Hey guys I have a 82 xr 500r. Im looking for a place other then my dealership to get parts for it. Does anyone know where I can get some new or slightly used plastics for one. I handed this bike down to my girlfriend when i got my drz400 and i want to fix it up a bit for her. Eventually I will upgrade her to a newer 250 but i figure fixing it up now cant hurt the resale. I was also wondering if I can go down to my salvage yard and get a front end off a newer bike to upgrade to disc brakes. I believe the 83 and up 600 had a disc brake. Are the steering stems the same dimensions. Thanks in advance to anyone who replys.
