Hi there ! Empty Same bike?

Post  mamacone on Mon Mar 23, 2009 5:24 pm

Are all these pictures the same bike? If so do you switch the front brake calipersr when going from super moto to dirt? Or what do you have that lets you run the different rotors? Great looking bike.

Hi, yes always the same bike a 2003 XR 650R.

for the dirt (only when I go to Africa, one time a year or less) I use the original fork with original brake system, when I switch to supermoto version I use a complete Upside down fork with Brembo caliper, carbon tube, and Brembo radial master cylinder a OEM shorter shock, and a lot lot lot of other parts..

Now for our european woods I own also a '08 Beta RR 450

But I really like the shroud graphics on the bottom or last photograph. Any idea what they are, or who sells them?

Hey,

It looks like some of that plastic isn't stock either! What are you up to there? I think American Honda needs your help.

I assumed the aluminum was a part of the sticker. The rear fender looks CRish, and the front looks KTMish. I did notice the shrouds but assumed it was a trick of the graphics.

Well done.

Love the bike bow rider

How much for a rear fender? I have a 97-99 CR rear that I was going to use but it points up to much and the red is not the same. I may ask my father to give me a hand and make a fiberglass one, he's a retired autobody man.

What about those polished frame guards?

And is that a different front brake bar setup in the last photograph?

Thanks,

the polished frame guards are from CRD a france company, but that items are no longer available

in the last photograph the brake setup is a brembo radial master cylinder (16x18) and a brembo 4P caliper (from a '99 Ducati Monster 600)
the fork is a 46mm Paioli Kayaba from a VOR

Precision Concepts sells the 1X radiator guards. I use them and like them. They're a good price too. I can help you get them shipped if you want to.
