  1. Reposted from the adventure/dual sport forum: I have seen other posts around Thumper Talk about where to ride off road in the South Florida area, especially the east coast which includes Palm Beach, Broward and Dade county. If you have a platted bike you can ride in the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area. I have been out in Corbett many times and there is a lot of land to ride. Now is the time of year since the rainy season is gone and the waters levels have dropped. Expect to get wet regardless because it is a damn swamp. Read the brochures and check out the map. http://myfwc.com/media/4436873/Corbett.pdf http://myfwc.com/media/4436904/Corbett-Map.pdf

    2017 CRF250L First Service and Valve Clearance

    Marc Macbain, I have not done anything to address this "noise". I now have close to 6,000 miles on the bike and it runs perfectly fine. No issues what so ever. I also ride the bike very hard on road and off road. The noise bothered me for a while because I thought it was a problem, but all seems well.

    CRF250L Tires

    Recently installed the Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T on both the front (2nd tire) and rear (3rd tire). The front tire is the stock size of 80/100X21 and the rear tire size is 120/90/18. The rear tire rubbed on the mud flap for a little while, but is now fine and that is with the tire all the way back with the 13T front sprocket and 42T rear sprocket and a 106 link chain. I got about 5000 miles out of the front stock IRC tire, 3000 miles out of the rear stock IRC tire and my second rear tire was a Michelin AC10 that got about 2500 miles. Before the Tractionator's I road 90% street and 10% off road. Now it is more like 80% street and 20% off road with 650 miles on the Tractionator's. At 650 miles, they still have a lot of life left. These tires are much better off road than the stock IRC tires and the Michelin tire I had, but they are twitchy on road until you get used to them and or until they wear down a little. I live in South East Florida, so my off road riding is mud, sugar sand, hard sand and dirt roads. I recommend them.

    MOTOZ Motorcycle Tyres Tractionator Enduro I/T

    Got these tires for my 2017 CRF250L and they are great. The tires have about 650 miles on them so far and I mostly ride 20% off road and the rest is on road. The wear has been better than expected. I live in South East Florida and they are good for the swamp. On the pavement, these tires feel "twitchy" and I do not push them hard through the corners.

    This is not the right bike... Reccomendations?

    - MSRP for the Yamaha WR250R = $6700 versus the Honda CRF250L= $5150 and the difference being $1550. - WR250R weight = 295 versus the CRF250L = 318. -WR250R seat height = 36.6 versus the CRF250L = 34.4 That being said, I have owned my 250L for over a year now and I love the bike. I have ridden the WR250R and I think that it is an all around better bike in terms of performance. IF you spend another $1550 on the 250L will it match the WR250R in performance?

    South Florida ride

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I live in Jupiter and I am looking for some people to ride with.
  8. If you are in Jupiter or if you want to ride in Palm Beach County send me a message.
  9. I live in Jupiter and I ride a dual sport on the regular and I have a few small spots in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens that are fun. Since my bike is plated and registered I have more freedom when accessing these spots since they are behind a sub development, next to I-95 or maybe an undeveloped patch of woods in a commercial area. Besides those small spots in town I will hit up the canals and go out to JW Corbett WMA when it is not flooded. Corbett can be an awesome place depending on the season. A problem with Palm Beach County and also South Florida is that technically there are NO legal off road riding spots, which I think is bullshit considering that Palm Beach County has over 31,000 acres that they manage for "environmental" reasons and also South Florida Water Management manages over 1,000,000 acres of land.

  12. Damn, I am down in Jupiter which is South East Florida and the LEGAL off road riding is scarce. Florida dual sport riding seems to get better as you travel north of Lake Okeechobee. Do you guys know of any South Florida riders?

    Crf250l gearing

    I just installed a front 13T sprocket and rear 42T sprocket. What a huge difference and I highly recommend it. The bike is so much better in the lower RPM's and much better off road. Cost me $13 for a JT front sprocket, $63 for a Renthal rear sprocket and a Primary Drive chain for $63.
  14. Looks nice! I have a 2017 CRF250L and installed the DRC Edge 2 Fender Eliminator Kit. Looks great, but the damn white license plate bulb just went out. I think it might be due to moisture building up in the housing. Keep us posted if you any issues.
