    Welcome to the forum. Start by cutting a couple feet off of the rear fender.

    29HP is stout, is it a 351 ?

    Haha yea i plan on it man, i do live in Wyoming.. So i will need "some" protection.. Planning on mounting the plate really low behind the tire and an r6 taillight of sorts, with just the fender no extension..

    The kid i bought it from races supermoto and had his mechanic go through it... Its a base 250 with some jetting and carb work apparently.. I have the dyno sheet and it all checks out at 21HP.**** my bad.. not 29.

    Default New Mirror Modification

    Before I put my new handlebars on I had a side mirror mount, but now that I have the new bars, I was looking for a new way to mount my old side mirror.

    I had seen a few SM's with the mirror hanging down below the handlebars and really liked that look, but the mirrors cost between $50-70...and I am cheap so I decided to make my own.

    Here is everything I used- conduit hangers with a speed thread (at Home Depot for $2) and my old side mount mirror.


    I just placed the mirror in mounting hole of the conduit and tightened the bold with a nut.


    Then I put the mirror on my handlebars and tightened the speed thread to secure them.



    Here is a picture of the final product. I tested it out on the road and had little to no vibration (even at 65-70mph). If you have an old side mirror this is a very cheap ($2) way to get a pretty cool modification.

    DKeefe, pretty thrifty set-up on the mirrors. Looks good

    Mike, I don't feel as odd seeing somebody else went with Orange. Looks good If nothing else when Halloween rolls around were all set.

    Orange happens to be my color of choice. My fiddy is also black and orange my zx7r is orange and my 06' zx10r (stolen) was orange. My 07' replacement is blue and orange, as well as two cars i owned in the past were orange. A couple of friends use to call me the orange power ranger. Its funny i don't own a KTM. I say it all the time OrAnGe RoCkS!!!

    I believe that's a Kawasaki D-Tracker, as opposed to our KLX250SF.

    Also you can get the green from a 2009KLX250S dual sport. Kaw plastics are an arm and a leg though.

    Actually, this is KLX250S 2008. And i converted to supermoto about 2years ago.

    i already repainted this bike. Frame, front shock, rear spring etc.

    in Indonesia, it's so easy to get a plastic kit for KLX250, but we have to wait about 2weeks.

    Look up 2009 KLX250S in Green. Keep in mind though the S and SF had a different shape on the front fender.

    So the link to these plastics would fit my 09klxsf? Your talk of the front fender confused me.

    Yes all the plastics will fit your bike.

    The front fender from the S is like a Motorcross fender.


    The front fender from our SF is shorter.

    Thanks man, it was the only one within a 6hr radius for sale 2 weeks ago.. Now there are 4 more available different model, color, higher miles, no sumo tires and no mods.. ALL of which have a $4000 price tag so im still feeling good on the purchase, where in Ohio are you from?? Im originally from Marblehead "little lake town" outside of sandusky..

    BUT i did just find this> http://wyoming.craigslist.org/mcy/2928248182.html .. If interested could probably work something out for delivery in May when im going back to Ohio to visit the family..

    Nice price but I'd rather find a SM. Too much money to convert it to a supermoto.

    Im just being patient right now. Weather is still a lil iffy here and Im selling my pitbike in my avatar and in the process of looking for a better paying job. Then maybe sell the truck to get a bike and a beater for crappy days.

    Im just east of Cleveland in Euclid.

    Didnt even know there were any around here. I have yet to see any on the roads. Looks like a fun group to ride with.

    My tires are a 140/80 and the front is a 120/90 i believe. If you dont ride too terribly hard, these tires are ok. For me, they are not as good on the street as i needed them to be. Im going to go tubeles most likely. But they are decent if you don't ride like a jackass









    I think i am going to keep this color scheme, and get all my plastics plastadipped so its like this but carbon fiber. Hopefully in the next few months...gotta go on vacation in two weeks.

    How much power have you lost with those over sized tires?? Enough to tell? I also considered plastic dipping.. But i will probably go with a custom wrap and powdercoating my wheels unless i buy aftermarkets..

