okay I run a 450R in the GNCC and the midsouth, and can honestly say i miss my 2 stroke. But i dont know the way to go about building the bike should i buy a stock framed bike and build from there. or should i buy the frme etc i want and start there? so the next qustion is link no link or cr500 but by my reading no link is the xc wy to go, but is roll and laeger the only no link people who made frames? What about engine alopt seem to have run the 265 power valve? is the duncan a good motor for this? if not what, please dont flame i wasnt around when the R's were popular. if there are pages i dont mind reading to find the anwsers i just need pointed in the right direction. also the laeger frames on ebay are still over 1500 anyways any help is pprecited
thanks
Brandon

leager made a lot of cr 500 link frames. the biggest plus for no link in XC seems to be the extra ground clearance. but it can be a difficult suspension to tune. i think either of the 3 can be made to work fine, whatever you can find a deal on. if you can find a straight stock frame in good condition you can gusset it up and itll be pretty strong. for a little extra money it seems you can usually find a good deal on an aftermarket frame though. i would go bigger than a 265 for XC too. 310 or 330. your not as limited on displacement take advantage of that. there are a few guys on here who currently race XC on R's hopefully thell weigh in with some tips. depending on what your budget is make sure you get a quality suspension. dont blow all your cash on a tricked engine, and nifty bolt ons and cut corners on the suspension.

I think you are better off to find a complete quad rather than build it from scratch. The little things will add up in a hurry like OEM rubber grommets, nuts and bolts, etc. You can find good deals on R's these days. Some of our members have had some really sweet quads for sale.

roll R's are beautiful. i can imagine its hard to pass up. thats like the holy grail of 250R's
I went to Atco MX in Atco, NJ a couple of weekends ago. There was a guy there with a complete Roll/Custom Axis/Duncan R. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Nicest R I've ever seen in person, and maybe even ever. Polished, chromed, fresh PC. Nice, nice, nice. Not to mention it had a 340PV.
