I do not like the front fender though, but installing a CRF450 one fixed that.
I agree to a point. I know two European manufacturers (Monnier and Bitalia I think) make CRF style tanks for the XRR that take the CRF shrouds but they want CRAZY money for those things I even think the Acerbis Safari tank looks better than the stocker, it's just too much for the stripped down motard setup.

I changed out my front fender to the CRF style some time ago...not an exact XR red but close enough and looks way better than the floppy XRR fender. Rear fender will be going next.
