Everything on the rear half the bike (frame, fender, seat, swing arm, etc.).

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

might be a stupid question but is the rim fender or swingarm the part that makes the 250 tire not practical?//?

Not true at all. I know because i debated it heavily. You can sell your vegas, then buy and older jackpot with more miles, but that doesnt mean its cheaper to sell and buy a jackpot. For under 2K you can do the conversion- even cheaper if you are in no rush. Im almost done with mine and can post up the parts list.
