Request! Want to get into Sumo racing

Like the title says. Only problem is I am leaving my semi-high paying job to go back to skool. I hope to have another semi-high paying job while I go, but it is not a certainty. I also want to keep my nice AMA bike too, lol.

So my request, for all you sumo junkies that frequent the boards I don't even know about, is to help me find a cheap ass bike that I can thrash and trash next season if/when I can't afford trackdays and racing.

Seriously, any help is appreciated.

Sign up at supermotojunkie.com and look for a DRZ - Inexpensive, parts for days and they can take a beating - You can get one for tween $2K and 25 hundo

If you're going to race and don't care about street legal, skip the DRZ and get something already race prepped. that'll save you some money you'd spend getting the DRZ setup. KTM 450 SMRs are super cheap right now.....

Not gonna sell the bike till I have the valves checked and the engine gone through. Not getting out at all, really don't want to sell it but you know every thing is for sale. Shit I could part it out for more than I bought it for easily. I have nothing to hide on the bike its a bitch to start cus I need the valves adjusted and also with the high compression pistons adds to the fun. LOL

I am bringing the bike over to www.williamsmotorwerx.net to have the work done. Once that is done I might toss it up for sale for about 6 grand. The engine has about 3 grand worth of work done to it already then the other crap like ohlins forks ohlins TTX shock graves factory exhaust that you cannot buy anymore and the galespeed rims its worth a pretty penny.

2k?
maybe something like a ten year old converted DRZ400E, WR450, or KTM450EXC.

you'll find plenty of good used bikes for around 3k, and some really nice bikes 4k and up.

Checking valves is simple and I even have the shims, which I don't need anymore as I think Honda are diff diam.
