Jason is right....
do the BBR springs for awhile and make sure you like it before jumping into the big bucks...
I put a KX85 front end on mine (cut down a few inches) and ordered a rear shock out of Canada...can get expensive quick.

do you have 12" wheels on your XR? If so, did you do anything with the foot pegs? I just got 12" inch wheels and it seems it barely takes any lean at all for the pegs to drag.

I drag mine all the time, but it happens at just about the same time as I run outta rear tire.

We have 12s on our endurance bike, the combination of soft suspension and suspension that has too much travel will cause you to drag pegs.. that and poor body positioning. We had issues with our pegs dragging at one point and still do from time to time but solved most of it with suspension

Wassup, Nick!

I thought the suspension might be a contributing factor. Thanks for confirming, Rob.

Post up some pics and specs of your setup, I'm sure Jason and Vaughn can also help with more specifics
