Matt's 2006 Night Train had only a few hundred miles on it when he had Nobody put a Wide Tire kit on it. That is a 240; the widest you can use with a belt.
Matt was serving America in Iraq, and had his father deliver the bike for it's conversion. When he came back for leave, he was shocked to see the difference.
Here is a brief overview of what it takes to install a Fat Tire kit. This is not for the weak at heart. Please don't try this at home...
