yea, nothing constructive. made a mistake selling my crf250L and now want one back. sigh. keeping an eye out on CL, ebay & cycletrader.com. would like to find a used one that has some of the mods already done (gee, maybe like the one i sold ). nice to see people still enjoying their CRF. if i do buy one looks like that big bore kit is a must... ok going to go back and keep searching.
