Best helmet for CRF250L!?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys what helmet are you choosing for the crf250l? Been debating between a few.. I personally really like the look of the Icon Variant but cannot decide which color.

Red

I think the red looks nice but it may be a little much. What other helmets do you guys recommend?

White helmets show up in traffic better than other colors --the flip (opening) front ones are nice when talking to someone else --no need to take them off and go over glasses--Get DOT approved helmet for sure--personally i have a flip front Noland one button so you only need one hand to open is best BTW--

There is a good/wrong, best helmet?

We are getting hard up for topics! Can I use the same for my other bike or do I have to get a different one?

That Icon looks nice, color is really a personal preference.

I have a Fly Trekker and Arai XD4 now, like em both but the Arai is way more comfy and quieter all around. Both of mine are white.

Are we putting helmets on our bikes now, I thought WE wear them not the bike? I have to start catching up on the trends.

i want the Icon Variant Hi-Viz green-yellow.  going by the pics i've seen, the red one doesn't match the Honda red. and it's got skullz, so....overdone. And so inauspicious.

I wish I would have did my homework before buying this one ....  it's not too bad but my Fly moto helmet is twice as comfortable

But I wanted the face shield for added warmth ...  :excuseme:  I would hate to shell out the cash for another one  :banghead:

so far ... the worst that has happened to me was getting thumped by a small bird .... It felt like I got hit by a deer or something .. somehow I managed to hold on and slow the bike down to the side of the road and could barely catch my breath ... at the time I was going about 70 mph on a 2004 Victory KingPin. I did see the bird as it struck me ... It was either a very small sparrow or Robin ... maybe even a finch. My bikers buddies at the time could not understand what happened to me as nobody actually saw it happen.

 

I now brake for birds ...  :p

      So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃
      I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? 
      I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home.
      Thanks, 
      The guy who f***** up

      Hey guys, I have a 2014 crf250l and the current gearing is 13-40. I am dissapointed at how  slow the acceleration is,so am trying to buy a new rear sprocket. I am currently trying to decide between a 45 and 48 tooth. All help is appreciated.
      Thank you

      Anyone heard this noise coming from under the gas tank when throttle changes? 250 miles 2017 rally. No mods.

      How much of a performance bump is there when putting a full exhaust, ejk, and modding the air box on a crf250l?
      Are there any dyno numbers?
