    So some updates.

    About 2 mths ago added some new bars handguards and pegz.

    Pegs would have to be the best upgrade out of those. More confidence now standing up.

    Finally getting round to the crf conversion. Bearings for the headstock on the way. Hoping the japanese bearings coming from China r legit. Pricing up a hub as we speak but might just see how the xr fits first. Needs different bearings to start with the axle difference but it will be interesting to see how the brakes system all lines up.

    After hunting around for crf450 talon hub prices and finding it pretty expensive I got some help through the advrider xr650 thread. Someone who has done a conversion used a kit from Evolution motorcycles. So after a couple of Emails got a 2 kits on the way for $150 which is a third of the cost of a new hub let alone spokes and getting the tyre on and off. Pretty stoked. Hopefully all goes together well.

    If your interested Robert is clearing them out for $40 at the moment.

    What exactly does the kit do? I've always considered the crf front end.

    Its some sleeves that go round the xr axle to give it the same dimesions as the crf axle. I think there is a little bit of shimming involved with the caliper or disc. From what was said on adv something like 2mm so not bad at all. Not sure about spacers but I will see when it arrives.

    Yeah there is nothing specific on the site GSX you have to email the guy. Not sure what other stuff he might do. Its kinda like tales around the campfire but hey its often the way with older kit stuff. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone in the know.
