Nice looks good! For all you guys out there that need to have blinkers sticking out for inspection you can buy the custom bracket, and tail light from Wheelingcyclesupply.com for cheaper. I bought the smoke tail light for 40.95 and the custom crf250l bracket for 29.95 had money left over for led blinkers and the resistors too. If you dont count the blinkers and resistor i bought you can get a sweet fender eliminator kit for 71 bucks plus shipping.. you have to call and order it though.

I just ordered the kit today because it looks awesome. Were good instructions provided with the kit? Next mod will be the rear shock.

I'm at the Chicago bike show now. Most of the people looking at the CRF250L are older! (Like me)

I've decided I want one and I'm saving up... half way there. I'll be 54 in April.

Hey guys... I don't have one of these... I have the KLX250S. I was over on the Kawasaki forum today, and in the KLX250S section, there's a thread on the CRF250L (a positive thread, btw, not a bash-fest). Anyway, somebody in there posted that they heard that Bill Blue is working on a big bore kit already for the CRF250L. He's the guy who makes the very popular 351cc big bore for the KLX.

Word has it that he has a 283cc version working at the moment, but is aiming to go bigger. There's nothing about it yet on his website, so it's just hearsay at the moment. Still, I thought you might want to know. http://bandbcyclerestoration.com/

I think the CRF250L is a neat little bike. If I ever need a second 250 dual sport, I'll seriously consider one.

Rob

He obviously has more money and free time to update his technically proficient website than he actually rides the bike to be taken too seriously.

The LRP is great for what it is, great bike for us as OEM for sure, but the ramz site just makes me laugh and the constant references to him as a know it all LRP guy to be listen too are a fucking joke.


We love our LRP, if we wanted it to "perform" like a WR or KTM, we would have bought a WR or KTM... or Husaberg 390. or Husky 310. All attainable for what that ramz dude has into his bike. "faster" isn't always better though IMO, especially for less aggressive riders... that why we love the LRP as is.
By the time you severely mod a CRF into performing like any higher performance bike, you've lost the fuel efficiency, low entry to DS price, warranty, and probably the long term Honda reliability that make an LRP attractive in the first place. And no amount of money dumped in is going to take away the steel frame and other added weight or budget components of the LRP...
You folks have fun dumping cashinto a bike trying to make the LRP something it's not. (that you'll get maybe 25% back on your investment when you realize it's still a Little Red PIG and buy a higher performance bike if you somehow think will make you go faster if that's your goal, when in reality the problem is the nut holding onto the handlebars)






- from a LRP rider that doesn't overload a little 250cc bike, actually rides it, and enjoys it for what it is.

Be willing to bet there isn't a single person on here who has left the bike stock. To each his/her own. I wouldn't be punching out the motor, and increasing the compression ratio from 10.7:1 to 12:1, then having to run premium gas, but that's just me. Just a skid plate, rear rack, hand guards, and a tank bag so far for me, but I wouldn't say I was done just yet. I was able to ride up, and add Stabil, and top off the tank yesterday morning, just as the snow started. Hard to tell how much we got, the drifting has made it so that right next to bare ground, there's a 4' drift. The clock on the microwave was flashing, so we lost power, but it's on right now. The weather folks were saying a couple of feet, too bad they got this one right......

Hey lost rider ....

Am I a Fucking joke because ....

I bought a Corbin seat to improve the comfort of my LRP on the street.
I bought FMF mega bomb/Q4 exhaust with a programmer to add a little more power.
I bought a 13/42 sprocket combo to help lift the front tire when needed. (or for fun)
I bought Rox risers and HDB handgaurds with mirrors along with protaper 1 1/8 bars and pillow top grips.
I bought a Race Tech rear shock built for my weight and style of riding.
I bought a flatland radiator guard (cuz I saw your post) and a skid plate for protection.
I bought a speedo calibrator to keep my odometor accurate.
I bought a Yoshamira tail light (just for looks)
I bought a Scotts steering damper.

And I am having my forks built with Race Tech springs and valves for my weight and style.

I have followed your posts and visited your website. I have listened respectfully of your thoughts and opinions. And I am kinda in shock that you would make such a post against a fellow rider just doing what he enjoys.

People waste lots of money on their 4X4's and their Harleys and their cars etc....

I love Honda and its a fantastic bike even in its stock form. I believe I have invested my money well and will enjoy many years on a bike that in my mind will be better suited for me than any of the bikes you have mentioned.

Sorry for the rant and I mean no disrespect but, because I listen to you (lost Rider) or Ramz or any other of these fine gentelman on this forum does not make me a FUCKING JOKE.
