P.S.
This happened on the 7th hihg-speed-nose-dive crash. Bike took first 6 like nothing.
Bike Bandit might have it on their website. www.bikebandit.com

A good reminder to put zip ties in my kit. Glad you're ok.

maintenance

Hey guys, what are the valve adjustment intervals and oil change intervals for this bike? After the holiday season is over, I will be picking up either this one or a ninja 300. I think the deciding factor will be the maintenance intervals.

Thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head suggested intervals are 600 mile oil change/valve inspection. Then 8k oil change, 16k valve adjustment/oil change etc.

Yes I'd say that is a DRC Edge tail light and plate holder... looks much neater (personally I prefer the Anato, although that doesn't have a licence plate illumination)...

But why that nasty sounding exhaust? Not only does it sound sh!t, but it is so loud... seriously why by a D/S bike then p!ss everybody off by making it sound like that?

Keep 'em quiet - ride stealth!

Rack from PMB

FYI, I emailed Pro Moto Billet and they replied that they have already developed a Rack-it rear cargo rack for the CRF250L - due to be out in the next couple weeks.

In short order, a skid plate from Ricochet and a rack from PMB. Who's stepping up to get rear spring options?!

To each his own but this bike doesn't have a tach and is way too quiet to hear the rpms when you are at speed. and besides I like loud bikes they are too boring when they are quiet I like to hear that single THUMP!

True, I like them to sound nice and have slightly more power as well - however that one in the video sounds way over 96 db max that is becoming the standard for most places on the trails (and here in colorado as well). The FMF q4 is 94db max - I am getting one and much lighter (6 pounds light as well). Besides you can get a cheap tach/hour meter here:

I got one of those tachs, very handy... So where does thing redline? This is my first thumper in what seems like forever so I'm still trying to adjust to exactly where it needs and wants to be ridden...

Ordered it on September 6th. It shipped from Bangkok, Thailand.
Would have arrived sooner if the USPS didn't send it to the wrong post office. The package was address clear and correct.

Just picked up a crf250l two weeks ago and discovered this site so I figured I'd sign up. Great site. A little over 200 miles and I love this bike! I used to have a drz400s and got rid of it 5 years ago. For the past year I was missing that bike and when I saw Honda was coming out with this I had to get one. The drz was a good bike but overall I'm liking this bike even more even with its smaller engine displacement. Its all stock right now but that will probably change in the future. I'm debating on getting the fmf complete exhaust but not too sure about repacking intervals. I've heard every 20 hours. Ouch! I also use the bike to commute to work (20 minutes one way) so I really don't want to have to repack the freakin thing every month! I was wondering would every 3,000-4,000 miles be ok? Any info or advice would be great. Thanks.
