Post i want a Supermoto...
so recommend me some ye Motard friendly compadres'!!!

i've been really wanting an upright street bike for a while, i grew up riding dirt bikes and really can't even get into any of the recent offerings for "street" bikes that are out on the market. and so, i'll revert to my roots and go with what i know...

if anyone knows; fill me in on what years might be best, what models might be the most mod worthy, what brands suck, etc... 4-stroke prefferably.

i'm most likely looking for something used, unless i get really inspired. and i'm not afraid to add lights as long as the bike can handle it (i.e. already has the correct stator).

go... :noes:

Find dirt bike, convert.

Or you could go with something like a CRF250M:

upwards of total $4k if need be.

i've considered getting an old dirt bike and going from there for sure but want some info. i know it may sound stupid but i think at least an 400 or larger would work, and i would like to swap some street 17's with caliper and rotors onto it first thing.

I would say get an XR 650L on the cheap. (they have been made for years)
then do the wheels/tires/brakes. No messing with stators or DMV headaches.
Also got plenty of power for highway use.

Our bare bones kit, is just that. The basic tools of the trade to get you sliding into supermoto. Still, bare bones as it is, this is our top selling supermoto conversion kit because it delivers great value in a bomb proof package with everything you need to seal the deal in supermoto for street or racing. The central protagonist of this kit is the Warp 9 wheel, rotor and sprocket package that's really a wallet-pleasing gem of a set-up. Yes, it's complete with everything you need. Yes it's as good as the more expensive stuff. Yes, you can ride on the street with it, yes you can race with it. Comes with the Warp 9 Supermoto Wheels and we have fitments for nearly every great supermoto out there. We include either the Continental Supermoto tires or the more aggressive AVON Distanzia tires for those supermoto riders who like a little teeth on their tire. And we top off this bannana split of a deal with cherry in the form of a supermoto fender from Acerbis. Tires are DOT approved tires.

All kits are hand-assembled and custom made to order.




Features
Front and rear tires
17x3.50 front mated with a 17x4.25 rear. supermoto wheels
Anodized 7000 Series Aluminum Rim.
Front & Rear Heavy Duty Bridgestone Supermoto Tubes
Stainless Steel Spokes and Nipples
Aluminum Hub with stock or high-quality chrome appearance but Stronger
Stainless Steel Wave Brake 320MM Rotor
Anodized Brake Caliper Relocator
Rear Steel Rotor
7075 T6 Aluminum Sprocket, 44T tooth
Non-O-ring chain
NAK Seals
OEM Bearings
Zinc Plated Nyloc Hardware


the price wasn't all that bad considering all that you get with it.

no front master, just a relocation kit to use the stocker. ought to give me plenty of power with the upgraded pads.
