I'm thinking about next winters project - converting my XTR to a supermoto.

Before everyone tells me I should have bought the XTX in the first place, I've started using the XTR off road and if I can convert it to a part time supermoto then I could run more aggressive offroad tyres on the old off road rims and have save myself on regular tyre changes.

My questions relates to buying some XTX wheels from a breakers or from yamaha (prices anyone?) - would they fit the XTR without any further modding?

Also, what sort of price would I be looking at to buy some aftermarket wheels and do the conversion myself? What parts would I need?

I've only just started thinking about this and would seriously consider doing it if I can keep the cost under 500 (exc tyres).

Matt

Thanks Theo - i was a bit lazy last night Rolling Eyes

I like the look of the Pegaso option - they look smart and the price seems right to me.

Cheers
