Re: XR650 Supermoto

Is that an aluminum gas tank? I have wanted a supermoto since the first time I saw a group of them hualin' it through Deals Gap.

Re: XR650 Supermoto

Wow, I'd like a few more pics of that. I'm pretty sure that I'm going with black and white on mine. The aluminum tank was probably necessary to create the right mounts to be able to connect those CRF rad shrouds. I'm not sure I have the time or money to go that far but the CRF plastics do look really good.

Re: XR650 Supermoto

Yeah, I've wanted one too since back when we did the FBO track day at JenningsGP and, I forget his name, blows by me during my fastest lap of the day and makes my 929 look slow. I heard him coming on that thumper and thought to myself, here that guy comes and he's fast but I'm having the lap of my life right now. He blows by me on the outside of turn 8 and I figure I'll catch him on the next straight, well, I never saw him again. Yeah, I liked his XR he had set up, and he could ride the hell out of it!

Re: XR650 Supermoto

Completely missed your comment about the stand in the first post. That is pretty sweet and would be VERY easy to replicate. I even happen to have an extra hydraulic jack sitting around that would be the perfect size.

Re: XR650 Supermoto

I'm looking forward to seeing how your project goes SW, make sure you keep us posted with some photos. The stand I use is the lever type and not as cool as that one.
