Hi, new to site , ive got an XCR 2000, got it second hand, ive done a bit to it, now got idrive prob, ill throw pics up of prob, got to get complete bearing kit, bushes for fox float and dog bone, was a bit daunting at first to take repairs on myself, but looked at photos on here and the pdf , so went and did it, thought it may be a bit of a jack in the box job , but went smoothly , the bearing cups are seized to the idrive barrel so im working on getting them off without damage, ive only found 1 place where they sell bearing and bush kits, does anyone of anywhere I can get them ? ok catch yo later Steve

Cheers for that, , is the kit from betd a complete one, ? I have problems for some reason with paypal so the US ones would be hard for me to get, ive got some maintenance to do on barrel and chamber on frame, the photos tell all !! anyway, ive got time now, I bought a s/h GT Timberland to get around on, 2001 model, only done about 500m according to owner, hes had it from new, got all the reciepts manuals and that, anyway,back to XCR, got to rebush the fox float, I think the pivot is ok, I had the casette, chain and bb renewed , one of bb lock nuts got damaged taking crankarm off, so may have to get a new bb now, as well as this im doing some work on a rockhopper, nice bike that , anyway any advice and im all ears ! or eyes !! Seeya Steve

You could mail them and see if they would take a card payment or something like that?

Betd is all here, not strictly a full kit but one could be bought in more bits i guess? (Though full bearing units/cups etc.).

Right I am going to undertake a restoration of my brothers xcr4000 which will involve possibly stripping the idrive. I may alsoget the frame stripped and coated in which case it will have to come out

Hi everybody, I am about to buy my unicorn : a GT STS XCR 2000, size L !

But I am a little bit suspicious about this disc caliper position, don't you ?

I would be very concerned as they never came with a disc mount on this frame

I would be worried about what damage welding the disc tab onto the rear end has caused

(There is a genuine rear end on eBay for one of these atm £35 and I can help with shipping to u )
