Does anyone have any info on the race bike 250L? Thai Rider Manoch Abdulkaree Who raced the CRF250L for AP Honda in the 2012 Asia Cross Country Rally? I found one very low quality pic. I believe there were two riders riding prepped 250L's that placed very high.

230 vs 250

My wife has a CRF230L which I rode around a lot. I just got my CRF250L and have 400 miles on it. Really there is no comparision, they are totally different bikes.

The 250 has a lot more power, much smoother, (engine and suspension) it feels much more modern. I rode them back to back for a comparision. To me, the only advantage the 230 has is lower seat height for someone who is very short, although the 250 weighs a lot more, you don't notice that at all. I found myself waiting for the engine to rev as I went thru the gears on the 230, it builds revs and speed much slower.

The 230 is a great bike for my short person like my wife, I used to enjoy riding it for fun, but not so much anymore.

If these are the same bikes, it looks like a new ECU, larger throttle body, cam and clutch

itrack, there's not much out there on the net about the bike that I could find, but I did locate this thread:

http://www.gt-rider.com/thailand-mot...it-for-CRF250L

Sounds like they tweaked the motor a bit, and probably put a different fork and shock on it. It's an interesting story, and the info on the Abdulkaree guy sounds impressive. Sounds like he won this event for the last several times...maybe on modded KLX's. I notice the guy who won was riding a WR400. Is that really the old WR400 from the past?

I thought this video was stupid. It does show the difference in sound (sort of). I only saw a 2 hp increase at the upper end of the revs. I would be more interested in seeing the difference in torque. That is more important to a dirt bike. For the street people they could show some times of 0 to 30 and 30 to 60 comparisons with and without the pipe. What we got to see was a guy going up a hill. Just my opinion.

But it's not a dirtbike... It's a dualsport bike, and if you do any desert riding HP can be quite desirable...

Any HP gain when you only start with 18 is significant equivalent to a 15-20% increase in power is amazing I have a Wr250r and just taking it from 25 stock to 29 modified made a world of difference in real world rideability just my 2 cents! It's great the aftermarket is supporting this bike so well a big part of owning these cheap bikes is having fun playing with the mods and sharing them with the community.

I agree. but HP in the higher revs is a little misleading. Torque is what you mostly feel. Also I would have thought that if your business was selling modified dual sport bikes you would be a little more informative. That would include the increased Torque numbers and probably some times like 0 to 30 and 30 to 60. (just for an example). showing a small HP graph and him riding up and down some hill does not induce me to spend my money.

Does anyone think the shifter for a CRF/R/X would work on this bike? Oh and the Seatconcepts seat is ready.
