  1. I have my 2001 DRZ400S I have converted to a supermoto, and now I want to start doing performance mods. I want to do the 3X3 mod, along with a jet kit, and a pipe. As of now my personal choice is going to be the Yoshi RS2 Full system, a Dynojet jet kit, and a K&N filter for the 3X3. I am posting this to see if anyone would disagree with this setup, or have any recommendations on what might be better or worth doing along the way. (I do not want to wait 4 weeks for the MRD exhaust or I would go that route) Any comments or recommendations are greatly appreciated, Going to do this in about one week. Thank you, Brad
  2. Do those who run sumo and dirt setups on the same bike swap chains and brake pads as well?
  3. Hello, after many years I am back to riding again, kinda. I just bought an xr650l with most of the supermoto conversion done. All it needed was a horn, mirror, turn signals, and a tail light. Seemed simple enough and I got it at a "your a good friend" price. The horn went on with little problems, along with the mirrors. I learned what a relay switch looked like after buying L.E.D. turn signals, but other than that, we were kosher. I installed the rear tail light, as some other tutorials show, and there was no power. I looked up the wiring diagram, and after double checking I connected the right wires, still no power. Is there a relay I need for the tail light? Even if there were a relay needed, I assumed it would still light up as a driving light without it? Electrical components are not my cup of tea.
  4. Hello! I have a Beta rr 350 enduro and i want to rebuild it to a supermoto. The problem is that i cant find any supermoto wheels for it. Do anyone know where i can find a kit wich is made for the bike? /Wille
  5. Hi all, long time stalker first time poster. Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that Highway I want to set up for 100% road. I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea Now I have my Lience it's back on. Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not show me your rigs!! I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have Cheers.
  6. I have a DRZ400sm in Atlanta, and I want to do some casual group riding. I'm newer to riding, and I'm still developing my skills, but I'm very safe and responsible. Does anyone have any knowledge of groups/good practice areas around town?
  7. Hi All, I could use some help with tire selection I have a set of 17" supermoto rims that I want to use with my 2005 KTM 450 EXC. The back rim is 4.25" and the front rim is 3.5" wide. I want to put a Kenda K270 510-17 (5.1" ) on the back and a K270 4.60-17 (4.6") on the front. Will there be issues using my 4.25" rear rim with a 5.1" wide tire? Would I be better off using the 4.6" wide tire on the front and back? Thanks in advance.
  8. *Mods please Delete this thread. I posted another one in the dirt/sumo forum Hey All, A while back a racer buddy explained to me that the best combo for tire size with lean angle in mind (for supermotos) is to have the front and rear tire as close to each other in terms of size and profile as possible for best and smoothest results in learning. I tried to find more info about it but found many contradictions. Some said 150 better, some said 140. And at that, they were talking about different tire models/mfgs and combinations. I tend to believe that the thinner rear tire gets you better/quicker/smoother lean and is also lighter weight so better response. But I'd like some more opinions or some stats if you have any. My Question: Is a setup of 120/70/17 and 140/70/17 on 4.25" rims, going to get you smoother and more stable results than a 160 or 150 rear? My current setup is Conti Attack SM's 120/140 (1.5K miles on them and loving it) Thanks for any help!

  10. Appologies for the book but bare with me here, in need of some input... Ok, so i bought a wr250f it wasnt street legal i made it legal and got plated through south dakota. I did a baja designs enduro lighting harness kit with the stator modification. Put an fmf slip on exhaust on it and jetted the carb. I forget what jets i used and i put an air fuel mixture screw in it. Problem1.After my baja kit i put on it wouldnt start. Turned out that the solenoid under the seat was loose or something i pushed down on it when it was clicking and it started running again. Problem 2.Went riding, it ran great on the trails. Went riding for a day or 2 on the street, after a while the electric start stopped working and it became a bitch to kick over. It started making the same click noise like when the battery is dead under the seat. Idk whats up with that. Then on the street i was riding and the bike stopped having power in the throttle i would pin it full throttle and it wouldnt take off like it usuallt does. I pulled over, let it sit for 5min and kicked it over again and the power i had came back in the throttle. It did that 2 more times durring the ride and i went home. Do you think this is a computer issue, a carb issue, fuel air ratio issue. Im going to do an airbox mod on it thiss weekend maybe thatll help. Problem3. I ordered some rims and stuff from warp9 so i can sumo it out and i was curious on what size sprocket would make my gears longer and better so im not maxing my rpms out at 40mph. I can do a solid 65mph on the bike but thats like pushing it and im in 5th gear as soon as i hit like 30mph, id love 6gears but im trying to avoid regearing the bike and using a smaller sprocket in the rear and maybe a tooth or 2 bigger in the front i guess, i still wanna be able to pull wheelies. I feel like im gonna blow the motor if i leave it alone and just ride street with it. Mind you this was the wr250f=for off road use only. not the wr250r=street legal from factory, i live in nj. I should have just got the street legal one or a supermoto already done but i wanted to build one and make it custom for me. I already put alot of money in to it and dont even own it 100% yet so im not trying to get rid of it anytime soon. Im not even done with it yet.
