    Ahh flattrack. Full throttle then pitch it sideways. I did that once at Loudon in the FCB class. If I remember right it was followed by alot of bent parts.

    I like the saying as it reminded me of some times on the my old 88 TZ250.

    I heard at one time that an XR750 is a totally different beast from a standard Sportster ...different cases, cylinders, crank, everything.

    the cases are because the cylinders are too small to fit to a conventional XL bottom end. Not sure if it has a roller crank like the KRs do or if it uses the same crank. XLs are all 900s or 1000, the XR is 750 (and then 1000 for a short while), hence why the cylinders are smaller.

    The more I think about it the more I think you might be right that it doesn't share anything in common with the XL other than the engine mounts.
