2013 Honda CRF 250l

I am looking to sell my 2013 Honda CRF 250l dual sport. I have installed new sprockets changing the gearing from 14/40 (stock) to 13/42. I have installed an FMF Powercore 4 muffler on it. I have installed new handlebar grips. I have installed a yoshimura fender eliminating kit with LED light. This bike has less then 1,000 miles on it. It is fuel injected, chain driven, and electric start (so no struggling with kick starting) The bike has been dropped a few times but no major damage was done just minor scratches that are typical when riding off road. It still looks clean and rides better then stock because of the modifications. The only reason I am looking to sell this bike is to buy a touring bike for my wife and I, otherwise I would keep it. Please email me if you are interested. I am not looking to make money off of this bike, just to break even. I will include a helmet, gloves, honda book bag, a rear luggage rack, all the original parts, and a motorcycle cover if purchased. Email me at kmjinks@yahoo.com or call me 804-477-5446.

I don't know.. you could do a lot worse for a two up tourer. In fact that's probably the best reason to have one.

Speaking of, I've been in Nags Head for the weekend, coincidentally winding up on end of Piratefest 2013, aka bike week. Thousands of rugged individualists, riding in formation, nearly indistinguishable from one another..

They do seem to enjoy themselves though. The locals love them, rentals booked and restaurants hopping. Lots of live music. If not for them, it would have been deadsville down there.

Hd

I put about 100k on one of my FLHs in about two years no problems at all, most of the HD bashing is done by someone who has never owned one. I also have a bad reaction to the posers but most of it is all in fun, hopefuly like all the HD bashing. If you did start looking at HDs let me know I would be glad to share the little bit that I know with you. AB

I don't bash HD's as a brand. Just getting rid of the dual sport for one. For two bikes, awesome. For one, not so much.

Question: Anyone using air-soft pellets to balance their tires?

I have been trying it for a while and it is working quite well. I did have to increase the weight to 4 oz in the front tire to get it to smooth out... 3oz may have worked. I started with two ounces, dropped a 2oz wheel weight, and about 80 there is a bit of a vibration. I was debating if I should go to 3oz and try again, or double it to 4oz to avoid the hassle of adding yet again.

I am pondering if too many beads will cause problems.... thoughts?

Never tried beads myself, but from the videos I have seen It did not look like too many would hurt. The extras just migrate around and space themselves out evenly while the rest of the beads hang out where they need to be to create balance. Beads seem to be the way to go for most vehicles and I expect them to catch on more. They are supposed to work with tubes as well but I have not tried them yet.

If you did a lot of your growing up in the 80's, read this. Shortly after you'll be on craigslist looking for gpz's..
Cool article on 80's bike nostalgia

I probably should put (sold) in my signature on the bikes I no longer own. I sold it a few years ago. It was my first street legal motorcycle. It ran like a top most of the time. I liked the engine it it. Mine had less than 5,000 miles on it when I got it. It could have used a good cleaning out of the carbs, but I didn't own it long enough. Some days it would be finicky to start, and one day it overheated on me. But I think with a good clean out I wouldn't have had any issues. My only advice to someone that would be getting one would be redo the suspension. That to me was the biggest weak point. It wasn't very good off road from what I remember. It would do graded dirt roads fine, and was a blast on the street. But on rough terrain it was horrible.

I run Dyna Beads in all my front tires. Tubeless or not. I do not use them in the rear tires. To me it "fine tunes" the smoothness and continues to work as the tire wears. If you take a spoon you can collect the beads from an old tire and reuse them. It has worked for me.

You know what I was one of those guys until I actually test rode one. The vibration is only at the light but super smooth while moving. It was plenty fast enough with a 1700cc engine. Great investment because it does not depreciate in value. A no brainer for my wife and I to enjoy.

Are you sure? All this talk about HDs holding their value got me wondering. I checked on a 2009 FLSTC Heritage Softtail Classic compared to a 2009 Vstrom ABS in Kelly Blue Book. From MSRP to retail the HD lost about $2k more. Trade in value the Vstrom lost about $100 more. Percent wise the HD wins hand down because it just cost more. But dollar for dollar it all depends. Of course if I had an HD I would not have to check the valves.
