Headlight or Number Plate Simple Solution


I found a very simple way to change your X model CRF from headlight to number plate for those who want to zip it around the track. Once the plate is made it takes about 3 minutes to switch one for the other.

It is very simple all you need are 2 1 inch L brackets

2 small carriage bolts

2 washers

existing hardware for headlight mount

simply bolt the L brackets on to the stock triple clamp with your existing mounting hardware

Hold new #plate in position desired ( I found a WR426 works perfect) and mark dots on plate through the holes in the L bracket with sharpie or marker..

drill small holes in plate where you marked them for drilling

remove mounting hardware and L brackets from clamp

insert threaded end of carriage bolts through the front of the plate attach L brackets with washer and nuts and tighten just snug

hold plate in position line up L brackets with triple clamp mount and bolt onto bike

tighten carriage bolts from front of plate with screwdriver

now all you have to switch anytime you want is remove and install to mounting bolts from your top clamp takes about 15 minutes to make plate and about 3 to switch back and forth to ride your chosen condition of track or trail. below is a picture of the finished product. Looks nice I think.

      I have a 1998 Honda CR250 for sale.
      I just finished rebuilding the whole motor. It’s only been started two times for heat cycles.
      I had the cylinder re-plated by millenium technologies.
      The motor has the following new parts:
      -Hotrods crank
      -vertex std piston
      -crank bearings
      -transmission bearings
      -air filter
      It also has new 
      -new radiator shrouds
      The rest of the bike is setup as follows:
      -aftermarket upper clamp
      -IMS pegs
      -pro taper bars
      -excel rims
      -SDG seat
      -FMF fatty pipe 
      -FMF silencer (USFS approved)
      -boyesen dual stage reeds
      -race tech rear spring 180 lbs rider
      If you have questions just ask.
      The bike is nice, but not show room by any means. Reason for not being perfect is that I already have a bike that I built that way and because of what I’m into it, no one is willing to pay for it.
      Thanks for looking.

      I'm looking for information on how to route the carburetor hoses on a 2005 Honda XR650L. It's a California model, but it has the smog stuff removed and blocked off. It's uncorked and has an FMF slip on exhaust, along with Dave's Mod done. It would be nice to have a diagram, but pictures or even just an explanation would work. Just looking to see how best to set up the carb hoses. Thank you

      My dad and I have two XR650Ls, one is a 2005, the other is a 2008. We've been trying to get the carburetor tuned, but we've been having some trouble finding the right way to route all the hoses. Both of them have had Dave's mod done, and they've been uncorked and have an FMF Powercore 4 slip on exhaust. They're jetted at 55 and 158 at about 6,500 feet above sea level.
      Fairly often, when I'm cruising around 40 mph, the exhaust pops and the bike loses power for a split second. That's the main problem that I've noticed.
      Also, on my bike, if I let off the throttle without pulling in the clutch, it pops a ton. I know some popping is normal, but it seems like it's a bit excessive.
      If anyone has any tips on routing the carburetor hoses, or any other tips to get them running right, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      I have started building my 1994 z50, over the weekend I messed up the forks. I have been hording part for the build and its time to start i have a set of +1 chromoly tubs with the delrin fork bushings . A new 1 1/2" extended swingarm with 280mm rear shocks. The only thing I dont have is a nice set of front springs I want something that will take small jumps and bumps for a 180lb rider but not be so stiff it hurts or way to soft . I am looking at two brothers xr50 springs and want to know what everyone recommends from experiance. Give me the + /- of different set ups.

      NEW PRICE!  Wheels and tires from a 2014 crf450r.  Factory D.I.D wheels are excellent.  No dings, dents, or cracks. Tires are Dunlop MX52.  Front tire is in very good condition, rear is in good shape with lots of life. Would separate rear wheel for trade for an 18" rear that will fit a 2015 CRF450X or the right offer.
