Hello, I'm writing from south of France, got my CRF250L in september; it's a very good bike still few in France. I put a 13T sprocket. I'm reading all messages for the mods which are not yet possible in France. I'll try to put some pics of the bike...

I'm a nut with computers: I failed setting a pic in the thread...

Yes, I agree, owners are always willing to share information. Learned a lot here while waiting for my ordered bike to finally get here.

You guys out there that are lusting over a CRF, and live within a 100 miles or so of Memphis, lust no more. My buddy was just at the Honda store in Memphis...$4299 + $120 for county tax and paperwork will get you one! It's not economical for me to drive from Detroit to Memphis to get it....but if you're close....you can get lucky on Monday.

added options

Check-out Turbo City in Anahiem Ca,for lots of protection for your bike.Skid plates,guards,wind deflectors etc.
from what I understand they are working on the cooling system radiator guard.

Those white trim bits and the white seat are sweet...fine job....is that white trim unique to asia....or maybe is it available in europe?

With shipping it was $318.00, that includes all the stickers for the white version(not shown). Btw the seat is silver, not white. I'm thinking about sending my red seat to seat concepts for their make over :) when I get a chance I'll dig up the part numbers.

Sticker removal from plastic

What do you use to remove the factory decals on the rear plastic fender or other plastic parts? Some of you have painted parts of your plastic with the Plasti Dip and I'm curious as to how you removed your decals as they seem tough to remove.

I have yet to remove any stickers on my CRF. But on past bikes, with my wife's hair dryer and GooGone, and really long fingernails, I have had very good results.

I waited until the sun warmed them up good and peeled them off with my finger nail. You could use a blow dryer to warm up and loosen the adhesive. Then I used a little Goo-Gone on a rag to remove any remaining adhesive and then hit it right away with Windex to keep the goo-gone from eating the plastic.
