XR650 forks, I guess, are 46mm. RD's have 43mm.

I guess that this can come as regular fun for me when I will have both 17" SuMo wheels.

Nice Boots My contribution to the German economy

The 650 triples that I found do not have the steering stem, just the upper and lower plates. I have a CR500 complete triple and I thought the stem from this could be pressed into the 650 lower plate to make it complete

Some have used XR650L forks while others have used XR650R forks. There is a difference between the two XR's.

Thanks for your input guys I am going to look for the 650L forks and forget trying to switch the stems.

Jeff: This bike look familiar

Spring, when a man's fancy turns to ridin and camping.
Nice setup there Showkey.
I have been busy as well making ready




TA givi screen on a DRZ headlight shroud.
I'm running the Wolfman Beta bag in the rear. It is a perfect fit on the TA.
Inside are a weeks worth of clothes, sleeping bag, tent, sleeping pad and kermit chair and basic camping stuff.
Aerostich tank panniers up front for the heavy stuff.
The tiny tank is the Acerbis 1.6 gallon, just the right size and can be found pretty cheaply.

Tool tubes are next up.
