Absolute perfection! This has to be the perfect RM. I can't pick one fault with your bike, it is flawless! The black rims look incredible as well, that must be a tough choice to know which ones to run! Where did you get the Ti bolts for the rear mudflap ... more »

What kind of figure did you come to? I'd love to do it but can see it being hellishly expensive. You would need to go for a week really to make the flights worth while.

If you plan on using an RM wheel and axle in an RMZ swingarm then you will also need to machine something to fill the difference in the swingarm slots for the axle. RM axle blocks may work in an RMZ swingarm, if not you will need to use RMZ blocks and ... more »

Yep! Definite top 5 potential in that team

Reply to Rmz - Rm compatibility Please Look 9/22/2017 1:46 AM

You would need to use an entire RMZ rear end (wheel, brake, axle etc) if you were to do this. The RMZ and RM rear brakes do not switch over unfortunately

If they don't fit and your buddy wants to get shot of them then let me know! I'd love a set for my 08 RM

Custom is always the best way to go, find a good company and work with them and you can pretty much get anything you want if you provide enough detail. However Rob Walters (DocWob) has a good selection on his ebay at the moment http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-RM125-RM250-2001-2010-Factory-MXGP-team-graphics-plastics-GR1015-/382144917344?epid=1570233239&hash=item58f99caf60:g:vmcAAOSwq~tZWrUR ... more »

Check out Pulp MX's 'GP's Classic Steel' section. Basically reviews of loads of bikes covering a wide era of motocross. Very detailed and although bike specific, the reviews often compare that years model to other brands of the same year. Giving you ... more »

Jeez... it just got better and better!

Lovely bike, done a great job. Awesome work on the photography as well, those backdrops make for some great photo's.

Steven Clarke? Not necessarily saying he is a better pick than Searle but I'm surprised he hasn't had a mention. Definitely has flashes of speed and has the potential to pull a decent result.

I'd definitely recommend taking your suspension to a shop. Getting the correct springs is always the best place to start, but the main issue with the suspension is the valving. MX valving is just far too firm for enduro. I rode my RM at 20 clicks out ... more »
