Friend has a Honda CRF450R. He blew the original engine so he had it rebuilt by some race company and now it is the sickest. I wouldn't get rid of the 600RR for one..save up so you can have both. If you buy used you can usually find a sweet deal on those.

I have a 2005 suzuki DRZ400SM full motard and it is the "funnest" thing ever. Once you get good with is you can drift into corners and ride wheelies for days. Wheelies are much much easer on a motard vs. my 600rr. I have been a honda fan my whole life never got anything els but this. Very pleased, they are pretty fast as well and all I have is full exhaust and rejetted and air box mod. I have gone 118 with a little more. Two thumbs up.

If you've riden serious motox, you'll dig motard. If you're street only, you'll need to get comfortable in the air (and the obstacles that get you there) before you can truly enjoy motard. A 250cc 4-stroke is a great bike to learn motard on.

the reason I am making it is my buddy doenst think he wan'ts to get a street bike he loves motoX to much so he is going to get a 450 and supermoto it and make it streetlegal so he can ride with me and all that fun stuff but I think it would be the funnest time in the world in the twistys riding motard style and I am just worried the 250 won't be enough power for me to get nasty in the corners with it but I am just being stupid so I think I will just buy some supermotowheels and tires get this thing street legal and go at it!

Definitely check out supermotojunkie for the latest of what guys are running if your gonna street it..I was doing some research on the exact same thing you are awhile back..A motard would be soo sick for Hawaii..Anyways last time I checked there were guys running tubes and some guys not running em, just making the rims as airtight as possible..If you're gonna run tubes, the problem is they heat up quickly..On long distance rides you lose tire pressure fast..But if it's gonna be a track bike or for short blasts then it shouldn't be a problem..I notice that nowadays the factory guys are running the marchensinis..but those are some serious dough..Troy Lee long beach sm is tommorow and I'm going, woohoo! ;)

yup them rims are way to much
plus the reason most of the fatory guys run em are they get free replacements
those wheels after some Big jumps and hard landings will bend or break/crack
Alpina wheels would be the way to go
man they are sweet looking

As for the 250
dude if you have the bike just buy the parts for it and try it out
if ya need a bigger bike later almost all the250 parts are exchangeable with the 450's
Just re gear it man with my CRF250r on big tracks with long straights i run a 39tooth rear / 14 front

small go kart tracks i run 47 rear / 13 front

hope this helps

Suzuki.... they make a street legal tricked out bike stock. I know its a suzuki but they are pretty damn cool. Only bad thing is low mileage range (its like a 2-3 gallon tank.

My motard (see sig) is more fun than any other street bike I have ridden, despite the fact that it will barely do 100mph.

It is entirely possible that I will never own a "sportbike" again for the street. They're just more at home on the track in every way, and I don't see their point on the street (as long as I am able to afford one bike for street and one bike for track/racing).

I'm hoping the Big-4 Japanese manufacturers will follow the lead of Ducati (Hypermotard) and KTM (Supermoto 950) and start working on street-focused v-twins that capture the guilty fun of thumper-based motards (e.g. DRZ400SM, XR650, my SM610) while being a bit more suitable for extended freeway riding. Sure they'll be heavier and a bit less flickable, but they will still have a tremendous appeal for the segment of the population that is interested in motarding but will never attempt "backing it in" to a corner.
