Your front wheel will not work, it has to small of an axle/bearing size. Nor will the OE caliper mount up. It's all CR/CRF stuff. Ask me how I know. I just did it to mine...
I just checked out their website, and I'm not sure I understand. They provide the stem, which I would press into CR/CRF triple clamps? So you bought a donor set up, pressed out the old stem, pressed in the new one, and bolted it up?

CRF450R triples and stem machined down to fit into the XR bearings.

Not that hard to do and makes for a great bike
Thanks for the info. So basically the triple clamp, forks, wheel and brake are all off the donor bike? Did you change springs or valving, too?
