Just put the Dunlop 250 on. Only mod was to grind the inside of the lower (plastic) belt guard took make room. Easy process and you can not see the mod from form the outside unless you really look for it. Didn't have to remove the stock tail lights. But I plan to just becuase I want the fatty to show. Guys at the shop all said it's a huge improvement.
As for the ride.... much, much better than the stock 210.
Easy... you should seriously consider it. Unless you plan to lower your bike... there's more than enough room under the fender.
One more thought if you add the 250. Before putting the tire on, adjust the shock... putting a couple of extra turns to stiffen the ride. It can be done after the tire is one but it's a little tougher to do. There's a tool under the seat just for this procedure.
This change should help make sure you don't bottom out, fender on tire, when hitting bumps. I added 4 clicks. I believe I can add 2 more if needed.
Only problem with the 250 Dunlop is if you ever want to lower bike more than 1.5". Been a few on here that found that out already the hard way. Dunlop is the highest profile tire, Avon being the lowest. I have the Avon 250 on a 8" PM wheel and lowered 1". No problems, but I did change tailight placement configuration to accomadate the extra room needed.
I have the 240 on mine with progressive suspension with a one inch drop. I had to trim the lower belt guard and trimmed the top one also to be safe. I found out the hard way that my ride sag was also off for two up with the 240 and it ripped out all my wiring for my run turn brake controller I had mounted to the fender.
So after trimming, moving the tail light and adjusting my ride sag it is perfect. I will also say there is barely any noticable difference from the 240 to the 250.