    Had my bike vandalized last week.... somebody slashed the seat with a razor blade and poored acetone on the plastics... guess I'll be ordering that redbull sticker kit sooner than I thought I'd be...

    got my seat re-upholstered, looks even better than the stockie, adjusted my valves this week-end, they were a bit tight..., changed the spark plug, oil changed, filter changed, leveled out brake fluid, new coolant, ready for the new season


    fuck vandals, if I ever catch somebody doing something to my bike, they'll be eating through a straw for the rest of their lives.

    Pushing luck, thanks for the reply I have been thinking about a set of Distanzia's maybe that is the route I am going to have to go. I have some Shinko's now, but I am really looking for a tire the inspires confidence on the st. that also allows some traction on fire rds.

    Dont get me wrong, these are an ok tire for the money. But hands down, distenza is a better choice if you lean more than you off road. i have found an in the middle tire isnt suitable for me. i either have to have street or knobs. I do love my shinki 744 off road, it is rather nice.


    duuude thats not good at all. Dont keep her inside!? if iever caight someone messing with mine i would shoot them, gotta love tx laws. i work way too hard to have my shit messed with like that, as do most of you i am sure.

    Also, i got my ebay china levers in today and got them installed. fit like a glove, tight with my moose handguards tho. Def worth the pennies! Also my chain blew up a mile a way from home on my lunch break. best break ever, didnt even get to eat! 3700 miles on the stock chain tho? eh ill take it.

    keep my bike inside at all time but I was at my gf's place for the night, I park the bike behind the building and you gotta know it's there to even see it. I am now suspecting the neighboor or something since I go there once in the week and I have to leave at 6am, maybe I pissed some neighboor coz the bike is loud in the am... anyway, f***king bullsh**T, don't think it's an ex

    and yes, was pretty pissed, coz I work hard for my stuff, and being a student, I don't have that much extra money to spend repairing shit.

    I had distanzias on the front and back, 120-130 and absolutely loved them... I am riding the avon roadrider right now on the back, 140, and I am not liking it as much... slipperier for some reason?

    Dunno if anyone remembers me saying something about my bike seeping oil, but today it finally dripped. i put maybe 100 miles TOPS since i had washed it. looks like valve cover gasket and the head gasket...just kinda puddles up on the motor and eventually dripped down and off the bottom. i hope my extended warranty does me good. if not, im raising hell and getting the 351. im gonna put up some pics tomorrow when i have a chance.

    Welcome to the forum! Nice bike, good price for stupid low miles! Look around and you will find plenty of inspiration on what to do with that rear whale tail.. that was my first most thing done..

    Nice WRXWAGON. I found one for $2900. Just gotta get the funds together to go pick it up.

    How are y'all mounting the skate wheels to the axle?

    Be careful. I don't know how the laws are where you're at, but in tx, the blinkers have to be 6" apart. Integrated doesnt do that and gets you pulled over here. My bikes don't need them, as they aren't required. Stupid laws I know. But just a heads up

    Is that bike for $2900 in Ohio by chance? I just used threaded rod and 54mm skate board wheels. I found a thread on here about it.

    Here's the 351 I purchased from the original owner two weeks ago. The dealership the bike was originally sold at (Skagit Powersports) in northern Washington put the 351 kit, full exhaust and pumper carb on it along with the "SP" stickers.

    ive seen that 351 online before...how do you like it? im still pulling my hair out trying to debate on pulling the plug and buying it. the 250 does not have enough power and 4k miles later im paying for it :(

    TX has motorcycle laws!??? i guess here in houston all you need is insurance and a liscense and they let you go if you stop! I passed 2 state troopers and two sherriffs yesterday on fm1960 doing about 70. they didnt give me a second look. i think motards may be the exceptions...ive gotten pulled over a few times for doing wheelies, they never ever ever bother looking my bike over. they just chew me, ask if i wanna see my next birthday and let me go..
