Yes, JDRocks hit the nail on the head. I don't particularly enjoy fabrication, I enjoy riding. If I had a second bike I'd give this a shot, as I wouldn't be pressed to complete the job quickly. What I was hoping for was a specific list of "you need this," as I could gather everything before I started tearing down the bike and I'm completely capable of putting all the bits together. I tried contacting Tony as he's done this exact build, but never heard back. So, I started this thread to see if I could get a detailed and complete shopping list together. Thanks folks for your help! Really, been most useful, saved me from digging a hole I [possibly] wouldn't be able to get out of.

if an aspiring builder doesn't enjoy wanging things together, working through the process of design and fabrication, trouble shooting the inevitable issues that arise with a custom bike, then it's better to stay on the sidelines.


if it's not fun, it's not worth the effort.
It's not rocket science although some seen to think it is. If you never try you will never learn.

Yes, I agree, which is why I would continue if the Ninja was a second bike.

Well.... i know you want to do this build or you wouldn't have started a thead.Don't you have some down time from riding seeing how you live in denver?
You don't need all the parts to start this build. Start with the forks. Swap them then work on the axle then spacers and ect.
Doesn't matter to me either way just trying to give
it you a little push. Haha
RIDE ON and be safe.

I know you've already decided to not do it Smash, but just FYI, from when I had a KLR, i remember it was very common to lace up a 19 rim to the stock KLR hubs. Never saw anyone on the KLR boards with a cast rim.

2fast - ride year round here. Can't get up in the mountains, but the snow doesn't stick long down here. Loads of fun sort farm roads east of town.
