    Is there anything behind the bulky bashplate/infront off engine? Is it possible to store things there? How is the clutch/brakes on this thing?

    The engine is behind the fairing / bashplate panels and I would not think it possible to store anything there but you could probably hide something small like keys in there somewhere. There is a storage compartment on the left side of the motorcycle just below the seat.

    The clutch is the same as the standard CRF250L but the brakes are upgraded for more weight on the Rally model so it has a larger front disc than the standard CRF250L.

    Would you mind telling the price in baht you paid?
    I've got one of the first 250L's that came on the market in Thailand. I can't complain about it. No problems at all.
    Thanks

    The light states on all the time as do the front indicators. Head light is very bright, full beam in the day time dazzles you

    I think I found the aux power plug. It gives you 12 volts, when the ignition is turned on.

    It's under the left upper front fairing.

    Use this info with a great deal of caution. I'm not 100% sure about this.

    I own a 250L FWIW.

    My first mod would be a rear fender/tag eliminator kit...

    My advice..
    Don't fiddle with it too much/go ride.

    Play with the weight of the fork oil based on your needs. I like running rutted out forest roads fast.. Lower weight helps soften up things(or you could go the other way.

    I have all the power bolt ons/EJK and it makes a small difference but make it obnoxious loud(and kills MPG). I'd skip it on this one.

    Reduce weight were possible and don't add any up high if possible. Topcase? Gets in the way offroad and puts weight up high(any empty box gets filled).

    Man she's a looker.

    I am sure diameter of piping is different to older model so wouldn't aftermarket take some time to develop exhausts unless Honda gave them some bikes before release.

    Also any cool exhausts to replicate crf 450 rally dakar bikes :DD hang the exhaust low(i know they do it for the gas tank extension so exhaust doesnt touch it/near it)

    Agreed. I resisted the urge to make any power mods to my WR250R, I like it quiet.
    Really liking the looks of these things!
    The idea of one with the CBR300R motor is probably going to cost me some money.
