The Stockholm Karting Center in Cokato is opening up to Supermotards this summer! They don't have a lot of details yet, but it looks like it's a go!!

Visit their website here. (Has an annoying start-up sound, be ready!) and specifically here

Stockholm had a display with a KTM 450/525 sitting there that is how I found out about racing there.

Re: New track for Motards in Minnesota!! (dvo1)

I'll have to check it out.

I had heard rumors that they were going to run supermoto, it's good to see that it will happen. Do you know any more info? Are they running a race series, trackdays, or both?

Re: New track for Motards in Minnesota!! (Dave)

After Dan told me about the track, I fired off an email asking if they did open practice and allowed supermotos but I haven't heard back from them yet. On the other hand, I've added a lot rules to my email program. A lot of rules....

Re: New track for Motards in Minnesota!! (dvo1)

Dirt section? That means jumps and woops. Owch. Got word yesterday that my back guy thinks my L3 should get fused (my L4 and L5 are already fused) but wants me to grin and bear the pain until the technique for disk replacement is worked out to avoid another draconian fusion. Anyway, jumps scare this aging moto-squid these days.

I'd run it, just really slow. Anyway, I put a call into Tim at DSC to learn more about the series.

Dan, your XR isn't that loud is it? Or am I just thinking that it isn't loud 'cause I run ear plugs?

Re: New track for Motards in Minnesota!! (dvo1)

But what is it at 50 ft., Dan? Basically what is going on is your bike cannot be louder than a 125 shifter cart to satisfy the city council.

Anyway, I just got off the phone with Tim from DSC. Bikes need to have catch cans for drips on the radiators and cards and all oil covers and drain plugs need to be safety wired. No big deal. Aparently, they're going to have track monkeys selling tires and doing safety wiring if you need it.

Gear wise they were pretty open because some guys are still choosing to run motocross gear.

It's not set in stone yet but the first date is look like May 14 or 15th, the second date June 10th or 11th.

I'm out at DCTC on May fifteenth but I may be able to make the June date baring any unforeseen issues.

I know it is louder then a kart.

I am not worried about the bike being to loud it first has to run again.

You still have the top end off of your XR engine, Dan? Did you send out the head to get ported or something?

I sent it to the best tuning shop there is and they don't keep a very tight schedule so it could be a while.

Re: New track for Motards in Minnesota!! (dvo1)

I'm sorry to here that. You could buy the local Husky shop's demo SM450R for a song if spring comes and your bike still looks like an exploded parts diagram.

Eric, I saw that 450 a couple weeks ago. Any idea what the asking price is?

Paul told me he needs $4500 for it which all things considered sounds like a very good deal to me.
