  5. Sorry its been so long since i updated my build. I still need to get it running right but at least it is running. I took it for a little ride tonight and it didnt run half bad. It sounds amazing when your going through the gears. The brakes and suspension felt good. I was quite pleased. It was dark out so I didn't go very far. In the daylight once I know its going to stay running I will take it on a little bit longer ride and try to take a ride video. Here are a few pics and a video of my progress. Ps, it sounds much better in person :)

    I'd say he could always throw some nifty street tires on there and go supermoto instead?!

    Yeah,or some good dual purpose tires,so you can go anywhere.Those knobbies aren't safe at all on the street,especially cornering. lha
     
  15. The front is a metzler karoo. I have never used one before but it is the factory tire on several dual sports so i figure it cant be to bad. Now as for the rear... It is a shinko 255 trail pro. It feels a little squishy but very grippy. So far they feel pretty solid. I have talked to a few guys that have run them on the street with good results. They are DOT rated tire. I Don't plan on doing any long street rides but we will see how they measure up. I will be taking it easy. I had kenda track master II's on my old bike. Now they were scary in the corners. :)

    Done. I really like that TX650 but your build is more original and to me cooler.
     
  17. Thanks man. I really appreciate it.
