I tried to ask about this before, hoping to get some input.

I need to get a skidplate, how do you guys feel about this one versus a traditional skidplate that doesnt have the engine gaurds? Some skid plates wrap up and around a little bit so I dont know if this will actually help anything.

Are you making a rear shock specific to the CRF250L? Anything for the front suspension?

Looks like the "low" version of the Seat Concepts seat is now for sale for the CRF250L.

Ordered mine this evening. Merry Christmas to ME!!

I'm A huge fan of the protection that bulky skid plate provides.
Question, for those of you running 1 1/8s" bars What throttle set up are you using ?

I just performed my first valve adjustment thanks to the confidence Lost rider's write up gave me. Pretty straight forward. I did the oil change as well. Only one valve was out of adjustment. The total cost for the maintenance was $26 and change. That included the feeler gauge, Oil, filter and one new shim. BTW shim was free haha. Thank you Lost Rider!!

1 1/8" or 1 3/8" bars taper down to 7/8" diameter so all your controls will work. The triple clamps require the proper adapter bar mounts for the increase in bar diameter.

* EDIT*

I thought they were like the KTM risers that clamp to triple tree...





I used these ROX risers 7/8" OEM Bar Mount to Use 1 1/8" Bars. ProTaper KX High bars on Nancy's LRP, look back in this thread for more.
