On another note, not looking forward to how dirty the XT is after it's been in a barn for almost a year with little riding.
It was 7 yrs ago but I think it was a straight swap. There was no grinding or machining required for sure. If you stick with Yamaha and measure bearing race inside and outside diameter, you can usually buy conversion kits for about $35.

I hope this helps.
