Which crf front end is it DW, and does it include wheel, caliper etc, or triple clamps?

Any rear wheels with Cush hub?

Thanks Sean-0.

D/W selling up ..why so mate do tell .....sounds like some good parts available boys

nice rally fairing and a crf front end ...and here's me all cashed out coz i spent it on my house ..dam it
Reader being where it is I can feel it, pendulum effect, the steering wants to fall to the side, if that makes sense.

I will mount it off the cross bar next time, and lay the fairing back a bit to give more of angle.

What application/situation
I like 15/45 gearing...however...it doesn't offer a whole lot of engine brake. on long down hills it gets brake fade pretty bad. I also like to corner with a little extra trail.
I was reading some where about some you bute thing some one did for some baja weapon . I think it entailed a larger rear rotor and accompanying caliper.
I came across a few 2 bangers a month or so ago in bellthorpe and quizzed them about how much fun it must be doing big down hills with no engine brake and they all had aftermarket additional reservoirs.
some thing like this maybe

The Baja team used a Jean Michel Bayle Cr500 works rear calliper because the stocker was prone to overheating in the desert with the heat and sand friction. The calliper had cooling fins built into the top of it to aid air flow.

JMB used this in MX because he was notorious for trailing the rear brake and so Team Honda developed the 'finned oversized calliper'. It was never sold and there is only one known of in existence, but the theory remains and many small road bikes have finned callipers that could be adapted with a bit of machining.

In my opinion though, unless you have a lazy right foot or a badly adjusted brake lever Digga, you shouldn't be getting fade with trail riding. I did a tight woods enduro in the UK in summer,which was a killer on brakes and the stock XR650R brakes never faded at all.

Id be keen on a mod for the rear brake fade. I tend to drag the rear a fair bit, but didnt realize to what extent untill with a bit of extra weight on and trying to maintain higher overall pace on the apc ride. It took about 2 days retraining to stop the rear boiling constantly, just so id have something when it was really needed. As for the front, well that was mostly useless the whole way. A good lesson. Haven't sorted it yet, bit broke right now.
I think the 240 dia rear is big enough so extra cooling and capacity might be the answer.

Another cooling option

Digga I found this, they say it fits the CR250 which I think has the same brake calliper:
