Xr400 convert

Recommended Posts

Hey I want to convert my xr400 to a supermoto but still be able to swap out to dirt. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as wheels and tires and if there is anywhere in so cal that does conversions thanks for the help

I found genuine XR400M rims & had them laced up to XR400R hubs. All up cost including tyres, tubes around 600 US. XR4 standard rear hubs have 32 spokes most other bikes have 36. You can also use early model CBR rims with custom spacers I believe. With disc's & sprockets already fitted, it's a 15/20min swap over.

Ok thanks, like what year and model for cbr? I'm a machinist so I have access to lathes and tooling. Machining a spacer will be easy just not certain on what kind of material I would use.

ZZR 250 wheels work as well, but again you need spacer a and a caliper relocation bracket for the smaller front, your better off with the cbr or zzr wheels as you get a cush drive.
