Thread: Supermoto in CMRA Practice

    I rode the piss out of my 450 this past weekend. Best I could do was crash out of 3rd. I’m buying a ninja 400!

They seems to last the season and win...I can think of one that clearly should have never been allowed while I was accused of whining, etc...etc...for the bike to win a Championship, then be ruled illegal for the class the very next year. Yes, Walter has a tough job deciding what's right and wrong for some of the classes, but sometimes it's ok to say no and sometimes it's a no brainer.

    To follow up on this. The Supermotards seemed to be a reasonable fit in the 500 classes at MSRH.

    I feel like 450cc singles in Motard trim will be the limit on what we will allow to run with the 500s though.

    Can you clarify which 500 classes the motards can enter? If I have a 1998 motard could I enter 500 classic, 500 ss, 500 sb, and 500gp?

    I would think all those classes besides superstock as the wheels are aftermarket I’m assuming?

    Sorry, I'm still not clear on this.

    Just want to confirm that a 2019 Husqvarna FS450 would be eligible to compete in 500 Superstock, as well as 500GP.

    In case of bike above, it has stock wheels as the FS450 is a factory built supermoto, which wouldn't be the case for most Supermoto bikes. In the thread, it was discussed that Supermoto would only be allowed in 500 Superbike, but there are some later posts talking about "500 classes". I'm not sure if the aftermarket wheels was the distinction here.

    For what it's worth, at MSRH, FS450 was about even with a stock Ninja 400 as far as straight line speed. It's likely the fastest stock supermoto you can buy without making it into a timebomb. The Ninja would pull a supermoto by the end of the MSRH straight, but were about the same up to the end - I'm guessing that's aerodynamics kicking in at that point, or a combination of a better air intake and aerodynamics.
