I used to live in L.A, I felt more in danger there.

Thanks for the link. If anyone is in Canada and thinking about ordering, the cheapest shipping was $31 but I emailed them and asked if there was cheaper shipping and they said that they could ship it cheaper and refund me the difference.

Could someone give me the part number from helm or honda for the Service manual. My local dealer doesn't have a listing either. Thanks!

Must be the air injection system that cause backfires, if no leaks on the exhaust line.

I will check all that this WE and give you a feedback

After a try, I can say the BDSB's fresh air line trick is definitly the cure for backfire poping coming w/ stage 1.

Only difference here, i closed the air line 2 ways to avoid unfiltered air return in the air box, if ever ..

I blocked the airbox off with a plug, and used a small filter on the line that comes off the valve cover, works great and doesn't allow pressure to build up.

I did a similar mod, actually all the ones outlined on bestdualsport bikes and it no longer pops on deceleration

On my WR250R, but same same. Use a $2 lightweight gas filter for your crankcase breather tube.

Is this the same fitting that is on the top of the CRF's valve cover that some of you are talking about removing the hose from? If so, why are you putting a filter on it instead of just plugging the fitting like BDSB's did on their website? Somebody explain to me what advantage one way has over the other. I'm trying to understand all this....just not the most mechanically minded person when it comes to stuff like this!

Tire mounting

How many of you mount and balance your own tires? Kind of tired of taking the wheels to the local shop to put the new tires on the wheels. Can I do this without buying any special equipment. I do have tire irons.
Thanks

I change all of my own tires using the techniques shown in the following videos. As the videos demonstrate, I recommend and use the following equipment.

1) Tire Spoons
2) Valve Core Removal Tool
3) Bead Buddy
4) Tire Changing Stand
5) Digital Tire Pressure Gauge
6) Baby Powder
7) Windex, Ru-Glyde, or some other lubricant

Thanks for the reply.
What do you think of that gearing ?
What do you think your top "cruising speed" is ?
and if you were to do it again, would you choose the same ratio ?

I expect that the stock spring works OK riding two up? We would suggest a spring rate that is 20% to 30% softer than stock.
What puzzles me Rick is that you say "I expect that the stock spring works OK riding two up?". I've always understood that a spring is as stiff at whatever level of compression (unless it's a progressive spring, which it isn't). I can't see the shock angle changing under compression on the CRF either (which would change the leverage). What am I missing here?

Well this 67 year old guy just bought the CRF250L and really looking forward to riding it, will pick it up this Thursday or Friday when they get it assembled. I've been riding duel sport bikes for years, but this will be my first bike smaller then a 400 (DRZ400). After reading all the post in this post I'm still not sure what handguards and shifter I want to go with. I found the RFX Racing shifter out of the UK, but couldn't find one of the MSR or other ones sold here in the US. Plus which handguards have any of you found that fit the bike with the stock handbars, I seen pics of handguards on bikes, but no one explained how well they fit the bike. I'm pretty much past the all out days of riding and just need a few addons to complement the bike for safety and protection. Thanks, any info would be appreciated.
