  1. Ok guys... Lets see some of your rides Heres mine: I dont race it or anything, just a toy to cruise around town on.
  2. So i have a 2009 kx450f with efi and I'm trying to hook up lights and turn signals and all of that good stuff to make it street legal. I know I need to tap into the bikes power supply to power all of this but I don't know where that would be. Should I go through the cdi or the efi and if so where would that be.
  3. I'm new here, thought i'd show you my bike! I bought it last year for €250, which is an absolute steal! The bike is in epic condition, all original plastic pieces are there, and no shitty replacement parts. Also got 2 brand new genuine honda radiators on it. The previous owner had just rebuild the engine ( piston, cranck, bearings, gears ) and the front suspension. Only thing he didn't care about are the looks. So i've always wanted a street legal 2 stroke SM. This not being a CR500 but it's the next best thing. I love steel CR's since my first bike was a highly modified CR125 1996. I've also owned a KX250 and YZ125 but didn't like them as i did the honda's. I've rebuild the bike from the ground up, but i'm not going to show all the basic rebuild pics. Here's what i did so far. Handy:bannana: New original honda rads Finished in enduro trim with new plastics Bought some wheels and fatbar:thumbup: I believe these are for CR(F)s with the bigger axles.The rear hub required a 25mm axle, so a made an aluminium adapter on the lathe. 20mm ID 25mm OD. Spacers didn't even need modification. Wheels are in!:D Ordered these graphics. Think i will order some extra radiator plastics as want to keep the original ones with the purple seat intact. "new" rear shock. The one that is now in the bike is not 2way adjustable. ( if you watch closely, you see a missing brake lever.. Yea i crashed the bike the first ride :$) Now the focus is on getting a plate on it, as well as some lights. Oh and a 320mm brake setup. Please share your thoughts of this bike with me! What should I do next? Total spend €1015. Remember everything on the bike is as new.
  4. *Moved from sportbike forum Hey All, A while back a racer buddy explained to me that the best combo for tire size with lean angle in mind (for supermotos) is to have the front and rear tire as close to each other in terms of size and profile as possible for best and smoothest results in learning. I tried to find more info about it but found many contradictions. Some said 150 better, some said 140. And at that, they were talking about different tire models/mfgs and combinations. I tend to believe that the thinner rear tire gets you better/quicker/smoother lean and is also lighter weight so better response. But I'd like some more opinions or some stats if you have any. My Question: Is a setup of 120/70/17 and 140/70/17 on 4.25" rims, going to get you smoother and more stable results than a 160 or 150 rear? My current setup is Conti Attack SM's 120/140 (1.5K miles on them and loving it) Thanks for any help!
  5. Hey everyone I know I'll probably hear some sh!t for this post but whatever. So the deal is I need to know if I can put 16" on the rear or maybe even a 17". The bike I have comes 17/14 and I'm looking 17/16 or 17/17. I think it'll be possible with swingarm extensions and I realize I might have to mess with the gearing. Has anyone else tried this ? If so please post some pics. Thanks
  6. *Mods please Delete this thread.

  7. Hello all, I am hoping that someone might be able to give me some dimensions on a Behr Germany Supermoto wheel. It came off a 520SX. The part number on it is H2-10225-05.03-E-DOT-D The dimension I am looking for is the difference between the disc brake and the rim. I need this dimension to figure out how the hub is centered in the rim and how offset it may be from BEHR. I'm using this wheel in a custom application and so I am having a local wheel builder put it together. Trouble is I just took the wheel apart to save him the hassle and myself the money and now he would like the original dimension for a starting point. DOH! I know, noob mistake. If anyone can help me out I would so greatly appreciate it.
