Xchoppers - X Sickles Big Tire Kit
Considered by most "in the know", a 240/250 Big Tire is the limit for great looks while maintaining Aggressive Handling Qualities, Original Honda Reliability and a Uncompromising Ride.
Our X Sickles Big Tire Kit does not require permanent modifications to your chassis or suspension like other manufacturer's kits. Our custom fender also allows using a 10.5" rear shock for the best look while not sacrificing tire to fender clearance, 2-up or otherwise!
No welding, cutting or fabrication is required!
Installation is all bolt on.
Returning your VTX to stock remains an option (but no one ever wants to).
Our X Sickles Big Tire Kit kit allows fitment of either a 240 Dunlop Elite 3, Metzeler 240 or Avon 250. NOTE: Dunlop Elite 3 in the 240 size is as wide as a Avon 250. The 250 Dunlop Elite 3 is too wide for this application and will not clear any VTX swingarm available.
Our favorite tire for the VTX is the 240 Dunlop Elite III.
I use one on my own VTX.
This Xchoppers kit provides the main components you need to build your X Sickles Big Tire Custom for outrageously great looks, O.E.M. reliability AND Superior Handling Qualities. Unlike other manufacturers, our Xchoppers VTX big tire rear fenders allow full suspension travel which provides for tire to fender clearance in any position, from slammed to fully raised. We recommend either MB Products 10.5" rear shocks or an adjustable height air suspension for the best appearance. 11" Progressive Suspension shock absorbers can also be used but 10.5" shocks (MB Products) provide the best fitment. Everything you need is available elsewhere on our Xchoppers website. Feel free to call for information about anything you're looking for.
NOTE: RC Component rear wheels require either one of their custom rotors or, to use the stock rear rotor you will need an RC Components rear rotor adapter (shown below in "options").
RC front wheels for Honda cruisers require RC Components custom rotors. RC Components wheels for Suzuki M109 front wheels fit stock, original brake rotors and no rear rotor adapter is required.
Sumo-X wheels do do require additional adapters or custom rotors to use stock rotors on either front or rear wheel. Custom Sumo-X brake rotors are available to match their wheels (see options).
A Custom Sumo-X modified 240 / 250 Swing Arm is Included in Our Kit. Raw, black powder coated, chrome or unpainted finishes are available - (see options selection below). We have standardized on this swing arm as it may not be the cheapest swingarm available but it is the best we have used (and we have used a few from different manufacturers and learned the hard way what works and what does not). Some of those companies are still manufacturing inferior fat tire swingarms so beware. When it comes to a component as critical as your swingarm, don't compromise quality and safety.
Swingarm (Unpainted) or Black Powder Coating (see options below).

You must order 2 RC Components rotors when selecting a matching RC front wheel on the VTX 1800 and one for the VTX 1300.
RC Components front rotors are not compatible with stock Honda wheels and can only be used with RC wheels.
RC Components custom rotors are also required when installing a RC Components front wheel. The stock rear rotor may be used with a RC rear wheel or you may select a custom matching RC rear rotor (see options below).
Front tire is not included in kit and if needed must be ordered separately.
