Try unclipping your O2 sensor, that stopped my stalling which was happening frequently ( after I installed the EJK tuner). Also, check out ThumperTalk forum, there is an excellent stalling thread that discusses several fixes.

Another comment: the team at EJK recommend removing the backfire screen on the air filter as well as pulling out the snorkel (after installing the tuner); can't hurt to try as you can always replace the snorkel and put in a new air filter.

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.
