Nice one, i'll stick with the CRF pump and change the connector, needs lengthening as well.....
i removed the valve, its just extra weigh really.
as for lean sensor, i used the stock crf250l one, and left it in the same position.
nope, here in canada they dont give a shit. my insurance company still thinks its a 250cc.
even if i was to sell it there is no inspection requirement in canada both for motorbikes or for cars. i know, mind blown..........
my friend just bought a 17 year old jeep with 330,000km on it, the rear brakes dont work, the front ones barely work. engine is falling apart...entire jeep is falling apart actually. windscreen is spider cracked, airbags dont work/light on. seat belt tentioners dont work. suspension is collapsed,
hes basically a rolling death trap yet his insurance did not require a inspection to insure and register it..........
man, u guys must have super small feet.
my gear lever is almost twice as long , and this pic is before i moved my foot peg down by 2 " and back by 1" so its even longer now. i also routed mine under the foot peg, not over top due to my boot hitting it all the time.
I don't hit my gear lever by accident but I do want to extend my pegs out as my foot really only sits on half of the peg currently.
That's a cracking reference pic there Scutty, just shows how far back the stock CB foot pegs are because the lever is shown 180 degree's other way on OEM parts diagram and by the way the new price for one is extortionate..!!
Micheal, I never critique other peoples work ever but I feel your lever position under your peg looks very vunerable ??? Was there a reason you went that way..?? I still haven't done this aspect so was just asking ok.
did you utilise the original footpeg position and mount ?
Yes Jon, thats the original mount.

i dont understand scutty?
u just said u dont hit ur gear lever but then showed a picture that clearly shows your gear lever in the way of ur foot to be hit lol.
here is a better pic, you can see i re-welded the foot peg 2" lower and 1" back
and as u can see my lever is not in the way of my boot in any way, nicely hidden under the plastic hose guard.
i dont see how it is that vulnerable
its inline with the footpeg and its behind the bash plate. i mean yeah i guess if i took a jump and landed on a big pointy rock it might bend it slightly, but it is steel after all.
my father's xt250 has the lever in pretty much the same place. and ive seen a few other bikes with the same position and no-ones reported any problems???
i put the lever underneath to better accommodate my foot/ not obstruct ergo's. but it really dont matter, there is no "right way" , just what ever way works for you.
Michael - my foot would hit the lever if it sat on the whole foot peg but it doesn't. At most my boot is half on the peg which is why I really need to get some nice long adventure pegs like Levi's (which are STUPID expensive once imported in the UK)
In hindsight I like your lever position better but I'm not changing it now :)
Point taken on the gear lever, it just looked vulnerable in the pic, as in ; the pivot point looked too low but I guess this aspect is a niggle to get it right. All the off-road bikes I've had over the years have all presented me with issues with regards to gear shifting so I don't expect this one to be any different...!!!
yeah it was a bad pic, the new pic shows a better angle.
im the same way when it comes to gear levers, most bikes dont fit me, specifically my large boots i wear.
Any of you crf500 guys have a super motor set up? Would like to see a pic.
I think @michaelkozera comes the closest with a set of dual sport tires on a set of stock wheels. I maybe wrong tho. I haven't seen any 17/17 wheel set ups so far. Everyone doing this conversion wants a well mannered off roader with good road performance.
It seems to me like ground clearance might be an issue on 17s unless you do something to limit uptravel
I think if someone was considering 17/17 supermoto set up, they're probably not as concerned with offroad clearance. There is also the option of a second set of wheels set up for offroad. Again, I refer to @michaelkozera because he has different wheel set ups.
yeah i have 2 sets of tires/rims. 21/18 dot knobbies wheels. and 21/18 street rims/tires for a sportsman setup.
couldnt comment on the 17/17 as ive never used, but it would lower ur ground clearance, and ur headlight would be aiming fairly low too.
Thanks for clearing that up.
Gents, do any of you have a CRF250L wiring diagram and if so can you take the same shot as this please so I can 100% confirm wires...???? I am splicing and extending the fuel pump connector tomorrow and have noticed different colours going to the pump..
This image is from a CB500F manual.
Right, but I'd want to be able to bottom out the suspension on level ground without the frame scraping.
Here is the CRF250L wiring diagram
