Well finally got the steering head stem bearings in and done. New black fork boots and factory effex graphics (which I am not real happy about the fit of them. no word back from the company. I emailed them about the whole deal).

But until I get red fenders, here is it:

old, stock look:

matt, let us know how your graphics hold up
my stock ones finally had to come off,
they were looking really bad. every xr i have
seen with aftermarket graphics either they
start to fall off after awhile, or the
white part turn a pukey brown color.
i ended up going back to the stock taillight,
i couldnt keep a bulb from vibrating loose
in the baja kit one, i got a brakelight kit
for the stock taillight from baja.
i also pulled the blinkers back off
the back ones broke.
so much for the $400 baja kit

yeah, I am looking at the new Baja Designs headlight for the bike. I am thinking of changing the fenders and headlight to red plastic. Plus the new headlight looks more like the stocker with the bottom part to space it up a bit.

I agree with the white tank/plastic! Looks nice when new, but yellows very fast! I light sanding takes most of it off.

So far so good on the rear light. It has held up well for me. Last hard ride was 2 days straight in tight woods with ruts that were 2 foot deep in the uphill section! I fell more times then when I learned to ride when I was 8. ugh! But I would like to go back to the stocker with the taillight setup.

They have a lot of those parts.

Then in the front, I was going to get some of those dual sport guards with the blinkers in there.

If I had only known what I know now! That applies to the baja kit for sure!

I have the same graffix kit w/ seat cover on my 98XR400. It's holding up great. The seat cover is scratched on the inside (it was that way when I bought it)but that's all that's wrong. What problem are you having with yours? Something I should look at? Here's a link to a picture of my bike, since I don't know how to put it in my message.
