I installed the FI controller as well, have not made any changes to the setttings - it is well worth the money - that in conjuction with 13/42 gearing has really made a difference. My other half rode it and he couldn't believe the change from stock, and i quote him "I want one"

Not an owner - yet, but have any of you tried the all important mod of the Stearns ATV seat pad and how it fits the bike? Its definately an eyesore on a bike but made a huge improvement on my DR650 and of course the KLR cheap bastids consider it a must have!

Heated Grips

Anyone know what are good heated grips to get for winter commuting? I don't think they need to be real powerful, just enough to keep that edge off. I have never installed any on a motorcycle and have only used them on snow machines at for work but they made all the difference.

I think I'm gonna start saving for the power kit 1 with the Q4 and the foam filter. By that time I should have my bars and hand guards figured out and installed.

Suggestions on bars and hand guards from anyone that has done changes?

Emailed DRC about their awesome LED brake light kit that they make for other bikes, this is their response.

"Dear David,

We are developing Edge tail light kit for CRF250L right now. I will announce our web site as soon as the CRF250L tail light kit is a ready.

Thanks for your email and your inquiry, if you have any questions, please do let me know."

After that flap about the questionable dyno curve on that first set of numbers from BDSB, it looks like they are the real deal here for pumping up the 250L. I'm maybe more impressed at how quickly they got someone like Race Tech to jump in and address what I think was the biggest hurdle for the stock bike, the suspension. It's neat to see the bike progress, just like the WRR and KLX have morphed into much better off road bikes. All of these DS 250 bikes are probably just fine as delivered for many/most riders, but I love that we now have 3 really strong options from the big 4 Asian manufacturers.

I got some HBD hand guards and pro taper bars for my bike, I really like them, specially how the mirrors are integrated in the guard. check out my post on page 52 of this thread post #779 the second one from the bottom on the page, I have included pictures.

It looks like all the shortfalls are ironed out now. The airtime in that one pic speaks volumes.

Couldn't agree more. When the big four compete closely, the result is usually great machines.
Now, if somehow this could also get started in the 650cc class...

AXP skid plate

I sure hope those silly stickers come off. Otherwise, excellent piece! Did someone say Moose sells it in the USA?

Sent an email to Flatland Racing about skidplates and rad guards. Got the following response:

"We sure hope so, we just need to get our hands on one close enough by, and
long enough to develop the products. If you know anyone close to Kansas that
could help, we would give them a nice deal on some parts! Thanks for asking!"

Any volunteers?

Yeah I like that! You have any complaints so far? How many miles you put on with them?
