    Yeah, fuel range must be impressive, and having the rear disk brake larger than the front is radical :D

    I guess more of a scrambler than dual sport?

    I guess this fits in here. Not as "off road" as some of the bikes in the thread, but has plenty of power and works well for the few gravel and dirt roads you can find around here:

    1991 EX500
    1.5" lift in the rear/.75" front
    LSL/Spiegler handlebar conversion
    Acewell gauge
    Engine guards
    Duro 904 on the rear
    Kenda K761 on front
    Glasspacks with dB killers

    Shorter dogbones from an guy at the EX-500.com forums and dropping the forks in the trees. Stock, they were about 1/2" above the top clamp and now they're 1/4" down from flush. They've been like that for almost 8 years now and have worked well.

    Unfortunately, the lift from the dogbones is short enough to use the center stand to park, but too high to rotate the rear wheel to lube the chain.

    Lay a piece of plywood under your centerstand when you need a little more lift. Mine is the same way

    Yeah, when I need to lube it I usually just park it where the garage slab meets the driveway and the 1/2" difference works. Easy work around.

    Thats cool! I like how you ditched the side covers and how it has that "the bike looks like me" look

    Did you make the skid plate?

    I bet those tires were a bitch to get on there!

    The plastics were all busted when I got it. Yes, I made the skid. The tires weren't any problem, I just had to re-locate the fender. It's a 120/90 on the front and 140/80 rear.

    What rear are you running? I have all the parts for a 17" conversion and trying to figure out tires.
