Rear tires hitting bodywork on Scrambler 1000XP

New '19 Scrambler 1000 XP here, running Maxxis Ceros 26x11R14 in the rear. The tires are hitting the bodywork where the rear body meets the footwell, when landing after a jump or hitting a deep hole.

My buddy has the exact same issue with Maxxiss Bighorns so I assume this is a known issue. How do people typically solve this? I'm considering to heat the bodywork and push it half an inch away.

Forgive me but how would stock offset rims help in this situation? Where the tires are running is under the fender not on the fender flare. Plus those rims look like stock ones to me.


My suggestion would be to stiffen the shocks up a bit. That or trim the fender some.

I had the same issue until I swapped out to Elkas. If you have the settings on those shocks try stiffening the high speed compression up 2 clicks at a time and try them out. If you get all the way stiff on the high speed compression and it's still hitting you may need a stiffer set of springs. I'm 6'-4" and 280lbs so my springs will look a little beefier, but I attached a pic so you can see how much stiffer my springs look. The shock at the top is the rear one.
