So for the 150, if I want per drilled rims, how many holes do I want them to have?

Buchanan's charges $1.40 per hole for drilling or $43 per wheel for punching. So if he has to send them out to get drilled or punched it's going to cost. I'm not sure he would have to do those with the wheels you suggested as they make no mention of drilling.
In the purchase order they ask you 32 or 36 hole. I assumed this was for drilling and punching holes...

You would need the year/make/model for drilling. The amount of holes is not a matter of preference. If your hub has 28 holes, you need 28 hole wheels, if it has 32 holes, you need 32 hole wheels and so on. Then they need to drill those holes for the proper spoke angle for your specific application. Procycle does all of that for you. Like I said the wheels are cheap, it's the custom work that costs.

Should I plan to up the braking power on the front end if I plan to take this to GSS?

I'll let someone else chime in on this as I'm not too sure that it would be necessary on a 150, but then again upgrading brakes is never a bad idea. If there's one of big rotor ebc kits for it, it can't hurt to have at least that.

A tarded 150 would be fun as but after spending money on wheels, brakes, suspension setup, tires, etc., you might as well just find a cheap one already setup. They come around every couple of months.

I have ridden a tarded 150f, fun but alittle down on power

drilling the hubs for HD spokes is super easy, if your not sure about it get with chad he can hook you up. I know he can get buchanan spokes not sure about excels, another good motard wheel is made by rad mag, I have them on my 110.(http://www.radmfg.com/)

suspension just get the HD springs front and rear and you will be fin, no need at spending alot of money on it. brakes arent bad on it either

I was doing some reading, and there seem to be a lot of people putting bt45 tires on the stock CRF150f wheels. This is tempting, has anyone here tried that?

I have ridden yours and the the one tom had.. they both had good torque but lacked some on top end, considering its a 150


overall there a fun bike, just dont invest too much.. like others mentioned the money you "could" spend would run you close to a price of picking up a used drz or something comparable thats already setup

This bike is free, so I don't mind spending a little. But yeah, I don't plan on getting too crazy, as I'll want a bigger one soon so we can tard together.

For now I think I'm going to throw some BT45s on the stock wheels, knuckle guards, and some exhaust. If I come across a set of rims in the near future I'll pick em up for the right price. My neighbors are gonna hate me
