  3. Did anyone else see that old mag post on this subject? Some dude put it up on the vintage forum. Anyway i want that rear end BAD. Where can i get one??? doubt they still make them. If anyone has one or knows maybe where i could find one, would love any help on getting my hands on one of these. I'm not going to sleep now till i find one, looks like a great upgrade!! Thanks
  4. I was thinking of picking up a motor to slowy go thru and bore. Do some nice head work to it, replace valves that type of thing. So i want to know the range of motors that will work for me and go directly in my 79 xr frame with no mods. 79' xr250 to what year ?? were motors the same. Also, just wondering will a xr500 motor go in my xr250? Were the 500's frame more heavy duty or do they share frames?

    Hey all you XL riders

    how do you know what front ends will swap over? I want a newer front end on my 79' xr250. That bike looks really good great job on the mx front end.

    Hey all you XL riders

    radial four valve combustion chamber RFVC my 79' has 4 valves so what the differnce in the 83's??
  12. I have this 79' honda xr250 that rips. I want to put a newer front end on it, from another xr or cr. The forks, triples, wheel the works. I use the bike mostly for trail riding and backcountry fishing. The 23'' front wheel and forks are kinda flexy, wanting to eliminate that. Does anyone know what honda (or any) front ends will swap over? then i would be able to start my new front end search. Any over ideas on mods would be helpful thanks.
  13. I have a 79' xr250 and wanted to put a newer xr250 front end on it. Does anyone know what year front ends will work? Shocks, triple clamps, whatever years will work. Thanks
