I had already installed the EJK fuel programmer before I put on the Q4 and I would suspect that the programmer was giving as much or more performance boost than the pipe just by adding extra fuel to the engine. So it's really hard for me to say if just the Q4 was giving that much of a performance boost.
How about the fuel consumption with the tuner, better-same or worse? I am at 220km's and cruising around the back roads I am getting almost 27km's per liter so I am very happy so far!

Added Wolfman daytripper bags, Q4 muffler (stk pipe, runs perfect), Manrack. May change to a 13t front spocket. Trying to NOT spend too much on farkles! Removed fender/plate mount/light.....will figure how to mt plate when I get it.

Been riding offroad forever (I'm 52)---- broken back and hip has slowed me down, but I still want to ride! Great bike to putt around on, but also like to cover some miles offroad (just at a slower pace nowadays!). Love this bike so far!

(was going to post a pic or two, but I must need more posts for that)

Welcome to the forum. Post away!

I told them I would not pay any fees what so ever and wanted at least what my cash offer was on my bike, which I told them was $4200. They gave me 4250 trade in and I threw $500 on top and it was done.

They are out to get you, so try to get them first
LMFAO, I give up, this thread has officially gone to hell.

Bought it today--RPM in Lakewood, CO. Mine was the third that they sold today. Jeff was the salesman--good guy. Very easy to deal with--excited about the new ride.

Biggest reason I picked RPM is they let you take a bike on a test ride (I wanted to see if I could hit 65 MPH--it did) and they did not try to tack on the extra 700 bucks that other dealers are trying to get.

Question to the guys in this thread who live in Florida...

What are you seeing as far as OTD prices go? Kind of want to know what to expect when I move out there and pick one up in May.

bought one of these a couple weeks ago for my wife, sorry, but no pics yet. kind of an analog guy still. so far she loves it. i threw on some cycra handguards and modified the airbox. a bit of a difference there. i have an ejk tuner, an fmf exhaust, a 13t, and a richocet skid plate to bolt on as soon as she passes her dmv test. this will be a good addition to the stable. the bike is very mellow in stock form, kind of reminds me of one of their generators. no muss, no fuss, runs forever. love the site, been lurkin for a bit before joining as i usually dont have anything intelligent to add. lookin forward to a good summer on the trails with my girl.

Question about Cyras and pivot risers...

I just got this question mark on my head...

My Cycras with the front triple mount kit is on the way, also my ROX 2" Pivot Risers with Protaper Contour CX HighBend bars

But the question is when the handlebars are 2" high with the risers, but the CYCRA hand guard center connections are not on the bar directly but connected by the triple mount kit, would they remain lower in the centre??

Anyway, managed to get this ordered from France today, as Arrow UK don't stock it.


Hello Forum, Hello lccpmj - greetings from germany

I owned the Arrow-Exhaust for my baby.
Current the Arrow-Exhaust is the only one, you can get here in Europe.
Only Leo Vince has planned to fabricate a muffler for the CRF250L, but it's not available at present.

Yesterday I've installed the muffler and opened the riding season 2013
Quality, look and sound are really good.

I can't tell you about fuel consumption firsthand as I've never checked the mileage and I don't have many miles on my bike yet anyway. But it seems like I read somewhere that with the EJK, you could expect around a 10% reduction in fuel mileage with it installed. That seems logical since it's job is to allow more fuel all the way across the rpm range.

Captain Kickstart.....welcome to the forum! Where did you get those cool looking mirrors? They appear to be folding to get them out of the way when you don't need them offroad? Nice looking ride!!

Wondering if anybody has experience with burn problems with aftermarket exhausts on soft luggage. I have a Giant Loop Coyote bag and it drapes over the tail rack and rearward part of the seat, slants forward toward the passenger pegs. It seems the FMF and the Arrow have no temp guards. Probably makes no difference for day trips, but camping forays require the luggage.

Prices

I bought mine back in November for $4720 cash before local TTL with both an FMF exhaust and hand guards from Southern Honda in Chatanooga, TN. They were selling stock bikes at that time for $3997. I see now they have them listed at $4197.

My experience was excellent. I had some issues with my Ultimate MX Hauler (first time in use), and one of the guys in the service department spent about 30 minutes helping me get it sorted out. He definitely went above and beyond. The only negative was the dealership was having a test ride day, and it took longer to get the bike paid for and keys in hand than going during the week would have.

I need to look into this thread for what the aftermarket has available.
If you are looking for a more aggressive dirt bike that is lets say 75% dirt and 25 % street go with the Yamaha. I have had my 250 L since August and I love it. Depending own your talent level and what you want to do the Yam and the Honda are both good bikes. I see guys spend big bucks to get their Honda suspension on par with the Yam or other more dirt oriented bikes. The Honda is a great valu but it does have limitations. You get what you pay for.
