Always Wanted a 2T Sumo - LIKE

I kinda dig this thing - Off SMJ - Asking $3900 w/Dirt Trim too

I know the lack of engine braking on the 2T is a factor in Sumo but I am guessing this thing is pretty light and has gobs of power

'04 250SX with 17.8 hours on top and bottom end.
-RB Designs bored carb with divider plate and slide machined from 6.5 to 7.0
-New, take-off 300 top end parts included with a new KTM o.e. piston and head modded by Mike at Cycle Playground (MikeS on KTMTalk).
-Behr 16.5x3.5 and 17x5.0 wheels
-Two set of Metzeler Racetec Drifts, one set has one trackday at Summit Point Shenandoah, the other set is brand new (I think the fronts are late '07, the rears are early '08 date codes).
- 6-piston Beringer caliper, rotor and BRO-master. Orange caliper and rotor, red master.
-Suspension was done by FastBikeIndustries. It is sprung for a 190-200 lb. rider, lowered one inch and valved for supermoto.
-Scotts Damper
-14mm triple clamps from an '03 200SX
-Acerbis supermoto handguards, Hard Parts axle and peg slider
-Hard Parts SMR catch can
-Safety wired
-Dirt set-up with Dunlop 952s in excellent shape.
-O.E. 20mm triple clamps
-13, 14 and 15T front sprockets and a wide range of rears.
-Chains to work with all gearing combos.
-New in the bag FMF spark arrestor silencer
-Large assortment of jets and needles.

You got me jonesing for that thing too. I have plans in the back of my head for a '08-'10 KTM 300 XC for my next bike to set up for both MX and SM.

If this thing were a few years newer, and I didn't have all my money spent elsewhere for this year already...

Anybody interested in an '06 450 SMR with MX and SM set up? Bill, can we work another multi bike swap for the remnants of your 300 for spares?

Are (18) hours top and bottom a long time for that thing? - Seems well sorted

for SM use I'd probably do a new top end every 50-75 hours or so. that thing will see a lot of high revs. on the 250s and 300s people often will go 200+ hours on a top end for woods/HS riding. the rebuilt bottom end should last for a while now.

the awesome thing for 2T's is the cost of the rebuild vs a 4T.
$200 for a top end, and maybe $500 for the bottom.

That is "asking" price and it includes the Dirt Trim - I am sure you could get it for less

It is the right time of year for a lot of talk!

Agreed that it is high, but he does have a lot of spares. I wish it was an 09.

somewhere around the low 3-thousands would be reasonable IMO. he'd be better off selling the 250 in dirt trim and parting out the SM stuff and spares.

How good at dirt riding are sumos? Is it just a tire/wheel swap and you're off?

SM setup bikes do ok on a smooth MX track, but they suck on rough/choppy trails and tracks.

A well built Track Sumo will have a stiffer front end and shortened swing arm as well so any jumps maybe a tad hard

Hahahahaha - I am different when it comes to someone else's bike

With the exception of when Mopar lent me his 250 and said, "I expect you to crash it" then when I told him of every crash (WIR, FVOR, etc etc) his reply was great - "unless you broke something, I don't care"

BH, I still hold a grudge towards you ya big country sum bitch - 1st time on a dirty in over 15 years, FVOR, on Mopars 250 for MAYBE 30 seconds and BH talks me into a hill climb - I wipe half way up and slide all the way down - Fucker

WOW! That thing is sexy!
That SXV swingarm is my favorite, Carbon brakes, Panels handlebars, Marzocci forks
not to mention the pain your arm sockets are going to feel when you twist on the cr500 engine.

Yeah, his bike won ALL SORTS of awards and he spared no expense when building it

That thing is about as bad as bad gets - I feel honored to even run the same forks (sigh)
