Can we add OEM and general parts availability. I think this should be a very important factor in ones decision. I am not clear on what options there are for these bikes.



SSR parts:

Local Honda dealer? From what they say the SSR 150r will use CRF70 parts. Mostly aftermarket CRF parts, I would assume, since the bike is like a hopped-up CRF70. Do they mean aftermarket CRF70 parts are what work? SSR Motorsports has a very lack luster parts department, IMO. If you can go to the Honda dealer and Buy/Order parts you need, then the SSR parts department is not really needed, anyways. Maybe someone can clear this up for me.



Pitster Pro:

Most parts are proprietary? OEM parts only available through Pitster Pro or a PP dealer? Pitster's parts department is very elaborate (this is based on what is offered for the current X4 bikes). Easy to use OEM parts diagrams w/ prices. This is a huge benefit, IMO. Be careful of shipping costs, though. Shipping prices are very inflated. For example $15.05 shipping for very small items (a couple of bolts, a rotor, or a bracket, ect.). I think $15.05 is the starting point for even the smallest part. With their parts diagrams you can order anything big or small for your bike. Need Swingarm bearings, frame parts, or any other OEM part, big or small, you can just find it on the diagram and order away. Very simple.



These are my unbiased observations (not sure if all info is correct). From the pics both bikes look sweet, and do not have a dog in this fight. To me OEM basic parts are a very big deal. Parts diagrams are much easier then trying to describe some small part over the phone or through e-mail.

good post.





Could you give an example of something you would need from Honda OEM?




I am not sure. That is one of the questions I have. They say that the SSR will take crf70 parts. Are they just saying that the bike can use the same aftermarket parts that the CRF uses? I know about the CRF sprockets (which is a very cool idea), but what else could you get from your local Honda dealer, that would work for the bike? Something like bearings, maybe?

Well I know that crf70 forks will mount up, um plastics, seat, gas tank. And stuff. I know its a god thing for parts but OEM honda? Their stuff sucks. I mena think about it, I would rather buy a set of fastway pegs compared to stock oem hondas... See what I mean. Its nice but not for OEM stuff, just for aftermarket. Just look at the ttr's they came out and have nothing really to upgrade them. Am I making sense?

Hey I can pull some measurements on the LXR tomorrow afternoon we are meeting for some indoor Motarding and Pitster is bringing some LXR Motards up. Any other specs or details you want? I'll try and get them. Great thread btw

Seems like this is a comparison thread with specs that should also include features as well .The LXR also has these,

twin oil coolers(with roost deflectors), master cylinder guard, disc guard, caliper guard, case saver, frame guards,brake snake , shifter snake, forged kick start,wave rotors (220 mm front)

completely aluminum covered chain guide,Light weight hubs, aluminum wheels,a larger engine, air box, billet folding levers.



Can you add the SSRs features as well?

From this I gather "it takes CRF parts" means that if you go to order parts, order CRF aftermarket parts, correct?



As far as OEM goes, they might suck, but where do you get little odds and ends parts? SSR I suppose, over the phone/e-mail. If the forks bolt up, does that mean that Honda headset bearings will work?



CRF 70 parts that work for the SSR:

-Plastics

-Seat

-Gas tank

-Sprockets

-Aftermarket CRF70 parts

-Bearings? (headset? swingarm?, ect?)

-?



It's hard to convince the average Joe that parts for their bike will be available 2 years down the road, when there is no real parts diagrams to look at, or parts department. Now if this was a conventional motorcylce purchase (from a local dealer) this is no big deal. The dealer can show you a parts diagram you can point at. For internet purchases (w/ no local dealer) you need parts diagrams customers can look at and at least get a part # that they need. Maybe SSR diagrams are available through email?



Maybe someone can clear this up. Who do you contact down the road for SSR SR150r OEM parts? Do I just try to describe the part over the phone, or E-mail pics? Prices? Price quote over the phone?



I am not taking sides here, but if you want these bikes to be more streamline, ease of ordering parts is huge. Alot of people just getting into motorcycles my not know the proper nomenclature to order over the phone or through email. Having Diagrams w/ part #'s would make it easy. Even if you just had diagrams w/ part #'s, then email the # to SSR or a SSR dealer. That would probably work.

I guess to sum it up w/out getting too far off the original intent of this thread, with less opinion.



SSR SR150r parts availibility:



-SSR through phone or email

-SSR dealer through phone or email?

-Honda dealer (only very basic staple type parts. Gas tank, sprockets, plastics, ect.)

-Aftermarket companies that make parts for the CRF70 (Reeg, BBR? ect)



Pitsterpro LXR160 parts availablity:



-Pitsterpro web site (diagrams w/ part #'s, add to shopping cart function)

-Pitsterpro phone or email

-Pitsterpro dealers?

-Aftermarket companies for sprockets (PMP, ect?)

I have always had pretty good luck dealing with SSR's parts department, you just have to get ahold of the right person at SSR. But it would be nice to see some parts diagrams and part numbers, that would make things infinitely easier, especially for the higher end race bikes like the 150R.

I think you missed the point any part that will work on a crf70 OEM or Aftermarket will work on the 150r.This also goes for all crf50 aftermarket parts that we know will fit a crf70.

SSR has diagrams and part # for the complete bike,all dealers should have this.I will post it up when I get home tonight.

Also after the first of the year a 80 page owners manual is coming out.



The bike was designed to have all the parts replacable if needed.

Forks,swingarm,pegs,pegmount,plastics,sprockets,bearings,even the frame, can all be relaced with oem or aftermarket crf50/70 parts.

If you put a yx with crf50 ports or a honda motor, all crf70 pipes will fit.

Even if SSR went out of buisness you would still be able to repair and replace your 150r.
