CRF250L Super Moto nears completion.

I'm almost finished with the wife's bike. Next is some rework of the rear tail light and turn signals. Install the speedometer adjustment device (44 tooth rear sprocket). Also install the fuel injection "black box", won't tell the misses and see if she notices, shhhh.

The latest addition was the Yoshimura exhaust. I got a great deal on it from the dealer. 25% off because we bought the bike there. Can't argue with that. The main reason for the swap, other than it looks and sounds cool, was the 140 tire was rubbing the stock exhaust with the bike lowered.



I still had to put a spacer between the hanger and the muffler bracket to get some clearance.



At least now I can test ride it if I do some work to it. This is with me sitting on it. My wife doesn't compress it this much.



Here I am on the bike and I look fairly normal:


Side view, WHAT THE HECK MONGO!? I created a 250cc mini bike!


On our last ride my wife brought up a point about the bike. When she stalled it she couldn't restart it in gear with the clutch in. I just assumed that was standard, especially for a dirt bike. There you are on the side of a hill and you have to fish for neutral first before restarting? Would this be an easy mod to do? How would you go about doing it?

Thanks in advance.

It shouldn't be doing that, sounds like the side stand switch, but could be the clutch switch. Side stand info here. Improved method lower down, read the whole thing. Thanks Ramz. http://www.rickramsey.net/CRF250Lmod...idestandswitch

Guys, bit of a dilemma here. Currently have a 13 tooth front and a PC4 fitted. I'm going to order a 42 rear...and also considering a megabomb + fuel programmer. Will the mbomb/ejk provide noticable power gains or will my current set up + 42 rear be about the same? A lot of wedge at stake here...

i don't have the megabomb, but i do have the 13T along with DNA air filter. I put in the EJK programmer last week and yes, with out question you are going to notice the difference. i don't know if you are looking at the EJK but maybe starting with that before exhaust will make it easier on the budget. having the EJK even with stock exhaust is going to be a significant improvement, you'll want to change some of the EJK settings as it comes shipped with 'stage 1' instructions (meaning exhaust,header, air filter change).

That happened to me too on a recent ride. We had already removed the kickstand switch (thanks Ramz!) soooooo...

...like Sapb says it was the clutch switch: we jiggled the clutch wires around and then it started in neutral again. Yet another sensor to remove?

cheers

I am thinking of selling my CRF 250L. I haven't put it on craigslist yet, I figured I would see if anyone on here is interested. I am from Duluth, MN. It is in excelent condition no scratches or damage. It has just under 1200 miles. I take great care of my stuff so I have changed the oil at 50 miles, 400 miles, and 900 miles. The coolant has been changed once. I have thoroughly greased the suspension linkages and swingarm bearing. I own the bike outright and so I have a clean, clear, and ready to go title. I don't have a car at the moment so I will be selling this to help purchase one.

Here is what I have extra:
Rear Rack- $85
Seat Concepts custom seat black and red- $160
Richochet aluminum skid plate- $95
Flatland aluminum radiator guard- $50
13 tooth front sprocket- $20
Honda Service manual- $55
Magnetic tank/tail bag- $40

I would probably do better off by separating these extra items and selling separately but I would rather sell it as a package because I believe these items, minus the tank bag, are must have items in order to keep the bike safe and in good condition. I have both sets of keys and the original owners manual as well. I have done a lot of the tedius maintenance a new bike requires to insure longevity, and I am a perfectionist so no corners were cut in the process. I have put about 22 miles on dirt roads the rest of the miles are city and highway mix. I would like $4500 and can be contacted by P.M. on here.

I noticed that, but when you pull the clutch lever ALL the way in it will start. Try that before you go removing sensors and switches and doodads.

The CRF250L Owners thread

On ours the clutch switch was loose and would fall out of its place occasionally, the fix was to take a small screwdriver and spread the "forks" little plastic tabs that hold it in. I'd imagine a little silicone would do the trick too.
I understand folks that want to remove side stand switch, ours is still in and if it gets damaged on the trail I'll bypass it there, but the clutch switch is a good thing to keep from breaking the starter IMO.


Eekamouse,
I understand, I'm wondering if trimming the footrests a little to allow them to fold in more would help. Was looking at our yesterday and it seems it could be done. I don't think there's a major flaw per se, but they could fold up a little more to avoid bending things.
Nancy bent the shit out of the footrest bracket on her GS, (now there is a poor design) pivot pegs helped with making them square to the frame again without getting into surgery on the bike, maybe they would help yours.
