Quick question, does anyone know what paint spray can (manufacturer and paint code) works best to recoat/match a 1998 xr subframe? Thanks! Mario
If your frame is "shasta white" rustoleum white is a pretty good match. I've used it on 1990-1999 bike and you can't see the difference.
And yeah, there's many times when I've ridden a XR250 and kept up with people on faster bikes. I used to ride with a guy on a XR600 (that was probably faster than a 525) all the time. He could loose me in easy sections, but I'd catch up as soon as we hit the tight single track.
