I am excited to see how they turned out! How do they feel height wise? You get the 1 3/8 or the 1 1/8?

Yeah, so when you get to a certain age, you can withdraw from an IRA at reduced penalty, and avoid monthly payments totally, then proceed to use up your children's inheritance. My personal record for most bikes owned at once was 4, most recently it was one at a time, until the LRP made it 2. Funny, since I got the CRF, it's the only one I've used, but if the weather was better, probably a different story. No place to ride legally at faster than what the CRF can do anyway, so why not keep it simple.

Stretches out the cockpit nicely height is great helps with stand up trail riding so much. Turn signals do not work as running lights. Btw those are the cycra front triple clamp mounts.

I should prob add that the bolts you need to attach the cycra triple tree front mounts are M8 1.25 55mm I picked some up at my local dealer he had them laying around. The cycra mounts don't come with longer bolts to attach them.

Another tip if you run front and rear led turn signals you will need a resistor to make them work I recommend the ones wheeling supply sells.

Hi guys I've been lurking this page/site for a long time now but decided to finally sign up. I just picked up my 250L last week and really like it so far but I will def be modding it as money comes in. I actually have a question about the Easton bars, just got them in the mail in the "woods bend" and was wondering if any cables/wires will need to be extended or re-routed? Thanks.

Above photo was taken while out playing on the back roads south of Raglan, New Zealand. Bike is now at 650kms on the clock and certainly has a bit more power. We will be adding the bashplate and FMF exhaust this week. Only negatives: can't stand the strange metal bars blocking off the fuel tank opening- why the heck are they there? To stop large objects falling in? Also, the chain adjustment marks, I'm used to having hash marks on both upper and lower, don't like the dot underneath. Doesn't feel very precise. Finally, I can still get the bike to stall (every time) when slowing down. Doesn't do it when riding aggressively, only when I get lazy and pull the clutch in while downshifting to a stop. The stalling has yet to show itself when hammering along the back roads so that is a positive. If I keep blipping the throttle as I down shift it doesn't happen. Still a great bike though!
