Very nice, Well Done!!, the space between the top of the rear tire and the fender looks a little weird, how does it handle?

Default 150/80 on rear of xr1000... new wheels tires and brakes

cause i needed new rubber and I had the wheels/tires/brakes leftover from another project

150/80 K591S rear on 16x3.5 DNA Rim
100/90 K591S front on 19z2.15 DNA rim
H-D (sunstar) semi floating rotors all round

also solid mounts for the bar risers... much better

front is bolt on
rear needs the funky xr-1000 captured seal/spacers replaced with std 1.25x0.75 bits
you also need to make a new wire lower chain guard or go without (i will bend one up and mount it to the swing arm spool rather than the axle

you will have to follow the link to see pics as I am not allowed to post pics..

No permission required to post pics - but you do need to HOST the pictures on another pic site (photobucket, etc.), then insert the [IMG] code into your posting here...

Or, track down the address of your pictures hosted on the Google site and use the Picture Icon here to create the [IMG] code you need... Like this:
