At this point I am getting around 19-20km's per litre- from where I live I can still do awesome rides without having to carry any extra fuel. I tweaked the EJK to 1.5/1.5/2.5 (instructions from EJK) and my fuel efficiency is not far off what it was without the EJK, but the power has certainly improved. I might pop off the seat and add a bit more fuel to the acceleration stage if I'm going to do some aggressive off road, but for now the bike is going fantastic. I still have the stock tires and had an amazing 4 hour ride along gravel roads leading to Mt. Karioi (NZ), it was raining and the roads were mainly greasy clay. No worries! I've done this ride on a TTR250, DR650 and a KLR650. The CRF250L (aka RECON 1) beats all of them for fun and control. Love it! Rear tire is just about gone....what to put on next.....

It seems you can get a bit more power from the 250L by using the ECU module from the CBR 250. Also maybe change the throttle body too, using the larger CBR 250 one. I haven't done this but here's a link to the article. http://www.motorcycle.in.th/forum/vi...showtopic=5208

This was taken on the day I got it. It's almost obscene how clean it is. It still REEKS of "new motorcycle" smell. It's a brand new 2014. And it's disgusting.

Drove my new 2014 CRF250LE home two days ago from the dealership in Courtney. Have about 150 kms on it now. Real nice. It has stalled once and I have read on this forum that there has been some problems with this. Will have to see if this will be issue. I read somewhere on here that maybe the idle screw has to be adjusted higher?

Mine would backfire and stall on almost every ride at first. Someone suggested the computer needed to "learn" or some such. Anyway, it doesn't do it any more now (dang, probably jinxed it now). I never fiddled with anything on it.

Good shot of the Ricochet / Utah plate and water pump coverage.


And the stupid simple to install, Flatlands rad guard.

might want to put a little rubber tape around the mounting points for that skid plate, mine has developed a noticeable buzz at certain RPM

I don't know if this is bs or what, just a thought...

Yes it is total BS! Same settings..

Looks like the Dowco is more bang for the $ than Wolfman. Did it just strap under the rack?

New to adv and Trying out bikeracks tail rack

Hello yall. wanted to say thank you to every one in this forum all of your posts have been crucial to helping me decide to purchase my brand new 2014 crfl. i have in the last 2 weeks ridden 1500 miles on it and very much enjoying it. i live in central texas where the speed limit on the roads can get to 85 mph (i haven't had to ride that stretch yet) but my normal commute (60 mile R/T) is painless and comfy as this bike will do those speeds in most cases very comfortably. i am new to off road riding and am still building my confidence in rough terrain and sandy conditions. my previous bikes have been street bikes with the acceptation of a 73 KE175.

now a couple of questions.

UHas any one had any experience with the bikeracks brand I have tried to search the forum but have not been able to find any thing of significance. I have ordered one and will see how it works out.
And I was thinking of replacing my tires with some Kendall brand tires that are rated 50/50. As I am quickly burning through the factory originals. Any suggestions? I am not a fan of the tires that look like street tires (only concerned with the off road traction there) again any suggestions are appreciated and thank again for all the helpful information.

Oh one other question what happens if you do not adjust the valves?
