Buzzing is usually the relay, but could be a bad connection. I had a Suzuki ATV that buzzed instead of starting, and it turned out to be a loose battery lead.

Is there any Domestic

sites i could order a shift lever from?

Ive seen that the 250l has the same crf150r is there any confirmation on that? Is there a specific year that works?

I've combed through a bunch of posts about it but couldn’t find a confirmation.
Thanks yall.

Anyone know what it may be?
check battery voltage...sounds like you have a low or near dead battery...if you're down under 11.5 volts or so, your battery is dying.....or has lost it's charge

I am waiting on the MSR folding shift lever from motorcycle-superstore.com (SKU#162068) It is indeed the one that fits the crf150r. $23.99 + S/H. There is a picture of it in the CRF250L Adventure Travel thread.

(I mistakenly ordered the one that fits the crf250r initially, which does NOT fit the crf250l.)

Yep, that be the one. Came today, already on the bike. Thanks for your post; it inspired me to pull the trigger on that shifter.

I was told by my local dealer that you can not push/bump start these bikes due to the clutch switch.

Has anyone tried to bypass the clutch switch like it has been done on the side stand switch?

I know without the clutch switch that there is the possibility of overloading your starter by starting in gear, but is there any danger in roll starting these bikes other then that?

Doesn't the 250L have an electric fuel pump? I would imagine that a really shot battery wouldn't pressure up the fuel system. That would prevent bump starting the bike.

That's right,a weak battery that will start and run another bike will not run this system.
Needs good juice
Haven't tried on this bike
But I just sold a fi hd it's battery would run another bike no problem..boosted the fi bike with the weak battery and as soon as booster battery was unhooked bike would die.
Sold the bike kept the battery it still works fine on a non fi bike

Got the bike

Had it for a little while now. Definitely happy with the bike. A lot of fun with potential for improvements.

Here is just a small part of a ride on some dirt roads.
