What do you get when you cross a cali plated 2000 300exc and a 2005 450smr?



Answer: plated smokey 300smr, aka: city hooning!

...and track hooning too.

I already had the plated 300exc and just picked up the smr today.

From what I've found out, the later swingarm isn't compatible, but the shock and frontend and wheels are.

Looking to sell the dirt convert 450smr after I swap the wheels and suspension. ----It has a hinson slipper clutch, upgraded (i.e. not titanium on brass) topend and the whole bike is low-hour and very clean. I would keep it, but need the money to buy leathers and beef jerky, and the bike with the plate stays. Anybody interested?----

I have race slicks on the sumo now, but looking to get some dot tires.

Anybody have any words of wisdom for me?

I'll keep this thread updated as I go.

:)

I may be interested in buying that smr. I could convert my exc back to dirt and smr back to supermoto. Pm me price.

Well, I swapped the wheels and suspension over, with no real issues, except that I had to grind off a small amount of material from the lower shock mount on the swingarm to fit the smr shock with its shorter clevis. Also, getting the smr rear wheel in the 2000 swingarm was a real effing ordeal. I had to basically dismantle the rear brake caliper and then assemble it after the wheel was mounted. FML.

Here is the 450SMR, with the exc suspension, for sale now: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/mcy/4095590293.html
watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LptPJPYZ3V4 (obviously, if I had the money to, I would keep it, but one of them has to go and its not going to be the street legal three hundred.

More on that later....

I'm happy with my black plastics for now- it's a bit boring, but that's what I want. I want to be able to hoon around without being so easily discernible as a 2 stroke dirtbike. I have a black tank that I'll be putting on tomorrow.

I'd be more interested in updating the 2000 gearbox to a 6 speed.

@06smcya - Yes, okay... Am I not allowed to sell something I bought? Isn't selling something for more than what you paid for it a capitalist/american prerogative? Anyway, the ad does say OBO, if you're interested, I'm happy to negotiate on the price. C

Here she is. Wired up a headlight, brake, tail, and horn from spare components and took her hooning around the west side last night! It was super duper fun! Half of the time my front wheel wasn't on the ground. It's incredible how light she feels. I'm running the #7 slide and CEK needle at the moment.

Now all I need to do is sell the 450!
