Motard wheels on order!

Finally pulled the trigger and got a set of motard wheels for my CRF. Should be here in about a week. I cannot wait to get them on the bike and take it for a spin.

Hoping to have it put together to ride MSRC with LSTD. I would imagine the 1.3 mile track is fun on a tard.

Anything else I will need for a bare bones motard? I am looking for a brake rotor and caliper bracket. Also need to pick up some gearing. Any ideas on where to start on gearing? Bike has 13-49 on it, so I figured get a 15 front and probably a 37-39 rear and a 42-44 rear. Any suggestions for gearing for the local tracks would be appreciated.

I bought a used set from a guy of SMJ.

Rad hubs with Behr rims, 16.5 front and 5" rear. Already has Dunlop slicks mounted.

Nice choice. Any idea what brake set-up you are going to run?

Not real sure yet. Probably going to start out with an oversized rotor and caliper braket, probably either MotoMaster or Braking.

I am going to feel out using the CRF as a motard. That is why I wanted to start out with a bare bones build. If it works out I will probably upgrade to a bigger caliper.

Kind of looking for some advice/personal input on set ups. I have seen numerous CRF's just running the caliper relocation bracket and stock caliper. Not sure if that is because of cost or because the stock caliper will do a good job. It looks awful small to me though!
