Hi Christian,

Was just wondering if the steering stops work for you.

Steering Stops

The steering stops didn't work for me so I welded one on. Right below the wiring harness loop. This is on my XR600 but the same as the XRL with CRF triples

Mine is coming along... Just have not had a chance to even look at the bike, been super busy with work. I am aiming to have it all together this weekend so that I can start riding it!

Cheers,

hey I posted on your thread

you just need to hammer the lock washer flat, enlarge the hole and align it so the tab sits back like stock

then when the top clamp is on you can lift up the tab

basically stock the lock washer is not big enough to be able to flip up so it rests uneven on the actual lock nut.

so just do that and you be golden

good luck!

I made spacer bushings for both sides of the XR axle. I also had to space the brake caliper over with a few washers between the caliper mount and the fork. It did work, but was a hassle to assemble. I bought a proper CRF wheel soon after.

What is everyone doing about the too-long CRF forks? They're nearly an inch longer than the XR forks.

^^^^^yuppers

play with them...go up and down and see what works best in dirt...

for example put the forks 2 inches from top...you will notice it turns like a beast carves almost too well!

but at speed you will wobble like crazy

the push them up all the way flush and it will be choppered out and smooth on the highway but it will suck even more than the stock forks when it comes to turning

this is commonly caused "pushing"

if you cant find a happy medium then you need to look at correct springs for your wieght and usds forks...

cheers
