cut down radiator shrouds on sm


Recommended Posts

My first time back to the track since modifying my radiator shrouds on my sm. Pleased with the improvement. Less wind buffeting and I actually hit the rev limiter in 5th gear (106mph) on the main straight. I've never been able to rev it to the limiter in 5th before! Running 15/41 gearing with stock bore/cams.

Might want to try a more aerodynamic front fender if the shrouds make that much difference.

I originally cut mine for better aerodynamics while riding street(I ride 80%)but found I liked the look of it chopped as well. I cut the acerbis tecnik front fender and that did help a lot

I like the looks alone, have you run without shrouds, or a bare minimum shroud from some ruined dirt plastics

I'm running like this right now🤣image.jpg

  I want a certain amount of shroud to get more air flow through the radiators on slower tracks like supermoto courses (and street riding)....plus it helps protect the radiators when I fall!

How did you relocate the ignition there? Did you cut some of the headlight shroud for the circular part to lay in there? Could you post more pics please?

  I bought the bike with that already done...not sure if the fairing had to be cut...I'll look at it closer when I get off work.

You need to chop the sub-frame (or build a new one) to get that license tucked up to the seat.

Get some clip-ons handle bars.

Maybe replace the headlight with a big round one and clean up the wiring behind the headlight.

You'd have a pretty slick looking (and capable) cafe racer/offroader.
