Hi Everyone.

Looking into applying wider swing arm for bigger rear tire on Commando. Been in contact with "swingarm.com" and they manufacture a swingarm for a Commando that will take a 150 width tire.

Asked if there would be any rear chain alignment issues with additional width, swingarm.com didn't know.

Anybody have any experience with alternate/wider swingarms and alignment issues with rear chain?

Dear Dukester, MANY people say 'Too Big A Rear Tire Makes Our Machines Hard (slow) To Turn' good luck!

It will still foul the chainguard, and the bike doesn't need a wider tyre anyway.

I am running a 120/90 X 18 with a 530 chain and a custom chain guard on 72 Combat.

Clubman Racing has been working on a new swing arm that will accept a 130 tire. That'll probably work with a 520 non o ring chain.

I imagine anything larger would require drive train mods.
