Thanks, I may have too look into 13/45. Weigh that change against an Exhaust, Programmer and Air Box mod..So many choices.

13/45 may require a longer chain too

I got the hunting idle on video. While I agree it's probably not supposed to hunt like that, it really isn't a big deal. I notice it when cold. Might be the o2 sensor acting up before it gets warm.

It's a little hard to make it out in the video. Mine does it too though. Someone earlier in this thread or the other also said something about heat coming off the left hand side of the bike. I got that too. Ah it feels good to validate

My 08 kawi Versys did that very same thing for 28000 miles. Only on cold start-ups. I got used to it and thought it was no big deal.

Hard to tell from the video but it sounds fine to me. If it really bothers you, bring it to the dealer. Otherwise just ride the teets off of it.

Sprocketos...

Gentlemen (And ladies?) question for you more techy folks...

I have already done the 13T in the front and would like to do the 45T in the rear since I mostly only ride dirt and would like to make 2nd gear more peppy. I dont want to order the one from CRF's only because they only carry it in aluminum and I would like to have a steel one. I am also pretty partial to JT sprockets from past experience so I would like to use one of theirs. I am trying to cross reference which one will fit, using Rick Ramseys (RAMZ) info on his site but I am running into a snafu...

The 45T they have listed for the '93-'11 XR650L and the '91-'00 XR600R is part number: JTR301.45

The 45T they have listed for the '96-'04 XR250R is part number: JTR210.45


The first one looks more like the CRFL sprocket and is a beffier design while the one for the XR250R is a lighter design with the inside "bolt hole tabs" free floating.

These sprockets are all sold on Amazon for cheap and surprisingly enough they are even available on amazon prime! free 2 day shipping for prime members!!!

Does anybody have any input on this? I hate returning stuff even though amazon does make it fairly painless and I dont want my bike to be out of commission for a week or two if I order the wrong part.

Order both of them and then return the wrong one

When and if you do this please give review. I am considering the same. Specifically if you are able to lift the wheel with just whipping your right wrist. Also can you still cruise at 65 without the motor being all wrung out.

I won't know till I do it but I would think that the bike will still do 70 mph w/ the 13/45T setup without being wrung out.

Folding shift lever

Has anyone found a folding shift lever to fit this thing yet? I don't need it now, but at at some point, I will.

PNW availability

Hi, I've been watching this thread, thinking the 250 would make a nice replacement for the departed KLR 650, as well as a stablemate for the Wee strom. I'm not having any luck finding one in the Portland area, not quite sure why...
Has anyone seen/ bought one in the Seattle/ Tacoma Western Washington area? Any info on actual pricing?
Thanks in advance!

I'm waiting for information on international availability. They're made in Thailand.


For the record, I bent my shifter 90 degrees to the outside and I straightened it with my foot. Not pretty but still works.
I have already bent my brake lever twice on the trails. Shell probably snap next time. I really wish the aftermarket would kick it into high gear already. We need parts people!!!!
