You can go from the 15,16,17,and down to the 14 all with the factory 520 cm chain as well, only moving the wheel forward and back... For the 16 and 17 you should dremel or remove the front sprocket cover. (see watt-man's site) Not disagreeing with you at all and what you run or like... It just seems like switching the front sprocket looks a lot easier than the rear. 1 cover, 1 nut, you don't even have to remove the rear wheel to change it, just move it up to slack the chain, change the front sprocket, get the chain back on the sprockets and then slide the wheel back to tension it back up.

I have read that adding or taking away 1 tooth in the front is like doing 2.8 in the back so you can figure what going up to a 17 or down to a 14 would be like.... 16 front would be like a 39.2 rear 17 front would be like a 36.4 rear 14 front would be like a 44.8 rear I think I vaguely remember that someone ran a 12 in the front even.

CBR250R/CBR300R wheels on CRF250L/M - CRF250 L/M

And since I wrecked the bike last Saturday and have a bruised shoulder, I'll use recovery time to do this write up review.To be all honest, the CBR250R wheel supermoto trim is all I ride in now (although, my 21/18 setup will go back on in May for a week of trail running in the Smokeys). So I think my constant running of the supermoto trim will give an accurate assumption of the feel of this setup.First off if you're vertically challenged and you ride majority street, supermoto is a nice setup because it make the bike sit lower. At 32" inseam I flat foot with bent knees. I left my factory side stand on so it doesn't offer quite the lean of the factory setup, but it still has a bit of lean. Custom Yamaha XT600.

Tires are a mysterious thing. Front 18" Fatty Dune Tire Set-Up - Dirt Bike Pictures & Video. Motorcycle Brake Pads: How to Choose the Right ones. We all love to twist the throttle and cruise down the road on our motorcycles, but being able to stop it is pretty crucial. Properly functioning brake pads are critical for safe operation of a motorcycle and its important for motorcyclists to make sure that their entire braking system is in top working order before every ride. I find that riders put off replacing their motorcycle brake pads, mainly because they don’t know what kind to get.

Once you understand the different types of pads, you can decide on the ones that will perform the best on your bike. The most common types of brake pads used on motorcycles are sintered, organic and semi-sintered. Knowing about each type makes it easier for a motorcyclist to find the right kind when its time to replace their own. 2-day Ride to Idaho's Lost River and Lemhi Ranges - ChinaRiders Forums.

With Harley-Davidson recently unveiling two new models, the Street 750 and Street 500, we were wondering who would be the first to customise one.

Well, we don’t have to wonder anymore. The guys from The Speed Merchant were approached by Mike Davis from Born Free on behalf of Harley to see if they were interested in customising one to be showcased at the Born Free show. Of course they said hell yeah. “Having never seen one in person, it was very intriguing” says Brandon from The Speed Merchant.

GP's Classic Steel #48 - '86 Honda “FatCat” For this week’s Classic Steel we are going to look back at one of the forerunners of the modern four-stroke revolution, the 1986 Honda TR200R “FatCat”. In 1986, the AMA threw the sport of motocross a major curve ball with the introduction of the “production rule”.

The regulation placed major limitations on the modifications that could be done to race bikes and dictated that all racers be based on off-the-shelf production machines. This meant an end to Honda’s super-exotic and super-expensive HRC race bikes. Now the big team’s race bikes would have to start out just like Joe Average’s scooter, instead of some skunk works special. Honda XR200R, XR250R, XR350R, XR500R, XR600R, XR650R Bike ID.
