That looks a lot like the CDI given to me by a fellow inmate. Mine was made in Argentina and supposedly has a raised rev limit. It wasn't working on his bike for some reason and I haven't tried it on mine yet. If it works, I'll keep it as a spare. If it doesn't, I'll depot it and see what's inside.

Has anyone here tried the DC Plastics repro fenders and stuff on their 83-87's?
If so, how did you like it compared to the real deal?
TIA, KD

Nice ,

Tell us more about which swingarm, shock, and linkage you used for this upgrade. How did you deal with alignment and offset of the frame mounting points?

How ya doin' GM?

The swingarm and brake assembly are all XR650L. The swingarm being an '07 and the brake stuff from a '93. The linkage is the stock XL600 pieces. The shock is '88 XR600.
The stock XL shock would work but I wanted something with a little more adjustment.
It's all bolt-on. I'll need to make a spacer for the left side of the linkage where it bolts to the swingarm and also one for the left side of the top shock mount.
I'm gonna fab up a longer reservoir hose and mount it back where the tool kit box normally is on the back left frame tube.

Do you happen to know if it makes any difference how the reservoir is mounted? It's mounted vertically stock (as you know) but I'll need to mount it horizontally.

You didn't ask but the front end is '93 CR500. Just had to swap out the steering stem from an '84 CR500 because of the lower bearing diameter.

Doing good Bruce, and really enjoyed riding my bikes earlier this year before the snows hit. Now I'm gearing up to do some more mods. One of which is switch out the steel swingarm for aluminum.

I've got a swingarm from a 87 dual carb XR6 and I've been trying to think of how to keep the newer linkage that has the needle bearings. I was wondering how you handled that, and I see and you kept the stock XL link with the solid bushings. So you're going to fab a spacer and forgo the stack of washers

I don't think I can use the newer link parts without relocating the dogbone mount by removing and rewelding on the frame. I might do that, but haven't made up my mind yet. I also have a White Bros aluminum swingarm and it fits using the stock 84 link parts, but its heavier than the 87 Honda swingarm. It also needs a special rear axle, something between the stock XR and the longer XL. With either of my aluminum swingarms I have to make modifications to get it working

The external reservoir on the 84 XR5 is mounted horizontally on my frames where the XL has the oil/air separator located. Mine looks a lot like the 88 in your photo, but I understand that the newer shocks have more adjustment points. So I'll leave open the possibility that mounting position matters with yours, but I doubt it.

There is much confusion about which 'newer' forks to swap in. I'd like to keep the front wheel and use the stock brake caliper for a fork swap. But I'm not sure if the CR500 forks were the best performing versions of the upside downs. Did you have to change the steering stops to use these 93 CR5 forks?

I did not have to change the steering stops.

Regarding the stem swap. I forgot to mention that a fabricated bushing was required due to the smaller diameter '84 stem and larger '93 lower clamp.
