Saturday I will be buying my first supermoto. It is a 09 klx250sf with only 1400 miles on it. It is completely stock and over time I would love to add some mods to it. Any suggestions tips ect?? Im new to the supermoto world and I have a dirt bike background but my street bike knowledge as of right now stops as a passenger. Im taking a safety course and am looking for some information about this new world Im about to step into. :) My dad is a mechanic and is going to show me the ropes of taking care of her but Ill still be on the threads getting other feedback and maybe one day can give feedback to some newbie, but as of right now Im that newbie :p

Protaper cr mid bend bars. Custom made tail rack. currently sporting a fmf powercore4 and power bomb header.
as for led lighting idk it wouldnt be hard to add it but i wouldnt care for it. If u decide u want the exhaust i will make a kickass deal lol. Also the seat strap unbolts if u take the seat off. If u need any help or info with the bike pm me. When you go to jet it dont remove the air box lid just the snorkle.also PUT A 120 TIRE ON THE FRONT AND A 140 ON THE REAR!! makes a. Huge difference over those stock midget tires. Plus easier to find those sizes

Oh nice! thanks!! I was looking into the handle bar LED ones but I think it would be significantly harder for cars to notice them there. Ill let you know about the exhaust haha, I have to get the bike first! If I put those tires on it does it affect the seat height much? Im not super short (around 5'8 or 5'9) but dont wanna have to stand tip toe
I also lovee the rim stripes with the stop and go pattern. And of course the scary lizard haha

Lol the lizard is flippin people off.
I do not run turn signals on any bikes they dont get noticed lol. If u are 5'8 you will have 0 issues. My with is 5'2 and rides that thing without issues. She stops on inclines and everything. The bike really feels like a mini. We had to change the bars to full size because it comes with minis on there. They reall make it want to turn it too quick and on high speed corners it felt scary lol. Swapped it over to big boy bars and ta da....handles like a bike should. That along with the tires really improved the bikes ability. The exhaust and jetting made a REMARKABLE difference as well. Hell just the slip on was an improvement like you wouldnt believe. The bike likes to be run a gear low and wont build power till 7k rpms so she hovers it at 6-8k when cruising and can climb it to 10.5k. Great lil bike. She has 11k miles on it and has wrecked it once at around 30 & once she hit a dog at 60+. Beat the front rotor flat and its still rideable lol.

That bike can rip down fire trails. My wife isnt a dirt rider at all and she can run the piss out of on the trails. It just feels planted cuz its so stocky.
