If anybody is thinking of Converting their bike over, here are some tips and pitfalls on how to do it. It has been a project 8 months in the making. Wheels- I found that the cheapest way to get your 17 inch rims is to buy a set of stock hubs, Buchanan Rims, and Talon Spokes. If you get a front hub from talon you have to get a 650R oversized brake rotor and it still wont fit. I ended up on the front having to add a spacer to push the caliper over 1/8 inch so that I did not have metal on metal. TRUST ME ON STOCK HUBS. YOU CAN SAVE A TON OF MONEY USING STOCK ROTORS AND BRAKES. I have a 3.25 rear rim that will hold a 160/17 rear but I do get a little cutting on the shoulder of the tire, but not too bad. Shocks- I really loosened up the rear to allow the seat to compress down more freely and have the rebound set way out. It allows the rear to hug the road while the bike is flexing. The front I added a 1 inch piece of PVC to reduce dive. and loosened up as well. I HAVE NO CHATTER which is one of the biggest complaints in Motard Racing. Engine-I bought Caps to block off and remove all the emission garbage on the bike and rejetted the bike after adding new exhaust. Exhaust- Added a big gun exhaust which has made it the loudest bike on the planet. Plus removeing the stock exhaust got rid of an addtional 35 lbs. Intake- The bike doesn't breath well enough stock so I cut 4 - 1/2 inch holes in the airbox to let it breath. Tires- Dunlop D208 GP "A" Mediums. And these tires are glued to the road. Looks- Remove all turn signals and rear brake light assembly from the bike. If your on the road you will need hand signals. I drilled four holes in the rear fender and mounted the plate to it. To keep it street legal I needed a Rear brake Light. So where the old rubber boot mounts up to the bike you can perfectly fit the brake light cover from the XR200. Then the lights were not hard to hook up. You have three wires. Two Greens hook up the brake light and brown and green hook up the running light. I bought the bulbs at radio shack. The replaced the front fender with a short, stubby fender that makes it look like a ducks bill. Belly Pan- In order to race a Supermotard on a Road Race Course you have to have an oil catch pan that will hold the contents of the engine. I cut and welded one out of sheet metal and painted it white. It is a good fit. You will need to buy a piece of metal 24"x15" and thin. Bend it three inches on each side for the length then fold up to mount over the engine protection bar. Weld the pan together and the uses the right fot peg to mount it to the bike and then safety wire everywhere else. Zip Ties will work too. Don't forget to safety wire everything. I have yet to drop in a Hot Cam for it, I am waiting for the results of my Supermotard Race on the 24th of April to see if I am going to need it. The bike is much lighter and faster, as well as more torque. My father calls it a KLR on steroids. Everybody who sees it ask if it is a 200cc. I can get the bike to 120mph now and it is reasonable stable at that speed. Much better than the shake and wobble at 85mph. Since modified I can honestly say that is the funnest motorcycle I own. I prefer to ride it through traffic more so than my GSXR1000. It's loud, obnoxius, burps flames, smells bad, and will beat any four wheeled vehicle off the line as well as riding down sidewalks in rush hour, Or over medians. People can hear me coming a mile away. It's not nearlt as tall so I can put my feet flat on the ground now and I am only 5'9. During high speed cornering it is so forgiving to throttle and brake inputs it is scary. There is really nothing this bike cant do. She is my "Animul Mutha"
