Should I use stock tire sizes for Suzuki DZR125L for MiniGP?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I picked up a 2005 Suzuki DZR125L that I want to put street tires on so I can ride with my daughters when they practice MiniGP.  I won't be racing it, just having fun with my girls.  I was told the BT-45 is the option but I can't seem to find any in the stock 90/100-16 and 70/100-19 sizes.  Are there different sizes people use?  Or should I keep hunting for a vendor who has them in stock size?

I see a 100/90-16 that I bet will work fine, a little wider but not too much

the only 19 I see is also 100/90, not sure how well that'll fit on the skinny rim intended for a 70

Yeah, that's what I've found as well. Not sure if that'll work.

In our club, for people on factory 19/16 rims, most are running the BT-45V on their mini's.

On the front: 100/90-19 M/C 57V TL

On the rear: 110/90-16 M/C 59V TL or 120/80-16 M/C 60V TL depending on swingarm width.

This is what the 100/90-19 and 110/90-16 combo looks like on mine before I went full stupid and put 16's front and rear:

This is post stupid:  It now has 120/80-16 Michelin slicks front and rear replacing the BT-45's.

What rim would I get to convert my 19" front to a 16"  Is there a width I would want to go for?

I found a set of discontinued mini SM wheels from KTM North America.  Unfortunately, I've since found out they were the last set they had (worldwide).  The rim manufacturer was Behr, which is now defunct after KTM bought them out.

The KTM hard part wheel sizes are 16x2.5 and, 16x3.5 which made them legal to use in our club (no 17's allowed in Mini class with Victoria Supermoto Club).

Others in the club have converted their 150RB's with 12" GatorRimZ.   I tried a couple of their bikes, and I prefer the feeling of a larger diameter wheel.

Thanks!  That thing is badass!!

Haha thanks man.  Yeah I'm contemplating the next evolution of the bike to make it more useable in our club.. I'm thinking I might try and shoehorn a 150R motor into it because I prefer the ergo's and suspension of the KTM vs the Honda.  The small displacement 2T (105cc) definitely is its weak point hauling around an "adult" sized rider.

Found this pic on the net.  I believe it's a 125.....    That's the only thing in common with the OP's question.   So I realize it's probably not much help with rims and such.  But it's a cool build. 

 

That KTM is saweeeet.  Thanks for posting.  I don't even mind it with the bigger rim but it does look better with the smaller.
