Looks like a lot of guys are ditch the 100 front forks in favor of KX 80/85 forks to get a better suspension and disc brake up front.

I was pointed to TK Race Products for the conversion kit:
http://www.tkraceproducts.com/produc...306/TK0306.htm


Someone who has provided me with parts and invaluable information over the past couple of years is Cam at MM Racing.

His website: http://www.mmracing.biz/

Check out the first page. He has a mini series he runs based entirely off the XR/CRF100. Tons of good info on the site and you can email Cam for more particulars. He's always provided me with excellent customer service.

thanks for the info.. will check it out...
at the moment I am leaning toward buying a new one, the price of a new one compared to what I am finding on craiglist is not too much different... unless I could find one that someone has already made the mods to...
just want to know for sure how much I am looking at spending in mods before I pull the trigger...

A 16" XR80 front wheel, BT45 Bridgestones front and rear and some stiffer fork and shock springs will be plenty to get started. That shouldn't be much more than $300.

I don't know of a direct bolt-on disk front end so you'll have to play with the steering stem or bearings. I have YZ80 forks but I'm not sure what it took to mount it. The 17" wheel setup to run GP slicks will run you about $600-$700 by the time you get rims, spokes, tubes and some takeoff tires. There may be some set up race bikes for sale now that CMRA and TMGP are done for the season.

We used to run a CR80 front end with a scooter tire (Michelin Gazelle) and a rear slick on our Team No Redline Essay bike. We did pretty well in endurance thanks to a ringer on the team. Started off with running 16 inch Ninja 250 tires, then modded it later as we progressed and were sure we were going to stick with it.

Obed,

My 2006 CRF100F in the classifieds already has heavy weight springs, you could just add tires and run it to get started, then add the front end, etc as you go along. If your interested, let me know. I may have it at GSS Sunday if you want to check it out. It's much cheaper than new and almost as good as new.

I wouldnt buy a new one, you can find a deal(under 1k) unless you want it now.....

Staton has one for a good deal, already has BBR HD springs front and rear, I have seen the bike and its a clean bike and a steal for the price and condition its in!!

if your doing a budget the 16's are the way to go

otherwise you can put a cr85/kx85 frontend and it will give you disc brakes and usd forks...

PM me info, or tell me at GSS. If the CRF doesn't sell, I may convert it myself for some TMGP love.

Well, there's been no interest in my CRF, so it may happen for next year. I'd love to be a rolling roadblock for other's passing drills.

Send info on front ends if anyone has a lead.

I like the idea of a disc front end.
