Hello fello forumers.. I'm new to here. This is my first post! I have a Honda '04 XR250R that is in need of a steering stabilizer and unfortunately I have my heart set on ohlins (I think there is an off the shelf scott damper available). I've been researching what I'd need to do in order to fit the ohlins damper. I'm planning on doing long trips touring the Victorian Alps in Australia. Along with the braided lines I have already put on, I think a damper will transform the already fantastic XR. Can anyone give me any input on this plan: I want to install an '04 CRF250R stem and retain my XR tripples. The '04 CRF250R bearings are the same OD as the XR ones so they all drop straight into the frame. The CRF bearings are 12 mm deep instead of 15mm which is fine. I'll machine the ID of the top and bottom XR tripples to accomodate the larger stem and run a tap down the thread to bring it lower. The CRF stem is physically longer to accomodate the thicker CRF top tripple so I'd need to do this to ensure I have enough thread protruding above my top XR tripple. The ohlins catalog lists the 2.1 damper kit split into CRF25R '07 to '09 as one kit number and '10 to '12 as another. I need to figure out what the difference is. I am almost positive it will be a small difference in the bracket that replaces the washer on top of the top bearing. Once that is figured out, it should all bolt up just fine. Let me know what you all think..
