    CRF450L Build Updates

    Is it a switched power port? I normally have one directly to the battery for battery tender and another one switched for a GPS.
  3. Hi NetMagi, I did have a chance to watch your video and you convinced me, that for now I should stick with my moded out WR250R. Unlike you , I don’t ride pavement to the trails. The closest trails from my house are over 60 miles and the closest single track trails are over 120 miles. Even once I get to trails, it’s a combination of pavement, gravel roads and trails. That is why I need a dual sport bike. From your review, the WR is smoother, doesn’t vibrate as much and has a more linear throttle response. I have a 13/48 combination, which is good for trails and up to 55MPH and if I go on a long trip for several days I will put a 14/48 combination. I am also 160lbs over 5’8” at best, with the rework of the suspension , I think it’s probably similar to the stock CRF450L. Yes the CRF is probably 50% more powerful and because of that better on pavement, but I think I will wait for now.
  4. Wow, I am at work, but I will have to watch your full video at home. It’s exactly what I am looking for. I own a farkeled out WR250r with lower gearing , revalved suspension, fuel programmer and and an FMF Q full exhaust system. Also a rear rack , Edge lights, speedo corrector, Scotts stabilizer, DOT off road tires, Renthal handle bars and more. I put over $2K on the bike and it’s probably the best it will ever be. Your riding style is similar to mine. I do very little pavement, and enjoy the AMA sanctioned dual sport rides. 2 track , single track , ATV trails , Snow mobile and forest roads. Currently living in Mn , the season is even shorter here. Is it really worth it? I don’t need more bike than my WR250r, I am not an Enduro racer, it’s good enough on the tight stuff, and comfortable enough on the road at up to 55MPH (48 rear sprocket) I wish it was lighter, and a little more powerful. Thanks for the video.

    Newbie confusion

    I think if only trail riding mostly woods single track , a CRF250X or a WR 250F are a great choice. If no single track but mostly 2 track, ATV trails, snowmobile trails gravel roads and short road rides to get gas, a DRZ 400, XR650L or a WR250R would be a better choice.

    MN OHM GPS Maps

    If you send me your e-mail, I can send you the Image file I downloaded last year once I get home. If I remember correctly, the maps were from 2013. Thanks,

    rivet vs clip master link.

    I have always used a clip on my ds bikes and never had an issue. Easy field replacement too. You should be fine.

    WR250R resale

    I bought a pristine 2013 with 900 miles no mods for KBB price of $4900. I think people don't like paying extra for mods. You are better off with parting them separately. That’s what I did when I sold my Tiger 800. I will buy your skid plate and a seat concept seat if it’s the low version. Rear rack if you have one too. Thanks,
  11. Thanks for the info guys, and Glen, I used to live in Eden Prairie, but that was a while ago, I am only 10 miles north of there and a little closer to Minneapolis.
  12. I am not talking about road kilometers, I am talking about two track (ATV trails) forest roads and single track with a little pavement in between. I sometimes do 150+ days of them in North MN and North Wi. I own a DRZ400S and a WR250R. The WR250R and is completely stock and the DRZ is jetted and with an open air box. I actually think the DRZ is the better bike for fast trails and I think it has better stock suspension and definitely more power. The advantage of the WR is it being light weight and as a 250 it’s definitely more maneuverable in the tight woods. I used to own a 250 simple dirt bike, but I don’t own one anymore as I barely rode it since I can do almost anything with the DRZ other than a full day of single track. I want one bike that would be good at tight woods single track and hard core dual sport. Maybe a DRZ 400 or a WR250R are the only option, but I am intrigued by the Husky and the KTM. Allon
  13. I am interested in knowing which bike would be better for Aggressive dual sport and single track riding? They are both street legal and I wanted to know which one would be better for duties such as 150 miles dual sport for several days (asphalt, forest roads, two track and single track ) to days that are single track woods exclusive. On dual sport trips, I would like to add luggage . Contemplating if it's worth the upgrade and with increased maintenance and expenses for someone who doesn’t race and is a middle aged C rider at best.

    Best aftermarket tank with a corbin seat

    Thanks, I used to have a Clarke on my DR350 and liked it although I thought it was a little big. I might go for the IMS 3.2 Gallon. Never heard of a Safari. I do like the Corbin on the DRZ much more than the one I had on the DR350. Much lighter and narrower.
  15. I have a DRZ400S with a corbin seat and looking to buy a larger aftermarket gas tank. I know there are a few options. I would like to have one that does not require modifications to accommodate both, looks good and doesn't interfere riding standing up. Thanks,
