RT Cartridge Emulators w/ stock fork springs
Cogent Dynamics MOAB Adventure rear shock

Well I finally have a new front end comming to me. Still have a bit of research to do, and I know there's gonna be some fabricating to be done, but....

A YZ426F front end will soon be taking over the duties out front.

I am worried about getting the speedo drive to work, may have to go to a Vapor system... Then there is the little itty bitty front brake system on the YZ, have to figure out a larger diameter rotor for the front, then fab up some kind of spacer for the pistons....

BUT, I am FREAKING EXCITED!!

This is gonna be fun....

Have a local shop doing the job (I am not a fabricator) so I can trust the work... Hmmm, mounting the front fairing, that might be fun as well.....

Any of you fabricators have tips, let me know. I'll try and document the process (probably here, as I don't think it warrants its own thread) just to show off a bit.....

Thanks! Is there a link or a description that you could provide? Is it a kit?

Any info is appreciated. I want this to go as painlessly and easily as possible.

Yes TOM (AKA. holycaveman) Did the work for me. I bought a used set of tripples off a KLR and sent him both sets KLX and KLR and he has his machine shop do the work...

I really didn't do a write up because I am pretty lazy... was pretty streight forward as you know..

The work was excellent and turned out really well... As for preformance........ and I am like the whole time I am riding it.

will probably get some new spring for the front that are better suited for my weight at some point.

Waiting for my MOAB shock to get done and shipped......
