what's the difference between L and R frt end?

hi all,

didn't have any luck with a search........

anyboby know the differences between the L and R front end?

I have an L and there's guy in my area selling an R frt end and wheels and the one thing I do know is that there are more SuperMoto parts available for the R, including things like a big brake kit for the stock wheel/hub set, etc....... :thumbsup::thumbsup:

You are talking about the 600R?

no, sorry......650L and 650R........

The XR650R is a 46mm KYB w/ rebound and compression adjustability. It's a good fork.

The 650L is a 43mm air Showa. A real POS if you ask me and the weakest point on the L.

If you have a chance to replace the L front with an R, do it, this is a highly desirable upgrade, and what I would do if I could find an R front end. You will need the entire R triple tree and wheel assembly and it will be a straight bolt on.

BTW, hope your buddy doesn't find out that complete R front ends command about a grand on Ebay, this is a desirable upgrade, and believe it or not their are more than a few CRF450 guys who ride the desert and want the 46mm KYB conventionals in place of their Showa USD's.

thanks for the great info........and SHHHHH!!!! on the last point......he may post here!!!!! :thumbsup:

SCORE!!!!

just picked a complete frt end with wheel and tire and brakes and everything for an R....$300

the guy works at cycle gear and we looked up the steering stem bearings and he ended up saying that he thought that I would have to buy the CR500 bearings because they have the same ID as the R steering stem, but the compatible OD with my XR-L

anybody have any experience with swapping an L frt end for an R?

About 20 years in suspension improvement...while still maintaining the conventional style.

Good deal. I don't know about the bearings, the R triple clamps should bolt right on. If that's not the case, my project is going to be a bit ****ed up as well, but everyone I've talked too indicated the R triple clamp is a straight bolt on. Perhaps the L steering stem should be used with the R clamps????

Sweet deal. Think you can find another complete setup out there in CALI. Jeez that would be great if someone else wanted to get rid of one. I would buy it.
