I have not tried it, but what you have to do is measure the distance you have from the swing arm to the tire and the fender to the tire, than find the width of the tire you are going to use and see if it will fit. You have leave a little room for tire flex. Make sure you measure the actual tire you are going to use. Different manufactures tires are not always the exact same size.

I looked into this for my custom build. You need a wider rim but it wont clear the belt.
