2005 KLR 250 Motard

Recommended Posts

Has anybody tried doing this? Any thoughts (besides "don't bother", etc.,etc.) I'm looking for constructive ideas, not 1,000 reasons not to... I have a great low mileage KLR to use for a test bed. I was toying with the idea of some street tires and maybe different sprockets... something low cost and possibly fun!

Only positive thoughts please. Another bike is out of the question. I want to play with the toys I have.

PS: It's not for racing, it's just for tooling around on. 🙂

Thanks in advance.

Gerry

I bought some Michellin Scorpio tires and love it. I've put almost 3000 miles on my bike in the past 8 months or so since I have had the tires mounted up. All I did was tires....no new wheels, re-laced hubs, or new rims. Suspension is stock, as is gearing (It's a KLX250s...so stock gearing is on the high side anyway).

Cheers

Hey Pullin', what are your sprocket sizes (if you know...) Thats one thing I may change if I do it.

I just bought a 2006 KLX 250, and I'd like to put street tires on it too. What size and make of tires are you running?
