After attending the AMA Supermoto race yesterday out in Tooele I got hooked. I would like some setup tips(like do I want my suspension to be real stif? or should I lower my clamps so it drops my frontend?) from you guys that are experienced with this. I have a PitsterPro x4r, I'll be getting a set of supermoto wheels (12"12")and tires from Pitster.



Thanks for the help.

i had the kendas that come with the x2 motard wheels, but those things are very unstable on the street. I love the bt601's that I have now, and the x4 makes a great mid size motard, you will enjoy!

I just wish I could get that damn rear caliper bled, the brakes are the only cheap part of the x4 I dont like.

The brakes on the x4 do need some fine adjusting, I think im gonna try a cr85 swap or something along those lines. Get rid of the stock fluid and add some real break fluid like Galfer or Motul. I stiffened up the stock suspension just by adjusting the rebound/preload and so far that seems to work fine for me

since my last post above i reassembled my rear caliper and master cylinder, flush, filled, and bled them using a MityVac (the only way to do these brakes).

Thats exactly what they needed was a complete flush with Galfer fluid, a good bleed and a proper adjusting and now the work TO GOOD. Im gonna have to tone them down some, im locking the rear way to easy now. Now all i have to do is work on the front and I will take back every bad thing I said about the brakes

Yeah the stock Pitster brakes work great after you go through them I have raced Motard with them and they worked great.
+1

Haven't used mine yet, but they feel much better after the swap. Much more progressive feeling instead of the stock mystery squeeze.
