I guess you had the same type of issue because you had to 'face' some of the stock DL bracket. I'm gonna give it a try, thanks for taking the time to post this mod and full instructions.
Flatfender - here's another picture that I've also added to my post. Notice how the caliper mounting plate bolts to the adapter. It sits on top of it - that's why I shaved the crap and bumps off of the back of it and drilled the threads out of the holes. If you decide to copy this you'll need to shorten the lower 10mm button head by about 2mm to ensure that it doesn't hit the heads of the rotor mounting bolts.

You were clear I just wrote it out wrong, it should have read "Oh okay, the DL has a similar diameter rotor so you're just mounting the caliper not changing its distance from the center of the axle." Which is what I thought was needed but this picture makes everything all clear on what you did and how you did it.

I'm going to call CRFStuff.com tomorrow and talk to them about their caliper bracket for a 280mm rotor for the CRF forks, if they make one for the earlier forks then it should bolt up to the XR forks.

This bracket is $88



$17 for the pins

Put up some pics if it all bolts together - but then there's always gonna' be some stubborn old fart like me that simply can't be dissuaded from turning $300 in time and materials into something inferior to a beautiful off-the-shelf product that could have been acquired for a third the price.

Normally that's me, I spent two weeks of spare time making a rear rack using a blow torch and tubing filled with sand. When it was done it was so ugly I had to throw it in a lake ..... sometimes it costs more to be cheap.

Sure, I ran 3 new 12ga wires +/- on the battery and 1 to the frame ground under the seat for the relays. Fused the + after it came out under the triple, then split it and the ground into 2. Both positives go the the relays, and the grounds go to the lights. I used the stock Bl/W and BK wires for my switched 12v for the relay. I used two bosch 4 pin relays from a BMW. The hi beam relay 12v out is also on a spade connector, so I can quickly change it over to a cig lighter or any other things I add later.

The lights are one standard KC 6" spot currently with a 130w bulb, but I have a 100w on order. The lo beam is a Hella projector from a 90's bmw, I had to cut out the back of the bucket to fit the projector all the way through. It is running a 9006 51w right now, which I'll probably change out to a 55w. 181w plus the taillight is definitely to much for the stock output, I should be good at around 155w though since I don't have to run turn signals in the great state of arizona.

Also added a little backlit voltage gauge I had laying around the garage..I wish they would have just made the L's with back up kick starts. I spent like $40 on the whole project, so thats
