"Macinthailand... Thanks. I contacted Rick via email but when I looked up this site (the manual site) the only thing I found was a manual that had several types of Hondas info in it. I was hoping for one specific to the 250L. They do offer specific manuals for other Hondas just could not find one specific to the 250L."

At the bottom of the page that I sent you the link on is this:

"If manuals are not shown online, you can call 1-800-782-4356 and order them over the phone."

I am an idiot! Thanks. Jeez maybe someone should just order this for me because apparently I cannot read or follow simple directions!! LOL. I am a day ahead (12 hours actually) so I will order tonight my time. Probably take a month to get here too! Great info on this site Adventure riders site too. I have put this thing through hell and it is still taking care of business so everyone should be/will be impressed with the durability of these bikes!!

That is possibile too because when I got back from one ride my boot and engine case was covered in fork oil.
This came out of my manual it may be of by a half Oz plus or minus

And the type of fluid Honda used was ss-8 my forks were kinda spongy so I put 30 wt. In it. Most people claim it stiffins theme but it just slow the compresion down witch in return feels stiffer on quick fire roads

Changed the oil yesterday and reused the filter cover gasket as the dealer did not have any in stock.
Anybody else just reuse the gasket? It does not leak so I should be ok?

Hmm.
I think it will be ok then.
The main riding area is about an hour away, and once I'm there I can stay off road for the most part.

I'd like to be able to do DS rides like LA-Barstow-Vegas.

I guess worst comes to worst, I could always throw on a big bore kit seeing as one is in development.
But like I said, I enjoy the low price point and simplicity of this bike.
Even Honda says oil change every 8K miles!

Perfect! Exactly what I am looking for. Appreciate the help. Now off to the shop to locate some oil!

I made the small fairing out of fibreglass. Keeps the wind down a bit and the gps drier.

Two friends of mine did LAB2V on a CRF100 and a TTR125. I think our CRFL's will make it, no problem.

Best Dual Sport Bikes Folding Shifter

There was some talk a couple pages back of people asking about folding shift levers. Just picked one up from Best Dual Sport Bikes. My review is the shifter looks nice and functions as it should from my rough measurements the shifter is basically the same size as the stock one.. It feels pretty much the same too maybe a little longer but not much to make any difference.

Summary: Lite, Sweet looking shifter at a good price. Haven't laid the bike down yet so I can't speak on durability but I feel safer with this one on there as opposed to the non folding stock one. here are some photos of my rough measurements.

Was reading about a trio that did it on Honda Trail 90's.
High speed.. er, Low Speed - Low drag? LOL

Hoping to pick up my 250L end of the month.
