    How important is the valve clearance inspection at 600 miles? Honda dealers in Bangkok don't want to do it!

    Clears the screen fine, but they were a tight fit. I don't want to spam this thread with all the photos, but check out my blog for details.

    Linking Webbiker's tool kit picture - does the Rally tool kit really lack the tools to remove a wheel (ie, to fix a flat)?

    Unless the dealer kept some of the tools, yes. The above is all you get.

    Interesting... I downloaded a PDF CR250L owners manual and, in addition to what you show, the base model manual specifies 4 box wrenches (10, 17, 19, 24mm), extension bar, and spark plug wrench - that's pretty comprehensive for stock tool kit.

    Hope it's a US vs International spec thing.... kinda like the ugly yellow tumor turn blinkers we'll get here.

    Same inventory of tools as picture above in my new Rally here in Sweden. My 2013 L-modell had better tool setup.

    The thought of trying to fix a flat on any OEM tool kit sounds absolutely horrible.

    Honda will never supply spanners to remove wheels etc etc as it would be even heavier! Ha

    Sorry.... 'same' as webbiker's linked picture... or 'same' as your '13 L model with all the additional tools I mentioned.

    Yeah, it ain't fun, but it works in a pinch.... at least once or twice ;). My issue always seems to be the rear axle bolt - any aftermarket box wrench large enough to fit that bolt is usually too long to neatly stash on the bike. OEM extension bars are a viable compromise.

    I removed the metal plate from the back and used a few washers on the bolt instead. Seems to hold them more than enough and the rubber is retained for vibration dampening.

    I was considering braided lines, but with the ABS on the front it could be a pain.

    Another evening of wrenching on the rally with disappointing results. Concocted a cheap mix of CRF250L exhaust parts to try and retro fit onto the Rally. Used a Delkevic oval end can + link pipe, and an Arrow stainless steel header.
    Everything fitted. Just. The header lacks a bung for the O2 sensor, bike runs without it, but feels hesitant and has the engine light on constantly. Plus the internal diameter is a great deal smaller than on the stock Rally pipe.
    The end can just reminds me of the saying, "Buy cheap, buy twice". It looks good off the bike (I much prefer the style to the Yoshi or FMF) but fitment on the bike is horrible. Plus the can itself is leaking from the front joint where the rivets are. Delkevic will certainly be getting an email tomorrow. Excuse the rubbish pictures, it was gone 10pm by the time the bike was back together and tested.

    Going to see what I can re-coup from these bits and start saving for a full system :baldy

    For windshield buffeting one of the things I did on my 500 was add some license plate buttons as spacers. It helped with cleaning up the airflow and giving a little bit more room to the handguards when the handlebars are all the way over.
