I just started with the sumo conversion, so there is not much I can show right now. The most important thing for me was to figure out, if I can get a decent driveability with the small 17‘‘ front wheel.

My NX250M (m= motard) will also be kinda old-fashioned – since I like the look of my Nixie I won’t change much except the wheels. An AX1 aluminum swing arm with rear disc brake was on my wish list, though – since I finally got a complete AX1, no sweat.

The wheel on the pic is from a NSR125 with 130/70 17 tire – Heidenau /Continental make some nice “Sumo” tires in this size. Note that my Brit – AX1 came with a Supertrapp exhaust.

If you could get a swing arm and rear brake of an European NX650 you could try this

I already eschewed the original head lamp / odometer long ago for my “enduro” conversion and mounted parts from a KLX. Now just imagine smaller wheels and “sumo” fenders and there you go
