Stock Bars

Ok, odd request, I'm looking for a pair of stock CRF250L handle bars, they're going on my GSX1100. Tried them the other night and they were perfect on the big Suzuki, but alas the bike tipped over on the garage and tweaked the bars and now I really want another set. PM or email please, this thread grows afr too quickly to keep track of responses. I am of course willing to pay for these bars

I had the same problem,I could even get it to stall by blipping the throttle from an idle in neutral.
Would pop and backfire and sometimes stall on decel

Fixed it by adjusting the idle screw just over 1/4 turn
Runs awesome now,great throttle response and no stalls!

Does anyone know of a good spark plug wrench for the LRP? I want one in my tool kit, and I'm not sure what kind provides the easiest access.

I don't carry a 3/8" ratchet, so the socket types are out.

Thanks everyone who answered my question about roll starting the 250L. I tried roll starting in 3rd the other day worked flawlessly, just make sure your kill switch is in run position lol.

Thanks for the heads up, after reading this I checked mine out and noticed that it was starting to distort. After riding up one of the larger mountains near me with a passenger and the outside temp about 90 degrees, I noticed that it was beginning to distort a lot and was extremely hot. I will definitely be getting something to shield the heat before my next ride.

Shark fin

Wasn't some aftermarket company supposed to be working on a shark fin (disc protector)? Anybody have one on a different bike? I saw some trials bikes, (Sherco), that had a plastic protector mounted to the caliper bolts, encasing the disc. The rear probably isn't as vulnerable. Someone, maybe Sugardust, said that she bent a disc, on a non-CRF, and it wasn't any fun getting the bike home.

Where is the idle screw and what direction did you turn the screw?

DRC Tail Light With External Turn Signals

Just ordered my DRC tail light (https://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/product/704). Can't wait till it gets here so I can drop some junk from the trunk of the LRP. I'll post pics as soon as it's installed.

Here are some pics from the DRC website.

Just bought mine 9 days ago

Hi All,

Just bought my LRP 9 days ago. I sold both my scooters and will be using this as my daily commuter. I rode my scooter 365 days a year, through snow and all. I am new to the DS bikes but am enjoying my CRF.

I posted a short 8 day review of my experience. Would you mind taking a look and giving me feedback.

I just moved from the scooter forums to here, and I'm excited about my new Urban Dual Sport.



Thanks

How can you make it a supermoto? There's a guy on supermotojunkie.com that has converted his CRF250L, but it's expensive to roll your own. I would wait till Honda releases the CRF250M in the US and buy that, or whatever parts you need for conversion if you want to triple-sport your bike.

CRF250L Super Moto

I'm almost done with mine, well the wife's bike.

I'll post a full report once I'm finished.

Highlights:

You have to run a 110 tire up front because a 120 will rub at the fattest part of the Forks (near the seals). You do have to trim the fork guards on the inside because the tires will rub. You also need to route your front brake line around the outside of the fork.

With a 140 tire on the rear I still had some clearance issue with the stock chain guard (slight rubbing with the edge of the tire, the tire is winning!). With some creative trimming I can fix that. Or maybe hit it with a heat gun and reshape it a little. I need to make some measurements but you might be able to squeeze a 150 on the rear but that chain guard will need some serious trimming or removal.

I worked with Warp9 to get the correct spacers for the rear wheel. First set didn't work out because the rotor was touching the inside brake pad when I snugged up the axle. Once they shifted it over to the right a tad I had to replace the rotor bolts with provided Allen head screws for clearance. The Allen head is about .502MM away from the caliper mount. I'm going to check and see if they have a rotor with counter sunk holes and appropriate hardware. That just seems too close.

Besides SuperMotos being a hoot to ride I was also getting the bike down to my wife's inseam. With the front wheel swap and raising the forks up I moved the front down 2 3/4". With the rear I got a little from the wheel swap and the street tire has a little lower profile than the knobby. I used Soupy's lowering links on the rear so it is pretty close the same drop as the front. I need to recheck it but I think I have the seat height down to 32 1/4". I also raised the shock spring collars up. My wife weighs about 120 pounds.

I was out riding it around scrubbing in the new tires for her, it's a service I provide. Of course I look like a circus bear on the bike now. I'm 6'2" and 250 pounds. I didn't bottom anything out or rub the rear tire on anything while I was riding it. I was taking it down some nice back roads at a good clip.

I still need to cover the seat pan with a Low Seat Concepts kit (It's supposed to be 3/4" lower than stock but the foam thickness looks about the same to me. They said they do tweak the foam mixture to your weight. So it's probably not going to be that comfortable for me anymore. Looks like the hardest part will be cleaning off the remaining stock seat foam residue. They used a lot of glue on that sucker.

-Later

It's hidden behind some factory paint - some pictures or article on this mod would be nice (hint to self).
