    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.
  2. If you are in Jupiter or if you want to ride in Palm Beach County send me a message.
  3. 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.

    What did you do to your crf250l today?

    Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T, rear is 120/90-18 and front is 80/100-21. JT 13T Front Sprocket. Renthal 42T Rear Sporcket. Primary Drive 520 ORH Gold X-Ring Chain, 106 links. Galfer Sintered Double H Front Brake Pad. EBC Sintered Double H Rear Brake Pad. Raised the rear suspension by adjusting the preload to the maximum height.

  6. 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.
  8. 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.

    New Owner of 2017 250L

    Had my 2017 for a few months and it is awesome! The bike has about 1500 miles on it so far. It is a regular thing for people to ask about it and compliment on how it looks.

    What's your "no BS" top speed?

    Is the stock speedometer not accurate?

    Places to ride near Jupiter, FL

    Went out to Corbett two weekends ago and it was flooded! Would be nice if it dries up this fall/winter even though we are getting a lot of rain right now. Damn near everything is illegal to ride around Jupiter. Hungryland has some good dirt roads. You can ride up and down the C-18 canal or other canals even though it is illegal. There are some small little pockets around town in between neighborhoods and apartment buildings, but nothing serious. Corbett seems to be the best place. Better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    How much weight can realistically be taken off?

    2017 CRF250L Weight: 317.5 lbs. 2018/2017 other dual sport weights (info from manufacturer): Suzuki DR200S: 278 lbs. Suzuki DR-Z400S 317 lbs. Yamaha WR250R 295 lbs. Kawasaki KLX250 304.0 lbs. KTM EXC-F 250 235 lbs. Husqvarna FE-250 238 lbs. Any thoughts on how the Husqvarna and KTM models are much lighter?

    are Cam Chain Tensioner problems frequent?

    I have a 2017 model with 1100 miles and the chain/tensioner makes noise in the 5000-6500rpm range. The noise started around 300 miles. I had a Honda F4I that also made chain/tensioner noise and I put on a manual tensioner, which eliminated the noise and slack. The F4I tensioner failed and I know that the tensioner in the CRF has not failed since it is damn near brand new. So is the tensioner in the CRF a bad design? Is it normal for this engine to have chain noise on a new bike? Does it vary from bike to bike? Hell if I know and I will continue to ride it like I stole regardless of this noise.
  15. I am in Jupiter. Most spots around Palm Beach County are illegal, but there are many places to ride.
