Welcome. Nice bike. It's too clean, but it's nice. Post the "after' pics when you're done.

Thatīs not a job for the bush mechanic, thatīs for sure. Not worth it.
Iīll be fitting some forks on mine but a machinist will do the job like itīs meant to be made, not slapped in a hurry.

We only have 2 wheels, if one fails...

I agree...I preffer and will take this to the grave that a stock xr stem is just as strong when pressed into the cr clamps as the cr stem would be...

in my case at least...I opted for this out of necessuty but then really though hard and found this to be my preffered method or buy the emig conversion stem if you have the $$$

I do beleive that turning down a stem is less desirable than the other options...

however we all have options...

I have the usd swap thread if anybody is interested or needs ideas....

I hate to see people get hurt from a failed mod. Some mods can be like natural selection I've found out....

I've been trolling a couple of CRF250L threads. One is how to lower your CRF250L for free... It leaves you with 9" of front and 9.5" of rear suspenion travel with slighty less then 8" of ground clearance???

Thats like posting "How to do Faceplants for Free".

Worse yet is other inmates did the mod without knowing about the lack of ground clearance.

I'm having some fun getting flamed for pointing it out.

It's a good reminder to do your research first.

cheers mental!

jejeje i saw that but did not comment

the only thing I agreed on was if an old lady is riding the bike to the store there is no way she will bottom out! jajaja

thats the thing mods are for people not bikes...we do the mods WE feel necessary...

however some dumbasses dont get it and still do mods knowing it might bite them in the ass later

cheers boss

thatīs mean, but oh so true.

Iīm all for the tinkering and moding for free or cheap, but thereīs a few things that I reserve for the pros with the right tools. A steering stem is one of them, as is dogbones or extreme linkage modification. I think the one youīre talking about is one of them.
Ok, they might get A result in lowering the bike but probably, and due to the contruction of the linkages themselves, itīs more than asked for. 8" for an off road machine is way too low.
