That's the question. The end goal is a fun supermoto that can be a garage queen and occasional corner carver. Something that would hold its value would be nice. Bigger might be better but also might be more prone to breaking in this case. There's also the issue of getting them street legal but not much is required around here and I think I could do the Vermont thing for a title. These are two somewhat local options that both seem to be in decent shape. I've looked through a lot of listings within a few hundred miles and these are the two I'm considering right now. The IT is set up like a YZ right now with a 510cc bore, but the seller says it comes with all the IT stuff, including a stock bore cylinder, head and carb. It has these weird brackets running along the swingarm that I don't understand but looks to be an alright machine. No cush hub and there were crankcase/kicker shaft issues that could be remedied with later parts. The KDX is decades newer (2006) and also in good shape, I'm told. I'd imagine there's still no cush hub on a KDX but the power output and strength of the internals probably makes that apples to oranges. I'm not as familiar with these bikes so I'm unsure of weaknesses. The bikes are priced the same. I feel as though either bike would resell okay but the IT might do better. One is much newer, but its engine is also about 40% the size of the other. Both bikes should be capable of taking a USD fork front end as well but I don't think I've seen it done on the old Yamahas like that. Whether or not I would attempt a USD fork swap would depend on a few things anyhow. 17" wheels and spokes and such should set me back about the same with either bike. What would y'all do?
