I've had quite few all day on highway rides, to get to and from the trails, 60-75 is no issue at all for me. With a 13t sprocket, 60mph going uphill, 70-75 on flat roads with no headwind. The motor is very smooth for a 250 single, the seating position is comfy(with risers/higher bars and an Airhawk seat pad), and even with full on knobbies (balanced) it's pretty stable. Top speed downhill with tailwind was 93MPH indicated, (probably more like 85 actual).






roundtripping: I would help with the measurement but the LRP is at Bazzaz getting poked and prodded....



Go LRP!

Can it be rotated upward on the shaft splines? Also thinking about one of the aftermarket folding levers.

Does anybody know if this shift lever will work on the LRP?

I experienced the same issue with my Tech 8's. I ordered the folding shift lever from Bestdualsports and it fits on a little higher on the spine raising the lever about 1/4 inch eliminating the problem.

LRP with my 230 lbs has seen an indicated 80mph passing and will do 60 easy no stress and still do even more just fine.

I resemble that remark.

Hey Lost,
I am really enjoying this thread, alot of great info on here. I got a CRF 250 L a couple days ago and I am really liking it.. a couple of questions for ya:
Which Airhawk pad are you running?
Also I am looking at risers and bars for my LRP.
Did you have any issues with cable lengths for your Rox 1.5" risers?
Also curious about the bazzaz mapping!

Here it is... stock so far with a GL Fandango tank bag. Great bike

Nice!

Welcome to the club!

We're running the AIRHAWK Cruiser Pillion pad, depending on how big your ass is, it works very well. I have a couple Medium Cruiser pads for other bikes and would use them on the LRP if I wasn't a skinny Euro sized guy...

http://www.therohostore.com/Products...ERPILLION.aspx

No issues with cable lengths with the ROX risers and KX High Protaper bars, though I do reroute the clutch cable to the rear of the triple clamp. i think I posted about it way back when I did it, you can do a thread search if need be.

I'm also curious about what Bazzaz will do for the LRP, if past experience is any indication it will be a substantial improvement. Bazzaz is a highly respected FI tuner, the only one I'd consider to put on my bikes after getting to know the guys in the R&D department and seeing their shop. These guy live it.
I will be out of town until the 11th, when I get the LRP back I'll be sure to share my experiences. I believe Bazzaz will be doing the testing/tuning with an aftermarket slip-on pipe, and I have done the cost free air box mod, opening up the intake, so I'll need to decide if I keep the OEM exhaust or go with the slip on they used to tune the bike.
I HATE loud bikes, it's a nuisance to everyone and doesn't help promote our sport to non-riders and is very counter productive to helping keep our trails open. It will be a hard decision and only if there's DB-killer quiet inserts available for what they use will I consider keeping it...
Either way an improvement in power at a low cost with little effect on reliability or the option to choose maps for better MPG when getting Lost is good by me.




More LRP action!~

These recent photos aren't of me, but a rider on a Lost fly and ride tour riding the LRP so I can't comment on the riding gear. What I wear personally is listed on my website, and there's various threads in the Equipment Forum about Rukka gear.


This is me on the LRP.

First Post on CRF Thread

Hi everyone!

You're gonna make my wife divorce me! It's been 3 days and nights that I'm going through this insane 235 pages! Finally I'm done!

During the 3 days that I was reading this thread, here's my progress:
- I made a downpayment for a CRF, the delivery is probably mid March latest.
- Made a list of what I will put on the bike (farkles farkles!!) Actually I made two according priorities.

and now I'm dying because neither I have something left to read on the forum, nor I have the bike!!

Anyway here is my list:

by the way I'm 178cm (I think thats 5'10) 83kg, will be riding both in the city as commuter, and off road all weekends, but I'm preparing the bike offroad oriented!

Priority #1
- ManRack Utility Rear Rack
- FlatLand Radiator Guard
- FlatLand or Emperor Skid Plate (couldn't decide any help appreciated)
- Rox Elite Pivoting Risers 2"
- ProTaper Contour KX High Bend (or a rental bar, just because red would look great, again not sure)
- Pro Taper Pillow Top Grips

- HighWay Hand Guards (I think those are providing the best protection, but I don't like the look and shape of the plastics and the straight look of the bars when looking from the front, maybe I didn't see enough photos with the correct angle? But still confused about the handguard matter...
- Regular Foldable Mirrors (RAM) or Highway HG mirror addition but honestly I don't beleive that those will perform well.

- 13t Front Sprockets
- Speedo DRD Calibrator
- Foldable Gear Lever
- Yoshimura Fender Eliminator and some smaller LED front and rear blinkers (any recommendations?)
- Steel braided brake lines front and rear

Priority #2:
- FMF Q4 Exhaust
- FMF MegaBomb Header
- FI Mapper EJK or equivalent
- 42t Rear Sprocket (if need felt)

Priority #3: (If I decide that the bike is a keeper, and decide to not sell it for sure)

- Seat Concepts (carbon gripper red)
- Race Tech rear shock and I don't know where can I tune the front fork here in Turkey

and the worst part is that in my stupid country any shipment with a value above 80$ is hold at the customs and kept mandatory for stupid custom fees like %65 so my only option is to wait to have friends visiting USA, so that they can bring the parts to me. Some EBay sellers understand the situation and declare lower values for international shipments but I think that's a low possibility with these kind of companies? (I'm afraid to ask them since some of them acts and responds as if it's a fraud but I don't see it that way considering the unfair reasons the government does that!) anyway thanks in advance for all the help and guidance!

I have DRC led markers and DRC tail light with DRC eliminator kit. bought them form Wheeling Cycle Supply if you are concerend about the blinkers blinking fast you will need the IRC Relay to make them blink at stock speed. that IRC relay just replaces the stock relay. if you dont care about fast blinkers then you dont need it.

CRF250L Topspeed

Have my lrp now for about 3 months and done just over 1600 hassle free km with it. Had to get to a meeting yesterday that was like hurry up & wait, like you rush like mad to get there on time (lack of proper planning on my part) just to find out that theres another meeting running late before yours. Anyways, I was pleasantly surprised when the lrp was barreling along at an indicated 149 km/h (92.6mph) on a downhill section with me ducking down. I know the speedo over reads by a good few km but it still felt plenty fast. In town and through the traffic I prefer the lrp over my XR650L and the R80 airhead, its just about the perfect little runaround.

Got a question. To fill the tank, it looks like the zipper unzips from the front left, down the side, then at the rear unzips further from L to R allowing the tank bag to flop to the left for gas cap access. If the bike is on the sidestand, does the tankbag want to flop back into place while filling the tank? Since the CRF has those silly bars across the fill hole, I use 2 hands on the gas filler to make sure the gas flows into the tank and not all over everything. Any commentary on your experiences fueling with this tank bag?
