  2. Thanks for the tip Chuck, will do..
  3. Just finished my budget suspension conversion on my '82 XR200R , thanks to the great advice I found up here. I used a '84 CR fork and front wheel/brake from a $100.00 basket case I found on craigslist, and put a '82 XR250 rear shock (a half inch longer, heavier spring) that got off a rolling chassis purchased our local dirt bike wrecker for $60.00. Everything bolted on, just needed to add about 3/4 inch of spacers to the headtube cause the CR had a longer steer tube. The bike now feels great under my 250 pound weight. Both fork and rear shock are working well, looking forward to leaving the bike with our local suspension tuner this winter for fresh oil and tuning.
