    Love the bike. Complete rebuild/restoration ($4000 or so). The 2nd/5th gears and 14R/48 sprockets are great choices. I love the look I've ended up with and couldn't be happier with the ride on and off road. Great bike for me.

  3. Who's up for a silly game, no prizes, just for shits n giggles... the rules: I start the game with an arty photo of my CRF, and I set a topic (eg. 'With a cactus' or 'on a bridge' or 'upside down' etc). The 1st person to post a photo of their bike doing that gets to set the next photo challenge. Nobody is to post without a photo, as the thread will get cluttered, and the challenges must be achievable, so no 'CRF on the moon' challenges, but thinking outside the box is positively encouraged so be as silly as you like! Let's get the ball rolling and see where it goes! My picture is 'CRF parked illegally' My challenge to the next person is 'CRF on a beach'

    this is just good for the soul.
  5. Just curious on who here has a GoPro? what are some of your setting you like to shoot at? I got the Hero 3 Blk edition. so far loving it. i got it almost a year ago and just started using it. (busy with work all summer) ive been playing around with the 2.7k or the 1080 @60fps. with protune on. i use to render my videos in the gopro studios... but i was very unpleased with how they would come out. the videos would be very grainy, or choppy. i switched to using adobe premiere pro cs5.. it takes much longer to completely render the video...but the final product is 100 time better than gopro studios i find. what are your thoughts about software, mounting, and the gopro accessories?
  6. So I'm 6'3", 230 lbs. I'm interested in this bike; everyone seems to like it and the price is certainly right. My fear is will it be enough for my height and weight? Fastest bike I ever owned was an 06 CRF450R. That bike was crazy powerful and fun but a little scary at times; had to tone it down a bit with a flywheel weight and aftermarket drive gear. I got my "M" endorsement last year and haven't yet put it to good use. Would like to commute and also go off-road sometimes. What do y'all think?
  7. Hello all, new to the forum but I've had my crf for about two months. Also done several thousand miles on various other (older) bikes of different styles. I've done a couple of 200ish mile day trips on the crf so far, and it has about 500 miles on it and rising. I have to go to Reading, Pa for a workshop may 12th through 14th and I live in Hattiesburg, Ms (around 1,000 miles away). I really REALLY hate flying. I love taking trips on motorcycles and I thought this would be a perfectly good excuse to take my first truly long trip. Figured I would go ahead and take a couple of extra days off and alot myself around three days there and three back. My bike is bone stock and a have a couple hundred bucks to upgrade it before my trip. Definitely need a better seat, any suggestions? What other accessories wil really make my life easier on the trip? Also, any good route or scenic stops I should check out along the way? This will be my first multi-day long distance trip. I know the crf250l is capable but not ideal (besides gas mileage). Any tips to make it run smoother would be great! Thanks guys!
  8. I have a rad guard on the left hand side but it has dawned on me that not much is protecting the coolant reservoir. Is there some line of protective bracket a available?
  9. Hi I am considering in buying CRF 250 L in couple of months an do a couple of mods. New seat for sure maybe some plastic changes and exhaust. I was looking for parts for 250 L but found only this "usable" web page (http://www.bikerzbits.com/) for plastic parts in Europe. Ordering from America is not an option because of all taxes and duties. Do you guys know any good page for ordering in Europe, especially for seats,exhaust and plastic for 250 L?
  10. As much as I wanted to keep it, however, my d/s plans changed, so I wound up selling it. I bought this bike initially to do the 1st 1/2 of the TAT on the eastern side of the USA this coming summer. It's the Perfect bike for those flatter, more open states. But now that we're doing the western side, CO, UT, NV, instead, I don't want to do it on 250L. I have my Husaberg for that. So I sold it. FOr those thinking about selling their 250L, you will be amazed at how quickly this bike sells itself. Mine sold on CL, took less than a week, and for the most part, most buyers were serious about buying mine. I got my asking price for it. Got some left over parts I'm selling, All the parts are practically brand new. Only had them on the bike for 300 miles, or a month. they're listed in my signature below.
