My mods are: EJK Programmer, FMF Q4 muffler, Megabomb Header, backfire screen removed, 13/43 Sprockets.
That's what I did as well / all the same mods here besides the rear sprocket.Did you happen to notice any backfiring on deceleration? I may have to up my cruise fuel.

I do notice a little bit of backfiring but only when I'm decelerating.

Hang onto that exhaust..quick change and its ready for close to and in town stuff,trust me the q4 is loud enough to get some pretty dirty looks.
It's nice when close to homes to be so quiet. Zip,zip,zip. The q4 roars compared,in the middle of nowhere where no one will be bothered its awesome! that's my plan anyway.

Drop by I'll lend you my tuner. Lol

Cool, thanks
I'll probably just leave it for now,I kinda like it like that anyway,sounds a bit like one of my hd's with the screamin eagles if you twist your head and squint just right. Lol
I've got other stuff to mess with on it now after the bike and I slid 20' on our sides down a steep rocky slope after endowing a 6' vertical drop halfway down a long scary down hill....not so shiny anymoe

The Cycra ProBend CRM (Center Reach Mount) for 7/8 inch bars is what I went with. They fit on the stock and on the new Renthal bars.

Well I got to take my bike out for the first time this year . It felt good to get back in the saddle again especially since I just installed a seat concepts seat which is a nice upgrade over stock. I did a little mix of highway,town and dirt roads. However, on my way back home my bike started to stall and then surge. well about a mile later I found out why...no gas even though my gas gauge had one solid bar still. It must of gotten stuck, luckily I was only about 2 blocks down the highway from a gas station so I got some exercise today anyways. Some pics of the bike happy to see daylight again:

Awesome, I can't wait to save up enough to get the programmer and header. I'd like to put all of them on at once but my patience is non-permitting.

I was really hoping it wouldn't be so loud!

After spending too much time on YouTube it seemed like the quieter option.. I putt around town all day too, I guess we'll see how she blows.

Ventura eh? I live near Ojai/Oak View, swing on by sometime to compare bikes or shoot the shit. I can't ride but am home all the time right now...
We could do some testing for bikes with and without controllers maybe...

Moving to westlake village in a week so make it quick, or come out there too if it's closer.

2 strokes just free wheel.

I miss the old oil burners.

heh, yes, my little 125cc ring-a-ding trials bike loves to coast and is nice and light!

Generally comments like this come from folks who have one for the first time, when you chop the throttle on FI bike there very little/no fuel going through the injector and the engine braking is more pronounced than with a carb'd bike, that also adds to why we get better MPG. All my bike are FI and feel similar to what your saying and I've seen lots of comments on the BMW forums from folks coming from a old school bike just like yours.
It's something you get used to, even depend on when coming to a stop.
I wouldn't disconnect the throttle return cable, but that's just me. If you think there's a real issue with it stalling then take it to the dealer and see what they have to say.

Good luck!
Neither my CBR250R (same FI engine, different tuning) nor my BMW G650GS (FI) have such abrupt engine braking. I do not think that it's stalling.

Guess I'll add working *much* harder at smooth throttle to my list of riding-things-to-improve!

It was awesome to get the bike out at Big Bend, turn on the key and start the bike, and voila! It was jetted for 2000ft instead of 8300ft at home.

Thanks again for the replies!

cheers

The CRF250L is my first bike. Ive had it about 2 months not. I currently have a CRFsonly FMF performance package on its way. I went with the powercore4 and the powerbomb. I am extremely excited to see what this bike will become. When I bought the bike i had no idea how big of a deal they are.

Welcome to the club!

You're right, this bike is a big deal!
It's opening the door for a lot of people to get into dual sport riding, along with being a perfect bike for not so new the adv life and that's a good thing.

Enjoy, and take some photos!

I've been suspended!

New Racetech Rear suspension, front springs and valves installed today. Gosh! It feels so different! Being a 200 LB Rider. I feel like like not only does the suspension feel more plush, but it ads way more "effective" suspension. As my weight alone probably killed an inch or two of stock, that is now available with aftermarket. Hitting trails this weekend!

Two Bros Slip-om

So I've been giving the whole exhaust thing a lot of thought. I've been tossing around the idea of the two brothers racing slip on kit for my 250L.

Any one pre order one?

They are supposed to ship mid-may and I'm not really a big fan of the FMF setup any one else got a slip on they recommend? I have used two brothers stuff in the past with good results

I'm not looking to go with a full exhaust or fuel programmer, just a slip-on. Seems like I almost get hit every time I hit the back roads of NH. I'm thinking people can't hear me.
