RMX 450z 2015 Motard

Hi people new to this forum and have searched for info with no luck

Looking at getting some motard wheels for my bike. Not to race but ride to work for a few months. But i am a hoon.
Things i have picked up 17inch only. cush hubs for protecting gear box.
Need help for what gearing (sprocket size) dont want to rev the crap out it to get to 100km (14-46?). main question i guess where is my best option to get these rims for product vs price. also i don't want stuff around with the front caliber just want to be able change front wheel over front motard to dirt.
Thanks in advance
Pete

That would be nice but the brake line will be in the way so you have to unbolt the caliper to move the line to the outside of the fork leg even if you use the same size disk.

Righto, that seems a pain in the you no what. Same there is no other option?
Also the torpedo site suggests * RMX450 (07-15) (Note: Loose Speedo Drive)
and that also seems a pain and defeats the purpose.
Thanks for the reply fellas

You could fit an aftermarket (Trailtech?) speedo, they usually use a magnetic pick up sensor.

you can always get standard dirt wheel and put on road tires

much cheaper maybe some available at wreckers and fits straight up

suzuki are great at using the same parts over different models

Bridgey do battax road tires in 21 and 18's they work great and if you really push then hard you should be on a track

pretty sure the rears have a higher profile than a dirt tire, then go one extra on front sprocket and no issue with 110km Cruise speeds

I'm running D604's on my TE510, fantastic for the road. My stock gearing was 13-50, but changed to a 15-44 set-up. Works fine on the highway, though it's me that gives up first due to wind than the bike. They're pretty cheap too, so try them out before you make the motard investment.
