TE610 vs SM610 for an all arounder

I am looking for a bike which can do dual sport duty, as well as supermoto duty. Would I be better off to get a TE610 and buy some 17 inchers for it, or buy a SM610 and get a set of dirt wheels? Any differences other than the funky front fender?

Thanks a bunch

Simon

Front forks on the SM are shorter and brakes diff etc. This has been discussed in other threads. Best thing to do is get both bikes. :p

Several people here have done it. Rajobigguy for one. He and others think the correct way to go is starting with the TE 610 and buying the parts to convert it to SM. He said it's a pretty quick change once you have it set up.

One rider just put 17 in. dirt tires on her SM610 and rode it in Baja recently. Certainly would be cool on the connector roads.

Wow, who makes 17 inch dirt tires?

I wonder what size tires she was using and if she removed the front fender?
