Ya, thats the same URL I tried yesterday (shows Cdn pricing). It still shows the bars as not being available in their int. database.

I'll give them a call at lunch time.

Good question. I guess I'll figure it out when the bars arrive. If someone does have an answer, please chime in.

Ramz used a cycra side triple clamp mount on his wrr I'm thinking the front triple clamp mount cycra pt# 1655-02 will work on crfl. Will deff make for a stout set up. Possible will need longer triple clamp hardware to mount them maybe ramz can chime in.

Service Manual Out of Stock

I'm at the point where I need to check valve clearance, I called to order the service manual but Helm is out of stock. I've read through LostRider's post and did the research online, the process seems fairly straight forward. Those of you doing this service yourself, is there anything that the manual covers that you haven't seen posted?

Here's a decently instructive vid on youtube, it's for a CRF250R, but I would imagine it's fairly similar to the the 250L.
Code:
thanks!

Just got off the phone with them. It's not a restriction in selling any of the pieces to Canada, apparently its just a problem with the web site itself. They told me to try it again in about 10 minutes (it's been like that since yesterday..) They also said because it's an International order it has to be done online.

Easton Bars

Found this in another thread, looks like it's regarding the 1 1/8 bars but most likely a similar outcome to the 1 3/8 as well (If not, more so):

I've used Bones clamps on a few of my scoots, work great with Cycra pro bends, but you have to bend the EE's to fit.

I found this info on Eastons site..
Q: Can I attach accessories to this bar just like other size bars?

A: Since Easton’s EXP bar center and clamps are 35mm and have a unique taper profile, many current hand guard clamps won’t yet attach as is. Just like many of you, several of us here ride with full hand guards, flag guards, stabilizers, trip computers etc… we are working to address accessory compatibility. Please check back here to our site at the end of January for updates regarding solutions for clamp-based accessories. Flags: To our knowledge, all popular models work with our bars. Full Hand Guards: After evaluating the current solutions available we can only recommend full hand guards that attach at the bar clamp or triple clamp. Several popular options of these solutions exist. Stabilizers: We’ve begun to work with all the popular stabilizer makers to ensure we’ll have several solutions available this year. Check here for updates on specifics or contact our customer service team to find out the latest on a favorite model you’re attempting to use. We’ll provide the latest recommendations. Trip computers: Two bolt clamp mounts and most bar clamps won’t fit our EXP system yet. We’re investigating solutions now, so again check in with us for the latest. For the enterprising among you please check out our technology overview pages.

Easton makes tons of different handlebars like OE and Renthal.

This is from Eastons site. http://www.eastonexp.com/faq/

Q: Why 35mm?
A: Our testing and development over the last two decades has determined that it’s the ideal size for a motorcycle bar made from aluminum. 7/8 is just too small for performance or durability, and must be supported by a crossbar. 1 1/8 works well in many conditions, but is not as durable as the sport now demands. Other bars with blended 1 1/8" and 7/8" (Renthal® Twinwall) sizes are inconsistent in feel due to relative stiffness and weakness depending on direction of force - they’re also not nearly as durable.

Q: Will I be able to cut an Easton EXP bar down for woods work?
A: Many of the new off road bikes now pack hydraulic controls and some are even street legal with horns, starters and switchgear, so we’ve provided 200mm of flat on each end of our seven mx/sx/ax bends. Initially we also will offer a woods bend with 210mm of flat on each end that can be trimmed very aggressively if needed yet still carry all controls. The ends of the bar have precision markings to assist with even cuts.


Here a pic of the CR highs and the KTM/Suzuki bends I bought. My Freestyle /Woods high bars should be here anytime.

Chain lube

Most recently my bikes have been street, way different animal as far a chain lube goes. Hoping to be a high percentage of dirt/street (right now it's 0/0 due to weather). Any opinions? This one shouldn't be as bad as, "How should I break in my bike". Used to use 80 weight gear oil on my O-ring street, probably just going to attract dirt like a magnet on a DS.
