Where's the Conversion sticky?

Recommended Posts

I haven't visited this forum in a while, but I just bought another XR 80 so here I am again. Let me just say that this is the most fun forum that I have been to. There's never a dull moment with all of the imaginations in full force.

I'm going through millions of threads trying to find out what parts I can rob off of other bikes to build up my suspension. It's baffling trying to sift through all of the threads and posts. It would be a Godsend for someone to write up all of their knowledge in one place. Other XR guru's could add to it and we could end up with a XR80 Masterpiece Sticky! I could name 4 or 5 guru's that I remember from a while back that would be ideal for this project. Can I get some back up here? I know that I'm not alone. How about starting a thread devoted solely to modding a XR80 or XR100 since the two are so similar? All of the parts that can interchange or parts that need slight customization to fit. :banana:

I started work'n a Sticky thread a while back! Covering all the most commonly asked question posted- over and over here, as well as, trouble shooting, parts compatibility between the two models (which-actually is posted on here some where), big bore kits, carbs, and how to's. Unfortunately, I lost the wind in my sail -with it- if ya know what I mean...

A conversion STICKY would also be perfect and a great addition!

This forums past mod was a XR100 guru and also was a active posting member here. I know Mr. Hamp is active in some of the other forums, personaly haven't seen him post here. As we know- sticky's are up to the mods. I'm sure he lurks to make sure none of us XR 80/100 goufballs are out of line. lol

Save your searches, I'm sure more than a few of us would be more than happy to lend a hand in compiling some info for this forum. This is the "original pitbike forum" and is the last play bike forum- to have sticky :banana:

Count me in! And Feel free to PM me, to shoot a few spit balls around lol

Gman, you, socalxr and minifig phil are three of the gurus I had in mind for the compilation of the brains. If you guys somehow combined all of your knowledge into a single thread, you would make the world a better place.

Ron Hamp is an engine builder. I know he builds Honda engines for racers and is experimenting with stuff a lot. It's been a while since I've seen what he's been up to. I didn't know he was the new play bike moderator though. Hopefully he will see this and help out on forming a sticky for the people.

Thanks guys for sharing your know how and answering the same questions numerous times. :banana:
