  1. Changing the counter (front) sprocket is a better option. Then you will have a simple swap without chain modification if you ever decide to road ride it more. Have you considered the 520 upgrade?
  2. I'm considering the same swap for my '93. Are the triples from an '86 xt600 a straight bolt-up? Also considered USD's from something newer. Recommendations (other than get a different bike) and insights are welcomed. Background story: Already upgraded to a DRZ400S, but when I went to sell the xt I couldn't bring myself to part with such a solid bike for the $1000 I was being offered. Has less than 10k miles so I decided to fix it up. So far I've upgraded to 520 chain for ~$100 and a wicked headlight and fairing (real CFRP) with windscreen for $200 (ebay). Clarke tank ($190 shipped) and UNI filter ($15) also on their way. Willing to put in another 5-600 for suspension/chassis upgrades, just need guidance... Interested in a good swap out for the monoshock as well.
