The Good and Bad

The bike is a great bike. It’s heavier a MX bike, but for trail riding it was fine. The larger engine it better for street riding. prices for the bike are extremely I ordered most of my parts Munn Racing, where I get a for being a lifetime member of internet forum.

The engine missed a beat. It always and ran perfectly, no matter the altitude. If it for two things, I would probably have this bike


1) These bike It’s not the kind of buzzy you get on a 250/450 MX bike. When say it’s like riding a shaker, they aren’t It’s a low frequency, healthy vibration.

I did everything I could of to reduce the vibes. Heavy bar end I made from brass Rubber peg inserts helped. the carb helped.

Thicker and wearing bike shorts my gear helped. But in reality, more than an hour of riding and it would start to me out. I did several half-day with the bike, but my hands tingled through the lunch and my … was usually really at the end of the day.

2) These bikes are also and I am not. With a seat of over 38 inches (and sag than a MX bike) I was doing to get a single toe down when to a stop. This made it hard for me to ride off road.

You can get links, but the bike is still no matter what.

3) Clutch cylinder tends to leak. a common problem with the 625 You can replace the o-ring a few times, but you need to replace the whole

Mine leaked very so I was always able to keep an eye on it and oil in the master cylinder.

4) Drivetrain was also pretty bad. On every spirited ride I did on bike, I came back one or two broken spokes on the rear On several occasions I broke rear sprocket bolts as

If a bike ever needed a drive, this was it!

5) My bike with a Baja Designs sport kit. I thought the switch was horrible. I had extra from my R6, so I wired in the switch from that, which was better.

6) The original headlight isn’t useful for riding at night. I mounted the headlight from a Z1000 on the bike, which spectacutar and had excellent low and high visibility.


Supermoto Conversion

I wanted a supermoto bike, and was my intentions when I first this bike. I spent collecting parts for the conversion, and it was done, this may have the most fun I’ve ever had on a on public roads. I bought the for my conversion:

* KTM supermoto wheelset front and 17×4.25 rear cush drive)

* Bearinger 4-piston brake and floating 310mm rotor

* shock from a Duke II shorter and stiffer springs)

forks from a 2004 SX were lowered, sprung, and for supermoto use

50 hp) so I was never hitting speeds like a sportbike when riding spiritedly, but it plenty hard up to the speed This also lowered the enough that I didn’t any trouble on technical terrain. the shorter forks (2 drop) and front wheel/tire (another 2 the rake/trail numbers weren’t

The bike handled fine, but it one you would feel comfortable without your hands on the
