    XR650L for supermoto?

    The XR has great power. I haven't got any experience of the drz but haven't heard too many issues other than being a bit under powered. Sucks that you can't convert a bike over there. I guess I've found one good thing about the UK; we can pretty much register what we like.

    XR650L for supermoto?

    Hi, I had an XR650R converted to supermoto for a few years and it was great! Mine had some work done to it including edlebrock carb so I can't say what one in standard tune would be like but based on mine you can't go wrong. I seem to remember there was a common clutch bush issue which you need to sort before it breaks but other than that, no complaints from me.

    Supermoto. Can be a bitch to start (because I'm old now!)

    Fast and fairly comfortable. More stable and less twitchy than newer superbikes.

    Age old question!

    Hi everyone, I'm coming back to supermotos after a break and was after some advice. It's the old 'which bike' question I'm afraid! Based on previous bikes I have some requirements but I think I'll have to compromise somewhere so all feedback appreciated. I'm after: 1. Something with some legs as it'll be mainly used on the road so I don't want it to struggle at 60mph. 2. Electric start (I'm too old for all that kicking (XR650R) and not being able to start when it's hot (YZ426F) 3. Light. Some of the 'road SM' bikes used to feel a bit cumbersome to me. I'll do the odd track day. 4. Reasonable service intervals. I don't really want to have to service it every time I pop to the shops. I guess an oil change every few weeks wouldn't kill me if it was easy enough to do. I guess I'm looking at something like a converted WR450 (but see 4), KTM SMC (but see 3?) or maybe a Husky 701 (??) Any advice/comments/abuse would be greatly appreciated.
