ok im thinking of getting a ttr 250 and turning it into a supermoto, so apart from the outlay of the bike I would need supermoto wheels and maybe a 325 engine upgrade and what else would be needed ? . and also I think I would want (seeing as im a shorty) is a lowering link preferably to be the same height as my serow . and around what would be the cost for the project maybe sourcing some parts used thanks

Hi Skyrider, you might want to check out my thread here - ttr250.activeboard.com/t65426143/interest-check-supermoto-kit/

Essentially there are two ways you can go:

1) get some rims and lace them to ttr hubs

2) get some supermoto wheels and a caliper bracket and some wheel spacers

Obviously both of these two options have different time, cost, and effort implications..

I chose to do the latter as I was interested in having a larger front rotor.

I'm about 5'10" and with supermoto wheels I don't find a lowering link necessary, although I didn't really think one was necessary with the normal wheels either. Supermoto wheels will drop the bike a fair amount though so take that into account!

Probably also worth waiting for the 350 kit which with any luck will be appearing soon, see the thread here: ttr250.activeboard.com/t62869904/350cc-big-bore-kit-for-the-ttr250-updates-and-gossip/

Happy to answer any other questions if you have any!

Sorry I can't really give any advice on cost but obviously given the amount of variables involved it really depends on which way you decide to go and how you decide to get to where you want to be.

P.s: supermoto ttr is lots of fun
