The people I have talked say they love it and that it handles fine in twisties as well. Or they just don't want to admit they spent a ton of money for something they hate lol.

I know a few people on here have done it and really like it.

I had the fat tire kit on my 2012. It handles great as long as you don't over fill the front tire. When I first had it installed I ran the from tire and the manufacturers recommendation but found the bike had a tendency to wobble coming out of a turn at high speed. I dropped the tire pressure 5 lbs and had no problem after that.

I liked it enough that I plan to do it again to my 2015 when I can save up enough.

I have it on my 17. I have about 12k on it now, absolutely love it, no regrets. Was thinking about doing it on my 10 also, but I don't ride it as much and matching the paint wouldn't be easy either.
