Suspension Video

Hey I posted this in our Regional section but thought you guys would get a kick out of it. I've been playing with some different camera mounts, and this is the first time I've seen the suspension in action with it. I was amazed how the camera just floats along nice and level and smooth while the suspension seems to be doing quite a bit of work.

I'll tell you running through this deep sand I'm very glad to have the little 250 as opposed to something heavier.

Nearly 3000 miles on her now. Needs new tires!

Having a blast thought. Saved a turtle on a day ride the other day- poor little fella was hard side down in the middle of the road.

Good job on the turtle rescue.

Everybody needs a hand up after an off sometimes.

I installed the ekj programmer on my bike today. When I turn the key on it flashes green and red which mean something is not fully connected or not properly connected. I've checked it twice now and it seems to be correct. Does the bike need to be running in order for this programmer to show the proper lights?

There's no reason you can't run a tube in a tubeless tire, the BMW F800GS and R1200R Classic come with tubes with tubless tires stock and I have run countless ones myself. That's the cheapest method.

You could also send your wheels into Woody's Works Works and have them sealed so you can go tubeless, with your location that might not be the most cost effective though.


The Shinko 705 makes for a great inexpensive long lasting "street" tire is you're looking for something like a 90/10 tire.

All good...flashes red and green because there is power to the injector but no signal... Start it, the red goes away and the green scroll lights start up..
You got it!

Awesome! Thanks for the reply. FedEx delivered everything but the muffler yesterday, so I am kind of dead in the water now

No problem,
U can try it out without it,just change settings to 1.5,1.5,3 and leave change points the same to tune it for stock exhaust....works great you'll really get to see what that tuner does without your muffler then change it back when you add the muffler.
I've played with mine a bit and its awesome..just the tuner alone has my vote for best bang for your buck mod!

I am running Slime in my CRF but tubeless is the way to go.
I have experimented over the years and sealed off the spokes in my Tenere wheels one time but didn't do a very good job (on the front at least):

I think the way this adv-er Cyb, did it was better:
http://cyb.smugmug.com/gallery/72508...979239&k=UFqYE

I also fitted Tubliss to my GS-R last year:
http://adventure-motorcyclingh.com/2...ubliss-liners/
Worked fine but would not do Tubliss again for travelling as keeping 100psi in the liner can be a bit of a reach (actually 80 will do).
Prefer simple spoke sealing.

I believe Woody's don't do 21s? - I know Tubliss didn't sell them in the UK at the time.
I get a feeling 21s can be problematical - diameter vs width - or maybe just safety?

Also, it's important your rim has the 'safety lip' alongside the well inside (graphic in links above). I changed a tyre on my CRF the other day (3000 miles from the OE tyre?!) and it doesn't have them so spoke sealing not such a good idea - but Tubliss will work without 'safety lip' rims.

Thanks...this is good info to know ( 1.5,1.5,3 ) for the stock exhaust. So...is this the same as EJK modifying NOTHING...or is it a bunch of ZEROS = modifying nothing?
