    Welcome in from Connecticut, your XR looks like it could go anywhere you want it to!
    Remus has a good rep, but some are prone to cracking.
    nice bike you have, although you look a little young to be driving it
    Regards

    Hi XRLuke, I can hear your Aussie accent from here, which is Melbourne!

    Congrats from me, John, on buying a fine looking XR, you're right, they are awesome and that's why we're here. We love them and want them to be treasured and looked after. If you go to the "Advanced Search" box at the top right hand corner of the page and insert whatever term you want to investigate, eg. Remus, you'll find so many references and mentions of the word your head will spin. This option is an excellent way to research almost any aspect of the XR you could imagine. Stick around and feel free to ask anything you can't pin down that way. Where are you from in this wide brown land?

    J.

    Nice XR Luke! Welcome to The Worldwide XR Forum from sunny SoCal! As Roy said, the Remus seems to be a good exhaust if you don't have an issue with cracking.

    Welcome from Canada, very nicely done bike.
    And I thought I had trouble reaching the ground.

    Hi,the REMUS is very light and sounds great.Your Frt Fork looks a little saggy,maybe some new springs are the cure.The BPF Fork is not for Off Road use for a longer time.
    The Frt Axle looks like beeng forced in by a Hammer?.When remove the Frt wheel for a new Tire keep in Mind to remove alle Ridges by a sharp knive bevore.The Axle must go in easily by Hand.

    Welcome Xrluke. The BPF are the big piston forks than came on the later “X” models. Your bike has those and the X rear shocks as well. Red rat, I think the forks looking “saggy” is an illusion caused by the off road style seal savers. The front fender looks to have been raised for some extra rock clearance. Probably a good idea.
    Have fun with her.
