Default Looking for spacer for 300 Jackpot

I'm looking for a best source to buy a spacer for my 2012 Vegas Jackpot. Got the 300 Avon mounted on the 18x10.5 Arlen Ness.

Remove the loop, grind the right side corner of the swingarms.... When time to mount, the left side fits fine BUT on the right, the rim rubs hard against against the belt. Need about 1/4 inch to clear.

Any help or input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Spectrader needs spacers similar to the ones I got through the Sydney Victory shop as attached.

Spectrader- where exactly are you located?

Can anyone near Spectraders location direct him to someone that may or can make spacer kits?

No worries mate.

I think from memory my spacers were only 3mm- but obviously if you space the back pulley out, the front pulley also needs to be spaced out otherwise the belt won't track centred and will likely come off, as well as ruin the bearings etc.

By the way Spectrader- I've been to Fort Lauderdale and Miami- loved it. Especially the Platinum club at Fort Lauderdale......lol

That makes perfect sense, Kris. Thanks. I might elect to go with the 280 Metz for now and regroup later. Should work, right?

Ps: I'm less than distinct about the night life...lol but Miami is lots of fun. Can't beat the year round riding weather....

Yes a 280 will fit fine- and the Metzellers have a more rounded profile so they look like a 290, and not far off a 300. I had the 280 Metz rear before spacers, and it fits fine.
