Dirt bike Street bike
Motocross Hideout includes anything dirt bike related, even if it is ridden on asphalt. So, just what is a Supermotard? Yep, a dirt bike with sport-bike style wheels and tires for riding on the street. If you’ve ever ridden a dirt bike on the street, you’ll know how exhilarating it can be when you whack the throttle and the front wheel comes off the ground. Motards are the ultimate hooligan bike, and can get you into a lot of trouble if you don’t follow the rules. However, if you want to legally ride on the street or go to track-days on a road course with your dirt bike, here’s some things you will need to replace or install.
A road-legal exhaust is a good idea if your bike is being inspected. Most dirt bikes have “For off-road use only” stamped on the stock exhaust, which isn’t going to fly if a cop scrutinizes your motard. Also, bikes that carry passengers must have an appropriate seat set-up and passenger pegs. I know that supermoto’s are solo-bikes 99.9% of the time, but it’s just something else to keep in mind.
Now it’s time to start building your bike! All of these parts add up quickly, which is why properly set-up supermotards (especially when plated) are so expensive to buy used. You probably won’t get your money back when you go to sell it, but it can be worth the money to know that you built it with all of the parts that you want. If you do some shopping around and have the whole winter to piece your bike together, you can find some good deals on used or even new parts. Besides, if you buy a complete supermoto kit for your dirt bike, you can always go back to the stock set-up if you want to ride in the dirt again.
I know that was a lot to take in, so you should bookmark this page/website and come back to it throughout your build. If you just want to see all the parts involved in making a supermoto, here’s a simple list (how far you want to go down it is your decision):
- Supermoto wheels and street tires
- Street gearing/sprockets (depends on what kind of riding you’re doing)
- Upgraded stator or battery system for lights
- Larger front brake rotor and relocation bracket
- Better front brake caliper and master cylinder
- Turn signals
- Hi/low beam headlight switch
- Street legal exhaust
- Passenger seat/pegs
