I know it has small oil capacity, so would buying a extended clutch...

    Another "What bike should I get" thread from a former SMC owner (sorry about that) Hi guys! I have been very inactive in the supermoto scene (and in here) for quite some time now. Mostly because I am now living back in Denmark and had my SMC stolen a few years ago (a new one in Denmark is...

    Hello all, my 400sm is stalling whenever i pull the clutch to coast, but only at above around 40 mph in 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear.

  5. What I Want In A Supermoto

    Street Tarders
    I've only got 25,000 miles on my Yamaha WR250X, but I want to get a head start on figuring out what to replace it with. I'd totally do another 250X, but Yamaha is no longer exporting to the US. My bike is a daily driver and the fact that I can go 26K miles between valve checks and do oil changes...

    Hello everyone! I just bought a DR-Z400SM, and I love it. I've been riding sport bikes and cruisers before, and now it was time to try something a little bit lighter. My only regret is that it took so long for me to discover the most fun type of motorcycles out there. I will be using my bike...
  10. How Difficult Is Maintenance?

    Street Tarders
    So I'm in the market for a new supermoto. It will be my first street bike ever and I've never done maintenance on bikes and have zero mechanical experience. I'm not an idiot though either :thumbup: If I got a carbed bike, how hard would it be to learn to clean and adjust the carb? I am...

    I have 08 Husky SM 610 that has a rough start in the cold. The bike has 3600 miles on it, with a new battery and air filter. The next things I can think of would be fuel filters and spark plug.
