so it seems.
I cannot stop shopping for bikes online. I'm out of control.
Over the past 2 days I've looked at a '03 CRF450R supermoto conversion (made an offer). A '05 KTM 525SMR supermoto (made an offer). a '03 KLX400 as a do it all and a 1994 KLX650. a CR500 conversion to supermoto (holy cow, talk about unrideable). and a XR650 SM conversion.
I should not have gone to hang out at the track over the weekend, I'm itching to get a SM and get back to mixing it up.
Hello - My name is _Jetblast, etc ._________ and I have a bike problem --
Hello Jetblast - welcome and your now stronger for admiting your problem -
Ive been toying around with the idea of taking 3 or 4 bikes ,selling them and getting somthing newer.Only problem is Im not sure of what i want and what i would have to get rid of to get it -- I thought about selling the uzzi, but, then i rode it for a couple of days and now I dont want to part with it . Same for the GPZ 750 and the ZX7R --- Help !
It's black with a polished frame and very built motor.
that'd be it! yes that motor is wicked strong, think it was 62-63hp... i do also know that he had the bottom end rebuilt at Gainesville Motorsports north of Atlanta (his uncle owns the shop). bike was in good shape, some minor things i knew of, like no kill switch when he traded it. i also know what kind of money changed hands if that at all affects your decision. i can get a LOT more details if you would like.
maybe. I'm leaning more toward the KTM because it's built to do SM from the factory and factory support is very strong. Wicked-up motors aren't exactly designed for long life and reliability. I offered him $3k for the CRF, the responded that $3400 was the lowest he'd go.
not bad money, my buddy had $4k (before repairs) in it and traded it plus 800 for the RR. i would agree that motor is a ticking grenade as built as it is. but **** it's FAST! the guy he bought it from originally was well known on smjunkie as having one of the fastest 450s they've seen
