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.

I just sent an inquiry to AXP, but the currency converter says EUR 120 = USD $155.29, not including shipping, so it's probably not cheap.

Ditto. If anyone has any leads on other polymer options, don't hesitate to chime in.

Here's a video review of the Honda CRF250L versus the Kawasaki KLX250S which I found at Motorcyclenews.com.

^^I saw that last week, not a bad review. Wish they had a few more pics for comparison. I'd like to see a DS 250cc shoot out with all the players.

Does anyone have a dyno run with a pipe, airbox mods, and fuel programmer yet?

IMS over sized fuel tank in the works!

I shot an email to the folks at IMS and Chris replied that it was already being developed. No I didn't ask what size it would be and no I didn't ask when it would be available. I'm just happy knowing a bigger tank is in the works.

Ordered some Shinko 241's in 3x21 and 4x18 along with some D-Flex Bark Busters. Should have all of it on by next week and I'll report how they do. These factory tires really get to head shaking the bike at anything above 60mph.