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A4UxESmyV8 Published on Aug 15, 2014 My sister has been a victim of domestic abuse, her now ex boyfriend kidnapped her and when she tried to escape from him he ran her over her with a SUV and left her for dead on the side of the road. Thankfully she is still with us today and only received 3 fractures in her arm and multiple bruises on her body. This happen 3 days ago on 8/12/14. I'm posting this video asking for your help in spotting this bastard! More than likely he will be in or around Ponca City, OK or Blackwell, OK. His name is Brandon Hutchison. Alis is Slim. Please share so hopefully he can be caught, and my sister and her child can sleep in piece knowing this &%$#@! is behind bars where he belongs!! Please do not approach he is very dangerous, just call your local authorities. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and watch the video!!

  14. Any one seen the movie yet, heard it's out in the USA but not here in Canada yet.
  15. I was looking at a couple previous contests and realised that I haven't done one of these in a long time, actually Dec 4th was the last one... We've had 4 contests to date.... #1 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1023191-free-tires-mothers-day-hookup/page-1?hl=+free #2 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/997175-free-custom-numberplate-backgrounds/page-1 #3 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1034165-free-full-plastic-kit-for-you-dirtbike/page-1?hl=free #4 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1058526-free-number-plate-backgrounds2/ SO, LETS GET ANOTHER ONE OF THESE GOING!!!!! I'm not sure 100% what the prize will be, but it will be AWESOME! Could be anything from a Stabilizer Kit, Oversized Tank, OS rotor kit, set of RARE GOLDENTYRES, new gear, new plastics etc etc. I'm going to leave this one up to the you! In respect we will try to support TT and whatever the product is by buying the item from their store first...... In general I will let the winner decide what HE/SHE wants and it will be worth around the $300+/- mark So how do you WIN?????? In no-less then a short 5 sentence story AND A PICTURE (or more for brownie points), tell us how your year of riding has been. Tell us about a memorable ride with a friend or 2, maybe a wife or girlfriend, a race you entered whether you placed or pushed!? Maybe its your first year, how has it been, tough? Easy? Any and every story works as long as its related to dirtbiking. If you're serious about this, really put a good effort in as this is how I pick a winner...... As before, there is a deadline. The contest will end NOV 21st and a winner chosen over the following weekend....... GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!! And we all look forward to reading the great stories....
  16. So, I went with a friend yesterday to see the movie and thought it was very good... However it seemed to have missed some key Motorcycle events (In my opinion). There was absolutely "No coverage of the Baja 1000", Dakar Rally or the Ilse of Man TT. Needless to say I was a little bummed. But I did like the movie... 👍 Any thoughts???
  17. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/stash-box-lockable-license-plate-storage-box-by-twisted-throttle This looks very useful. However every product I can find like this is made of plastic. Anybody know of a stronger steel version?
  18. You have a new bike and you want it to last forever, could be why you picked a Honda. If all your pieces and parts are not treated with respect they will go away before their time. Corrosion is an often overlooked matter and widely misunderstood by the masses. Is rust corrosion? No, its oxidation, a type of corrosion. Corrosion, simply stated, is the break down of metals by chemical reaction in their environment. Dissimilar metal corrosion (also known as galvanic corrosion) is my main concern with bikes as they have a lot of aluminum parts connected to various other metals. All of these other metals must be considered to be chemicals that will attack the aluminum if allowed...just add water. Ever get your bike wet? I hope so or your not washing it as you should. Aluminum is quite low on the nobility scale...what's that mean? The lower on the Nobility scale a metal is the more prone it is to "giving itself up to other metals". Metals with high Nobility are referred to as cathodic, those with low Nobility are referenced as anodic...sound like I'm discussing batteries? I am. Any two dissimilar metals connected by an electrolite will form a current cell, otherwise know as a battery, however a battery really is two or more current cells connected together...not germain to this topic. Electrolyte? Electrolytes are chemicals that help induce current flow between dissimilar metals...water is good, salt water is better and acid is perfect. Stagnate water is quite good as it is has acidic properties. The water that gets trapped between your frame and its fasteners is stagnate, or soon will be after it sits a bit. The swamp water we love to spin around in is already stagnate upon application to your beautiful machine. Fresh water, in itself, is not a very good electrolite so keep washing with fresh water...just get it dryed off as quickly as possible. So then, the battery