Paper filter? That would relegate it to street only use where I live. Dust, dust, and more dust. Good to know the FI can be remapped, hard to believe on such a cheap bike. I drilled out the baffles on my XT225, and had to go up one jet size on both the main and pilot. I guess I'll keep it just for it's foam filter. The XT250 has a paper filter too. Don't they realize that a dirt bike needs a cleanable, reoilable filter?

Paper filter S$%ks

I wonder if the K&N filter for the CBR250R would work?

Here is a list of things available in Australia for the 250L, there are Moriwaki mufflers and full exhausts, with bash plate and radiator guards being made now, also looking at a foam air filter. Prices are AUD + 10% tax!

jealous. You ausies have it good! We probably wont see parts like this in the US for months if not a year... Unless that is if someone wants to start importing these??!!


BTW... Who/what is moriwaki? never heard of them and ive been riding for 20 years. The exhaust LOOKS nice but its hard to tell much until seeing one in person. Any of you ausies have exporting experience?

Thank you.

I have never got less than 70 mpg with my CRF250L. It's very fuel efficient.

Most of the parts for our bike on crfs only are either universal or made for other bikes and just happen to fit. I'm talking about model specific gear like a rear rack, bash guard, exhaust, etc...

It will take the aftermarket some time to catch up with real accessories and parts.

Most off the stuff listed by red1 is available direct from your Honda dealer however most of it is rubbish the engine guard is a complete waste of time , the exhaust from morawaki is imported from japan and is well overpriced also the lowering kit is also from japan and people have found other ways to lower it at a fraction of thecost as said USA has the most and easiest access to aftermarket parts for this bike with parts appearing on Internet sites daily

Hi All Picked mine up on Sept 1 and been enjoying quit a bit ;) Reason for purchase was the weight a dual purpose capability; last Aug I purchased a new EB FC Airstream and missed the fact I could ride while camping in many places. I'm a true die hard Honda rider and have owned many over my 30 yrs of riding. Will post some picks soon.

Couple Question for other owner:

  • Did your come with a owners manual?
  • Vibration - What is vibrating on the front?
  • The 1k valve check - Is this something easy to do, im very handy just wanted to know the scale 1-10 for a DIY.


Anyone else from Jersey?



Thanks

Owners Manual a full toolkit - check
Front vibration is most likely the tires. Mine (after 500km) hums noticably around 40mph +
I haven't done the valve check on the CRF yet, but its easy to do once you get to it on the CBR. I suspect the CRF will be quite a bit easier.

What up Homeboy,

I am not from jersey, but I work in Mahwah, from Orange county NY. The owners manual should be under your seat. you can take off the seat with the allen key provided in the tool kit wich is in the locked compartment on the left side of your bike. it's the two luggage rack bolts that go into the seat.

I'm in the Philly burbs. Grew up in jersey.

Answers to your ?'s

-manual is under seat
-mine has no vibes. Check plastics bolts
-hard to tell not knowing your aptitude but it's not rocket science. Definitely buy the service manual.


Enjoy the bike.
