    Still using Google and this search string
    2007 crf250x ADR Australian model wiring diagram

    I get lots of wiring diagrams, including these 2, but the legend is confusing...

    I still like Google for searches like this.

    I use the image search most of the time.

    Please note: If you download the pictures that I posted above, you get about 1/3 the size as the one's I found with Google. If that's ok (and they are still pretty big), then fine. But if you need more detail, do the Google search as I did to get the originals.

    Over the course of the last few months I've freshened up my '06 250X. It got freshly serviced and tuned suspension, new wheel bearings, new tires, new chain/sprockets, new seat pad and cover, new air filter, new brake pads and fluid, and most importantly, a license plate for dual sport. After changing the oils yesterday, today was the day to get it out for a test ride.

    I did just under 100 miles exploring little roads into the hills to the east of Huntsville. The bike ran great, and handled beautifully with fresh suspension and balanced wheels. I do wish that it had room for a 15t sprocket up front, or that I could find a rear smaller than 48t. I had to make a short run on the highway up to about 65 mph and it felt like I was wringing its neck. I bailed off as soon as I could (a couple miles), but it was feeling like the valves were tightening. I guess next on the to-do list is a valve inspection, and adjustment, if necessary.

    Gotta love the little 250!

    Here's my 06 250x bought new. Used it about 10 years running harescrambles. Other than flatland radiator guards, tusk hand guards and works bash plate, I'd only added a JD jet kit when new.

    This year I started collecting pieces to replace all the plastics with new OEM. Needs forks seals and shifter seal. Got started on it last week, tearing it down to clean it up reasonably well and start replacing parts. I must not ride it hard enough,bits never needed a valve adjustment.

    Even flush out the original green HP antifreeze and installed the new super charged HP 2 blue antifreeze!

    Got around to finishing my maintenance. Replaced fork seals, front brake pads, new grips, hand guard covers, new plastics up front, change oil, filter and transmission fluid, removed skid plate and scrubbed down my grubby underside.

    Don't have any great pictures, but I finally got a TrailTech fan kit put on the 250X, as well as Engine Ice. Took it out a few weeks ago and it ran great! Helped that it wasn't 90+ degrees here but rarely hit 200.

    Next year I'll need new rubbers. I am plated so I'd like to look into DOT rubbers, any experience? I will be riding 99% dirt. Just really need to get through inspection and even then I may be able to slip through it without checking tires.

    I just put on the Tusk Dual Sport tires as part of the refresh on my '06. They seemed to work very well on the pavement and dirt last weekend. I will say that the dirt experience with them is very limited. These appear to be a knockoff of the Dunlop D606. For $50/end, I figured they were good to try.

    IMHO Moto-Z Tractionator IT are the most aggressive DOT tire, they work almost as well as Michelin S-12's offroad, they also seem to hold up well on asphalt, I will warn you, the VERY loud on the road, I also run them on my 990.

    IMG_8844.JPG

    The set I'm currently running on the 990, they are mind numbing loud on the street, they see 90% off pavement.

    I'm running an older Kenda Washogal front, which is DOT. You might look at the Trackmaster thru RMATV, they're DOT too.

    I was just going to suggest them. I really like them.

    There is a good range of Goldentyres that are aggressive and DOT as well.
