Do you peel the whole tank off for fueling or can you access the filler when you unzip it from the base?

I had an old Nelson-Rigg magnetic tank bag kicking around that's to small for my FJR, tried it on my CRF. Bingo! Big enough to hold some useful stuff. Small enough to not get in the way standing on the pegs.

My old Joe Rocket Manta fits and sticks nicely but it is very small.

Gloves, wallet, cellphone, water bottle, and it's full

Fork oil type and amount for service

Hello,
I am new to this site and have had this 250L since March (in Thailand). I was wondering if anyone has located a service manual for it yet? I have had leaking fork seals since almost new and had a friend bring me some new seals back from the states. I would like to service the forks and replace the seals but am hesitant to try without a service manual. Even stock parts are almost non existent here. Mine is made in Thailand and customer support sucks. I tried Honda in Japan but they keep referring me to Honda of Thailand. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

This might help a bit. Would Honda Big Wing in BKK not assist you? I'd like to get hold of a service manual too.

Been out again, and I think I want a bashplate. I don't find the seat too uncomfortable, though I haven't done more than 200km on it yet in a day (yesterday about 60km in maybe two hours).

Anyways, is there any video up with a CRF 250 L and FMF Q4 exhaust, to check what it sounds like?

Ricochet ATV Armour is your friend in regards to the bashplate. Best Dual Sport Bikes have a video on their site in regards to the Q4 pipe.
