Engine building is pretty straight forward.

But changing front forks, brakes and things can get a bit complicated.

Not to mention expensive. I won't make my own brake cables. The two cables I bought last week (one brake, one clutch) set me back $450. I picked them up. No shipping in tat.

Discovered my simple XLR exhaust system won't work with my XR style clutch arm. No problems really I can just use the stock sprocket cover for now. New cable won't fit of course and I'll have to get a new one made for the stock sprocket cover.

Oh well. Cables plus the splitter cost me around $500.
