Latest project completed

I recently took my CRF 150F that I had previously done a 230 conversion on and converted the 230 dirt configuration to a supermoto.

In 150 off road form...

Berg Tard

Use the wheel set on both my Berg and Kato.
Got proper Brembo caliper bracket for Kato, but had to make a spacing bracket for Berg to suit 320mm disc. Just swap-out front axle spacers for different diameters and have sprocket carriers for each bike.
Had to cut holes in fork covers to clear front tyre.
Select 'wild' map setting then hang-on!
Might run the Berg in a few club open ride days this year. Do want to hurt it coz it is mainly my desert racing bike.

Won't have a good feel for the "fun" factor till spring. We are under snow and cold temps here in MN.

I decided to give the same combo a try on my xrr



You can see the weather here needs some improvement as well.

Not to bust your balls , but if you are going to run full street tires , there are much better choices and sizes.120/70/17 and 160/60/17.The lower profile tires will handle much better and there are stickier compounds available in these sizes.

I use the bike to commute 50 miles a day, so some sport/tour tires
give me a lot more mileage than pure soft compound sport tires do.

I know the feeling Rob. Sticky tread is nice but for a while there I was replacing tires every 3K miles. That was with a 140 mile day commute. I got pretty good at mounting and balancing though.
