Kronos,...slightly more than a kg - good. i thought there was nothing else, after the exhaust, that could be reduced much. I will take off the indicators (it is not likely, here, that the police notice,) but i need the 60/55W headlight. I had thought of adding auxiliary LED lights, but then i realised that if i do that, and the ZETA bash plate, and a rack, the best i could do is try to keep it from becoming more than the original weight. :-s

Big fender washer. File the sharp side smooth.
I have heard that the small spark plugs break easily, so i want to take mine out and put Loctite Anti-seize (the silver/aluminium type).

Yes, me too. Just looks wrong. I've decided on the Zeta CX (7/8"), MX124, i think it is - pretty much the same as the OEM, just slightly less "sweep". I'm just waiting for Wheeling Cycle to get stock of the Zeta front sprocket cover so i can order them together.

Check the Zeta Racing website

...there is a HANDLEBAR SIMULATOR that lets you select the CRF250L OEM handlebar and then one of the Zeta bars, and shows you graphically, beautifully, with all the measurements, what the differences are.
