I'm no mathemagician, but I believe the latter versions of the CR80 have shrouds on both sides. I also believe this is Bold New Graphics, rather than actual changes in the frame from prior years, so you may be able to get a tank and shrouds from a later version of the CR80 and just bolt it right on.

Have a nice day.

Oh now I get it! The '02 has the single shroud because of the single radiator! Easy fix but a '03 or newer tank and shroud kit. You'll still only have one radiator but no biggie.

CR80 stuff will fit the expert, as the only difference betwixt them has to do with suspension and wheels.

and yes, you will probably need a seat with the tank and shrouds.

thanks for all of your help guys and i apreciate it, but i guess that it really doesn't matter what your bike looks like so long as you can ride it well.

Thanks,
Pete

If you dont have a radiator to hook it to, that thing will bend back to your knee at high speed. Just ride the bike, and dont look at the side without a shroud. Or you could just get a 125.

The CR80's only have a left side radiator. Prior to '03 they had a funky left side only shroud. A "false" shroud was added to the '03's and up so it "looked" correct.
