    I would like to know the same thing. I have the older tank w/o the shroud. I like the look of the newer CRF70 plastic and seat.

    While we are on the subject of swapping plastic, are CFR50 and CFR70 plastics interchangeable?

    No. Crf50 is smaller.









    And I want to know the same thing also. I was wondering if the tanks switch out so you can run crf shrouds?

    The gas tank will bolt on but the seat mount holders and side panal holders need to be moved.

    Yea if you have any questions as to exactly where to move those pieces, ask slowracer. If I remember correctly he was the one who told me how to do it in the first place.

    No crf50 plastic,tank,or seat fits the crf 70, if you want to change theres a 07 crf70 frame on ebay and thats the only good way to make the change.
    crf150R its not a mini but its not a full size either its just right!

    Re: xr 70 crf 70 conversion ?'s

    I tried lining up the crf plastics on my XR frame and it looked like a pain to do it all. I think the subrame is a lot wider on the XR which makes the process even more painful.



    BUT if you do the swap make sure and post some pics and do a write up because there is no pics/ info on here about it that I've seen.



    And personally I really like the looks of the older XR's even the one's with out the shrouds. I'd like to build one up with a bad motor, and sick suspension and go tear apart all the new bikes!

    Well I went and measured between my XR and CRF sub frames earlier right under the back of the seat at the same spot the XR sub frame is 7 1/2" wide and the CRF is 6" wide. So that will be a good task in it's own.



    Be sure and do a write up with lots of pics if you do it!
