The CRF250L has 335w. I would guess that you have at least 100w available at a cruising RPM.
I think gloves actually pull more watts than grips? Grips are nice if you hands just get a little chilly, but gloves do a much better job of actually keeping your hands warm in colder weather. Now a set of heated grips + hippo hands do a great job.
We've run a 77w Gerbings heated jacket liner + 35w heated grips all day with no issue last winter, there seems to be plenty of power left over to stay warm in cold weather on the LRP.
I can't see the bike using more than 150w between lights, fuel pump, injector, and ECU, but haven't put an amp clamp on it.
Speaking of, I remember seeing OEM honda heated grips a long ways back in this thread, maybe from someone in Japan, has anyone found a source for OEM heated grips in the USA or have a part #?
The el cheapo generic heated grips I installed just to get us through winter have failed and if I can get OEM ones I'd like to go that route. If not these Moose Racing ones have served me well on another bike.
For those of you who have changed over to the IMS tank, When you changed the OE fuel pump out of the OE fuel tank to the IMS tank, What did you do about the gasket? The OE tank has ridges with the studs in it, versus the IMS tank which has a flat surface where the gasket goes. I happened to have a motorcycle shop next door and he did not feel to comfortable using the same gasket cause you can't tighten it down to the right torque with out the gasket getting pushed out the sides. What did you torque the bolts too?
Watch me fall down and test how strong my mods are.
your reaction when you first went down on one side(48 second in) then picked the bike and it fell to the other side was hilarious!
great vid by the way, enjoyed the whole thing!
You've got crashing down to a science! BTW, bars at full lock increase leverage, for lifting the bike. But hey, you are all done crashing.....
They are proud of that one! Figured a piece of plastic would be less than aluminum!
I enjoyed that video. It seems that the best way to overcome the fear of those tricky situations (and learning how to handle them), is by giving them a go. And it sure helps if you have buddies nearby.
Well I pulled the trigger today on the LRP. Rode it 150 miles today on the interstate, twisties and 2 track. I have to admit the LRP exceeded my expectations.
I bought this little gem with the intention of setting it up for touring. All my kit fitted right up!
I just snugged them until it started squishing out. It seals fine.
Why hasn't anyone come up a fork bleeder option for the LRP? I would think a machine shop could drill holes in the stock fork caps and resell them to fit a motion pro fork bleeder. RAMZ made some but I don't want to put forth the effort to get it done. Someone should put a kit together. Unless someone already has a lead on this.
Hey John, what fairing is that?
more details to fallow if anyone is interested ......
So what's the big deal, gnath?...a KLX with a B&B sticker on it.
Looking forward to hearing how it performs.
lol .... no big deal but, All I have done was putt it around taking my time to break it in properly.
According to the dyno I am up to about 26 HP now with the 305
I just thought if anyone is interested I could share my thoughts on this as I gain a little more seat time.
I can only comment on my impressions and satisfaction as I did not install this myself and am by no means an expert or mechanic. I just wanted a little more power under my butt !!! ....
^ I'm considering doing a 305 kit this winter, so I'm eager to hear your impressions with it.
ADVmonster Dual Sport fairing
Was considering offering a bolt on kit for the L, including fender and gauge mount. Will see how the wife likes it on the bike. The faring has worked great on other bikes it has been mounted on, from a XT225 to a 950se.
any chance of a one time deal only for the crf250l thread guys??( hint hint?)
Absolutely, if anyone is interested please send pm or email (email@example.com).
