    1980 XL500S help

    I just picked up a 1980 XL500 in pretty good condition. Cleaned the carbs and she started right up. After riding for a few weeks I could feel the swingarm bearings starting to go and need to replace them. Does anyone know what years of the XL500 are grouped together when ordering parts? I can only find swingarm bearings for an 81 or 82. Are the 80, 81, and 82 basically the same bike? Also, does anyone know of a good site for parts?

    Crf 50 suspension help

    Do you know how much of an extension the staggs conventional forks have over the stock. 1" 2"? And do you know someone who has them. They look solid but you cant always go by looks.
  7. I have a crf 50 replica and it basically needs a whole new front end. Suspension, triplle clamps, bars and everything. Im not looking to spend much money but was wandering what the best solution would be for new suspension. I heard that crf 70 suspension with stiffer springs was good. Is it? Any other information would be appreciatted
