HELP ME BUILD custom FZ-09 Off-Road Adventure bike!!

sup dudes!

so I Just moved back to California and been looking to replace my GROM with something a little more appropriate for the area. LOVE my 181 bbk mini, but my daughter complains about the excessive vibrations and long rides are a little rough. Never truly desired a grom but after having my 600rr, sumo wr450, and 1000rr all stolen within 6 months in south Florida - I stumbled across it craigslist and thought it would be perfect to shove in my elevator and keep in my 10th floor condo: 14478494_1083682268405586_25310557783625

Been looking out for a EFI wr450 to replace it, but understand plating it is a headache im still a bit worried about the buzziness from the single cylinder at sustained speeds... so the hunt for the perfect bike has dragged on and I haven't been completely satisfied with anything... until I googled "off road fz 09" and landed on this!:

this &%$#@!er is perfect in every way and I NEED to build it!!

 

Looks like it will need forks, front brake setup, fender, 19/17" wheels, tires, gearing, and rear suspension to get a solid base going.... wondering if any of you could recommend some stuff!

 

 

 

 

 

It looks cool but too heavy and too much hp for dirt. I rode a friends CB500X with Ralley Raid stage 3 kit, it's what the doctor ordered. 70 across the desert, jumped it, pounded it, smooth parallel twin on road, was really impressed. th59dfnhnv5c3d4tdodb.jpg

That FZ09 weighs 418lbs wet compared to the cb500x at 427

plus, I will be on the street 95% of the time

pretty dedicated with this..

Ok, if you're 95% street then it'll be good.
