supermoto conversion

just got done with the longhorn trackdays from the 8th and 9th, definately a blast but it was awesome watching the pros play around on their motards and trying to figure out how much and how hard it would be to convert my own motocross bike to play around with on the track. I have an 01 Suzuki 125

First off, a 125 wouldn't be that great for supermotard. Mainly because they don't have a very high top speed, and you'd be replacing top ends more often

Get some suspention and 17" wheels with race rubber and let'er rip. Gearing will take care of the top end, and you'd be suprised the corner speed you can carry.

17's are the preferred wheel size, but you can throw some DOT tires on your stock wheels and get your feet wet in supermoto. If you like it, save some money for some 17's and go from there. mekrew hit the nail on the head with www.supermotojunkie.com That's a great sight with TONS of useful information. If you ever have motard questions, PM them to me and I'll gladly help you out. Oh yeah, if you take the 125 to the track, buy yourself some Moose handguards with slider ends, or you'll be changing levers quite often.

Track is definitely awesome. I can't wait to do it again.

Oh and the street riding on a motard is ultra fun :notworthy

dumbest advice right here. you act lik he'll need that top end at first anway..........i bet your think a 600 is a shitty track bike because it's top speed can't match the 1000

I bet he has no bike:eh: , and he's sitting on the computer right next to bikerboyz, and they're trying to see who can give out the most useless advice on the Inet
