I believe they are.

EJK, Dobeck's company, offers a discount for qualified buyers:
http://www.electronicjetkit.com/productdiscounts.asp

I know lots of veterans who ride...

That's very stand-up of EJK.




PS Even forum users can get a discount...

Any volunteers?
They make an awesome skid plate and radiator guard for the WR250R, so i'm sure they will have something shortly for the CRF.

Had a nice ride the weekend :)

My buddy with his klx250s and I went for a early enduro ride the weekend. Was totally worth it!
Saw elephant and warthogs.
Went up the to the lookout point very rocky elevated trail! Then we went for a ride along the old train tracks crossing the river a few times..

CRF250L vs XR600R

Hey, I was wondering if those CRF250L owners who used to ride XR600R can tell how riding these bikes feel in comparison. They weigh about the same, and I guess CRF is higher revving and gives better fuel economy, but does it feel way underpowered if you are making switch from XR600R ?

Are you serious???

You lose 20hp, lose a bunch of torque, gain 15 pounds, lose offroad and highway ability's.

There's about a 20 mpg loss with the XR600 and a huge loss of smiles per mile.

Wheelies??? Forget about it.

Your wallet will be lighter with the CRF. You can buy a bunch of gas for the XR with the cost savings. $2000 or more buys a ton of gas for the XR. The smiles come no charge.

It seems like every day there is more support (aftermarket parts) for the CRF250L coming online. That is a good thing. choice is good!

I emailed ManRacks to see if they had any of those nifty tie downs for the CRF forks? He sent me two different kinds and we have a winner.







Should make trailering/tieing down this little thumper easier for those that do.
I have no vested interest in ManRacks just a happy customer!
