Default Rear frame loop removal problems?

When removing the rear frame loop for the 300 tire mod, has anyone had any problems or noticed any issues with that mod. Are there any negatives to cutting it off? I would like to cut it off and lower the bike so the tire wont rub. When I first lowered the bike it rubbed on the loop so I put the stock links back on.

All the riders that have done this mod are really quiet on this topic. No feedback. Does that mean its all good cutting off the loop, no issues after its done? I just want to be sure before i perform the surgery.

Sounds like none survived the mod.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Buzz , most of the guys cut straight up and down directly in front of where the loop is welded to the frame .... Actually cutting the frame rail itself , this is how I will be doing mine also .

I cut mine off of my 2012 hammer 8 ball - put pics on here to prove it. No effect to the ride or anything else. More clearance for the 300 side walls. Those frame rails are beefy enough to exist without that loop




Search my name, you;ll see pics of my 300 install
