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.

Well just bought mine a couple weeks ago. Loving it so far. I hated the rear fender/reflector business so rather than buying something i figured i would get out the dremmel and heat gun first to see if i can make something work.

DIY fender eliminator project. VERY easy only took me about an hour because i was taking things slow.

First i took the metal bracket off that the plate mounts to. put some blue tape around the plastic and mounted the license plate where the metal bracket was mounted. Traced around the plate for my cut guides. Unbolted the plate and started cutting. At the top, where it mounts back under the tail light I just angle cut it back under to make it look nice and clean. Gave it a quick edge sanding to clean it up and done! well i thought i was done.. It still sat pretty straight down so i busted out the heat gun. Took the plate off and heated the plastic where the natural crease is, bent it up then sprayed some cool water on it and there we go. Jsut angled it up a bit. It was fun, personally i like the look and cant beat the cost.. FREE! next thing I would like to do is replace the license plate light with something smaller or modify the current one to bring it in closer. Here are some photos.

Future mods, HDB hand guards and mirrors, fmf slip on, possibly the powerbomb, and currently working on a wrap to give it some style.

If your looking for torque just reheat it my buddy went 13-48 and its great can still ride the highway although we font much. I agree more informative numbers would be nice! But hey the bike out the door is only 5000 so what the heck dropping 800 and programmer header and can is nothing even if it just makes it go bbbrrraaappp!
