I have yet to remove any stickers on my CRF. But on past bikes, with my wife's hair dryer and GooGone, and really long fingernails, I have had very good results.

I waited until the sun warmed them up good and peeled them off with my finger nail. You could use a blow dryer to warm up and loosen the adhesive. Then I used a little Goo-Gone on a rag to remove any remaining adhesive and then hit it right away with Windex to keep the goo-gone from eating the plastic.

Those white trim bits and the white seat are sweet...fine job....is that white trim unique to asia....or maybe is it available in europe?
Only reds here in europe too

White looks nice!

Personally, this is the first bike Ive owned that isnt getting any cosmetic upgrades....I just dont see the point. Its gonna get dirty, dropped, scratched, broke, wrecked, tossed, and ridden. Ill get my luggage, my crash protection for the essentials, keep up with my mechanicals. Yeah its a 2013 but dual sports still look best after theyve seen some adventures rather than staying squeaky clean like the road bikes.

I may rattle can it some day? Haha

Little Red Piggy, as seen in not so famous or not so great videos like this one.

By all means don't confuse it with the BRP (Big Red Pig), the Honda XR650R.

Another Noob....

Greetings from just another Noob. I have a CRF on order...should be in my garage by 01/12 or so. I have been lurking and learning for a couple of months and appreciate the knowledge base. I have been pre-farkling and have a closet full of stuff just itching to be installed (Flatland skid plate and radiator guard, Manrack, Wolfman E12's, handguards etc). I have ridden street bikes for 30 years and always wanted something to leave the pavement. I looked at sooooo many dual-sports and just couldn't pull the trigger. I took a ride on a CRF and believe I found what I was looking for!

Welcome to the party Irish, Christmas is coming a little late for you this year…. congrats on your new bike, have fun getting off the beaten paved path, beware though it's like crack and can become very addicting.




Thanks ry, glad you like, it's supposed to be a little funny…. can't take life too seriously now can we?

-Finn
