I think you'd need a custom swingarm. I know you can go to 200 on the 1100 with the stock swingarm/rim, but thats about the limit. A 280 is is an 11" wide tire sort of. it's a measure of the tread side to side. Whereas the stock tire is about 7".

a lot of people with a 950 have upgraded to a 180 tire. have heard that a 200 will fit, but also that there are dealerships that won't put on a 200 because they say it won't or that it will but is too close to the fender. so that's probably the widest you can go without having to get a kit which will be over $1K
