I had an old Nelson-Rigg magnetic tank bag kicking around that's to small for my FJR, tried it on my CRF. Bingo! Big enough to hold some useful stuff. Small enough to not get in the way standing on the pegs.

My old Joe Rocket Manta fits and sticks nicely but it is very small.

Gloves, wallet, cellphone, water bottle, and it's full

Fork oil type and amount for service

Hello,
I am new to this site and have had this 250L since March (in Thailand). I was wondering if anyone has located a service manual for it yet? I have had leaking fork seals since almost new and had a friend bring me some new seals back from the states. I would like to service the forks and replace the seals but am hesitant to try without a service manual. Even stock parts are almost non existent here. Mine is made in Thailand and customer support sucks. I tried Honda in Japan but they keep referring me to Honda of Thailand. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

This might help a bit. Would Honda Big Wing in BKK not assist you? I'd like to get hold of a service manual too.

Been out again, and I think I want a bashplate. I don't find the seat too uncomfortable, though I haven't done more than 200km on it yet in a day (yesterday about 60km in maybe two hours).

Anyways, is there any video up with a CRF 250 L and FMF Q4 exhaust, to check what it sounds like?

Ricochet ATV Armour is your friend in regards to the bashplate. Best Dual Sport Bikes have a video on their site in regards to the Q4 pipe.

Just lift it off, real easy.

Go here: http://rickramsey.net/CRF250L.htm

On the introduction page (link above takes you there) about 2/3rds of the way down you'll find info on service manual etc.

Thanks Rick for taking the considerable time to post lot's of great info on this bike along with the work you've done !!

Custom Filter Installed on Bike

One more pic of the filter installed on the bike. If you click on the pic it will take you to my photobucket page where you can view the full pic and use the zoom feature if you would like. I have not found a better was to post pics off my camera onto the forum. So if anyone has a better suggestion, please let me know. I did add an aditional bead of siliconearound the edges of the outside of the filter to add a bit more confidence in the filter. I had also ordered an additional stock filter prior to cutting up the one I had, just in case things went wrong, I would still have a filter to use. Overall I am happy with the way the filter turned out. I thought it was quite entertaining for someone to assume I photoshopped the filter, just did not anticipate that one. What would be in that for me? Besides I am not that good with a computer. I came up with an idea due to lack of an aftermarket filter, I tried it, and then shared my results. That's what forums are for. I may be a Noob to this site, but I have had Motorcycles and ATVs for the the past 25 yrs. I always find myself taking things appart to see how they work or to "improve" them . Sometimes it works in my favor and sometimes I end up creating a lot more work for myself. I have put 1000 miles on my CRF in the last two months, mostly riding in the desert of Utah and Arizona. I have really enjoyed the bike and the mods I have made have really opened the bike up. FYI the bulk foam from Uni was about $12 and came with enough foam to cover this filter area about four times, so plenty.
