I just bought a 86 Honda XL600r and was wondering if you could convert these to a SUPERMOTO? If so do you have to tweek the suspension at all? Thanks

the stock suspension should be fine,its basically pretty close to the same bike as the 650l.put the wheels on and try it out.maybe stiffen up the rebound and compression if you can for the road.the xr600 seemed to have more power than the 650l too.i had a half dozen xl600s and they were great bikes.

I also need to look up prices for a front fender and maybe a new gas tank. Any ideas?
