hey admin, do you know what the actual individual letters stand for (if anything)? instead of just what the set of letters means.

Mr. Edmunds did not point out an exact meaning for the exact letter.

Not real sure about the XL/XR meanings, but back in the day the CR stood for "close ratio" (gearbox), and then there was WR "wide ratio".
But that was way back when I rode Husqvarna's.
I think the CR in the Honda line-up stands for the same.
But back then Honda's MX bikes were Elsinore's.
Getting off topic here, sorry.
