has any one attemted or fitted a wide back wheel kit to their sporty and if they have were there any problems encountered and where was it bought from. I see many web sites on the net offering them up to 200mm still using a belt drive and anything wider using chain final drive I can imagine the exhaust would be 1 problem as a standard one would conflict with the wider swing arm. Some kits have an outrigger bearing on the drive pulley ,which I think is a good idea seing that the pulley will now be extended, but some dont. any ideas or experience of any kind from the forum members much appreciated
