there's just no way that the Yamaha is worth $3000 more . I just can't see it!
That is a good price on the CRFL otd, and a total shit price on the WRr... I am not sure I would want to deal with that Yamaha dealer. That type of price difference does make the CRFL a no brainer

Had a minor issue recently. My LRP had been sat in the garage for 2-3 weeks and refused to start when I tried firing her up. It didn't feel like a battery problem as she turned over fine just didn't want to start...so I rolled it down a hill in gear and popped the clutch. To my delight she roared to life. I took her for a 15 minute spin and all was well.

After that I locked her up again and went on a 2 week holiday (to Cirali and Kas - Mediterranean...V nice ). I went down to the garage yesterday morning and started her first time.

What could have been the cause for her not to start?

Probably the gas. Maybe let it idle for a few seconds before shutting it of next time if you know it'll sit for a while. Fuel injected motors shouldn't really be bothered by that though.

Also the battery need to deliver enough voltage to run the pump/injectors.

That happened to me last winter. We had it nasty here, not able to ride for weeks on end. I followed the advice on page 26 (engine does not start) in the owner's manual, and it didn't work. I used my left thumb to push the start button, and gave it a little throttle with right hand. It started, and kept the revs up, and it settled in. Haven't had problems since, riding just about every day now. I was running Stabil at the time also.

Now an owner not a wannabe

Just picked up my CRF250L this afternoon, it's the first brand new bike (or car) that I've ever owned, as soon as I got underway I couldn't help but have a giggle, It's like riding a little push bike in comparison to my Africa Twin!

Did a max of 70MPH on the way home and it didn't complain but I'll have to get used to using the gears a bit more than I do with the twin but that's not really surprising given the size of the engine.

I've got the Adventurespec kit all ready to fit to it but I won't have the time for this until next week where I plan to get some grease on the axles and pivots before I start using it on a regular basis. ( http://www.adventure-spec.com/defaul...0l-bundle.html )

The reason I've bought this fun little bike is to use through the winter as my main mode of transport (I don't have a car and the twin is a heavy lump to pick up when I drop it in the snow) and also maybe get a little green laning done when time allows.

Looking forward to racking up the miles on this lovely bit of kit.

For sale

I was coming through town today (Gillette WY) and saw a 2013 with 225 miles on it for sale. Of course I stopped and

checked it out. It is stock except for a lowering link. They want 4500 firm. I of course already have mine now with over

4000 miles on it so I am not interested.

Newbie!

Newbie to the forums from the east coast. Have had my 2013 CRF for a year and 3 weeks. First bike I have had since I was 12. Fun to drive and great on fuel. Been ran off the road a few times by non driving women in SUVs, the knobbies have saved me from wreckin. I have right at 7300 miles on it as of today. New tire about to be delivered tomorrow by UPS. Here she is.....no good pics but it's my DD so I'm rarely off it enough to take a pic.
