Thanks for that Idea on the 380. I hadnt really thought about one of those. It would save on the big bore & if it aint enough I could always do another 500 conversion & it has the newer chassis. I was thinking the 380 was only mid 90's. Yeah that sounds good 02+

Finding one street legal isn't hard either. . You really get the direction I'm going. I might move the xr if I can get something lighter thats streetable. XR's are friggin heavy, heavy but bullet proof

Bro, if it "ain't enough" it isn't running right!

I MX race a 505 SXf and scrambles 530 and 570 4t and the 380 feels like getting hit in the ass with lightning. I won't even take it on the MX track. I've been all 4t for the last decade + and I can't go back to 2t. It requires extreme throttle control, remember these were beating the 500s in Europe back in the day. A guy was leading points in the German sumoto series on a 380 engine in a new frame at least up to a month or so ago. It blows away the 450s!

my 380 bit me in the ass many times even with a slow turn throttle and a heavy flywheel weight.....i would think for supermoto the engine would be incredible....its got like 55 hp....in a 240 lb bike....
