Yup, here I am at the kart track about to pass a DRZSM. This is with Shinko 705s on the NX250 19" front and stock rear.

Since I want a little dirt road capability I'm going with the Distanzias in supermoto size/compound. Won't be running track, at this point, and am looking for a set up more suited to city play, normal backroads, mountain passes and a bit of graded dirt road if necessary. They will be going on my TE630 and I've got a SM630 that my girlfriend rides. Just getting tired of ruining top shelf offroad tires on the TE for pavement use.

OK, just ordered a 19" Excel hoop and spokes / nipples. I'll lace it to my stock XR-R hub. Or, at least I'm gonna try

Fairly easy. I did it with hand tools.

Just to fit and align the wheels:
Swap bearing
Asst. of washers used as spacers (I'll be ordering real spacers sometime soon)

Fitting the brakes a little more involved
Had to bore out gs500 caliper bracket to dr350 axle size
Cut off a portion of the chain block (the rear sprocket interferes)
Had to grind a little bit (1mm) off the caliper bracket width
The real pain was hacksawing the 3/4" aluminum plate for the front caliper relocation bracket (due to larger rotor)

You lose the speedo. I put an electronic one (hall sensor).

Heidenau tires are expensive in the USA. Do they provide any significant advantage with their SM offering?

Looks good. Is the MX style rear fender a bolt on or did it require some modification to fit?

Its from a yz400/426. they are the same bike, so it's pretty much bolt on. you need to cut a notch for the coolant overflow, but if you buy aftermarket, they mark where the notch needs to be cut. I also had to cut about a 2 inch notch from the exhaust side, since the yz pipe I have is bigger than the stock wr.
