You can make your own torque curve by multiplying the hp X 5252 and dividing by rpm. That gives torque in ft.-lbs.

All the torque in the world won't move your bike a flippin mm. It's not until torque turns the wheel that it does work. Then it becomes hp.

Do not use these if you go off road. I've had 2 on my DRZ and they bend super easy. Both times I bent one it ruined my weekend ride, the second time I also burnt up my clutch as I was stuck in 3rd in a OHV park. I would carry the stock one as a spare with your tools if you do get one.

I just replaced the 2008 CRF 230L with a '13 250L!

Alot bigger bike....it's TALL compared to the 230. I loved boting around town on it but way more torque on the 250...10 more MPG and very crisp throttle response due to the fuel injection (keihin) and the 4 vlaves.

Motor is buttery smooth (counterbalancer and roller followers) as the 230 was old technology but extremely durable.

I love this bike! So far...

cu,
Glenn.

Already ordering stuff before I even have the bike. Amazon (Motorcycle Superstore) has Neutec TUbliss 21/18 for $175.43, free shipping, subject to change at any time.

Ordered mine just a few minutes ago. I'm not expecting a Russell Day Long like my FJR has, but ANYTHING has to be better than the stock seat! My number one complaint about the bike.

Thanks for the heads up.

Has anyone tried to finance one of these bikes? I know their only about $5K, but I just don't have that laying around LoL. Just curious what its like payment wise, insurance, etc. I know there are many factors that vary the equation in that question, but just trying to get a general idea. I love the look of the bike, and i think it would be a great upgrade from my 2006 XT225. I might just hold off and save for a few months, but I have a car loan from Honda so I thought that might make getting a bike loan easier.

Credit unions!!!! They have the best rates even if your credit isn't the greatest. I've never had a dealership ever beat my credit union's rate. BTW, bankrate.com has an auto loan payment calculator. Also, dmv.ca.gov has a registration fee calculator.

Do you get an auto loan from them? Or just a private loan?

I put $1500 down and my payment is like $79 a month and insurance is something like $140ish a year. I save easily double that payment a month in gas by using it to commute. If you make the commitment to actually use it to go to and from work and run errands than the bike will work out being free :)
