White looks nice!

Personally, this is the first bike Ive owned that isnt getting any cosmetic upgrades....I just dont see the point. Its gonna get dirty, dropped, scratched, broke, wrecked, tossed, and ridden. Ill get my luggage, my crash protection for the essentials, keep up with my mechanicals. Yeah its a 2013 but dual sports still look best after theyve seen some adventures rather than staying squeaky clean like the road bikes.

I may rattle can it some day? Haha

Little Red Piggy, as seen in not so famous or not so great videos like this one.

By all means don't confuse it with the BRP (Big Red Pig), the Honda XR650R.

Another Noob....

Greetings from just another Noob. I have a CRF on order...should be in my garage by 01/12 or so. I have been lurking and learning for a couple of months and appreciate the knowledge base. I have been pre-farkling and have a closet full of stuff just itching to be installed (Flatland skid plate and radiator guard, Manrack, Wolfman E12's, handguards etc). I have ridden street bikes for 30 years and always wanted something to leave the pavement. I looked at sooooo many dual-sports and just couldn't pull the trigger. I took a ride on a CRF and believe I found what I was looking for!

Welcome to the party Irish, Christmas is coming a little late for you this year…. congrats on your new bike, have fun getting off the beaten paved path, beware though it's like crack and can become very addicting.




Thanks ry, glad you like, it's supposed to be a little funny…. can't take life too seriously now can we?

Thanks for the welcome! Great video Lost...I hope that's what you do for a living otherwise you missed your calling! Love your decals as well and hope to obtain a few.

I would like to replace my brake lines with some braided stainless and wondering how much of a job it is. I have bled and replaced fluid on many a brake but never pulled or replaced lines. Is it considerably harder starting with a dry line to get all the air out?

Great thread!

OMG ! I just finished reading this whole thread. It took a few days but I did it before the year ended. I can't decide between it and possibly the Husqvarna 650Terra. Luckily, I have till spring to decide. Gotta pay bills off first. In this whole thread, I have not read anything that I would take as a negative of the 250.

Still working on getting through all the posts but I've read many of them. I'm a total noob to motorcycles, getting in it to keep up with my 15 yr old son. For a first time bike I'm trying to decide between this and the wr250r. I'm 5"11 175lbs so I don't think I have to have a smallerish bike. I will do off road with my son who has a 2 stroke 125 and then I want to commute to work, 10 miles, no highway. For me, I think either bike will work, though the wr250r may be better off road when I improve as a rider. I think it's coming done to cost of these new. Nothing used in my area. I've looked at both manuals and the wr250r seems to have a longer maintenance schedule especially on the valves. Am I reading that right? Seems to the crf250l has a valve check at 600 miles then every 8k, as well as other maintenance where as the wr is valves at 24k, but reg maintenance is every 6k. Im no mechanic so this translates to direct costs, will try to learn many thanks to posts here but are there any thoughts on what this maintenance translates to for the two bikes? Or does it still just come down to preference?
