FMF slip-on exhaust

My question is will the FMF Q4 slip-on muffler increase my bikes power? If this is installed do I have to make any other adjustments on my bike so it runs right?

The CBR250R, XR250R, and NX250 C/S sprockets will fit the CRF250L. Next time I suggest you order the Primary Drive, XR250R C/S sprocket from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. The PD C/S sprocket costs $8.99, with a shipping cost of $7; orders over $99 ship for free.

CRAP: If I woulda been sure of interchangeability I'da bought a Renthal 13T....use 14, 15, & 16's on my XR400R (also fit my old XR250R) and are super premium quality....bought some off brands...once...on my XR...were absolute JUNK!! Internal splines were awful! Oh well...live & learn.

I like the Primary Drive sprockets sold by Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. I get good wear from them, and I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

We just did this to our CRF250L at work, the FMF Q4 is about 3 kilos lighter so there is a definate power/weight improvement however you will get more noise than actual power without doing three more things: 1. Add the header as well, either megabomb or powerbomb 2. Add a tuner (like the EJK tuner) 3. Airbox mods (see the best dual sport bikes website for ideas). We have not done any of the above three things (yet), so the bike feels a bit lighter and way louder but not neccessarily more powerful. Have you considered just getting a tuner (EJK or similar) and a 13T front sprocket? Sounds like this is the best (and most cost effective) way to increase power on the CRF250L (based on other users post's). On my own Crf250L I have put on the 13T (love it) and will have the EJK tuner in a couple of weeks....I will post the results when it arrives!

which bars

I'm thinking of changing the bars on my LRP, but I've always used stock ones on all my bikes prior to this so not sure what to go with. Are the Pro Taper Contour the bars to get or will the SE version do for me?

Also, not too keen on the 'high' version. I'm 5'10"...I'm guessing the mid version, possibly with risers, will suit my needs?

Cheers

I'm going to see what the 13 does first, then maybe go with a 42 rear later, if I feel the need. I'll probably post here to see who thinks the best deal is before deciding which vendor to go with. Thanks for the input, Spud.

Rear sprocket change on CRF250L

I going for a 42T rear sprocket change on my CRF. it has the same affect as dropping one tooth on the front but is easier on the chain. as below 14T the turning circle for the chain is a bit tight and adds extra stress.
Since I modified the bike the chain is stretching and there a slight hint of a cluctch slip due to the extra torque the engine is putting out now. I`ll upgrade the clutch with a CBR250R clutch over the coming weeks.

New CRF Owner

Figured this was the right place... I picked up my new CRF250L just under a week ago and have just over 500km on the clock now. Absolutely beautiful bike I spent ages tossing up between the KLR, DR650 and the CRF and figured since this is the first motorbike I have ever owned, the 250cc engine was enough to learn on plus it is bloody cheap to buy. Just over 3 weeks ago I didn't even know how to start a motorbike let alone ride one. Thankfully we have rider training for your licence in Australia

The bike has seen a mixture of dirt, highway and mountain pass and handled everything beyond amazing. I can be sitting at 110km/h, accelerate to overtake a car and then take my exit and hit some dirt tracks. Really surprising considering I am 1.83m tall and 117kg so not the smallest person in the world...

Looking forward to eventually making my way through these pages and getting some good info on this bike!

Thanks for the link Spud. I got mine ordered, or I should say backordered. It appears that this is a popular item
