I use the tusk kits in my 250R.  Never had any issues with them and they last for as long YOU want them to.  If you ride it like a 125, yeah, it will be a 1 hour clutch.   If you ride it like an XR should be ridden (no clutch, and lug it) you shouldn't have any trouble and you should be able to save you some money.

Got a picture today,

Ill skip the ebc clutch kit, might go barnett kevlar had one in a zx12r that held up well under alot of drag racing.

Going to do eibach .47 fork springs with stack mod vs crf forks.

Needs a kill switch.

Gotta wait 21 days to bring it home (state pawn laws)

Illl do the suspension, and get the sag set first.

Then plastics.

Ride the hell out of it while I collect parts to do a rebuild on engine.
