    Gp shift on duel sport


    I'm in the market for a duel sport. I want to stay in the 250ish pound weight bike dry or wet. Nothing large like a 650 enduro. Factory street legal. I want factory blinkers. So KTM, Husky, and will stem out to a little heavier Yamaha wr. Can any of these be converted to gp shift? I plan on riding a mixture of street and off-road.

    GP shift, no. Well, anything is POSSIBLE, but no.

    none of them use shift linkages that can be flipped. you'd have to split cases and machine tranny bits to accomplish something like that.

    Have you considered a front wheel drive sedan with snow tires?

    No but I guess i could add 2 side cars and a trailer as the trunk. GVWR might not handle it.

    Nothing beats a street dirty and banging down eleven down shifts and dropping the clutch to slide the rear in front of the hoes. Way harder to do with GP..

    You should ask for a left side kicker while you're at it. Maybe a thumb throttle too.

    There was an absolutely gorgeous CRF450R on Facebook for a while, it had been turned into a F450 bike. I think it was $8500..

    I don't know how this morphed into supersingles, but there were a handful of those bikes racing at NJMP with AHRMA last weekend. Cool machines! I'll say it again. Sucks that CCS ruined the lightweight class by letting the big ducatis in as these bikes have few places to run competitively. LRRS is much lamer because of it.

    I think this man is the Internet's foremost expert on cataloging all available motorcycle related for-sale ads. He knows what is and what is not available anywhere on the planet.

    For the record I was only talking about rearsets for GP Shift. I will gladly love to make this about building a motard into a GP bike though. I would be even happier if someone will build one and let me ride it.

    I dunno, singles get a defacto rules pass in CCS just about everywhere. They have supersingles as a dedicated class in CCS, plus do well in LW Sportsman. LRRS adds Motard and lets them into Moto3 no matter their displacement. I think you have to blame the market more than CCS/LRRS for the existing rules structure, if there were lots of fun singles out there chomping at the bit to race the rules would be adjusted to give them room.

    If it's expensive, impractical and beautiful.. I'm on it like a fly on a pile of very seductive manure.
