I use a rack that I haven't seen listed in your post:



My bike is currently wrapped up because of rain and it's dark and cold outside, so I don't want to go outside and check, but from what I saw on the web it should be the one made by Kijima, and I believe it's in the official Honda customization catalogue.





They also sell a "Rallye 591", a Hepco and Becker luggage rack and one made by "Alpha Three" over here:

Looks like any kind of handguards on a stock bar will all controls in their stock location would need a fork clamp mount.
I've got stock bars, and went with the Cycra guards, I think from Amazon. They went on alright. You have to mount them loose, and then wiggle them around. I scratched up my bars a little doing this, but hey, pretty soon, there's going to be a lot more. You have to cut the left grip end off with a knife, and the right side, use a hacksaw or something to cut the plastic end off. It needs to be cut so that there's enough of the metal bar end showing or the throttle tube/grip will rub against the guard. I know, because, it did rub, and I had to cut more off, way easier to get at before the guard is there. I also had to trim some of the plastic of the right side, to allow the throttle cables to go through. I hadn't done these before, but if you just take your time, I'm thinking maybe 45-60 minutes. It's the sort of thing where if you do another set right after to another bike, you could do it in half the time. I only went with Amazon because I had gift cards. I think they were around $100.54. CRFs only has them too, maybe you can shop around. They don't clamp to the fork, it's to the bars, real tight but not touching the tops of the forks. I think Amazon, but came from Powersport Superstore. Cycra Probend CRM.

For those interested in racks sold over here, here is actually a blog post with pictures and retail prices (though I found some of the racks for less with a quick search): http://clarinetvilla.blog112.fc2.com...entry-239.html

From top to bottom:

Kijima 13,650 Yen
Rally 591 13,440 Yen
Alpha Three Type A 19,950 Yen
Alpha Three Type S 13,650 Yen
Thai Honda 8,400 Yen
Riding Spot 10,290 Yen
Hepco & Becker 17,450 Yen

Apparently, the Rally 591 and Alpha Three Type A are made out of aluminium.

Yes it would be a good first DS for you Jim, or just about anyone that wants to get off more traveled roads.


You should come out here for a fly and test ride.... bring beer.

I've got them fitted up, $45 special from Cyclegear, cheaper to buy local than to have shipped from amazon. Will take a pic and post this eve. I had never done it before and after watching 2 youtube videos and getting the right tools assembled for the project, it might have taken half an hour. I have the bars with the plastic deflectors attached to them. Once you mentioned the triple clamp i assume that's what your interested in. BTW, after 2 missions afield i will be replacing my stock bars some day next week with Protaper KX high and their 7/8" to 1 1/8" adapter. That possibility from the outset is what led me to choose such an inexpensive first set of guards.

Link to stock bar with "value" hand guards mounted up. I apologize in advance if I have made an error in configuring this.

Excellent. I have some foam padding on the crossbar and totally forgot they would clamp pass the crossbar

Keep the pics coming!

I decided to get my GF a 250L after our Alaska trip this summer.

She is 5'5 with midget legs.

Pretty confident that she will love the bike.

Now for me though. Should I get a 250L or a WR? Im 6'4, with enough inseam to flat foot any bike.

After looking around, I wish they would bring the white crf to the US. I am not fan of having no other colors than red.

We will use the bike for adventuring and trail roads.

For you, I would say get the WR. It has a little bit more power and a taller seat height. You can also buy white or black plastics for the WR.
