Can it be rotated upward on the shaft splines? Also thinking about one of the aftermarket folding levers.

Does anybody know if this shift lever will work on the LRP?

Since we just picked up our CRF250L, I can't say for sure, but I have yet to see a dual sport type bike where you couldn't adjust the shifter on the splines to give you some more room.

I generally find this is the case when you move to big MX boots, that you have to adjust the shifter to give your foot some more room.

I also learned recently a new trick that some boots have on them. Some boots have a small lip on their heal that is specifically there to allow you to stick your foot in front of the shifter and use your heal to up shift. It takes a bit of practice to get used to though.

My buddy has a pair like this and he does this a lot.

that's all the tools you get
remove the two tie down looking bolts at the rear of the seat and slide the seat back towards the rear and lift to remove.

Front forks

Was out riding the other day in some pretty good whoops and the front forks bottomed out, a bit of a pucker moment
Has any one re-valved the front shocks?
Would there be a problem to re-valve the front with out changing the rear shock at this point?

Could someone give me the website for the CRF250L, WR250R, and the KLX250S, latest comparison test. It was posted here, but I can't fine it and I've looked. It's the one where the Honda is picked best overall, I think it was 3-4 color pages. I want to send it to a friend who thinks his KLX250S is the best thing ever.
