yeah, i'm running 15 front / 40 rear...which appears to be about right at MSRH. it might do slightly better with 14 front, but it is pretty close to peak power on the back straight as it is. make sure your motor is strong, or you will find out shortly on the track.

My Supermoto

pic updated at top too!
i don't have the chain or rear brake on, I need to rebuild the caliper...it appears as if someone rebuilt the caliper but might have put the piston in backwards. also, i need to replace a ton of hardware...I guess this is the downside to creating a motard from a previously motocrossed bike...rust sucks and makes things a pain in the to remove.

ya, i've been toying with the idea of getting them...besides the cost of levers (bike has ASV's), is there many other benefits to them? i've been looking at them, and will probably be getting them soon anyhow...

once i work out the bugs with the rear brake and broken bolt up front, i will install my axle sliders and be pretty much all set. my bolts for my rotors are drilled, so I can go ahead and safety wire those...

i'm so stoked!

Looks great Cliff! Let me know if you plan on putting some fairings and clip-ons on that thing... I think it would look hawt.

I'll hook you up cheap, I'd like to fit them up and see how it works since I plan on doing the project too.

When/ if you get around to it that is.

everything is installed/repaired. The brake piston was put into the caliper backwards, so I fixed that and blead out the air in the lines, and I removed that broken bolt and replaced the hardware. Chain put on. Axle sliders were installed.

Just needing a supermoto fender and some bark busters.

I rode it around through the neighborhood...it's gonna be sweet...i have some small adjustments to make though.

eh, for most part pretty cheap...
i got some really good deals on most of the stuff

So far the current parts list is:
  • Excel Talon Supermoto Wheels
  • Continental Contiforce SM Tires
  • SM Factory Alloy 44T Sprocket
  • EBC Supermoto Brake Kit
  • Renthal Chain
  • Axle Sliders
  • Promotobillet Fastway F.I.T. Handgaurds w/ damper mount
  • Acerbis Supermoto Fender

Parts pending are:
  • Front Forks, cut down/lowered
  • Rear shock, lowered
  • And the parts required to convert the 00-02 look to the 03-05 look (but fashion will come after function/performance)
