1982 XR/XL 500r

Hey guys I have a 82 xr 500r. Im looking for a place other then my dealership to get parts for it. Does anyone know where I can get some new or slightly used plastics for one. I handed this bike down to my girlfriend when i got my drz400 and i want to fix it up a bit for her. Eventually I will upgrade her to a newer 250 but i figure fixing it up now cant hurt the resale. I was also wondering if I can go down to my salvage yard and get a front end off a newer bike to upgrade to disc brakes. I believe the 83 and up 600 had a disc brake. Are the steering stems the same dimensions. Thanks in advance to anyone who replys.


Go to www.maier-mfg.com I got some side plastic for my 83 XR 500R through them and they are reasonable w/ thier prices.


I am looking for a rear chain guide for my '83 XR 500R. Cannot seem to find anything on the web, any suggestions on where to find this piece?