  8. looking for supermoto guys or girls to brap with. so far theirs 3 of us. looking for a couple more to ride with and get lost and explore with and do fun shit with, no creeps, ass holes, scummy people. keep it real, supermotos, trying to keep it safe and fun and fairly legal and no douchery. theirs a time and place for everything and we dont need tickets and to get screwed up or anything. i sound like a priest or some little bitch saying that but i know alot of shitty people in the world so yea i dont care. 3 of us mid 20s, single and free to ride almost all summer other than work getting in the way of riding. we usually just get lost on back roads, towns, wherever the road takes us and cool places. its cool. so hit me up we would love a couple more cool people to chill with and ride with and do supermoto shit with. warren, morris, sussex county areas, washington, hackettstown, even pburg and stuff we ride wherever pretty much, but those general areas. we go out to pa along the deleware alot and stuff, its fun, alright im done typing, just hit me up, we arent bad dudes. id put pics of our bikes and us up and stuff but i dont have any on my computer so, idk just hit me up....
  9. Hello! Ive had my good ol' kx 250 03mod for a few years now, and i want to freshen it up a bit, paint the frame and go over engine, suspension and brakes before slapping on some supermoto rims. I found a really cheap set of rims close to me, they were BEHR rims, front 3.5 x 17, rear 5 x 17. Will these fit my KX? I was looking at the wave9 rims website, and if i choose my bike model i only get 4.25 x 17 as option for the rear... Really hope someone can help me out with this, any tips and answers are warmly welcome. Thanks.
  10. This year I decided to finally bite the bullet and build a conversion kit to switch my 2014 450 back and forth from dirt to street. I bought this bike new in 14 and it has been the best bike i've ever owned. When I started to build the setup I realized it was very hard to find good information on what setups worked and what didn't. I though I would share what worked for me and some pictures of how it turned out. It hard to find words to describe how fun this bike is now on the street. It is unreal how much fun this bike is in both setups now. Here are a few of the mods I had done previously. -FMF powercore exhaust -Stillwell suspension full revlave -JD jet kit -Sicass racing led turn signals -Beta hard seat foam -EE hand Guards -Beta sharkfin -Kenda trackmaster II w/ heavy duty tubes -Twin air filter -Earth x battery I wanted to be able to swap the complete wheel set in 30 minutes and be on either dirt or street so here's what I ended up with... -SM suspension settings from Stilwell -Beta 320mm front rotor conversion with adapter -Innteck rear rotor -Talon 45t red rear sprocket -Hub saver hardware -Polisport front fender (to be modified) KSR built my wheelset for me... -SM Platinum pro 17x3.5 and 17x5 rims in black -SM Platinum pro hubs in red -Bulldog spokes with red nipples -Michelin pilot power 120/60 front 160/60 rear Some things I learned along the way.... -The upper chain guard has to go for clearance but I was able to cut it down and save the front 2" still as a tire guard from chain slap -The lower guide bolts have to be removed to install the tire. -The front brake line and speedo cable have to be secured to the fork guard to prevent it from rubbing the rim. I drilled a small hole and ran a zip tie. -I couldn't find a good aftermarket front fender so I ended up with a polisport fender I cut down. I layed out a shape very similar to the factory angles with a template so both sides match and trimmed with a jig saw. After it was cut I sanded the edges to give it a factory like curves and re-melted it with a propane lighter. It looks factory and really makes the front end. All in all it cost about $2k but it was worth every penny! Anyone on the fence should do it! you wont regret it. Not many bikes look as good as a Beta in SM trim -Nate
  11. Hey Guys, This is my first time posting in this section of forum. I was looking for some advise/insight from KTM owners. Background: I currently ride a 2006 plated CRF450x. I mostly use this bike to ride to some local trails (I live in Columbia, SC) and to zip around town occasional. I have it geared 13/48 and cruise at 45 mph when I'm on the road. If I'm riding more than about 30 minutes from my house, I trailer the bike to the riding area. I ride trails moderately aggressively, as I am fairly inexperienced. I don't race or ride motocross. I've ridden on a track maybe twice. I currently have Kenda K270 tires on the front and rear. The bike has an FMF 4.1 full system (done by previous owner) The only mods I have done are opened up air box, re-jet the carb, finger adjustable fuel screw, and No Toil cageless air filter (b/c it easier to get in and out and the notoil