CRF150 Dirt to Street

I have a stock 2003 CRF150 and I am intrested in converting it to street. I was intrested in knowing if I could just put a set of street tires on the factory wheels or would I have to change them out. If I can just swap out tires what size would be best.

it would be better to swap out wheels, it's gonna be hard to get a good selection of tires for the stock sizes if you want to run a street or scooter tire on the bike. 17" wheels are what you should be getting!

You can not just put on tires and start ridin' the street... Not legally anyway.

Gotta have registration, insurance, license plates, lights (head,brake and tail) along with mirrors a whistle and 2 life jackets...



Ok maybe not the whistle and life jackets but you get the point.

There is a how to website out there that shows you how to wind your own stator on a XR100, which I think is about the same as your 150. Total cost is about $35 and it put out like 130 watts.

Two genius minds think alike. Thanx that is exactly what I wanted to know, let me just make sure those are still the stock wheels right? Tubeless or tube?
