    Time to part with it. I built it 3-4 years ago and never put fluids in it until a week ago. I’ve ridden roughly 2-3 miles around town and drained the fuel out of it and put it back in the garage. Everything is new (2-3 miles old now). It has a FULLY street legal title that I tagged years ago and...

    hi, I've recently got a 2013 wr450 I'm converting and I had a question about my rear brake. I recently installed the Baja designs brake switch and bled the breaks. They were working fine. Then yesterday I was getting my friend to hold a lot of pressure on the brake so I could remove my front...

    Hello everyone, I've snooped around here for quite sometime, but this is my first contribution. I picked up a 2004 TE 450 last weekend with the intention of converting it into a street legal supermoto.

    Is it possible to convert a set of tubed rims to become tubeless? Could I use a glue/epoxy of some sort? Or how about a special tape? I'm sure I'll need to install some sore of valve stem. Any suggestions?

    I've been an avid dirt rider all my life but I'm new to supermotos. I'm what I'd call a good mechanic, so there's that. I own a YZ450f and I've done the entire conversion process by myself without help because I'm good with a wrench. New stator, wiring all the electrical, new rear brake master...

    I've been looking for a first bike for quite a while now and I found a pretty nice CRF230 with and enduro kit on it with a street legal title. I'm not a very big guy, so the size of this bike isn't really a problem. The only problem is that through the research I have done is that these things...

    Just tying up a 520SX supermoto conversion (540 big bore, titled/plated) and I need some help. I got the wiring harness from an EXC and have it mostly figured out. The guy I bought the bike off of was running it without a battery, and there look to be two kill switches, one at each hand grip...

    It's like an addiction you know... fixing things that aren't broken. As one of the great internet forum junkies once said, "The KTM headlight is a joke--I'd have more light from holding a candle in one hand." Or something like that. So out came the bulb and in went the HID. First things...

    After I sold my CRF, i bought myself a DRZ. But as the DRZ was finished and not so much left to do, and wintertimes. I decided to buy a cheap ass DRZ and tune it up to what it looks like now: When i bought it, it was old plastics. Everything dusty and scratched. Anodised blue standard, what a...
