  1. Thanks! Let's just say it's a work in progress. Lol
  2. Here's mine. Owned it since new.
  3. Ran the valves and changed the oil. Ready to ride!
  4. I have the same fork setup and run an IMS tank. It really depends on where you placed your steering stops. I never put stops back on mine and it barely hits lock to lock. It's on the to do list tho.
  5. Pulled it out for summer.
  6. My 03' bought new.
  7. Spent a lot of time in the desert when we lived in California (we now live in Oregon) and more time in the Sierra's on the XR. As for the cruiser, it's got a 5.3 from an 03 chevy pickup. It's sprung-over on 37's. Still a TON of work to do. And yes that is the goal, taking the cruiser to the trail head with the XR!!
  8. Thanks!! The FJ40 is a work in progress!!
  9. Dusted it off and took a pic. Wife bought it for me new in 2003 as a wedding present (after I sold my 71 Chevelle to help fund the honeymoon). Finished the XR about 4 years ago. Stock bore, Mukini pumper, full exhaust, USD conversion with full MCS suspension, and excels. I love this bike!!
  10. You can order the Buchannon spoke kit for about $60.00 from www.motosport.com. I just laced up a new set of wheels with them, they're awesome!!
  11. Another vote for saving your money for USD fork conversion. The difference is unbelievable. I had the suspension revalved for enduro riding and will never look back!! Good luck!!
  12. I appreciate the comments!!! At first I was just gonna rework my stock forks until I saw "rockjockey's" bike. If you havent seen his bike yet, look for it, it's sweet. After asking a few questions I found out this swap is super easy. The clamps I have are off an 06 crf 450, They mount right up and the only thing you have to do is have the factory steering stops machined off as the will interere with the oil cooler. You have a couple options for the steering stem: Modify the crf stem to except the xr bearings and top nut or contact Gary @ emigracing.com and for $150 he makes a stem for the conversion. The only other thing you have to do is fabricate new steering stops. I havent made new stops yet because my lower clamp bolts hit my desert tank. I am still working on a solution for that. If you'd like some more details I can send you a pm.
  13. Front end is off an 04 crf 250/450. Scored most parts off ebay and a few friends. I havent had time to work out all the details yet with the suspension. The back may be sitting low as I have not yet set my sag or figured out exactly how far up in the clamps the forks should be. Had everything revalved and cant wait to do some riding. We're going to Charles Place, (Mojave) during presidents weekend. Thanks for the comments!!
  14. Finished lacing up my wheels last week and got the fork conversion finished. Cant wait to do some riding!!
  15. MCS suspension, Bakersfield,Ca. Quick turn around and set me up perfect. Awesome guy to deal with!!
