Took about a half hour to put it back together. I should be able to do it much faster next time.

Apparently I put it all back together correctly, the bike's running good and performed very well on local single track, the Ortega Trail.

Go LRP!

Nice. That seems like a simple job and one that shouldn't need to be done very often either.

Nancy seems to be doing great. My wife has fear issues so I doubt she will do most of the trails your wife does. My son will thou.

That sure looks fun and your photos are great quality.

For those of us running Sta-Bil, a standard prescription medication bottle filled 1/4" from the top holds 10 tsp (49.28 ml), and just tucks in the "toolbox" compartment if you lift up on the plastic a bit. Not sure if the ethanol treatment formula is compatible with that plastic or not, I only run the original fuel stabilizer. I left it tipped over to see if it would leak, and it didn't. And before Rumpleguruskin can comment, I doubt it would be compatible with toluene.

Actually Honda directs you to Helm and I had to call to order it (1-888-292-5393) it wasn't on the web site when I ordered it so I had to talk to a rep. The information to order one is in the owners manual in the section entitled 'Authorized Manuals' (pg 113) the p/n is 61KZZ00

Thanks for the info.

My dealer will order one for you(from Helm I would bet). You skipped the middle man and went to the source(the printer)... Sweet!

yes a dealer would do that, never gave any thought as to skipping a middle man or whatever as the owner manual directs one to order from Helm, - if you're gonna make a phone call, just make one to Helm

besides i believe that i was among the very first purchasers of bike in colorado (ramz might have been the first) and the dealer was pretty limited as to knowldge, parts etc about the bike in fact I don't think you could get the manual when i bought it....

Thanks!

I ordered the service manual at time of purchase from my local Honda dealer, took about a week to get it.

Well... my SPOT Connect is currently for sale in the FM.



Used it on my recent Baja 1000 pre-run solo ride for two way communication, works just as advertised, the iOS app interface is great to use too. I'm happy with it, the service plan is pricey, but two way communication from anywhere when I'm riding alone is good insurance and comforting for my family. For me and how I like to ride the cost is worth it.


To stay back on topic...

Just saying...

For those of you who are having difficulty changing the rear sprocket because of stripped bolts you might want to try this option? I was recently forwarded an email about products to help remove the seized studs on my car's turbo charger. This email suggests one of the best products out there is Liquid Wrench however make your own mind up as I have no vested interest, I'm just saying...

*Penetrating oils ........... Average torque load to loosen*
No Oil used ................... 516 pounds
WD-40 ..................... ... 238 pounds
PB Blaster .................... 214 pounds
Liquid Wrench ...............127 pounds
Kano Kroil .................... 106 pounds
ATF*-Acetone mix............53 pounds


The ATF and Acetone mix was 50/50.

New 250L Owner

I am the new owner of one of these babies, and so far loving it. Wouldn't you know that winter has arrived with a vengeance in the few days since I picked it up. First forays onto the dirt in some years. I also ride a BMW f800ST. I plan to use the bike to explore the numerous dirt roads and trails in central Oregon. Appreciate the forum and learning about this new bike!
