I also got the Britt lowering kit and went with the full drop. You will need to adjust your shock to 6 or 7 so you do not bottom out. I will send you some other info in a PM since it will have info on another site. I don't have to many recent pics, but I will add a couple to show the difference between stock tire and 230 tire.

The turn signals on my bike are a L.E.D. strip I got from Radiantz. I got a 4 way load equilizer to control the rear and foward turn signals since mine are all L.E.D. My front turn signals I stayed with the stock buckets, but painted them black and installed new bulbs. What I like about my front turn signals is that I taped off a 1/8" front edge so after painted, they had a chrome edge like the headlight. I also got my plate frame with L.E.D.'s from Raidiantz. My brake light has the smoked lens cover and L.E.D. light set up from Meancycles. I removed the mount and painted it black also.
