As I now have the mod bug and want to see what I can do to improve my bike, I now have more questions than ever and my searches seem fruitless. Parts seem very limited at best and I love my bike too much to sell and go for another bike. Plated bikes (in CA = gold ticket for now) seem hard to find or expensive and the newer the bike the more motor maintenance they seem to require. Something about the XR being just down right reliable. On my wish list: XRs Only skid plate 250r header and new pipe (may just go all new XRs Only) 280 kit when motor needs the rebuild (who has the most reliable kit) Suspension work Questions running through my brain: Can I put an XR4 or CRF450x front end including wheel on my bike? or Should I rebuild the OEM forks 1st to be stiffer? On the XR250L I have whats called cushion drive. Can I goto a fixed sprocket hub? Would a newer XR400 rear hub work? Am I looking at problems with a fixed sprocket and the tranny?
