My previous attempts at Enduros were seriously hampered by the stock tank. I had to pit twice in a 3 hour race as the stock 8 litre tank was only good for around 1 hours riding. I picked up a 2nd hand 12 litre tank of ebay for 25 quid, bargain! It was

Cheers Coops! Not much more left to do now, pretty much just waiting on graphics. Hopefully sorted a set of Ti Pegs and braided hoses too.

OEM or Vertex cast, replace at sensible intervals and you cant go too far wrong. Forged pistons are good, but if you go that route you need to make sure you, or who ever rides the bike knows that it needs to be warmed up well before going WFO. Or it ... more »

Whilst researching MX to Enduro conversions online I came across the G2 Ergonomics Throttle Cam system. The kit comes with 3 cams, a 10% and 20% less pull cam (up to half throttle) and a stock cam. The RM motor is really abrupt, so I’m hoping the throttle

Cheers! Yep I used SFX. Quick turn around and good price, most importantly they did a really good job too. Would highly recommend.

Sticking with the stock wheel set on this build, 19’’ rear and 21 front. An 18’’ rear would be ideal but I totted it up and it was going to be expensive so for the moment I’m sticking with a 19’’. I had the wheels stripped and hubs anodized a dark bronze/mag

15-17 RMZ are black. Same, so much better than the stock white which turns yellow/orange after half a season!

For the front brake I bought a Nissin system from a Honda. Smaller, lighter and more powerfull, this is a great mod for any Suzuki. I gave the brake a thorough clean, rebuilt it and bled with fresh fluid. Fitted a Renthal Intellilever. Red cap and aluminium

Next job was to get everything cleaned up and ready to fit. I scrubbed and picked the rads. Cleaned up the hoses and replaced a few dodgey hose clips. Cleaned and re greased the linkage and swingarm. I did the Weston Beach Race on this bike late last

For the suspension I went ahead a bought a KYB ENZO factory fork and a virtually new standard KYB shock from an RMZ250, complete with Pro Circuit clamps. For Enduro use I plan on using the stock RM Showa forks with the new KYB shock. I really like the

To start I tore the bike down to the frame to get it powder coated gloss black. I was super lucky and managed to bag a mint condition light speed carbon sump guard and carbon frame guard set over winter. Super light and look awesome. Finished off with

In July 2017 whilst doing my weekly ebay browse I came across a super low hour 2008 RM250. It looked pristine in the pictures and with an asking price of £3100 I couldn’t say no. I went to view the bike and it looked even better than in the pics. Apart

It's questionable as to whether he will ever get back to the speed he was showing at the start of the 17 SX season. But I'd like to think he will, certainly looks promising at the moment. I'd say once he has won a couple of races, straight up beating ... more »

I'd guess the JGR RMZ450's to be in the low 230's. I've seen regular guys (with deep wallets) on other forums take their old model RMZ450's down to 226lbs. So it would be fairly safe to assume the JGR bikes to be around 230lbs, the new 18 RMZ450 is generally ... more »
