I like them. They are advmonster model 44s. This is the fourth bike they have been on. I can't run them much in the dark...they really piss other drivers off. I use them mostly for daytime conspicuity and trail rides during twilight.

Is that the RotoPax storage pack? Are you satisfied with the amount of goodies you can cram in it? I've got an older 1.25G rotopax gas can...and the storage pack looks interesting.

Have u had any issues with the red gas can (also 1.25G) filler leaking?

Thanks
Yes. National Cycle Spitfire. It works well. I used it on my DR-Z where it fit and looked a little better.

Yes. Rotopax storage pack. I'm a little disappointed with the room in it. Not quite as much as it appears, but it is secure and convenient. It has room for two tubes and tire tools with room to spare.

I haven't put gas in it yet and I hope it doesn't leak. Most people are happy with them. This is 1.75 gallon size

Need a good laugh??? Read the following quote from the CRFL owners thread.

Follow the link and share your thoughts... It's only fair....

Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit?

Has anyone installed a Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit? If so, how do you like it? Is it easy to install?

Here is the inside. That is a front tube stuffed under the ledge. There is room for a rear tube In between that and the center post. These are heavy duty tubes...regular duty would obviously fit better.

Another prospective owner here with a couple of questions for 250L owners.

Anyone here ridden both the CRF230F and the 250L? I have the 230F and like the engine but the suspension, handling and 80% of full size bike are really getting to me.

Does the 250L have a more compliant suspension setup (basically softer, the 230 is massively overdamped) Less twitchy, and physically larger?

I'm 175lbs 6' with a 33" inseam and the 230 is borderline minibike to me.

Put simply, swap it out you will be happy.

To elaborate, see here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=818809

Good info and links in that thread.

The best way to search:

1) Go to www.google.com
2) Type the following into the search bar site:advrider.com
3) Follow that up with what you want to find

Example site:advrider.com crf230l vs crf250l


I discovered this not long ago- amazing!

I'm in the process for writing a detailed post about how the engine controller and all the sensors work and diagnois for the backyard wrench can do.

Thats why you haven't seen CRFL owners attack my post.

I do look forward to reading this...hopefully it's info.that we don't "need" to know anytime soon, but, "good" to know, my FI expertise are slim ta none, but enjoy reading about it all....

I figured the best place to ask a question about the 250L would be in a thread where people actually owned them. I agree, lets keep with the friendly forums and save the swearing for Jo Momma.

Well that might sound sensible on the surface but may I refer you to post #2800, and #2804.
