Sorry for the long post. Ultimately the big XR kicked ass and too me to 18th overall out of 180 riders and Thad Duvall took the overall.
For the shock install a revalved and resprung(if you need it) XRL shock

XRL shocks have bigger pistons slightly than xrr shocks...they also come woth a tad hogher spring rate cause of the extra heft of the xrl weight...also by revalving it for racing or aggressive riding like I did, it eliminates the bad shimming that xrl shocks have from the factory, they have too many compression and rebound shims making flow bad...

in any case the revalved XRL shock on my 1988 xr6 works awesome in fact it made more of a difference than USD fors upfront because of the traction and control improvements...
night and day

cheers

I have pics if you want...

local bike shop found a couple of second hand ones in a box out back of the shop
might have to wait a couple of months till i catch up with the over spending at Xmas so lucky for me he's putting one aside till then
The hard part is getting an airbox adaptor set up. I had to make my own. Also, I got a set of crf throttle cables and throttle. Makes install a load easier.

Other than wheel axle diameter, how does the newer type XR (cartridge? ) fork compare to the old type?

does the newer type have any tuning abilities? My old type fork only has bleeders on top..

HAY YOU GUISE!!! I want to regear to 15t 45t. The bike is plated. What brand of Drive sprockets and rear sprockets do you guys prefer? I read somewhere in past threads that some chew up the splines or something. Do you know how long the chain has to be with these gears? You think 15/45 is tall enough for the highway? Tell me what to buy. .

old style vs. new style forks!

aja!

read my thread bud!

basucally you have the old style which is damper rod only, and can only be adjusted for compression on the bottom...it works fine

newer style cartridge again has bottom compression adjustemnt only however the damping style has a cartridge "ROD" however its a very basic shimless type pretty much where the rod goes into a valve on the bottom with different sized holes that can be "revalved"

the only discernable and quite pleasing attribute the newer style forks have against the old style forks is that of withstandind SHARP EDGED HITS better...this because the cartridge rod does a better job of bleeding off oil pressure than the damper rod on the 90 and lower year forks

so in other words there is no physical benefit other that that of better valving action at speed against for example sharp rocks...

with a brace and respring and playing around with oil weights I got my cartridge forks to work pretty damn well, really good actually, what I still hated was that every crash or tipover the damn forks still twsited and bent like spaghuetti even with the fork brace, and that made me even more mad as after a crash with the brace unless you loosened everythying up you now had fork BINDING

very bad!

thats my cents

lastly the bleeders are just that...play with fork springs and weights equally with the two styles, also the compression screws on the bottom work quite well...especially if you have the cotrrect weight oil in there...5w for new style 10w for old style...dexron 6 atf works the best for fork oil

smart man my friend

oem is the only way to go upfront...in the rear whatever...

the xr6 does not suffer as much from the shaft stripping common to xr650ls(weight and street use is what damages them vs dirt only xr6 riding)...however having said this using non brand front sprockets that are HARDENED and have a thinner shaft spline area is what damages otherwise good condition countershafts
