Lots of very ugly bikes out there, but if it does what you want then I am sure it will grow on you. Cannot say that KTM are not ugly ducklings their looks take some getting used to, but if the rides good who cares. ........................:041:

Over the years on here their have been one or two modded bike
S with influence from the RR and i’ve Seen several specials built but the deciding factor with modern day stuff is getting your head around the ECU,is what your proposing possible? Most certainly,straight forward? I doubt it.

Always nice to have a bike that’s making money as opposed to loosing it  :002:

Hi Speedy,

The stitching is black.  Covering is a carbon fiber look in vinyl.

I'm 6-1 about 225 ...

Hey Gary,

What are your dimensions - I'm 5'11" 165lbs.  Is the stitching red, I can't tell from the pics?  I assume it's not leather, right?

I tried to buy a seat from Laam a couple of years ago for a different bike, but he ended up being a total jerk, so I unwound the deal.  But his seats are supposed to be good.

You may find the loom is short in some areas, but you have the most important bit covered - you keep the heated grips!

Is there any difference to the traction control, that isnt catered for in the loom?

You might have to hang on a bit tighter on the XR, though.  :028:

   I don't want to bash it either but I do prefer the slender sleek look of the current incarnation to be honest. No doubt it will be a good ride.

Just a quick point about the SW motech frame sliders and crash bars.

I had their frame sliders and they do look great.  I decided I needed/wanted a bit more coverage so I switched to the bars.  The good news is that the bars and the frame slider use the exact same engine crossbar (same part number), so once the cross bar is in place, you can pretty easily switch between the frame sliders and bars. 

doubt this will impact too many, but it was helpful to me.

Seeking some counsel from the masses.

I currently have three running motorcycles. A race-only ‘16 RR, a street-only ‘16 XR, and a crashed but fully functional ‘17 RR.

My question: How much madness would it be to swap one of the RR motors into the XR frame? Assuming I swapped the ECU, Cluster, Ignition, etc. All  bikes have the heated grips, cruise, and no DDC.

I’m assuming the loom might be a bit different, along with the potential for losing the wonder wheel function. I can live without it.

Perceived Pros:
1. 200hp
2. 200 F#*%%? HP
2. That’s all

Perceived cons:
1. Potential nightmare of a swap
2. Shift in tractable powerband (will have to regear)
3. Likely need an ecu reprogram to address function

Am I missing anything else? Is it worth it?

You don’t see many CB-X these days - without scaffolding spoiling the look of the engine !
