XL500R. New plastic?

Recommended Posts

Hi.. has anyone switched out their tank,seat,fenders etc for newer designs? What fits? I doubt the frames changed all that much model to model year to year, or have they?

The frames changed considerably between models ,,least the mounting holes for the bits have as have seat designs, tank designs and sidecovers..Only thing I can tell you for sure is CR250 XR600 front guards bolt right up..maybe need a spacer or two to avoid hitting the exhaust..Rear guard you could possibly use an XR600 one and I'm fairly sure you can use a CR one but the shapes just all wrong with the CR to me. Way to straight. Both would need work to fit..ie hacking. Pretty much anything else from other models won't work on an XL500 without kinda thinking of new ways to hold them ..some stuff like Tanks/Seats just won't interchange at all due to frame shape .I've tried a few as I own an 82 XL500-R. What I've tried includes,,, RFVC XR/XL600/500,,all bits and XL/XR250..all bits
