Tire Diameter / SpeedoDRD calibration on converted 250L
*pic is my goal if I can or at least as close*
Hi there, I'm currently looking at buying a second hand KTM EXC 450 and converting to supermoto. I have converted a DRZ400E but everyone knows they are piss easy. I have read a bit about exc sumo rim sizes and have found a few people struggle with chain rubbing on rear with 4.25x17.
Just wanting any tips or advice from someone who has done it before and what works best.
Also any other tips or advice for converting to sumo (etc. exhausts, steering dampers, handbrake setup, frame sliders/protection, hand guards, any thing else that is a must for this model).
I live in New Zealand and don't mind spending a bit on parts but would like to buy the rims here as it would be faster/a lot cheaper.
Any advice is appreciated, cheers.

Converting a 2017 KTM 500 EXC-F to supermoto. Looking for some insight into what brand wheel to buy. I live in Canada and couldn’t find many options so I’m probably going to buy something internationally. Looking for decent wheels but not necessarily the best/most expensive.
So far I’ve been leaning towards getting VMX wheels. I heard that Excels were not as strong as Warp 9 wheels, but I’ve also heard mixed reviews on Warp 9’s.
I’m not opposed to cheaper Chinese wheels as long as they are decent. Although stuff from China usually means poor quality and poor consistency.
If this topic was already discussed can someone post the link, I’m new to thumper talk and not sure what I’m doing.. Thanks in advance. 🤘🏼
For sale is a set of Warp 9 supermoto wheels in excellent condition. Black rims, red hubs, silver spokes + nipples. They came off of my 2015 Honda CRF450x. I mainly ride enduros and can't justify having them anymore. They show very little signs of wear with no dings or dents. I will be uploading pictures of them in the near future. These wheels run about $1000 new for a set. Buyer pays shipping, unless they can be picked up in person. If you're interested shoot me an email and I'll get back to you quickly. Thanks!
