Just purchased a new 2013 CRF250L today. Need a ride back up to the dealership to pick it up.
I guess I'm allowed to post in this thread now ?

I have the full system so I can't say if the exhaust fits onto the stock header, but as for the heat shield/white plate it will not fit. Only the fmf system comes with a bracket to fit the stock muffler shield. However if you purchase the big gun header you can use the stock header heat shield.

Just finished a 500km trip where I rode down to do some recon work on a sheep/beef station behind National Park (north island, NZ). Bike is stock with the exception of a 13t front sprocket. To summarize: the crf250l ( aka "Recon 1") handled twisty back country gravel roads, tight/steep single sheep tracks and everything else without a hitch. The IRC stock tires are fantastic in the drought conditions we are having. 750km's so far, I will change the oil and filter very shortly..... Can't wait to post some photos once I figure how to do the URL thing from my pix on photobucket.....

right side protection?

hey all,
so far i've dropped the bike on it's right side and broke the brake lever while unloading it the first time- damn that things heavy- especially when it leans away from you, and layed it down going into a rutted left hander and folded the shifter. no worries, its a dirt bike. i'm a klutz. these things happen. handguards, radiator guard and skid plate showed up shortly thereafter.
but it did get me wondering...
i haven't pulled the right side tank plastic off yet. is there anything that can be damaged up in there, and do we need to worry about protection on that side?
thanks guys!

There is the coolant reservoir, but far more important and fragile is the radiator. I want some case guards and hope that the team at B&B Engineering get working on a design soon!

I am sure that with me having short legs that rad guard will save me lots of heartache.

Looking good, realizing the pic is from a while ago. Hope you have been riding it, the "whiskers" are still on the tires!

Tool kit

So since our "tool kit" is such a joke, I have been exploring on the TK thread, lots of good stuff over there, like these:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=756

http://www.endurostar.com/ts2_instr.htm

http://www.agrisupply.com/manual-can...70/&sid=&eid=/

The service manual doesn't list the nut/bolt sizes, so I'm probably going to carry 1/4" drive socket set, and open end 12mm for the chain adjuster (12 fits sloppy, but it's not 13), then you need 24/19 for the rear axle, and 17/12mm for the front axle/pinch bolts, with probably a sliding T-handle drive. Still going through the TK thread, heading up to Sears to jump start the economy, since I don't want to hack up my regular tool kit. There's a bunch of "rolls" available. Nice tricks, also, like putting extra hose clamps right on the hose, so it doesn't take up space someplace. Focusing on light weigh as much as possible. Probably make a thing like the Endurostar cheap, a piece of broom handle will work, but again, heavy, maybe conduit.

To save on space and weight I have found these Motion Pro combo tire levers to be quite useful, along with the Motion Pro T-6 Combo Lever Adapters instead of carrying a dedicated socket wrench set.

















Makes fitting everything I need for trailside repairs in a tool tube easier.

I did see those on the TK thread, and the lever drive adapter. Got an old set of Hozan dropped forged tire irons, I've had for years, but they aren't light. Funny how you can start to think, Well, since I'm gonna have the rear wheel off anyway to do the Tubliss conversion, I might as well do the 13/42, and slap a D606 on while I'm at it. My original plan was to wear out the rear first, but with the kind of weather we've been having, that can't happen real soon.
