Did a 21” fat tire on a customer’s shark

So the other day at work, I installed an RC Components 21” wheel with matching rotors and a 180 front tire. Also installed Axeo 23 cartridges since the fat 21 rolls out like a 23” wheel. Came out slick and rides great. The only real bitch was trimming the fork cans by hand, on powder coated cans. Lol.

Here’s what I had to do to the cans to make sure they didn’t hit the fender during compression. I did trim them more than they needed but I didn’t want to do it twice. Lol.

Thank you. I’m seriously thinking about taking my 18” fat tire kit off and going with a 23” fat tire kit. If I do that, because I’ll need to change my trees, which will in turn change my fairing bracket, I’d have to take my CVO fang spoiler off.
