I'm thinking this is a pretty good deal, and I'm driving home for Thanksgiving to NY. So is this worth it? I'm a super idiot with supermoto shit.

I wouldn't pay more than 3300-3400 for the SMR unless he has receipts from the "fresh rebuild" to show that everything in the top end was replaced. You'll want to verify that the stock valve guides were replaced with sintered iron valve guides. the stock brass guides wear out really fast w/ the Ti valves.


I'm suprised that XC-W hasn't sold yet for that price.....

Would this bike be good on the track? What else would need to go into it to make it raceworthy? I'm going to hit every race I can this year since it's so cheap.

I was going to show up with 30 hundred's and see what he said on the race bike.

I was looking for a raceonly, but if there are street legal (Race competitive) bikes I can be a fucktard on the road with, well than all the better

It's a race bike out of the box , just happens to be plated so that you can lose your license faster.

The XC-W would make a great street hooligan bike, but it's not nearly as race ready for sumo as that SMR in NY.

For racing, you'd want to toss the stock dirt brakes and Warp9 rotor on the XC-W and get some decent SM stuff. you would probably need to at least respring the suspension, get axle and peg sliders and catch can, and I'd want to upgrade to a 5" rear wheel too. Power on the XC-W will feel a little soft compared to most 450 MX bikes - a 41mm carb and different exhaust would help. Lighter flywheel would help too.

So I'm not as dumb as I thought. I've never been done wrong by a properly built race bike. I'm gonna get that I think. Dad owes me, time to collect haha.

If all you want out of the bike is to track and race, that is what the SMR is built for - The one Stan posted is a bad ass street toy and would be fun for the track but that SMR was built for one thing , "Super Moto Race" aka SMR - Better Brakes, for one and a frame that was designed for the track, not a woods/dirt convert

Stoked to have you out with us next year - You'll love it - SOOOOOOO laid back and all about fun - Zero egos

I just texted dude with the smr, no sintered valve guides and no papers on the rebuild. I'm assuming he is a do it yourself'er. What is a fair price sumo dudes? 3gs? Or less?

Hey, it will be easier to wait anyway. My wife was going to be pissed off if I went down and got it. I did the old flowers for her on my birthday trick because I was seriously going to go buy that. I'll wait, I want something that will be competitive and a little newer, I'm not looking to race bullshit.
Another thing is I'd really like to buy something that someone locally either is selling or knows about so I have the real deal history.

well, the suspension, brakes, wheels/tires were designed for the SM track.

the frame, subframe, swingarm, and triples are all the same as the SX motocross model. In 07 they added some bracing between the frame downtubes, but all the geometry was still the same. they did also go to lower offset triples in 07. Not sure about the 08/09 frame, but the '12 shares a frame with the SX-F as well. It's always really just been a MX bike with SM brakes/susp/wheels.

Again, retarded me, what would this need for the track ?

It's funny that I'm pretty knowledgable with street and race bikes, but I don't know shit about dirtbikes. Never even rode one.

For your 1st season out, that bike is ready - The slipper and the 5 inch rear are nice to have but by no means necessary - Catch Can, Safety Wire and sliders are the only "needs" on that Husky and dude is in Wisc and a motivated seller

Ha - Steve - Love it - For $10K, there are SOOOOO many other bikes I would buy before that one - Hell, there is a SWEET CRF 450 on SMJ now for like $6K that is dialed in
