Sumo pics

Its been a while since Ive posted on this site. Usually around the rc51 area but I caught the sumo bug last season. I raced a 2005 KTM 525 SMR last season and bought myself a 2012 ktm 450 SMR that Im currently building up for next year. I figured I would share a few photos.

The 525



In action



The 450

When it came home



Break in day



And as it sits now.



Should have it completely broken down and rebuilt by March at the latest.

I just finally replaced my 02 CRF450r(sold in 2010) with an 06 560 SMR. I'll post pics when i get it back together with the refreshed suspension.

Who did the suspension work? I blew out the rear shock on my 625 this past summer, and need to get it rebuilt.

I ride at Loudon. Its a little tough on the motors but a fun track. As for suspension work. I do my own. I work part time at a suspension shop.

Anyway got a few more parts in. Now Im just waiting on a set of triple clamps to start putting it all together.

I don't miss the big sportbikes on the track or the street. I have an 08 Aprilia SXV 550 for the street and a built to the hill 08 YZ 450 for a race motard. Nothing is stock on it but the frame















I feel the need the need for speed!
