450R axle and I used the same warp 9 brake bracket that came with the wheels. Oh and I had to modify that thing to hold the pickup for the vapor.

My honda parts guy said it was plug and play with the vapors and the warp 9 wheels. He uses dem xr stock hubs, & dont know chit.

Yeah, uhh.... I knew that. Maybe. I love that Emig stuff, it's all shiny and . First you have to buy the triples, then the forks, then the front wheel, then the brakes......it turns out to be a very expensive conversion.

What should I do about my rear shock, what do you suggest? I would like to take the bike to someone that could tune the shocks to my weight and riding style. That is without charging me 100 bucks an hour.
I have only ridden it around the block a few times since the new forks were installed. The front seems a lil heavier due to what I think the front tire being moved forward a inch or two.

Hmm I just might be out there, Ive never been to one of them events with the bike. I took my bike offroad a few times when it was all stock, it showed me quite a few times that it was not the nimble xr200 that many people think it is.

Bring your $$ for custom machined spacers and lower brake line bracket to hold the brake line away from your rotor. Yours will be easier because your running the stock hub.
My warp 9 rotor does not give as much room as OEM.

Definately going to safety wire the axel pinch bolts. As soon as I set the forks where I want them and everything is good. Breaks, exhaust and all the msc brackets are off to the coating shop.

Gtown6fiddyl, you going to get on board or what??

Hey! I've got a Husqvarna te 610 super moto conversion. The fuel injection is great. No problems here. It is kinda for sale too.

Sorry to thread Jack. Sweet looking set up.
