    What do you want to know? I can read all the names of the bike bits, but the rest of what they did is self-explanatory I think ... the rest is just a ride report of the day the photos were taken ...

    Gravel heat wheel is YZ standard 2.15-19 with Dunlop D707 110/90-19

    The picture in the middle of the motard, above the OE TL, was the design concept. Specs for the TL.

    What I can gather from the main article body on page 7 ...
    It seems the guy saw the TL in a scrap yard and got thinking about making a 'tard. People said he was an big idiot, but he had the assistance of 3 friends so he went for it.
    The style is very lovely (wank wank) and with the YZ parts they got a long stroke suspension. The seat is lovely too (typical Japanese crap journalism - I'm surprised they didn't ask him what he wanted to be when he grew up ) and it seems the seat hieght is 100cm.
    Can't understand the last paragraph ...

    The main article is a ride report of the 3 days racing, it would seem, including the problems in handling and how they tried to sort it. But it was fun
    They mention 0.8kg/mm springs in the front and 8-9kg/mm spring on the shock - maybe their reccomendations?
    They want to sell the bike for 1,000,000yen (about USS$10,000 these days) ...

    Keep in mind that I can't converse fully with kids at elementary school unless I'm fully aware of what they're talking about I'm looking at the kanji and stuff I do understand and making guesses ...

    And here is thought I was just the tardiest of them all trying to do this. Not to far off for a stab in the dark so I can have a desert toy. Here is where I am at so far. Had some spare TLR parts laying around and picked up a YZ front end. I had the TL spindle pressed into the YZ triples allowing it to bolt on. As for the rear... this is where its starts to get a bit complicated and show my tardiness. Keep in mind I am in Southern California and the bike is primarily for sand dune use and is a dakar(ish) project, so I am calling it. The rear end is starting with a streched TLR swingarm using a Banshee rear shock. Looking for a 5.5" GSXR wheel for a 150/70/17 dual sport and having SKAT TRAK make me a paddle out of a 190/55/17 for the dunes. The bodywork plan is to stop in to AIRTECH since they are local and try to fit up a KTM enduro type bodywork. Sorry for the big tease but the swingarm is out at the fabricator and I just had a lowside on my daily so that is turning into a racebike rebuild... Did I meantion I am a little tardy?? lol I will get picks as soon as I can, could be a couple months as I am not rushing my fabricator at all. I am looking at april(ish) for a completion time.

    MX bike with big heavy engine in = CRAP!

    If you want a supermoto with loads of power then buy a husaberg FS650 the things wheelie off the power in 4th gear! I would know this as I had one shortly before getting the TLR as I fancied doing some mileage again.

    Trying to ride a moto with over 100bhp and nearly 90ftlbs of torque would just be silly, would handle really badly on the dirt too imo
