Clutch update

Just an update on my clutch issues.

When i had the clutch go the first time i only replaced the friction pad plates this caused slippage because the steels in between needed replacing too. This time i done booth the steels and the plates and also used heavy duty springs from CRG in Thailand. So far so good and i havent had any slippage yet.

I used stock honda plates and soaked them in oil over night before the install.

I am one inch taller and same weight and I rock this crf250l every where. But I keep my speed low has to have plenty of throttle left to over take a situation if needed. Hwy speed is 62-65mph. Not much throttle pass that. Also climbed a grade at over 65mph with some tuck and 5th gear strung out. Also had camping gear on board.

CRF250L Super Moto

Project to get my wife on a Super Moto so we can go riding together. I have a Suzuki DRZ400SM. The trick was to get it down to her inseam.

DID:

Warp 9 wheels with a 44 tooth sprocket (Yes, I had to get a new chain!).
110 front tire (the forks are 4 3/4" wide at the seal area, a 120 tire is 4 3/4" wide. At least on my DRZ).
Trimmed the front fender so it looked more Moto.
You need to trim the inside of the fork guards for tire clearance.
Raised the forks up.
Rox Risers (had to flip the throttle, cables under, for some slack.
Cycra hand guards.
Seat Concepts seat (my first upholstery job!)
Yoshimura fender eliminator (kept the wiring modular like the stock set up with a 6 pin molex plug).
140 rear tire (had to trim and adjust the chain guard with a heat gun for clearance).
Soupy adjustable lowering link (ran it out to 5", Soupy said not to exceed 5 1/4").
Galpher brake lines.
LED flasher relay for rear LED turn signals (plug and play, located near the horn).

Need to DO:

Install gizmo to correct speedometer error.
Install adjustable Zeta levers to help out with small hands.
I need a shorter shift lever (if any one has a source, love to hear from you).
More fire power for rear tail light and turn signals (may have a solution on the way).
Get foot welded to kick stand.
New mirrors (it's me).
A new exhaust (maybe she won't notice!).
Readjust the chain. (I don't think I need the stock slack number since the swing arm is almost parallel, it seems too loose and noisey).

That should about do it. I think it will be finished.
Oh and I need to talk her into this graphics package:

It's perfect, then. If you were taller and doing more hard-core off-roading, the WRR might be a better fit. But for moderate DS and normal to short inseams, the Honda is pretty awesome.

I'm 150lb and cruise at 70-75. It has a lot of power at 60mph, so you shouldn't have any trouble cruising 60-65. It's geared tall, so for your weight and use I'd suggest throwing a 13/42 sprocket set on it right away. Other than that, the stock tires and everything are perfect for what you are talking about. I commute 50 miles (total) every day, and get into lots of fire roads and double-track, with occasional gnarly off-roading. The LRP eats it all up. It's not a street bike or a dirt bike, but it does both, gets 65mpg, and is only $4500... can't beat that!

Photo Time!

First (chilly) ride:



The whole family wants in on the action. Three Little (Red) Pigs!



New bikes should not stay that way:



This is part of my commute, if I have a little extra time.



Commuting can be hazardous, you know.



This happens a lot. I got sick of broken and bent levers quickly. They are only $10 a pop, but it makes it hard to get home sometimes.



Let the farlkling begin! Cyra CRM handguards fit great, and provide a lot of protection for my hands. I am much warmer on chilly commutes now, and they should keep me from destroying any more levers.





Thai food, on a Thai bike, in very Thai style. Except I wasn't in shorts and flip-flops. Who says it's not practical?



Exploring my new house in-progress.

Picked up a used CRF250L



What a great motor, it has the torque I expected from the WR! It is so quiet, kinda funny when you "hear" the motor, look down to find you are going way faster than you should

Any news on a larger tank for the Honda?

Congrats Sanjoh. Sarah is absolutely loving her CRF. You are right it has great torque and doesn't require winding out like the WRR motor.

IMS is first working on around a 3.1 tank. Latest news is they are about 2-3 weeks out?

From a buddy of mine that has been talking to them.

Rcvd a call from IMS, tank mold is done they are working on the placement of the brass inserts. Maybe 2 weeks.
