I know, I know..........a little update is desperately needed.

New job, two kids, two dogs, wife, extended family, etc..... They all seem to keep me out of the garage where my heart wants me to be.

I finally had a chance out go out and play yesterday, after probably four months of inactivity.

After mapping out the peg, seat, and bar relationship on about six different "adventure" bikes, I had a better idea where I wanted the pegs to be on the XR900R. I wanted them low and a bit forward so they'll be good on long trips yet comfortable for riding while standing up. Decided to use a set of CR250 peg mounting brackets as they're proven, available, and they'll allow me to move them if I have to.







Also, in order to give my legs a bit more room and simply for aesthetic reasons, I tilted the side plates in. This will give my calves room and also adds quite a bit of strength to the frame.





Like my rear shock?

Also, just bought a set of Big Blocks and can't wait to get them on.

Neat.

Will you be able to keep the pipes inside of the frame/skid plate?

Where are you putting the radiator? Tail mounted?
