Giant Loop sells an exhaust guard for their luggage for $25.
I looked at it when I was buying my Mojavi and contemplating a different exhaust but I like the quiet.
i currently have a 1994 yamaha xt225. i've been looking at honda's new crf250l. anyone out here have it, and how do you like it/ ride, etc?
70/30, dirt/street is mostly my riding.
Anyone removed the kickstand safety switch other than Ramz? I use mine for 80% dirt. Was out this weekend going up a pretty steep rough hill and the bike just dies, like it ran out of fuel, but fired right back up again, ran rest of the day. Pucker moment for sure. Got back to camp and one of the other riders mentioned the kickstand switch might have been activated :eek1
Have anyone removed the safety switch. If so how hard?
carlclaflin, I would read all the post, you will get your answer. Pretty hard to go to a bike specific thread and find owners who don't like them.
I read on the CRF'S only site that they list a Power Bomb and Mega Bomb header. One must be for torque at low to mid and the other for mid to high range. Which is which?
Does anyone live near the Four Corners area (within 100 miles or so) where they would be willing to let me park my vehicle while I attempt to ride the Colorado back roads discovery route. Probably would be in May/June time frame. It's a 650 mile route so it would probably take 4 to 6 days round trip. Thanks
Just want to say hi to all the CRF250L owners. Soon to be owner here. I just put a deposit on one since the 3 that came in sold in 2 days. Two more are coming soon and one is mine! After taking pictures at the motorcycle show here in Moncton and spending 2 days there I realized that it was time to move up from my 50cc scooter! I went through most of this long thread skipping over the flare ups and lots of good information here!
Any other CRF250L riders from Southeast New Brunswick?

You might wanna put this request in the Rockies Forum? BTW we are looking at the Colorado Back Country Discover Route this soummer (late) as well - I think that you should consider the route later than May/June because there is a good chance that some of the high passes will still be snowed in...
I see you have the slip ons. How much louder is this than the stock exhaust, and did you notice any improvement in performance?
Real easy Remove it, unplug it, connect the wires together done.
Thanks. I'm on it.
mega bomb for low to mid
power bomb for mid to high
A group of 5 of us are doing the COBDR and as much as the UTBDR as we can heading back south. Looking at maps, I've decided that Durango will probably be the best place for us to leave the truck/trailers and plan on skipping the 4 corners section as there isn't much dirt around there and just pick up the COBDR around Delores, CO. We are leaving GA July 26th in the trucks and should be ready to leave from Durango the morning of July 28th on the bikes. We plan on being back to the trucks by Aug 9th to head home.
I've still got to put up a post myself in the Rockies forum to find a place to leave the vehicles.
Thank you, Harcomo
I found that mirrors at the german Ebay.
Here they are: http://www.ebay.de/itm/230923047434
Yes, they are folding if you are riding offroad. But not complete 180 degree - only in that angle, as shown on the picture (both, inside and outside).
Those are really slick looking mirrors! Still, it looks like they could break pretty easily.
I use these on my KLX and DR:
I can attest to their durability. If you go down, they just fold out of the way. They're about $100 for a complete set (two mirrors, arms and mounts), but are well worth it.
Another source, though I haven't gotten around to getting these yet.
You are absolutely right. I obviously wasn't thinking. Thanks.
Would love to see a picture of your bike with the Coyote on there, I've been thinking about getting the Great Basin but wasn't sure if it would be too big for the bike.
I don't have a Great Basin, but from what I've seen, it might be a big big for the small DS bikes. The other thing is I think the Great Basin tends to sit "straight down" by default although it probably could be tied up towards the passenger pegs. The Coyote on the other hand sits more on an angle behind the rider's legs towards the passenger pegs.
But maybe someone has tried the Great Basin on a small bike.
