Well guess what...? Santa came BACK and put some upgrades on my XR600R
All kidding aside I am thrilled about the new bike but you could never pry my XR600R from my cold dead hands ! NEVER !

Somehow I missed that one. Went back and found it. CR125 forks. Nice bike. I was thinking about possibly doing something similar. Not sure if it is worth the trouble just for trail riding. I used to have a 97 ATK 605DS with WP usd forks. That was a sweet set up.
I went ahead and did it. I bought some 1999 CR250R USD forks, and I am going to do the conversion. I have to find a triple clamp since they didn't come with one. Then a wheel and so on. I'm not in a hurry so time isn't a factor.

Here's my bike. It's a 96.
My list of mods are as follows.
01 cr 125 front end with Protaper top clamp
XR's only 630 engine /w stage 1 Hot Cam, ported and polished head with all new valves and retainers for the cam, Carillo rod and JE piston with 10:1 comp, barnett clutch
Wrapped Xr's only header, FMF Mega max muffler
All UFO plastic with CRF450 front and rear fenders
IMS 4.0 tank
Moose rear fender bag
IMS pro pegs
Trail tech Vapor
I noticed from a previous thread you were going to use 1999 CR250 forks, why did you change your mind? Are the 125's an eaiser conversion?

DaveySprocket , How's that pumper 41 fcr carb for your bike? I was thinking of getting one for my 600.
The carb is awesome. I have a couple of friends that are very talented motorcycle tuners and they both said the Keihin pumper was the only carb to consider. Unfortunately all the modifications went on the bike at the same time so I can not comment on just how much of a difference just the carb made. That being said, throttle response is instant and the power is amazing.
Do NOT purchase the carb from XR's Only. The statement that it comes pre-jetted for your mods and includes additional jets is complete crap. They also sent me the wrong throttle and the wrong throttle cable TWICE. Do yourself a huge favor and get it from sudco

When I got the fork from the guy I bought then from on ebay. I noticed when I pulled them apart to rebild they were 2 different year forks. So I went to the parts fiche and found my forks were different. The left for was from a 99 and the right was a 97. The insides were totally different. So I found another set for cheaper and from the same year bike. I have the old ones still if you know someone that could use them? But thats why I went with the 99 125. 125 and 250's were the same.

The upper and lower clamps that I got with the 98 set up was already done so when I got the 01 fork they fit into the 98 clamps with no problems at all. About the bushing, I had my buddy from work do them at work on hid free time in the machine shop. It took him 2 weeks to get them done because of the work load we have. I would think you could go to a local machine shop in your area if there is one and shouldn't cost to much. Or another option is go to www.emigracing.com and for $150 for the stem and $30 for the upper bushing. The only reason I went the route I did was because I didn't have the extra cash to buy the cool stuff.
