DW, actually that's a pretty good price, usally they run $225.00 US each from most mail order places.

Here they are (on sale) at $224.00, if you can get a pair for $400 thats a good deal.

Levers

According to Scott they ran the OEM brake lever. You have the correct clutch perch. The thing to remember about the bikes is there was no real "factory" bike. As such one race they may run the JMB rear caliper, another might be OEM. The NV races they used the HRC piston, the others a decked version. Campbell liked floating front roters and Hengeveld did not. So, in other words there are multiple versions of the 1X bike you could build.

Thanks jbrown, I had yet to hear about the history of the rear caliper coming off the JMB CR500 bike. I am also beginning to realise that there are several variants of the same Baja bike, which I guess makes the build a bit easier if I can't get my hands on a few of the parts!

I usually stay on the sidelines, but posting that is just dumb.

I did your search as you suggested and got 29,700 hits. Sounds impressive, eh?

And then I did the same search substituting Baja Design and returned 236,000 hits.

So your lesson today: if you can't be civil, at least try not to look stupid.

Shock spring swap

Changed my rear spring in about an hour! Not bad for a rookie. Definitely the best way to get the shock out is to remove the main subframe bolt and pivot the whole subframe down and back, then pull the shock out the top. Thanks to whoever recommended that method (can't find the thread).

Heat shield?

It seems like people are very positive about the Giant Loop Mojavi bags. I was wondering if any of you feel that it is necessary to use their heat shield in order to keep the right side plastic from being damaged by leaning too closely or against the stock muffler.

I don't know about the stock muffler, but I didn't need one with an aftermarket one (Moriwaki one trip, FMF Ti second trip). I mounted the bags so they were far enough forward to no put a lot of pressure on the sidepanels.

Got a T4 and use the shield.
More important I think, you get this shield with the GL bags... why not use it?
It fits well and does the job, and mine sits invisible under the panel.

i used a link of chain and a hose clamp on the frame, and attatched the bags to the chain link on the xrr. i use the same setup on the crf. looks kinda rigged, but it works to keep the nylon strap away from the heat of the exhaust.

Once again, 32,000 KM's of strapping that strap around the frame and not a single issue. Everything from Moab, Baja, Mexico, Latin America, and back the CDT (plus traffic in your home town with 44 degree heat (celcius)).

Not an issue. That's also with the thinner, ultra hot Powerbomb header and FMF Powercore 4 pipe.

Combine that with my buddies XRR with 8000 KM's of doing this you have 40,000 KM's of trouble free operation.
