Joe I know the gs wheels are a common xr swap to get supermoto tires on for cheap money vs. custom spokes.

A lot of the guys who do it end up having to take about 1/4-1/2" off of the caliper carrier, this lets the wheel shift to right so you can line up the cogs. The rear end is all bolted together so I can't get a good measurement for you next time I take apart if I have to I'll snag a measurement for ya. The wheels came with the bike and a box of parts I'm not sure where some of the stuff came from I just made it work, I believe my carrier is a gs500 thru-axle mount unit and I didn't have to do any work to it, I did have to add an adjustable mount to the swinger so it doesn't flop around.

I want to say the common and easier way is to use the xr caliper carrier that slots into the inside of the swinger (which I shaved off), and thats what I think causes wheel mis-alignment. Don't quote me on that I'm going off memory from several months ago and I have trouble remembering what I made for breakfast some days unless I write it down.

Cool info.  Thanks!  I never thought about machining the caliper carrier down.  Now I have another avenue to pursue to see if I can get it all lined up.  Can't wait to see your finished product.  That thing's gonna be light and nimble!

Progress is slow this week while I've been working on a customers ar80 resto. but there is some none the less. Finally got the battery box done primed and painted with the triples today. With any luck I'll be able to wire it next week and get started on the carb/custom exhaust.

Side note if any one in central mass needs really good paint and resto work let me know.

I've been getting the wiring and switch gear sorted. Also had to make a a new throttle slide since I'm using an odd size 2 stroke carb to fit my intake boot. Ordered some electrical bits and waiting on exhaust tubing now.
