xl350 trials modifications

Recommended Posts

Hello,I bought a sideport xl350 that I will use mostly for woods/trail/cross country type riding.However the idea of riding a few vintage type trial events sounds fun.My question is what modifications would I need to do other than the obvious? (high pipe,skinny seat and tank,rear set pegs,gearing,tires,etc.)Keep in mind at the most I might ride it as a trialer 2 or 3 times a year .thanks

Considering what you'll spend to make your bike Trials-worthy for only 2 or 3 uses a year, I'd look around for a Trials bike. If you'll be riding AHRMA Trials, you'll be competing in the Modern Classic class against the best Trials bikes in the world form the 1970s. (It would be like taking a station wagon to a roadrace course!)

You'll have to do so many mods that you'll lose most of your woods/trail/cross-country flexibility. I'd look for a Trials bike...
