Give me a break, I've been away fighting cancer. I should add that I've beaten it. However, this doesn't take away from the fact that you should be ridding your Big 6 not shooting pictures of it!

about $350...

complete forks $200
wheel $75

assorted bits like bearings, axle spacers and seals another $50 or so...

If id sell my xr stuff I now have 2 pairs of conventional forks, and new excel wheel on my xr hub Id make money...thing is nobody wants that stuff down here and shipping is too expensive to ship overseas.

cheers

Christian, nice work as always.

Taco, they machine a spacer to limit travel, and relocate the spring seat. Factory Connection did it the first time, this time I had Precision Concepts do it for an XR250 that i am putting on right now....

Brian,

I was hoping you'd chime in to tell just how you did yours. I couldn't remember exactly. So you're putting USD's on an xr250?

Quick question

Elsalvadorklr, How do your steering stops align with the 2002 CR250 Triple clamps? I hear different years align better than others.

I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on some clamps now and get them to fit, then get the forks this summer time frame.

I will use the CR250 stem and have it turned down, then deal with the extra stem length when I cross that bridge (if it's an issue).

Do you know if the '05 CR250 forks use the same caliper as the XR600/650? If not I'll do some more digging in the weeks to come,

hey bluff Steve is the one who told me that 2002 ish or up to that year you dont need a caliper extension or bracket...its the same mount and hence the same caliper pretty much...also those years or around those years have no issues with the steering stops

I mean they are perfect! If you want you could probably shave a little of the aluminum on the bottom clamp but you might get into problems if you have a big tank, etc...

what DOES change are the cr crf master cylinders and can be made to work...

all I can reccomend is to get showa TWIN chamber usds which are way better than normal older style usds...

the stem length issues was because I THOUGHT the xr stem(what I used and dont need to turn down anything) was slightly shorter, it might be, but not enough to need to shave down my washers and locknuts etc...like I did originally

in any case let us know...its really easy if you stick with honda oem parts...or oem factory showa stuff etc...

When I installed the USD forks on my XR600 I dry fit the forks and tank to check how the stops would work. The forks were hitting the larger Clarke tank so I welded some stops on the frame and ground them down so the forks would stop just before hitting the tank. Look at the bottom, side of the head tube below the wiring harness loop and you'll see the block I welded on.



The other side,
