It's not header wrap. It's header armor. I got it at the same place I got the skid plate.

Ricochet Offroad Armor.

Have not done much to mine yet but ride it. I had an old set of el-cheapo handguards on a shelf. They fit.



My shopping list? One of the above skid plates, pipe armor, 13 tooth front, and a rear rack. I have a GIVI 30 liter top case on a shelf somewhere it looks like this but mine is white.



I just have to decide on what rack I want then adapt it for my case.

I believe he said they were Kenda 761's 80/20 Tires.

For those of us who are looking for options to the Richochet skidplate, who does polymer skidplates? Other than Hyde Racing?

So 17mm front and 24mm rear. Hmm. I was hoping Motion Pro's (http://motionpro.com/motorcycle/tool...6_combo_lever/) handy dandy combo levers would fit.

Thanks for posting, really like that plate. Went to their site but can't seem to find it.

Moose sells AXP skidplates through their dealers. Check with them to see when they'll have the CRF250L versions.

I modified a WR250R version to fit my CRF250L:

It looks like it's a bit larger than the CRFL version - more protection.