  11. DrzKC

    drz400sm

    I had a gsx-s750 and got rid of it and picked up a 2015 drz400sm this week. It's used and the last guy put knobbies on it. I'm switching back to Michelin power 2ct. stock tire size is 140/70. The current tires are 150/70. I was looking at running 160/60. Anyone know if this would be a problem? I'm just getting into the supermoto life so any other general suggestions would be great. Thanks!
  12. Hi all, first of all I'm new here and I thank you all in advance for your time and any advice you may have to offer me. heres the deal- I recently purchased a 2013 KTM duke 690. love the bike, not a thing wrong with it, BUT- originally was looking for something a little more towards the supermoto end of the spectrum and something I that could put knobbies on and go offroad every now and then. Was also looking real hard at a drz400sm but I settled on the duke because I got a good deal on it and I love the look and the ride and im about 85/15 street/dirt so it made sense for me to go with something more street oriented rather than sacrifice the power that I would need on the highway. Now im entertaining a trade offer- a 2007 bmw xmoto g650. The bmw has 9000 miles and has been well kept and maintained. My duke has 5000 miles. obviously the KTM is worth more, but it should be noted that the KTM does have a rebuilt title which affects the value- although the bike is in perfect shape. The bmw has a clean title. I'm curious to hear from anyone who has experience with both bikes what the pros and cons of each would be in your opinion. I have only been riding for less than two years, started on a yamaha 350 dual sport and have not riden much besides that and my KTM so I am still figuring out what my preferences are. I know this is a question of personal preference but I'd like to hear opinions from folks with more experience riding than I have. Factors I'm looking at are the ride and feel, performance, maintenance, reliability, and anything else you can think of. top speed is not an issue, 105 on the BMW is more than enough for me. as far as look goes, I honestly prefer the look of the bmw (don't hang me for saying that, orange just isn't my color) I'm supposed to go check out the BMW tomorrow. attatched a pic of the actual bike im thinking of trading for. Thanks in advance to anyone whos got an opinion/advice for me.
  13. I am 17 and I bought myself a bmw g650 xmoto. Don't get me wrong its a awesome bike but its a BMW. The parts for this bike are crazy expensive. As far as I know they only made them for like 3 years and then they stopped production due to not enough sales. What are your opinions on this bike? Anyone know where I could find the cheapest parts? I am thinking about just trading it for a simple DRZ or something because I'm pretty sure the transmission is going to go out on me one of these days. Here's a picture of my bike, looks good in the pictures.... Thanks for your feedback guys.

  15. Hey guy’s, new to the forum here. I had a 2019 Yamaha MT-09, traded for a 2019 KTM 500 exc to get into the enduro/supermoto world. I’m very happy with the bike, but more is always better! I punched out the exhaust end cap, and went with a piggyback fuel tuner to address the lean fuel issues. I saw that some guys with older 530’s were cutting the internal pipe off the end-cap, spark arrestor I’m assuming? I’m not worried about forestry legal mumbo jumbo, mostly ridden in supermoto form on the street with the occasional trail riding on private land. Has anyone else done this? Does it make it more like the 450sx end cap by doing so? Or was that just a thing for the older ktm models? Also, does anyone have the recommended tuner settings from JD? A picture of the programming paper for 2019 ktm 500 would be a huge help! Thanks guys
  16. I have a lightly used set of stock 2015 gold drz400sm wheels that I'm not using. They're listed in classifieds, but not sure what the going rate is for factory supermoto wheels these days. Any thoughts on what I should ask? And is anyone interested?