oil makes for easy cleaning) I change the engine oil at maximum interval of 8 hours, and the transmission oil and oil filter at a maximum interval of 16 hours. I clean the air filter every 2 or 3 rides, depending on how dirty it is (its not too dusty were I ride). The CRF has about 175 hours on it, and it has yet to need a valve adjustment. I checked them recently and one intake was about 0.0005" off nominal. I like the bike, but in doing some research, I think a KTM 450 might be a better bike for my type of riding. I like the idea of sixth gear, so I can be geared low for the trails but still do (hopefully) 55 mph on the road for sustained periods. I found a plated 2010 XC-W 450 on craigslist in Orlando that I'm interested in. It has 44.2 hours and 1890 miles (mostly street) on it. It comes with dirt wheels and tires as well as 17" supermoto wheels and tires. So hear is my question: Is the KTM more reliable/better for light dual sport/supermoto use than the CRF 450? I'm not worried about on-road comfort, I don't ride for long periods and I'll just change the seat if it gets annoying. Basically I just want something that will go a longer between major services intervals. Like with the CRF, I'm not planing on any interstate riding. If I'm going to ride off road more than 20 miles from my house, I'll haul the bike there rather than ride it. Any advice/tips/comments would be appreciated.
  12. Looking for a set of motard wheels for my 2008 Beta RS 525. Not having any luck finding a set. warp 9 said they dont have hubs for the 08s. Thought i read somewhere that ktm wheels were compatable?
  13. Hey guys really need some advice. I parked my bike in the garage the other day running just fine, but today when I went to hop on it it would not start. It turns over like a top, but won't even try to start. List of things I have tried. i removed the spark plug and replaced it. Also made sure I had spark. i tried spraying starter fluid inside carb with no result. I removed both the clutch and kickstand safety. I also just tried roll starting it. It was turning over but once again did not even try to start up. please help I do not know what else to try or check thanks!
  14. Hi all, i just got my 500 and couldn't be happier. Im looking for some advice my best option for setting up my front and rear suspension. I ride a supermoto set up 98% on street and weigh 240 geared up. Heres some eye candy for y'all. Thanks in advance for any and all help!
  15. Looking for other hooligans in the West Alabama area looking to get into general shenanigans. I ride every other weekend and can ride during the week on certain days. DIrt, street, dirt roads, wheelies, jumps (on or off road) IDC I do any kind of riding. I used to ride dirtbikes then got in to aggressive sportbike riding for a while so i can ride whatever. If you dont like shenanigans i can ride conservatively as well. I just want people to ride with.
  16. Just got a drz400sm this month and looking for some people to ride with. Wondering if there are any supermotos or dual sports here in Gastonia. I saw an SM on Franklin right before I got mine but haven't since.
  17. Ok so i put my rims and tires on for my supermoto conversion and it looks bad ass, i ordered a high out put stator to get rid of the problem i had with the baja designs light kit, so im installing it tonight, im curious as to whether or not i will need a new battery or special kind of battery for the new stator. its a trail tech high out put stator for my 2013 wr250f. i mean i guess ill find out tonight after i install it. i bought a new battery anyway that hopefully works out ok with no problems. but just curious if anybody else has experience with this.
  18. Bought a 2016 Suzuki DR-Z400SM back in September, put two hundred miles on it or so and then bought a full Yoshimura RS2 system for it. Worked well for about 1,000 miles and then I noticed i have an exhaust leak where the header meets the engine. The local shop says the gasket has gone bad. I looked at the gasket compared to the stock one the other night and noticed the Yoshi gasket is just flat while the stock one has a ridge around the pipe. Anyway, I need to replace the gasket, and I was hoping to just take the stock one off the old exhaust and then put it on the new one, but they dont just slide off. So, how does one change a gasket? Thanks.

I realised quickly that i bought with out going it through Thoroughly enough with the seller. Many wiring and engine solution could have been done better by a toddler. Very Well i Got The bike to run Smooth and good, Then all of a sudden every single piece of light on this non battery bike went Dark, i had led blinkers, stop light etc. Working like a charm, now its all gone, and The donkey who did The wiring left no fuses, what to do? What could have died? Cant Seem to find Any voltage anywhere? Thanks for Your help!

