    hey yo, sign on your aim and it will be easier to explain, haha
    um it wasn't that difficult, but i had to make my headset bearings custom b/c no company will make a bearing w/ the inside and outside diameters i needed b/c the tolerances are SOOOOOOOOO close that every one says it wil fry, but their only steering head bearings, they move like 3 inches or something you know, its not like their being used for a wheel bearing or something. other than that i needed to make my braket for the 320mm rotor come off of the yz bracket in stead of the standard XR one that alot of people just buy a braket for and bolt it on, lol

    I dont ever use it any more, forgot my password... But wouldnt it be easier to use CR forks? Seems like the bearings would be the closer to the same size. I want a SM so bad, my friend had the Suzuki SM400 for a while and it was a blast to ride. Ive rode motocross my whole life so getting on that and brake sliding into corners with my leg out on the street was pretty cool.

    yea i know, i've been racing motocross for 6 years and been riding for 13, so it just comes second nature to ride like a hooligan on the street:D, yea CR forks prolly would have been easier, b/c every one has done it and theres tons of write ups on it, but i had these forks and it really didn't take much once you think about it, it just took alot of thinking and inginuity , but now they are awesome, and not many other people can say thev've put these on there honda, haha

    True, true. So its a Yamhondama? I want to motard my 426 as soon as I get a new race bike, but who knows when that will be. The most expensive part is the wheelset. Im kind of hopeing that they drop a little in price since the supermoto thing is getting really popular.

    yea i snagged those wheels w/ front rotor, rear rotor, tires for $350. once you do once set of mag wheels it really isn't as hard anymore just b/c you know exactly what to look for. but spoked wheels are nice too:D, my next is hopefully gona be a WR450. now if i could just find one in my area for cheap i'd be all set, but for now its back to the K8 750:D,

    yea front end from a yamaha, cbr wheel set, cbr signal controls, buell taillight set-up, and yea, pretty much the frame is the only thing that is stock^_^:D besides some of the plastics
