CRF forks are longer than the OE XRL forks. I had to raise mine so I could even get on the dam thing what with a +1" seat and a 606 rear tire.

My forks are raised in the trees as well, May just need to go higher... RealBigMan has a link to swap, so that is on the way.

I just checked my wheel again, and the rear sprocket is a 43... No wonder it's so tall! I've ordered a Moose 14t XRR front and will swap a wheel with a 46 rear. I'll report results!

Thanks John , it's been about 2 yr ordeal .


And to AZTom and whomever else is wondering about the seat concepts products .

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I'm prolly the Heaviest rider in this group ,

bout 3 and a 1/4 on a good day .


I can honestly say the S C seats provide way more comfort and support than OE .

On the street I would be in some kind of pain after 45mins to an hour and since the seat swap that time has at least tripled .



Thats a big ole something right there









The painsavers .

Not a HF fan. So much of the stuff that they carry is junk!. The fact that they have a good return policy is good. I use them as a source for zip ties and shrink wrap tubing, but not much else. I did buy a lug nut impact socket from them one time. It works well... but how can you screw that up?
