What tranny combo's are you using?

This thread needs more pics! The CR is very cool!

Add a hydro clutch and leaky CS and no one would ever know it's Japanese heritage.
As for the cr5 It has a magura clutch already. No leaky cs though. looks more euro with a RFS kicker on it:


Not sure if you saw my thread on the cr5 conversion:http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=757835

as for the RFS hybrids, The transmissions are still up in the air. I have a few exc trans and one mxc sitting in boxes. I'll likely go with close 1-4 and wide 5-6 on the 555 and all close on the 637. I agree on the handling being related to the stroke. The 72mm's don't feel the same as the 60mm
