They also sell a "Rallye 591", a Hepco and Becker luggage rack and one made by "Alpha Three" over here:
I have the first rack. Got it from biker bitz in Thailand .

I decided to get my GF a 250L after our Alaska trip this summer.

She is 5'5 with midget legs.

Pretty confident that she will love the bike.

Now for me though. Should I get a 250L or a WR? Im 6'4, with enough inseam to flat foot any bike.

After looking around, I wish they would bring the white crf to the US. I am not fan of having no other colors than red.

We will use the bike for adventuring and trail roads.

For you, I would say get the WR. It has a little bit more power and a taller seat height. You can also buy white or black plastics for the WR.

If you're 6'-4" I'd get a WR250R or a KTM 350/500.

Good luck !

Translate please "after clearing DTC".....does that mean unplug the engine management computer to let it get "stupid"?

do i assume " resetting TP sensor " is a process described somewhere in the manual where they tell you to loosen the TP (Throttle Position) sensor and rotate it to get a prescribed output voltage also specified somewhere in the service manual?

I was just going to order one but, so many choices that I am not sure what to order. I may have to call them or something

Do you think a guy should order it with or without the welt ? and does it make it stronger as well ?

To clear the DTC, you must short the DLC

All that .. to say you sould be at last a rocket scientist just to set the idle speed on one of these technichally up-to-date bike

Altrough i also have an idling problem and i got the service manual, im still shy to go into that. Cant neither copy the entire manual to describe procedures.

Maybe i will eventually try the Lost's screw

btw, SAS is secondary Air System, TP sensor is Throttle Position, DTC is Diagnostic Trouble Code, IACV Idle Air Control Valve and MIL is Malfunction Indicator Lamp, DLC is Data Link Connector

Wonder how it compares to the Seat Concept's seat
http://seatconcepts.com/products#!/~...56&id=18216003

I have one of their seats on my KTM and it is a very good seat, for less than 1/2 the price.
I think the seat is my need upgrade on this bike.
Anyone know?

Don't know how the Corbin compares to the Seat Concepts. But I did get a low, carbon fiber red seat from them. This weekend a buddy with an air stapler is gonna get R done for me!

BTW a Black Friday Seat Concepts low cost me $139

Not sure what's up with the idle adjust being like that. Last 2 street bikes I had could be idle adjusted at a red light, either with a leatherman, or by hand, with a rubber hose attached (factory installed) to the idle screw, both with FI.

Yeah I was checking out the options too. They dont show how the options effect the seat appearance. I want one just like the picture.

Thanks for the info and descriptions of the "IACV" etc. The fact that there is a "DLC" tells me there is a "device" to talk to the computer. Such a device may not be available to us peons, but dealers should have them. IACV is the new "SAE" correct description for what was called in the 80's (when I was somewhat involved in engine calibration) an "Idle Air bypass Valve". If you've ever owned an '80's era Ford Taurus V6, you learned to hate idle air bypass valves because they would get gummed up with crap from the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system, and the engine wouldn't idle for shit!
