Yes. You'll need atleast an almond secondary, if not a lime green. Those are pretty heavy tires at 35 pounds each. they're only 3 pounds lighter than an outlaw at comparable sizes

^^^^:agreed:. Like 27 bucks shipped. Whether you buy or make dont forget the primary tool and secondary spring remover.

if it was me, i'd do lime green. im a low end junkie and dont give a **** about top speed. belt grip is very important to me too. some would say almond is plenty for those tires, but it's really up to you. my top speed with 28 laws and lime green secondary is around 51mph. almond will be 3-5 mph higher. make sure you get the primary puller if you dont already ahve one

also make sure you get secondary springs. they also have almond and bright green primary springs so be careful which one you buy.

I had thoses same tires and was running an almond secondary/ brite green primary and really liked that setup, never had a belt problem pulled hard to around 57(by speedo) after that it was a little slower going, But your not going to want to go that fast with them, they walk all over the road, heck getting to that speed was hard enough keeping it on the road. So i say an almond will be good

i made a lil tool out of parts i got from home depot or lowes.

you need
5/8 allthread
two big nuts and washers to fit that allthread
a piece of flat bar steel
couple bolts with washers and nuts to go through it

drill you a couple holes in the flat bar on the sides so you can adjust the width of the bolts.






metal man made one out of a steel pipe cap, maybe he'll post some pics. mine's similar to the one phreebsd is using in the video in the howto section. make sure before you start you have
primary clutch puller
secondary compressor tool ---^
snap ring pliers
torque wrench that will torque in both directions