thing...when electrons start the galvanic flow from the anode to the cathode, the anode breaks down as it passes electrons to the cathode which weakens the anode material's molecular bond...this is what is happening when things corrode. The more electrons you have the stronger you are if you are a metal, for the purpose of this discussion. NOTE: if one is discussing current flow it is described as the opposite of what I'm stating above so don't get your panties in a knot if your an electrician type...I know current flow is the opposite of electron flow...I'm discussing how to save your motorcycle, not how to wire it. Anyway...we like to put Stainless Steel (SS) fasteners all over our bikes because they don't appear to rust (which is another great topic that I'll spare you on for now). Stainless Steel and aluminum are on oppiste ends on the nobility scale...bad JuJu unless you like to make batteries. The aluminum will always loose this battle if not properly protected from the SS. Copper, like the copper washers we like to use as high pressure oil seals is the worst for mixing with aluminum. "But I always see these against aluminum on motors without an issue" you say and your right...if you think about it, they are used on oil lines...the oil keeps the water out and is a terrible electrolite. That is the only reason the aluminum dosen't disentigrate in that application. If you like to experiment take a square of raw aluminum plate and put it in a bowl of salt water, place a penny on top of it and come back in a week to see what happened to the aluminum. A penny sitting in the salt water filled bilge of an aluminum boat will eat a hole right through the bottom of the boat in no time. (BTW, I build aluminum boats...hence my knowledge of this topic). If you've ever pulled a stainless bolt out of your bike that passes through the aluminum engine case it likely had white powder all over it...this is aluminum oxcide...in that case it was likely caused from water trapped around the SS bolt. If left unchecked it will lead to pitting and ultmately a hole in your engine case. So how can you protect this from happening? You can't in all applications but its a good idea to do what you can, where you can. Basically all one needs to do is create a barrier between the dissimilar metals and / or seal the water out...either works quite well. There is a product not well known about, outside the marine industry, called "TefGel". It is an anti-seize and barrier coating commonly applied to stainless steel hardware where it touches aluminum on boats. It works with any dissimilar metals as a barrier coat and lasts a long time where it can't be washed off...like on bolt threads and shanks and between washers and bolt heads. "Oh, I have some anti-seize in my garage" You Say...nice... Watch out when using it with aluminum, since most anti-seize contains copper and will eat your aluminum in due time. Another trick I learned on boats is the application of self adheasive UHMW sheet material on washers and between dissimilar metal components where water may get trapped. UHMW , ( Ultra High Molecular Weight ) is a super dense, yet pliable, plastic (polyethylene) that can take a lot of torque when in compression. The self adheasive sheets are easy to cut with a razor knife to the desired shape and will form a barrier that prevents galvanic corrosion. So remember... when your bolting that shiny new SS rack against your bare aluminum frame, a bit of UHMW will save you from the aluminum corroding behind the SS flange or what have you. TefGel and loctite don't mix...I like to put a dot of loctite on the thread then coat the upper part of the fastener with TefGel where the fastener head will bare on the aluminum. That's all it takes to preserve your aluminum from the SS. Where your not using Loctite, coat the whole fastener with TefGel...it will not only prevent the corrision, it also makes disassembly easier as it is a great antisieze compound. Where hardware and hard parts are prone to corroding but can't be sealed, painted or isolated use a spray on corrosion inhibitor like Honda "Quicksilver" corrosion guard. Its made for outboard motors but who knows corrsion better than boat guys?...it will need to be re applied occasionally but will prevent your parts from dieing before their time. Keeping your bike clean and sealed will help it last forever.
  19. Was wondering if we could do the same thing as many of the other TT forums are doing... A thread dedicated to just images of our CRF's whether it be the entire bike, macro shots, detailed shots or action shots, as long as every single post has an image. I went through the 40 page thread pinned to the top and although I value the information, I just wanted to see images of what others have done. I'll start with mine. I haven't taken delivery yet but the dealer was kind enough to take a shot of the actual bike and send it over to me. Hope we can get this going especially with the 2014 due out soon. Can I humble ask to get this pinned to the top?
  20. Let's all load this up with the good stuff found out there for our new bike...could be a good place to let the after market guys know what we want as well. Just tossing it out there...as the demand rises the parts will come.
  21. ME--It rained all day and the Hawks were playing and WON :banana:
