Semimotard bobber rat 600

8 posts in this topic

She's relegated to full time street trim now with a Wiseco 11:1 piston and 18" wheels front and back. Very smooth power with the new piston and handles much better with an 18" front as opposed to the 21". Lot's of fun.

Now I just have to get some real mirrors to up the safety factor and keep an eye out for cops!....

that's a nice bike. i'd love to buy an older bike like that to tear around town on. i've seen some pretty nice older xr's for under $1000 on craigslist that really tempt me. good job.

How'd ya handle that 18 inch front? Spokes and rim?

That woulda been the economical way but I wanted a fairly easy quick change between dirt and street. I went with a RAD hub and excel complete wheel from East Coast Wheel. That way I can keep my 21 shod with a knobby and all I have to swap is the rotor.

I wasn't super happy with the trueness of the wheel as delivered. That took a while to true, and I had to trim .040" from the left side spacer to get the rotor to line up properly with the caliper. What they actually sent me was a 650R wheel with custom spacers. Not too bad though. I'm about 80% happy with their service.

Hate to bother you BUT....did that hub have a speedo drive???

Negative. Wouldn't have been accurate with an 18" wheel anyway.
