    bdolnick, welcome and thanks for the pics. :) How about a pic or two from the underside, the back - of the Yoshi thing...?
    I want to figure out whether to get this, or the DRC bracket, or just leave it.

    Yes! Good pics. :)

    PS:
    The Wheeling Cycle Supply CRF250L taillight kit - DRC Edge taillight + bracket + 12 o'clock Labs LED board with integrated turn signals and better LED because the DRC LEDs are not good enough... the DRC bracket is actually the one designed for the Suzuki DRZ400 - apparently it fits the CRF250L subframe perfectly. On the 12 o'clock Labs website, the images that show the dimensions of them, they're the same images, all dimensions the same. So if you don't want the expensive 12 o'clock Labs LED board...

    Where might I find a pix of "Jimbo"?

    EDIT: Google found it!!!

    EDIT: TRAINMAN: Way back when, a WR250R owner made brackets similar to the TCI ones and put a Wee-Strom windshield on it...looked very nice. I have one of my leftover homemade windshields I made for my WeeStrom as that motorcycle had some real aerodynamic noise issues. Guess I gotta buy the brackets and just putz some like other folks here

    Some guy on the minimalist thread made a windshield from a Harbor Freight face shield and used Velcro to attach, though I think that was on a "Brand Y". Our wind deflector thingy above the headlight is angular, so it might not fit so great, but could be trimmed fairly easily to whatever shape you wanted.

    I simply removed the funny lower fender and the license light and put a 1 inch strap on for a plate holder. No money and looks great.

    yes it is. added a nomadic rack, replaced the dirt only tires with Dunlop D606 DOT legal tires and ordered a front sprocket guard. here's a larger pic. the muffler is the blue titanium with the carbon fiber end.

    How did some of you manage to mount the white side plate with aftermarket exhaust? I assume its some sort of bracket, does anyone sell them?

    I notice that your exhaust has no heat shield like the OEM. I have a Giant Loop Coyote bag and it drapes across the plastic cover and part of the aluminum heat shield. Do you carry any overnight gear?

    Good for you! :D I also discovered that dealership on Craigslist. :deal

    I also found a local Honda dealership selling the bike for MSRP, without adding any bogus charges. A dealership in Orem, Utah is doing the same. :deal

    Monarch Honda, in Orem is where I got my bike. MSRP OTD, no other fees. It was totally worth the drive from Vegas. :clap

    According to Best Dual Sports, it's the only Q4 blue titanium with the carbon end cap that FMF makes. I also have the Powercore but it doesn't look as nice. ;) I'm in Walnut.

    National Cycle Spitfire...cheap and works well. This is a carry over from my DR-Z. It sits a little high on the CRF, but still works well.

    Could you show me more of your ADV monster lights? I have a set on my Versys, and I want to put a set on my LRP. How did you mount them, and which ones did you get? Thanks. :freaky

    These are model 44s. I used the two top bolts for the headlight shroud. They barely fit without rubbing the turn signals and are able to point straight ahead. I did have to buy an extra flanged washer for the left side to get a solid mount. They have not moved since I put a little blue thread locker on them.

    Parts needed were two longer bolts and one flanged washer.
