Might pay to try a supermoto front fender- made a huge difference on my DR650 when I got rid of the big floppy OEM front fender....

If the bike is on the sidestand, does the tankbag want to flop back into place while filling the tank? Since the CRF has those silly bars across the fill hole, I use 2 hands on the gas filler to make sure the gas flows into the tank and not all over everything. Any commentary on your experiences fueling with this tank bag?
Here are a couple of pics of my setup...filled it today sitting on the bike with gloves on...no problem...unzip 2 sides fill er up. These are taken with the bike on the side stand. Just dont forget to zip the top up so all your shit does'nt fall on the ground from the main bag!

Was I the only one stuffing around with key to get it to lock again after filling with fuel??? only to realize I just had to push it down and it snap shut perfectly.

No problem...It rained here in Boise all day! My bike was out in the elements in a parking lot. No water on the inside of the bag at all...Then the ride home in the rain...No moisture in the bag! Im sure it will leak eventually as it is not 100% sealed but it is better than a cordura setup for sure..also it maintains its shape which I like alot.

One thing I do want to note is that the headshake only happens when there is a car n front of me and I'm in their "backdraft". The bigger the vehicle the worse the shaking. If there is no one in front of me the bike rides smooth. I'm thinking maybe I should take it to the dealer I bought it from.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
What you are describing is buffeting
Buffeting air behind a car at one point will oscillate back and forth(from the right to left or left to right) but it typically around a 1 second oscillation
You can get closer to the car in front of you (draft) I am talking real close like 10 ft and be inside the buffet or you can trail back to where the buffet subsides. (good place to be)
A different front fender will help (recommended) but you will still notice it as the tire is still affected.
A stabilizer wont do squat unless you have it set for going straight only (not realistic)
welcome to the world of the dual sport where 21 inch tires and light front ends do weird things out on the road

230lbs and 5ft 11. I like the bike a lot but not a highway cruiser by any means. I love to be in the dirt and city streets

I hope somebody will confirm this..

Don't be offended...people will get around to it once a topic gets covered sufficiently. If you are dead set on the Highway Handguards top clamp I can't answer your question. I went with the Cycra Pro-Bend Bar Pack without the clamps. I purchased the front mount triple tree clamp and it's very sturdy. It took no bending and fit like a champ. Just a thought...

I visited Istanbul a few years back. Had a great time..It's a fabulous city!

Welcome. Don't be dismayed; people usually don't reply because they don't know the answer to your question.

I've never been to Istanbul, but I would love to visit your city. James Bond raced his CRF250 across the rooftops of the Grand Bazaar in the movie SkyFall. However, Bond rode a CRF250R, not a CRF250L. Here's a video describing how the stunt was filmed.



Here's the actual footage from the movie.



I suggest you don't try this at home on your CRF250L.
