O.K, thanks. I looked at the listing and the guy didn't say. I am not sure which one I want to do first (front or rear) but I pretty much want to update my bike. Here's another question. Was it worth it? I move my bike a lot, and pushing it really sucks, it feels really heavy and feels like I am pushing or dragging the rear tire along the ground, and when I push my bro's bike, it is soo easy. It is really easy. That is another reason to switch...plus replacing drums sucks
I'd wager that a fork swap is cheaper and easier than a swingarm swap especially if you can get a somewhat fresh CR500 for $300. It cost me about $40 in machining to reduce the CR500's stem.
Not rolling freely is a sign of something not right. If you think your drum is dragging one of you can pivot the rear tire off the ground on the swingarm while the other one rolls the rear wheel.
As simple as it may be, check your air pressures. Low tires makes it hard to roll a bike.
