    Trail Tech Voyager GPS Kit

    Havnt used it yet but I bought this and installed it. All the parts are quality. My wife bought it for me as a supprise, the speedo sensor was incorrect. I contacted tech support and they were able to identify and fix my problem right away. (It was my fault so I had to buy a new sensor. It was a $53.80 mistake but thats okay). For a 2018 Honda CRF250R, you have to drill the front brake caliper/mount to attach the speedo. Its not necessary for the unit to work but it will help to avoid your bike accumulating trail mapping and miles while the bike is being transported in the back of a truck. Plus, I might eventually make this bike street legal so its a necissary step in THAT direction. Ill update this once I get some hours of use with it.

    Pro Moto Billet Kickstand

    I ordered this kickstand for a 2018 CRF250R. It came and was WAAAAYYY too long. (See photos). I had to send it back and get it altered. Not sure if they just gave me a different one or actually altered the one I sent back. Either way it fits like a glove now. I havnt ridden with it yet but it looks clean and it super light.

    The bike is actually a 2018 CRF250R. The websites drop down menu doesnt have 2018 model years yet. I rode for a couple of years in highschool before my 80’s YZ150 was stollen. Im still getting used to riding again after taking a 10 year break. This bike feels perfect for me as a confident novice rider. So far, Ive only ridden tight, forest single track in the very wet and snow in Walker Valley Washington state. I have abused it (stalling repeatedly on roots and mud) nearly the entire time I have owned it. It has taken a few small spills but holds up fairly well. Some denting on the exhaust tip, some very small crushing on one of the foot pegs and some small deflection on one side for the radiator mount. I havnt adjusted any of the suspention settings, I really need to learn the bike before I start “softening up the front forks” like everyone claims it needs. Im 180 lbs so the bike feels stable and only slightly stiff on the front end when riding over rocky logging roads at higher speeds. I havnt messed with the ECU mapping choices other than the most mild. I am enjoying become the rider this bike deserves!

    Batteries Plus was the second place I tried. When I didnt see a battery with the same ratings on the shelf, I asked the guy working for help. He took my battery in one hand and picked up one off the shelf. Set it down and picked up another. Then said, “This should work.” And walked away. Didnt fill me with a whole lotta confidence. I didnt get it. (Obviously). Im just worried Ill do damage to the electrical system by not using the right battery. Im car savvy but not bike. Maybe Im being a worry wart.

    2018 new bike time

    Hey guys! I see this tread may be dead but I need help. I bought a 2018 CRF250R and was putting some mods on it. I accidently touched a tool from the positive battery terminal to the frame and POP! There goes $500 bucks! The li-ion battery has a non servicable fuse inside it! Ive been looking for a new battery that doesnt cost 500 bucks for about 4 months now. I ordered an aftermarket one from the dealer (for a CRF450... same battery) for about $200+ but because of the tade tarrifs on China (Im in the States) its been placed on back order, posibly until politics change. *sigh Any pointers to a better thread or any ideas at all are greatly appreciated. I miss riding, I seriously havnt ridden since winter. (See pic of my last ride). 😥
