    I understand what you mean by pricey but those wheels are billet aluminum as are most custom bike wheels. We feel that these are priced very aggresively because if you google billet motorcycle wheels you will find prices ranging from $1200-$1600 per wheel....that's for 2 wheelers and this is a bargin for 3 wheels.....Hope that helps you understand the price a little better. Thanks for the compliment too! These are not for everyone either, only those who desire something different........I will post more pics later

    A valenced fender like that on the rear would keep the rocks out of the belt. I like the looks, when will it be available?

    Hey tatt2r, do what I did. Tell the kid that when something breaks, Dad's credit card doesn't work anymore, he/she will be much more careful.

    Default I guess I am the only one ?

    Am I the only one that thinks this modified is really ugly.. It appears people must change something just 'because' and not for any good reason, this certainly looks like a quick mod, and nothing else. The original is not perfect, but is sure better than this....................

    I have always been one to believe that the manufacturer knows what is best for your vehicle. Sure, cosmetic mods and comfort mods are likely safe, but going from a 14 inch (or is it 15 inch) tire to a 17 inch certainly not only throws off your odometer and speedometer, it might also throw off your VSC system and change your center of gravity, thus making the bike more dangerous.

    The Spyder is unique as it is...to me, I'll make it brighter from the front and behind for safety reasons. I'll add a few creature comforts and safety features (mirror extensions and the like), and a nicer exhaust system, but I'll never modify the core elements of the bike such that it could make it more dangerous on the road.

    It's great to have a 'more' unique bike, but if it's more likely to get you injured, it's worth no amount of money....

    And guys, Immortal is a member here. I think we could be a little softer in our opinions. This is supposed to be the nicer forum. JMHO.

    First let me address a previous thread, this was not a "quick mod" and aftermarket is not for everyone, some individuals enjoys something different. The manufacture always provides a great platform to start with and for the end user to do with as they please....With that being said, upgrading to our 17" wheel package does not raise the center of gravity of the vehicle or change the VSS system or through off the speedometer reading because we spent timeless hours ensuring that the revs/mile of the wheel & tire combo we put out meet the standards set by Can-Am. So to correct your statement, none of that is affected. What we simply did is called plus-sizing and when done properly, nothing changes. The numbers are the same. THE BIKE IS NOT DANGEROUS WITH THESE MODIFICATIONS. Forums are for informative purposes and consumer discussion with occasional advertising, if you do not have the proper information to back up the statements you make, please do not make them. It is unfair to the other individuals within the community.

    The lights you are looking at are the new fog lights. the headlights are now the Can-Am factory fog lights with an HID up grade. They more than light up the road. The dealer we talked with before buying this kit informed us that the actual headlight is only used as a high beam in Europe and the fog light kit comes standard and is the low beam. So to answer your question, the headlights are high enough.

    Immortal, thanks for taking a bold step. That's what BRP did when they developed the Spyder and you have followed suit with your version. Sure, it's not for everyone, but neither is the Spyder and each of us makes anything from a minor to a major change to "customize" our machine to what suits us. We need more innovators like you, as most of us don't have the time or facilities to do it ourselves.
