550 Supermoto project

I got the Behr Cush rear wheel on the 07 550. Barely. The tire is an Avon trail rider 160/60/17 but was at least 5mm wider than the Michelin Pilot Power on my 650.
That left me after offset with just 1 or 2mm on the left and about 5mm on the right. I have room for a slight shift to the right if any problems but it works fine.
It has the sprocket spacer also.
I clearanced the silencer quite a bit to make room for it and have the 06
enduro shock installed that I had shortened to 390mm instead of 400mm

Here's a few pics. Don't mind the enduro front. I'm getting there..

Looks really good. This is my 5.10x17 it was cheap and quite good on the road for my liking. Its dot tire.

Nice Polska, you got some bite with that tire. These Avons are 90 street 10 dirt. With this setup I will dual sport with street and a few fireroads mixed in.

Well thats about it. I didnt go all out with the project but 17mm triple clamps. Raised the forks 10mm, caliper adapter. Good enough for what I want with it

My is Shinco 244. I wanted good trail dot tire and this one also had good reviews. I'm surprised at how well it is on the road. Haven't tried it on the dirt yet. Will do some trails riding when the weather finally warms up in Ontario. Hey, if you hear of any 2007 or 2008 nice example of Fe650 road plated let me know. I'm looking for about a year and a half and three already sold just before I could pounce on it.

There's a 2005 Fs650 in Los Altos near San Francisco on Craigslist. They want $5500

I see often these pre 70 deg Husabergs on the west coast. Both US and in Canada. But where I live in a year and half only one 2008 fe 450 and no road legal. For trully off road/trails I already have 07 exc 525. I am patiently looking for 08 fe 650.
