Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
I will also be selling off the stock front end,wheels, bodywork,tank,speedo- just about everything but the frame and motor. If anyone has interest you can call me at 314-277-8744. I will be listing those in the classifieds soon.
Oh, I have a feeling that this is going to be a lot of fun. Sycklemotor, please document your build along the way with pictures. BTW: What is "my way" when it comes to a build?

Another set of stock wheels with 90/10 tires is the cheapest way to go.
Any conversion will require some amount of costly machine work and material to make spacers and such.
If you want to buy a set of SM wheels, new and ready to install, you are looking at about $1100. That includes 320MM disc, caliper bracket, and tires. Complete sets are available. You can whittle that number down to about $700 by finding a set of hubs and having them laced to new rims or lace your self and knock off another $200 or so. A used set of SM wheels for the XRL sell in the $700 range.

It's Alive

Hey, wanted to give props to Brian (Techforlife) for the awesome CDI repair service.

Normally I like to do all my own repairs, and he even tells you how he does it (with pictures), but while I can solder etc., this task was a bit over my head due to too many solder joints (points of failure).

Brian turned it around in a couple days and the whole process was ridiculously cheap. Please, overpay him.

Really, you can judge the quality from the outside. Even the surgical scars are barely perceptible.

Well sir, dirt roads to the NE and NW of houston are a fav. The Sam Houston Forest has many miles of single track trails. There are three MX tracks in the Houston area and they all have trails. The group I ride with just got back from the Big Bend and that is a stellar place to ride. i missed that due to a health issue. The endless trails of Colorado are a once a year event usually around late Sept. New Mex. around Silverton is looking like a place to go as well. I am wierd, no shocket there aye, and like to ride on the beach. Plenty of that here. How bout yall?

Hopefully one of the fine gentlemen here will post up what you need...You might want to make sure your wires and connectors are securely attached (the ground under the seat and the negative from the battery to the engine (next to the starter) are a couple important ones)

FWIW, I would go with Guinness instead of tea, after all, Guinness is good for you!

I can vouch for everything he said about the ground wires (just go tighten them), then check the wires/switches (key/run). Stupid things are most likely the culprit - well from my experience.

Thanks, I like the idea of the SM wheels so I can get some wider tires on there for dipping into the corners. How hard is it to spoke a wheel?
If I wanted to go supermoto wheels what would I be looking for as far as size to fit the axle and everything

I drove to the Houston area (Katy) to visit a good friend, ride the back roads and pick up an RZ. While Texas is flatter than Paris Hilton, the back roads were a blast to terrorize. I can imagine the dirt trails back there are just as rewarding.


You can drive towards San Antonio and scoop up the "Hill Country." I drove through and kick myself for not unloading my Ape here. Outside the world famous AF1 in New Braunfels (Hill Country).
