Depends on who you ask. Some people would say nothing. The CR/F forks have 1.2" more travel, they don't flex as much (good or bad depending on who you ask) and the complete CR/F front end is about 3lbs lighter than the stock XR parts. Follow the link I posted to the thread on TT and I included a lot of links to other relevant discussions about this swap. Search a little and you'll find a lot of information (and a lot of BS) about this swap.