  22. Hey guys I plan to buy a new bike next month and need your help deciding. I'm stuck between an fz07 and a Drz400sm. I love both of the bikes and will be using the bike I end up buying for a little bit of everything (commuting,wheelies,twisties,etc.). I would greatly appreciate any advice or input anyone has. I know they are both fun bikes, but is one more fun than the other? Would the drz be able to handle an hour or two trip on the highway from time to time? Will I get bored with one quicker than the other? What is it that you guys love about your fz07 or Drz400sm? Please just give me some opinions.
  23. anyone who has converted a 250 dirtbike to supermoto knows the stock gearing with sprockets and everything sucks for road use, this being my first conversion i had no idea until i actually took it on a street ride on the dirt tires and stock gearing... i havent yet gotten my smaller sprocket but how much will going from the stock 50tooth sprocket to a 43tooth sprocket help for street riding so im not rev limiting the shit out of my bike at 50mph. also debating on going a tooth or 2 bigger on the front... im already stuck with the wr250f model not the wr250r model and ordered rims and everything for it and put mad money into it so anything to help and words of wisdom would be appreciated.
  24. Appologies for the book but bare with me here, in need of some input... Ok, so i bought a wr250f it wasnt street legal i made it legal and got plated through south dakota. I did a baja designs enduro lighting harness kit with the stator modification. Put an fmf slip on exhaust on it and jetted the carb. I forget what jets i used and i put an air fuel mixture screw in it. Problem1.After my baja kit i put on it wouldnt start. Turned out that the solenoid under the seat was loose or something i pushed down on it when it was clicking and it started running again. Problem 2.Went riding, it ran great on the trails. Went riding for a day or 2 on the street, after a while the electric start stopped working and it became a bitch to kick over. It started making the same click noise like when the battery is dead under the seat. Idk whats up with that. Then on the street i was riding and the bike stopped having power in the throttle i would pin it full throttle and it wouldnt take off like it usuallt does. I pulled over, let it sit for 5min and kicked it over again and the power i had came back in the throttle. It did that 2 more times durring the ride and i went home. Do you think this is a computer issue, a carb issue, fuel air ratio issue. Im going to do an airbox mod on it thiss weekend maybe thatll help. Problem3. I ordered some rims and stuff from warp9 so i can sumo it out and i was curious on what size sprocket would make my gears longer and better so im not maxing my rpms out at 40mph. I can do a solid 65mph on the bike but thats like pushing it and im in 5th gear as soon as i hit like 30mph, id love 6gears but im trying to avoid regearing the bike and using a smaller sprocket in the rear and maybe a tooth or 2 bigger in the front i guess, i still wanna be able to pull wheelies. I feel like im gonna blow the motor if i leave it alone and just ride street with it. Mind you this was the wr250f=for off road use only. not the wr250r=street legal from factory, i live in nj. I should have just got the street legal one or a supermoto already done but i wanted to build one and make it custom for me. I already put alot of money in to it and dont even own it 100% yet so im not trying to get rid of it anytime soon. Im not even done with it yet.
  25. Hey guys! Resorting back to the ol' forum research; I have had my new ktm 500 for about 4 months now and I love it. While the '11 crf450 gathers dust I figured I mine as well sell it and pick up some new rims for a supermoto setup on the 500. I dig the 17" x 3.5" front (more practical tire choices) and I am wondering if a 5" rear will fit with the right tire. Question is, which f****** wheels will fit the 2017 ktm 500??! Been calling all over and lookin up part numbers and doin research online and I still can't get a definite answer so here I am. I don't know what WILL work?! Gonna drop the extra $$ on Marchesini wheels but I can only find info for the 2016 model on their website, not the 2017. Would even consider alpina or excel rims if someone can just lead me to the wheels that will definitely fit!! Getting anxious and really annoyed of the shallow-lean-angle turns on the knobbies! Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
