I like it that Honda take many Parts out of the big box .

I need a new Helmet lock for my XR 250 Part No. 50710-KCZ-J71 Price from a australia Website 36,70 AUD
Plus shipping &Tax .

Now i get a Helmet lock for the CRF 250L today Part No. 50710-KCZ -J71 from the local Honda dealer here in Thailand Price 600 Baht thats half the Price , no shipping or Tax .

Rims , Breaks and some other Parts looks like they will fit both bikes .

Just order the steering stem and Top brige for the CRF 250 L for 2790 Bath thats 84 AUD compare to 667 AUD in Australia .

I like that Bike even i maybe never buy one . It reduse my Spare part costs a lot .

If anyone out there knows where I can get an owners manual in English (PDF would be great) please advise.
Here's what I found in my CRF250L Owner's Manual.

61KZZ00 -- 2013 CRF250L Service Manual
31KZZA00 -- 2013 CRF250L Owner's Manual

Order on-line: http://www.helminc.com
Order Toll Free: 1-888-292-5393
(Credit Card Orders Only)
Mon-Fri 8am - 6pm EST

----------------------------------------

I looked on Helm's web site and neither of these manuals are listed. I have ordered manuals from Helm for years, and I know that they often don't show new model-year manuals right away on their web site. So I called the number I usually call when looking for new manuals: 1-800-782-4356. The lady said they did not have the Owner's Manual yet, but the Service Manual was available for $49.95 + $6 S&H. I was quick to order the Service Manual and she said it would be 7-10 days, but in my experience, it will be more like 5 business days.

I also asked her to check for the CRF250L Parts Catalog, and she said it was not available yet.

The Owner's Manual may also be available electronically on the HRCA web site, but it's not updated to accept 2013 models when you sign up. C'mon Honda, get it together.

I would be willing to scan a few pages of the Owner's Manual and post them, but not so many as to violate copyright. Fair use rules allow a few pages to be copied. The Service Manual will be much more useful. It has a Maintenance chapter that includes everything shown in the Owner's Manual and more. RED1 kindly posted a bunch of pages from this very chapter: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...740737&page=46

My bike came in today (two days late) and I'll be picking it up tomorrow morning. Can't wait! Will take some pics this weekend. fwiw I'm a total beginner on dirt (not a beginning rider though, been riding street for ten years including track riding) so my ride report will be worth a little but not as much as an experienced dirt rider.

We have been told in Oz that we will be able to source a larger capacity dual sport, do not know what size or when!

WA dealer got one

Was touring the WA coast and riding the legal beach parts on my 230L the past 2 days. I stopped at South Sound Honda and sat on the new CRF250L. Nice, nicely done. Feels big, especially after finishing 225 miles in 2 days on my 230L. The big-framed 250L feels like it needs a 450 motor. Still however am a fan of the little 230L in tight mountain singletrack riding. But definitely that CRF250L would have been nicer for the touring and beach sand riding that I did.

i wonder how this bike compares to my first ever real bike, a 1984 honda xl125s.... best bike ive ever owend, i got it in 2002, with 300 miles on the clock. it was still brand new, the original owner, had it sealed inside a shipping container. and had done all the preventive stuff to it. it was basicaly like buying a brand new 1984 honda xl125 s in 2002. i loved that bike.
