Oh, my bad. I forgot that those screwdrivers are a one-time use tool.

Rox Risers on the CRF250L

Did the first mod to the CRF250L Super Moto conversion (still waiting on the wheels and tires).

I put some 2" Rox Risers on the bike and I like the way it feels. 2 inches is about all you can do unless you address the wires and cables. The throttle cables are snug at full lock but they don't effect the throttle body. I plan on rotating the throttle 180 degrees and have the cables come off the bottom. I think I saw it done on this sight. Getting new grips so it should work.

I'll keep you posted.

02 Sensor Unclipped + EJK Tuner

So, at least on my bike, un-clipping the 02 sensor is a definate improvement. Bike has even more grunt (measured with a before and after "ass dynometer"). On a long, steep hill I'm able to get up to 100kph whereas before i struggled to get past 90kph before (this is from a standing start). The bike seems to sound deeper? And I am pleased to say: the stalling issue has gone. My bike (pre-ejk) occasionally stalled when slowing down to a complete stop (with clutch pulled in). After installing the EJK, my bike would stall EVERY TIME I came to the first stopsign (about 250m) from my house. After the bike warmed up then it did not happen. So far, with the 02 sensor removed, the stalling has gone!! Makes sense, as the EJK instructions explain it. So my verdict is: 02 Sensor will remain unclipped. Depending on whether it seriously reduces fuel efficiency on long hauls (which I highly doubt) then I might clip it back in. I will tape the ends with 'lectric tape so dirt doesn't get in and zip tie the loose end down on the secure end.

Very cool- I would like to know if the front/rear springs (but more the rear) would work as an upgrade to 250L? Might be cheaper than having to buy a whole new rear shock....

Just layed down a deposit

Hi everyone. I just layed down a deposit on my new CRF250L! I may have picked up the last one on a showroom floor in the state of Oregon from what I can tell. Every dealer I called said they have zero inventory till June at least!

$5054.50 out the door, with Tax and licensing and offroad sticker. I have to head over to Klamath Falls to get it, about ninety miles, but at least now I can officially be in the club here on this forum right? I'm picking her up next Saturday.

I am slowly reading through every page and post of the owners forum. I'm on page 80 of over 150 right now. I am very excited


Thanks you guys for putting so much knowledge and information on these boards for NOOBs like me to absorb and learn from.
