Re: Anyone ever turned a 500R into a dual sport???
Yes! a twin! NO LESS than a 2 cylinder motor for any dual purpose, EVER. thumpers kinda annoy me in a way. makes me think of listening to my chainsaw or weed whip when you wind em out, a twin just sounds more real and is more actual fun.
The challenging factor would be the weak design of the frame, which you would have to brace a little/lot to really make it a great alll purpose bike. I'd still love an XR650L supermoto though.
for best results, mix with beer and motors. <br /><br />2 86 Ninja 1000R's
