Re: Zeta Handguards

Would it be worth upgrading to some Renthals?

Have fitted Renthals to every new bike I've ever had, and used all sorts (Cycra, Acerbis, cheap Chinese etc.) of handguards, and everything fitted without problems.
(As said the Cycra one's dearest, but best)

Plus the added bonus of non-bendy bars :)

Re: Honda 450L

Re: CRF250 L thread

Thank you all Whilst i take the point of using a Honda sprocket, as have always found original stuff lasts way longer than aftermarket, but as it does the same thing when I put the original back on (no rubber strips attached) suspect that's not the problem. Will go to Bransons tomorrow to have a loo...

Re: CRF250 L thread

I hope this doesn't sound like a dopey question, but will ask anyway........ I fitted a 13T (AFAM) front sprocket to my 200 mile CRF 250L, which felt like it had a bit of play in it so refitted the original Honda one that feels the same! Unfortunately didn't check before removing it, but my 250X one...

Re: fitting rear wheel?

Blimey!! How long is your crow bar if you can spread the swing arm with it one handed?? :shock: It can be a swine of a job on the trail with everything covered in crap, no proper stand, not the best of tools and a sweat on, so a good reason to use mooses! But at home (like said) a touch of grease to...

Re: Gas Gas Adventure 400

It look alright, and have no idea about the whole Brexit argument and angles, but when the words Gas Gas, Chinese and 8 grand popped up I was out!

And possibly not alone in making such a quick and simple decision.

Re: CRF250 L thread

Thanks for that 👍 Have read all info on here and a lot of other places (especially Minky's) but still not sure for example if the EJK thing actually does anything worthwhile, or seen as great by people who have paid for one and now don't want to admit it only makes a tiny difference! Think I'll do t...

Re: CRF250 L thread

As I've just bought a CRF250L this thread obviously looked interesting :D There seems to be a huge amount of information floating around the internet about which modifications are needed to turn it into the managable trail, road or TET type bike I hoped I'd bought. But now struggling to work out wha...

Re: 15% off lots of eBay bike stuff

Thanks for the tip
Managed to save a few quid of the pile of gear i'm buying that you apparently need to make a CRF 250L work as it should! :D :D

Re: Hello from between Hereford and Abergavenny

Hi and welcome :D Have a look at the lanes north of Leominster, around Knighton and over the Long Mynd in Shropshire. They aren't far from you, are big bike do-able and legal. All on the OS map and I can manage to plod around a lot of them on a TTR 600 single, so guess also on a big GS?? Would be ha...
