96 cr500 usd conversion on xr400 help please?

Recommended Posts

I have a 96 cr 500 complete front-end & will be converting my xr400 to usd with it. The problem I'm having is I have located the bearing through allballsracing.com & they ahev the shim to. But they don't know what size shims I wil need & where to place them. Does anyone know this info. so I can order the bearing & shims? Thank you for your help.

You might need to experiment with the number of shims to get the thickness right, but you can get them from McMaster-Carr. Measure the ID of the bearings and get shims with the same or slightly larger ID.

Alex at All-Balls can sell you what you need... as now he sends a few spacers/shims with each bearing.

I just ordered my second set of bearings, as I'm doing another USD conversion tomorrow for an '03 XR400... with CRF forks. I bought the bike (recently), and am reselling it since I just got laid off. (I don't need two XR400s!)

BTW, Alex rocks!!
