Yz 450f 2006 Bare Essentials For Track Conversion?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, So ive been considering making my yz into a supermoto.

I would not be doing a full streel legal conversion, so my question is with budget in mind what do i need hit the track?

 

I read somewhere that you can run DOT tires on stock rims? Ive looked on ebay and saw a full rim set up for around $1000 is that necessary at first?

My bike currentley has a oversized 270 front rotor and +9 flywheel.

You can take your bike to the track with normal wheels and street tires just for some practice time.

If you are a real good rider you might be just okay. However the guys that can ride with real wheels 320mm disc and slicks will fly by.

Avon Distanza's will fit 21/18 rims, I think its called sportsman class.  Tire pressure and compression / rebound tuning required, also smaller rear sprocket (-3 or -5) or +1 front sprocket.
