Hello from Finland!

I just finished my WR400 supermoto

It feels great to drive

3,5x17 front and 5,0x17 rear fits fine.

What about chain clearance on the 5" rim.

Mine is too close on a 5" Exell ,cush drive Talon hub so i bought a non o-ring chain....better. The 4.25" rim seems to be a better size.....

Here's my 02 426. I'm running 3" front, 4" rear 17s with 110/70 front and 150/70 rear tyres. I have just enough chain clearance (ie a 160 tyre would hit) however my rear rim is not offset at all.

I've thought of doing that to my 02. How much $$ do you have invested?

Hi, thanks for the interest. If you have a look in my garage, I've got all the prices of my mods listed, they're reasonably accurate. Basically I bought the bike for NZ$4800 and spent about NZ$2000 on the supermotard conversion. What I haven't listed yet is the Vortex X-10 ignition I ordered for it a week ago which cost me another NZ$615 (the original CDI shat itself). I don't plan on getting my money back on the bike, if I ever sell it that is :eek:.

very nice bikes. you guys have what i want to put together. has any one tried the warp 9 rims. i can get them for like 880 with a front 320mm rotor and a rear sproket. What is everyone running for sproket size?

i have already ordered the baja light kit with mini led blinkers upgrade and

vapor computer.

next is the rims and tires.

you can count on at least a 2 inch drop . I'll snap a pic side by side of my wr450 sm and my crf250x dirt if you'd like . I can only touch one foot at a time on the crf , and I touch nearly flat footed on the wr .

the rack is from promoto billet.

just a quick question guys wot sprockets you runnin?

14/36 for fun most of the time

15/36 for lots of road work , longest 1st gear ever ,

make sure you get a 4.25 inch rear wheel dont go for a five inch.

and yes your bike will drop loads with 17 inch wheels dude.

I have a 5 inch rim and ,I also think the 5 inch rim is too hard to get lined up right. so a 4.5 or a 4.25 would be better , Don't get a 5 inch unless you are ready to do a bit of machining spacers to make it fit.