  17. Hello everyone! 👍 I would like some help regarding which Supermoto-style front fenders fits a 2017 KTM 500 EXC-F Six Days. There's 2 screw holes in the back off my current off-road fender that mounts in the back of the lower clamp. A friend suggested a 690 SMC-R or Husky FS300-570 but I'm not sure since I've only seen pictures. (OEM partnumber: 7730821000028)
  18. Hello TT peeps. I currently have an 11' Ktm 450 exc which i am converting to sumo. Still on the fence about getting cush drive rims or standard rims. Not too much info on what cush drive does for wheelies. I know its smoother on the tranny and chain but will it make much of a difference with slower wheelies/stunting? I had a DRZ with standard rims and slower wheelies were very choppy and almost impossible to control smoothly. Any advice/tips/help will be much appreciated. Also.... will 5" rims be pushing it for chain rub? Should i just stick with 4.25"?
  19. I’m sure there are questions about this already, but I am in a hurry to buy a set of Warp 9 supermoto rims for my 2009 Wr250F. However, the rims came off of a 2009 Yz450F and I’m not sure if the hubs will fit on my Wr. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  20. Background About 1 year and 7.5k miles ago, I bought new tires for my DRZ SM: Pilot Power on the front, Pilot Street on the back. Would have put Pilot Street on both, but they were out of the front so they gave me a PP. The front tire is doing great, but the rear tire is fairly square although there's plenty of tread on the sides. There's also some cracking showing inside the treads. So I've decided to replace it. Riding Style 70% highway, 15% city, 15% offroad (fire-roads, gravel, mild singletrack, some mud) Options I would love a dual sport tire, but due to regulations where I live I must have tires the exact size listed on the vehicle registration, which for SM is 140/70/17 on the rear. That severely limits my options. I was quoted the Michelin Pilot Street and Pirelli Diablo Rosso II at around the same price. In theory the Rosso is a "better" tire, so it's a "better" deal, but given my riding patterns and the fact that I squared off my last tire I'm not sure it would actually be better for me. What would you do? Would love to get some opinions.
  21. My 2008 wr250x has recently been struggling a bit!!! ?There is some odd sort of throttle lag/bog which seems to be regularly prevalent when i put the bike into gear and apply throttle(or blip throttle) or when i am rev-matching/downshifting. I have also noticed at times (quite randomly) if i am accelerating on the harder side the bike struggles and acts like it is going to cut out/looses power. When i realease the throttle it is fine again. My mods are as followed; fmf q4, fmf megabomb header, fmf programmer, airbox flap glued closed. I have played a lot with my fmf programmer settings and have still had no luck. I have also tried adjusting the clutch cable (for whatever reason) and that has also had no effect. Almost 2000 miles ago i took apart the whole motor replacing the gaskets, piston rings, etc. I have not yet tried unplugging the fmf programmer or done a compression test, but those are two things i would like to try. I have also considered the clutch needing to be replaced, but i don’t see how that problem would affect the throttle lag/bog. Any advice is greatly appreciated!! jay #SOS
  22. Hi all, im looking to make my 2018 WR450F a motard. There are a set of motard rims/Tyres for sale coming off an 03 WR450F. It looks like they are the Honda CBR rims that have been adapted to the 03 WRF. If if I buy the rims including the brackets/rear axle etc will it all match up on the 18? I can’t find information to see if there will be problems... What issues may may there be between years?
  23. Hi Guys, I just spend hours googling on what is going on but cant find anything on this topic (possibly because I dont know the correct terms) When I am looking at the front of the bike(2016 ktm 690 enduro with warp9 wheels) I can see that the front wheel is closer to the right fork arm then the left and is rubbing on a plastic piece(Im sure I can remove the plastic) I see the bolt to the right has a stopper and wont go any further(if it went further it would be more centered) Any idea on what I can/should do with this. Thanks
  24. Hey I have a 05 DRZ 400S that I've been having some issues with and I'm not that great of a electrical person. I'm experiencing some weird issues. About 8 months ago I noticed my battery was draining and had to charge battery to be able to ride if I let the bike sit for more than a week or so ended up replacing regulator/rectifier which seemed to solve the issue. Then a few months later a similar problem arose and seemed to start getting worse over time now the bike started to cut out while accelerating hard then stop running all together. I replaced the stator with one from Ricky's which seemed to solve the problem. Now the problem seems to be back the bike starts and runs fine can even pop start it but the battery is still draining quickly I had a multimeter on it and volts were dropping drastically while running. I was thinking maybe CDI box it's the only thing I haven't replaced yet? Any advice would be great thanks.
