2010 990 Supermoto R Conversion

I have a 2010 990 SMR that I love to rip around on the street on but I also like exploring down dirt roads and am planning in the fall riding the Shadow of the Rockies TAT - I had a set of wheels with rotors sprocket etc... made and I can switch from street tires to dual sport in less than 30 minutes so check this out

Banke Performance in California built it all for me and it fits all the stock stuff such as calipers etc... I added the tires and rear sprocket

What did it cost you if you don't mind me asking? Do you have their number?

If you will notice I trimmed the mini fender that is part of the fork guards that goes right over the front tire as it wouldn't clear. The front is a 19" and the rear is a 17"

Wow that's mean looking. Are you going to change the suspension to be more compliant off road?

That's just cool as hell!

We've been told on this forum that it just can't be done...so we'd sure love to hear the details!

Hey Bronc and Chuck - Thanks ! She did turn out looking pretty cool huh !

I bought front and rear RAD hubs laced up with Excel rims and Galfer rotors from Banke Performance- Felton California. They were great guys to deal with but they had not done these particular wheels so I had to give them most of the dimesnions but everything fit up perfect. The tires are Metzler Karoo Travelers

I don't know about the suspension mods yet as I don't plan on hardcore offroad with it but Like I mentioned TAT and some dirt road exploring

Looks nice

But i think the front brakes are too agressive for offroad...

Angles

Does the larger front make it feel less twitchy?

I am not sure I'm getting on with my 990SM, so this (with more DS/roady tyres) looks the perfect answer.

Love it.

I would agree if I were riding at race speed etc... but for exploring dirt/gravel roads they will be fine as I have ridden the bike many miles on dirt roads with same brakes but with the street tires and had no problems
