This is a Honda Dominator 650, I want to tard it out. I'm thinking of how to do this, has anyone here any experience in what to do? I was thinking of putting on some cr450 forks in the front and doing a few upgrades to make the engine have more torque, any suggestions and comments welcome.

I don't want to make it just look like a tard, where'd the fun be in that? I want to know if anyone here has had any experience with making an offroad bike into a tard before.

That's a cool bike. So big and rugged looking. Great apocalypse bike.
Almost hate to see it get molested.
If I were you, I'd just throw some street rubber on it and go have some fun.

i think it would be a perfect platform for a street tard...it might not be the best for a true offroad/onroad sumo racer though.

taking modern forks could work, but careful measurements and possibly some machining and time on a press might be required.

i am all for one to make their bike theirs...i say, "Go for it!"

and all of my offroad to sumo conversions were very straight forward because products were already available on the market.

doh, ya, i meant to say it would be easier to just relace the hubs with new rims, spokes, tubes, and rubber.

make it yours!
