OFFICIAL: supermoto stunt problem/solution thread

ok here we go! there are alot of issues that need to be discussed when it comes to stunting a supermoto.... certain problem areas!!! this thread is to discuss any problems/issues people have had when it comes to stunting a supermoto and what people have done to fix them. here's a few i've noticed


- running through rear brake pads like its goin outta style!
(no solution from what i have found.... get over it)

- runnin hot
(get a thermostatically controlled fan... someone chime in on this please caus i need one )

from what i hear there is no good (one finger lockup) setup to go with yet... mainly because the stock caliper is just right for foot lockup but too weak for 1 finger, aaaand running a sportbike caliper makes the footbrake WAY too touchy!
BUT from what ryan moore told me a 954 rear caliper fits in the gap pretty well... so what i was thinking was someone needs to make a dual caliper bracket holding both a stock caliper(for the foot) and the 954 caliper(for the HB)

any issues and solutions BRING EM ON..... and someone make this a sticky!:YEAH

Re: OFFICIAL: supermoto stunt problem/solution thread

Haha, my biggest thing is always arcing to the left...I can sit with my left butt cheek on the right side of the seat and I still go left.....im tryign to learn right handed circles...I think that would help me to steer either way when needed.

Re: OFFICIAL: supermoto stunt problem/solution thread

things to check for rider error:
- see if your pulling back harder w/ your throttle hand than than your left
- maybe putting too much pressure on left foot peg compared to right?
becaus if your shifting you weight hard to the right those two points would be where would be havin a problem... just like shiftin your weight like that would kick the bike to the left to start a left circle wheelie.

if you feel it pull off to the left try to quickly shift your weight to the left pulling back with your left hand and pushin harder with your right foot.... its 100% mental... i used to have the same problem!

if your doing these things right check tire wear and rear axle alignment

Oh yeah Alignment is perfect....I know its mental everything we do in life is mental. theres no difference between you and james stewart, dale jr, tiger woods, travis pastrana, nick hayden...etc. No difference at all the only thing that separates you is your own head...yall know what I mean and im ranting on now.

Re: OFFICIAL: supermoto stunt problem/solution thread

I got a major problem. Ever since i made my KTM street legal I cant stop doing rolling endos at every single solitary stop i make and wheelie in full blown traffic just because I'm bored as **** and all i have to do is think of a trick in my head and the bike does it all by itself haha.

Re: OFFICIAL: supermoto stunt problem/solution thread

PROBLEM: whats better in all. crf 250 for stunts. or 450 for stunts.
as this would be my first full on stunter. i dont wanna make the wrong choice but then again i dont think there is one. i think the 450 is more power. and 250 more learnin. then again i allready know more then what u would call a squid.. so ya. I think i solved my problem by my self
conclusion 450..
