Quick question RE: the fender kit,
Has anyone run into issues getting the bike inspected after installing? This is the first mod I'd like to do but don't want any additional hassles when it comes to keeping it on the road.
Has anyone use the actual kit for installing the DRC egde 2 tail light. The one on here http://shop.12oclocklabs.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=28&product_id=104
How come nobody told me how much fun snow riding is?
We got about 2 inches of snow here Sunday. The roads have melted off but there's still snow in my woods. On my way home from work I had a freaking blast sliding this lil Honda through my woods and the neighbor's CRP land. What a riot I am still grinning.
I was rooster tailing snow flying up the hills. I am acting like a dumbass kid on this thing
I didn't know it was a secret... I was riding a MX60 in the snow back in the '70s. I was about 7 years old, nobody said it was a secret. It sure is fun. It's even more fun when it's about a foot deep.
I had a DRC on my DRZ and another no-name non-DOT tail light on my XRL, got stopped by the LEO but they never even looked at those (in CA). Long as your licence plate is lit, you should be good.
Well sat down with my manager today and asked about the fmf power fi we called, they said they were out of stock. Called the original development people(dobeck performance) got hooked up as a dealer for them and should have mine show up in 2 days here at the shop
WOW....thanks for that, I think..lol. 95 pages deep and no apparent solution to the problem from what I`ve skimmed threw. Looks like I`ll be busy reading threw it all. Exact same issue as described, with not much help from dealers or Honda for that matter. Good read for anyone that's interested (or bored) saves us (me) from going threw all the possibilities on here. I follow this thread quite frequently and am curious to see if anyone else on here is having this issue with the CRF250L or is mine the lone dud!! Love the bike and this Thread is great, just want to TRY and figure out this issue
I read bits of it...one guy appears to have gotten a reduction in stalls by going to lower viscosity oil...and then theorized it was leanness effects and friction effects at idle......I wonder if ANYONE with a Dobek calibration modifier has richened up the idle and gotten rid of the stall issue...either with a 250R or 250L.....as I noticed JD Jetting sells their version of the Dobek product for 209$$.......if anyone knows it'd be Rick Ramsey!!
Thanks, I didn't figure there would be an issue but I just don't have the time or gumption to deal with the hassle, just want to ride...
So the bike has been put away for about 3 weeks now. I'm going to have some wrenching to do in the spring
Seat Concepts Seat, Ricochet skid plate, Manrack with Rotopax mount, hour meter, 13T sprocket...
I've been lucky, I've got both a CBR and a CRFL. Neither one rattles or stalls. But, at times, they do give me a severe case of sore cheeks from smiling so much.
I was thinking the same thing about the Dobek and was planning on getting one in the future. Just worried about IF it doesn`t solve the issue, how will this affect my 1 year warranty. Bottom line, and a good point taken from that Thread is that it should be Honda`s problem to fix without us having to buy after-market solutions. My plan is to notify the dealer about the situation and go from there.....However, due to past experiences with this same dealer (we owned a 2006 civic, which was a POS to put it mildly!) we had a hard time getting any satisfaction out of them. We`ll see how the Honda Powerhouse department is. (All Hondas under one roof just different departments here in Canada) not sure if they do this in the US or elsewhere.
See the fella that started that tread with the initial problem, Honda actually offered him a brand-new bike or his money back, he took the money!!
In my wheely crash yesterday I noticed that I almost punctured the oil filter cap again...anyone thought or seen of some type of frame sliders?? Kinda off topic but really dont wanna get stranded one day :eek1
This is the skidplate I intend to purchase
Extra protection...but not sure itll help that issue
What about axle sliders like super motos do.
Charcoal canister went bye bye, free'd up space on the backside of the engine, I can heat up some food behind there when im on the trails now. ha

Alcohol in the fuel will make my F800ST stall repeatable , the stores often times jack up prices via adding more alcohol than is posted.
One BMW shop told me they had drained out 30% alcohol from a service for stalling . My F800 BMW will stall easily with alcohol in the fuel, I avoid the stuff. Plain burned out a fuel pump @ 800 miles, changed to normal fuel, no problem @ 15,000 miles.
I seem to recall another EFI bike having the exact same problem. Early year FJR1300's maybe? Had something to do with the ECU programming and not sure if the manufacturer ever owned up to it and offered a fix or not.
just mind the skidplate, mine didnt line up properly with the top holes, welding was good on it, but i didnt wanna go bending the tabs for the skidplate just incase i wanna put the old one back on, so i just fitted up the one bolt, and did it up tight as, havent had any dramas with it since. motor does run a bit warm but pfft, its watercooled, if it was aircooled i'd be worried.
