Well I've been on the fence about tarding this bike. I know I'll never get my money back out of it. But, If I ride the piss out of for a few years, then who cares. It's mechanically sound and street titled. I've also thought about selling it now, and snagging up an SMC 625.

I can get Excel 17's with green rad hubs, BT 016's mounted and balanced and a JT rear sprocket for $1,195 to my door. Cush hub is an extra $200. SM front fender, MX rear fender with a custom mount led brake light/plate relocator and I'm golden.

Is the cush worth it if I go this route? Maybe send the suspension to FBI for that money.

I have converted a couple KLX650s and on the dirt model we just buy an old KLR rear hub to use when building the wheel. The C model comes with cush so thats easier. But it may be fine without cush, its just that I never tried it.

Thanks guys. Now I'm still waiting on confirmation that I can get these wheels for my bike. KLX650R and KLX300R use the same hubs. The advertised wheels are for KLX300R, so they should work fine. But Rad mfg. is not so sure:headscrat

yeah the KLX300 stuff will bolt right up. Even my KDX200 has same hubs and I swap supermoto wheels onto that sometimes. Sometimes the rotor mountings are a little different, seems the older stuff is smaller and some have countersunk bots others with shouldered edge. But since you are getting rotors as well on new hubs it will be easy.
