I'm personally unaware of such a bolt, Jeremy. However, I have good success turning the front wheel, and holding my drain pan up to the frame drain bolt. After the frame drains, I re-install the bolt, then move my drain pan under the crankcase. Using a 12mm socket, I break the engine drain bolt. Then I slowly loosen the bolt by hand, and support the bolt as the oil begins to flow through the hole in the skid plate, into the drain pan. After the oil flow slows down, I remove the bolt completely, and allow the rest of the oil to flow out of the engine. This method works very well for me, and doesn't create any mess when I change the oil.

Mosfet RR

I have been spending my time on the SuperHawk forum learning my new bike and one of the achiles heels of it was the R/R. I read of the zx6r r/r being an easy swap to alleviate the cooking of the stock nonmosfet r/r. This I did and have no probs.
Would this cheap r/r be a good swap onto the XR. They be cheap on ebay, but don't go running the prices up! It is a fhsomethingsomething16something I got for 35 bones.:spla t:sha rk:jomo mma:ostr ich:r ad :lo bbyi zave : sick:kbo om

The only one I've found is one on eBay. A fellow rider of mine bought one and after seeing it, it is really small.

A fellow inmate, lasercustoms, was making these for a while but I'm not sure he's around anymore. Every time I try to PM him, he doesn't reply.

I attached mine with JB Weld and then duct taped in on until the JB Weld Hardened. Lasted 2 years before I had to glue it on again.

the fram sure drain is what I was thinking of.



stays behind the case and keep the mess to the oil filter cover only now.

and what's the thread on the engine drain bolt? 12x1.25?

Here's a photograph of the stator cover saver I bought from forum member AKARob.



I attached the guard to my stator cover with JB Weld. If Rob is no longer selling these guards, you can make something similar from a small piece of aluminum plate.

Fellas,

I recently picked up a front end off a cfr250 (Thanks Marko!).

One thing I need is to retain the mounting points on the stock upper triple. So I am curious, can the OEM triples be machined out to accept the larger forks from the crf, without impacting the structural integrity of the triple?

This would save alot of hassle. If not I may have to put out the money on the Emig racing setup.

Thanks

Anyone up for chipping in to buy C-Dub a new camera? This crappy pictures of all this bling are killing me. He could be making a lot more money selling to rich GS tools (did I just say that? many aren't, a lot are though). Anyway, the only way he could make less money off parts is by selling to KLR riders (yes, I'm on a roll tonight).

No. Stock CRF triples are cheap of ebay. You can get some for less than $50. The emig stem is expensive(around $200). I have it, and it works well. RSW Racing also offers a nice setup, especially if you would like to keep the stock speedo and ignition switch. Steve has the full monty. /he'll post pictures of it shortly There are some machining the stock CRF stem options too.

Mendoteach,

Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify, I have the entire front end already (upper/lower triples, steering stem, forks, wheel/axle). I am trying to keep the swap over as easy as possible. So I was curious if I could keep the stock triples and machine them to accept the crf forks. I need the stock mounting points because I have a Lynx fairing on the bike, which I love and won't get rid of.

The only place I have to have is the two holes where the oem speedo bracket mounted to the triple. But I may be able to tap new holes in the crf triple to make it work.

I'll keep you posted.

You can not machine the stock triple to fit the crf forks. You can machine the crf stem to fit the xrl

The RSW triples have the factory speedo mount holes and ignition switch hole

Made my own and included a tether in case it ever popped off, the high temp silicone is holding so far.

Speaking of tethers, has anyone else had the kick stand spring go south? Last year a friend's did, and this fall mine did. I thought the first time was a fluke but perhaps not. I have been thinking about wiring mine. We didn't find his, so he leaned his bike against trees for four days. Safety wire to the rescue!

I squeeze the spring with pliers to make the spring fit tight on both ends.
