However, check out the latest purchase. This portable jump starter can start a V8 on its own (tested) but also can charge phones gps etc. Currently running my montana to see how long it lasts. $130.00
How many cranks did you get out of it Smithy on the old Clevo ?

Hey SEANO,

How did the steel subframe perform on your trip is there any thoughts of possibly selling a few?

Poppy is the bloke to speak to about the subframes GNP59. I can vouch for the build quality. Tightens the bike up nicely with a load or in the sand etc. The man is a genius.

Burkey, you have great taste in cars! 2 or 4 door? Colour? Pics? I am an XW / XY man. Love the XAs tho. Main '51 is cranky in XD Fairmont Ghia with top loader and detroit disk 9in. It's fun, but i only bought it as donor running gear car for XW Fairmont ive had for 12 years. The cops give me hell in it and is a real gas guzzler so I try to only use it once a week or so.

TGIF!

Yep speak to poppy but I don't think he's keen on doing anymore .....there time consuming and work out costly .....but like smithy said they tighten the bike up and work well .... I cartwheeled my bike on the dune's in the Simpson and didn't bend it ......

... the XR is the greatest off road motorcycle ever constructed. There's nothing it can't do, hasn't won or will not outperform.

CRF Fork Conversions

G'day Gents,

I've got a couple of questions about the 650R:

1. Do they have a steering lock, ie, that locks with the ignition key?

2. If Yes, have any of you with CRF Fork conversions been able to make up / modify the top triple clamp to get the steering to lock?


Apologies if this has already been covered.


Cheers,

Dan.

Dan the steering lock works via the head stem shaft on the XR650R so when you install it into the crf clamps it will still line up! I've had 5 XR650R's never had 1 with a steering lock key i modded the head stem shaft on mine current xr with crf front and filled the lock position hole so dust /water etc can't contaminate the bearings
