Seat Concepts is now offering their popular complete seat for the CRF250L in a "Tall" version that is about 3/4" to 1" taller than stock. Shown above is the tall seat, with the black carbon vinyl sides / black gripper top seat cover. It's also available with red carbon vinyl sides / black gripper top, as well as an all black carbon vinyl cover.
I tried one of these out and it's equally as comfortable as the standard height seat, and looks great on the bike. Seat Concepts shaped the seat so that, even though it's nearly an inch taller, it looks just like the standard height seat. And like the standard height seat, it is about 2" wider than the stock seat at it's widest point.
If you are looking for a more comfortable seat for your CRF250L, and something slightly taller, this is the ticket.
This week only and while supplies last... SRmoto has marked down all FMF Performance Exhaust Packages for the Honda CRF250L, Yamaha WR250R, and Yamaha WR250X. These are the lowest prices we've ever had on these packages, and prices are good only while supplies last. Click links below...
We've had our Grom for about 2 months now and already have almost 1000 miles on it. Just the other day I managed a 160 mile day on the thing, and was all smiles the whole time. It's not very fast, but going 45mph on this thing has the feel of 75 mph, making it a total hoot on some of the twisty roads around our shop.
I can't help but recommend one to anybody looking for something to blast around the back roads on. It would also make for a fun and economical commuter bike.
We've got more mods planned, including a Zeta Racing Pivot Clutch Lever, Galfer Brake Lines/Pads, some sort of graphics kit, and we're going to try out the Hotbodies Racing Rear Fender Eliminator as well.
If you're looking for an easy and affordable way to carry an extra gallon of fuel around on your Honda CRF250L, checkout our CRF250L Cargo Rack and Rotopax Fuel Pack Package Deal.
This handy package includes...
• One (1) CRF250L Cargo Rack / Top Plate
• One (1) Rotopax One Gallon Gasoline Pack
• One (1) Rotopax Pack Mount
Installation is very easy... first you install the Cargo Rack, which bolts directly to the sub-frame of the bike and sits atop 4 spacers that go through the rear fender and place the rack about 1/2" above the fender. Once the cargo rack is installed, you just attach the Rotopax Pack mount to the cargo rack's keyhole bolt holes, and then use the quick release to mount the Rotopax 1 gallon gas container. It's as simple as that.
When you're not using the Rotopax Fuel Pack, you can easily remove the mounting unit from the cargo rack, and use the rack to carry other items, like duffel bags or tail bags.
If you're looking to give your Yamaha WR250R or WR250X a retro look, we're now offering Yamaha WR250R/WR250X Retro Tank Shroud Graphics, which can be paired with our Yamaha WR250R/WR250X OEM Plastic Kit to give your bike a unique look.
Shown above is our Yamaha WR250X Project Bike with the Red/Black/White Retro Tank Shroud Graphics and a Yamaha WR250R/WR250X OEM Plastic Kit in black.
We're now carrying the very trick looking CNC Machined Aluminum Gas Caps from Zeta, anodized in either blue or titanium silver. They will fit the stock WR250R and WR250X gas tanks (won't fit IMS gas tanks), and are very easy to install, only requiring you to replace the stock fuel outer caps. Included with each gas cap is a Uni-flow vent tube and cap, as well as installation instructions.
It was time to do a coolant change on our DRZ400SM Project Bike, so we thought it was the perfect time to replace the bikes radiator hoses. We went with a DRC Radiator Hose Kit, which consists of three hoses that are custom fit for the DRZ400SM and DRZ400S. Each is made of a durable silicone material that has a high heat resistance and a smooth inner shape and surface to allow for increased coolant flow. They're available in two colors, red or blue. We chose red, which turned out to be a nice contrast on our white and blue bike.
If you're looking to replace that big ugly chain cover on your Yamaha WR250R or WR250X, Zeta Racing offers these slick looking CNC Machined Aluminum Heel Guard / Chain Covers. They are available in anodized titanium silver (top photo), anodized blue (bottom photo) or anodized black (not shown). They bolt right up to the OEM swingarm mounting locations using the stock mounting hardware (no modifications required).
One of our more popular rack/bag combinations for the Yamaha WR250R (and WR250X) is a Wolfman Peak Tail Bag mounted to a Pro Moto Billet Cargo Rack. This setup works great for carrying things around on the back of your WR250R Dual Sport or Yamaha WR250X Supermoto. The tail bag fits the Pro Moto Billet rack perfectly and is secured by wrapping its four mounting straps around the outer edges of the cargo rack.
For its size, the Peak tail bag holds quite a bit of stuff. The bags contents can be accessed very easily... you just un-zip the heavy duty zipper that runs around the top of the bag, then flip the top open (see photo above bottom/left). Internally, two straps keep its contents stable, and the top bungee-web is a great place to keep gloves and other things handy when off the bike. An expandable 4" gusset makes room for even more cargo when fully unzipped. The bag is stiff-sided to retain its shape and looks, whether empty or full. An optional waterproof cover is available as well.
We've been running Pro Moto Billet Fastway Evo 3 footpegs with their F5 cleats on our Yamaha WR250R Project bike. This could be one my favorite mods for these bikes, since the factory pegs are so flimsy and narrow. The Pro Moto Billet Fastway footpegs are considerably wider and have more aggressive F5 serrate pin cleats, not to mention three rows of them (11 in each footpeg).
Installation is pretty simple. The first thing you have to do is install the cleats in each footpeg. Pro Moto Billet (PMB) includes loctite and a special tool for you to use. Once you get that done, you need to remove the stock footpegs. The left side comes off real easily, but the right one takes a bit longer since you need to move the rear brake lever out of the way. Once that's done, it's just a matter of putting on the new footpegs and then playing around with the various adjustments (see below) to suit your riding.
One of the biggest advantages to these Evo 3 footpegs is their adjustability. They incorporate a patent pending Universal Collar System that allows you to choose from standard or lowboy seat-to-peg height positions. I went with the Lowboy position, which is slightly lower than stock, and I like how that setting positions the pegs in relation to the shift and brake lever. In addition to that, there is a FKMS (Fast Kamber Mounting System) which allows you to adjust the upward and downward tilt of the pegs using a bolt/shim setup on the backside of the peg. I ended up going with no shims, which keep the footpegs pretty much flat.
These footpegs feature Pro Moto Billets patented replaceable traction cleat system. With the F3, you get two sets of F3 threaded cleats – short 10mm, and tall 12mm cleats; which allow you to customize the shape and traction level of your footbed. Set them up all tall, all short, arched center, tall outside, tapered, or get creative! There is also an F5 Serrated cleat, which offers a bit more traction than the F3. When you order the F5, you will also get a set of the F3 cleats so you actually get two sets of cleats.
I love these things! The wider platform feels much better than the narrow stock pegs, especially when standing up. I also like the lower "lowboy" position since it puts my boots in a better spot to shift and brake, plus it gets me a little lower on the bike. Overall I think this is one of the best mods for the WR250R.
