    Hi Guys, I just finished converting my 2017 Husqvarna FX450 to a street legal supermoto. My background is mostly motocross/enduro riding and some snowbiking. Im looking for some advice on how to setup my suspension for some aggressive street riding and possibly some track days. What should I...

    Hi guys, I want to be able to clutch up wheelies at higher speeds but I'm having a bit of trouble. I see all of these boys online clutching up at what seems like 50 mph or sometimes more. I'm not the best at wheelies, and my bike is geared down like mad, but I still can't seem to get it up...

    What gearing would you suggest for this bike? I have 110/70/17 front and 140/70/17 on rear. I'm thinking about doing 14/43. I simply want to be able to cruise comfortably at 40mph but still have enough torque to do wheelies. I know, I know, having a 125cc two stroke SM is taboo. But I did...

    Hey guys, I just put a 15 tooth front and a 44 tooth rear sprocket on my 09 wr450f, and my chain's running a bit long. Does anyone know what the proper chain length is for 15/44 gearing on the wr450f? Thanks in advance!

    Hello, I am currently in the process of converting my 2002 wr250f into a supermoto. I just recently got the title converted to MC and now she is plated. Super fun to ride on the streets but I have a few questions. The suspension is very SOFT and I don't know if I should just stiffen the...

    Hi, just road registered my 2003 '04 model yz450, tried it out on the road at the weekend, great on country lanes, however it seems to top out at about 70max (going by a speedometer app on my phone), and it certainly feels about that speed too. It is the 4 speed box, i know 5 would be better...

    Just about to pick up either 14 300xc or xcw. I've read many threads, mostly on dirt comparison. Going to convert to sumo and ride mostly in city. 1. I believe the everyone agrees xc stiffer suspension superior for road use? 2. Semi-close ratio xc trans superior for mostly city riding and...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this so I'm not sure whether I'm in the right department so bare with me. I have recently bought a ktm exc 200 1999 model, why a 200? Because I wanted one. I'm going to be riding it on the road but it has off road / green lane gearing (13/50), I've heard enduro riders...
