Wanting to put the ME880 200/50ZR-18 on my VTX1800F. Any Mods required to do this?

Looking to put the ME880 200/50ZR18 on my 1800F.
I seem to remember reading here that no mods were required to use this 200 on my bike.
I have done many searches to try to find these posts/threads but cannot locate them now.
Can anyone confirm that I will not need to grind,cut, file anything to put this tire on?

Thanks for the info & help guys!
Love this site!

It fits just perfect, I ran a few of them. I prefer the Bridgestone BT028, designed for the new VMAX and the FURY chopper http://www.directlineparts.com/produ...pid=9204&str=0 I think you can get one for less thru Motorcycle Superstore or get Directline to price match

Why is common sense not so common

Why doesn't P.E.T.A. ever attack a biker

My 200 rubbed and that was even after I ground the inside fender parts down a little. So they do not fit on all.

So is the C model different than the F then?

F guys say no issue but some issue with the C?

The F fits great, but C's need some trim work under the fender

I just replaced that tire on my 1800R that runs F wheels. It fit fine with no mods. The problem was I couldn't get more than 5,800 miles out of it.
