As has been mentioned before, make sure any clip-style master link you use matches the chain...the service manual says it is DID520VF. I'm 99% sure it is an O-ring chain..
Yes, but VF is not mentioned in the DID catalogs, it is specific to CRF250L and CBR250R. And that's about all you get when you google it.
So i'm waiting for the dealer to get spare master links for 520VX2.

Personally I am not going to mess with the stock chain for at least 10,000 miles, and will never do anything other than the 13/40 and 14/40 sprocket combos. If I do like 13/40 gearing when it's time to replace the chain, I'd go with 14/43 or 14/45 as I do not like small countershaft sprockets
Yes, i will not do 13. I got a 44 tooth rear. i think smaller front sprockets might be harder on clip master links too.

Chain Tool

The crem-de-la-crem chain tool from Motion Pro is on sale here: http://store.mm411.com/index.cfm?fus...&ParentCat=195

$78..not inexpensive...not "cheap" if it saves your ass in the middle of nowhere when your chain needs serious repair, it's worth 5x that. BUT...play with it, learn how to use it....otherwise it's worthless.

I do have that shifter and it works fine, even gave me a better possession for my foot when wearing boots. I did change the bolt to a longer one and added a lock nut to the longer threads, just something I've always done.

Air Intake Temperature Sensor

Been dredging all sorts of forums including this esteemed bunch of social misfits for days now in the hope of finding information where the AIT sensor is located on the 250L. Anyone know?
Have fitted an on - off switch to the O2 sensor tonight, will test tomorrow to see what error codes come up. Thinking that a diode or resistor in line with the open loop position may work to sort the error codes. Call it African bush mechanics on the cheap.
BT original topic - where is the AIT on the 250L?

Thanks for the link. I got it from Amazon Prime. $55.00 . Looks simple enough. It will go into my survival kit.

Looks like it's in #1 on this: http://www.hondapartsnation.com/oemp.../throttle-body

Helm manual says IAT sensor (not AIT) has two wires going to it, grey/blue, green/white. This trouble shooting section is rather complicated (to me), not totally sure this is what you actually need. Not messed with this stuff myself. Hope this helps?

Anybody know of a place I can look at dyno comparisons for different mods on the 250l? Or at least a place that compares exhausts?

I just bought the Q4 megabomb combo and I dont think I like the Q4. Its a great pipe and many people tell me they think its a 450 but Id like to hear what some other pipes sound like. I was looking at the yosh but saw one video where it looked very ugly on the bike. I like to looks of the big gun evoR but have a feeling it doesnt have the best power and the 4.1 is an option also

Youtube videos suck for sound comparisons

It usually takes between 20 and 40km before the PGM FI light in the console comes on when caning the bike like riding between 115 and 125 km/h. Stop along the side of the road, switch off, switch engine back on again and the console light is out.

Might be different models in different parts of the world, I'm in S.Africa. There's quiete a bit of information on the interwebs about Honda's throwing error codes when the O2 thingy is disconnected. Not an issue though since I ran the (single strand) O2 wire over a simple on off switch. The long term benefits of this hack are still to be determined......

Dunlop D606

Just ordered a D606 120/90-18 from motorcyclesuperstore, free shipping, enter discount code M159-Dunlop-5%, for $88.34. The weather has been so good, my original rear will be toast soon. Sale ends 4/30/13 11:59 PM.

edit: They charged me for shipping, WTF. Sent an inquiry, we'll see.

another edit: They responded that the discount dropped me below the free shipping amount, but are fixing it, so it does ship free.

Selling***

I am looking to sell my 2013 Honda CRF 250l dual sport. I have installed new sprockets changing the gearing from 14/40 (stock) to 13/42. I have installed an FMF Powercore 4 muffler on it. I have installed new handlebar grips. I have installed a yoshimura fender eliminating kit with LED light. This bike has less then 1,000 miles on it. It is fuel injected, chain driven, and electric start (so no struggling with kick starting) The bike has been dropped a few times but no major damage was done just minor scratches that are typical when riding off road. It still looks clean and rides better then stock because of the modifications. The only reason I am looking to sell this bike is to buy a touring bike for my wife and I, otherwise I would keep it. Please email me if you are interested. I am not looking to make money off of this bike, just to break even. I will include a helmet, gloves, honda book bag, a rear luggage rack, all the original parts, and a motorcycle cover if purchased. Email me at kmjinks@yahoo.com or call me 804-477-5446.
