CRF250L 2019 again...

Recommended Posts

What did honda do to lower their latest crf models and how could i modify my front fork in order to be at the same height of pre 2017 models?

One can clearly see that my fork (first pict.) Is sitting much lower than the older model (second picture). Should i add more oil or maybe a longer spring?

Thanks for helping me.20190122_174804.jpeg20190122_180531.jpeg

Those specs must certainly be from honda EU or USA.
As you can see in the Thai brochure, seat height is at 830mm and ground clearance 211mm.They shaved 40mm for the Thai riders to be able to put their feets on the ground.
My question is how can i regain those 40mm; for the rear, i've found after market shock links enabling me to do it but what about the fork, how can i "extand" it.20190126_171949.jpeg

Don't know I'm 32" inside let and my boots are only just about flat.

Maybe your rear suspension has had a dog bone part lowering kit fitted.

Use these parts from the 2013 - 2016 model.

 So for the front fork you need to change two parts (both are OEM parts used on the 2013-2016 model):

12: ROD 51426-KZZ-901
13: DAMPER, FR. 51430-KZZ-901

For the rear. a YSS shock is your best buy. You can buy the OEM but it is garbage - altho it will raise the back up.

Or fork out 20K and get a full Ohlins setup front and rear. Still need the damper rod tho'

Thanks a lot canthai55.
The parts on your picture are, i presume, the rods, old model on the left and new on the right what are the damper?
And how many do i need to order? One or two? I believe one side of the forks has the spring and the other side the oil; the rod and damper are only for the side with oil isn't?
Thanks again for enlightening me.

Apologies for earlier doubting that the Big Red could/would have an Asian version of a dual sport bike which should be, er, tall.

But that's corporate Big H for ya.

I just never have got the Love In that is the worldwide sales success of this thing.

Perhaps because it is CHEAP and has an H on the tank...

 

It has an engine based on a road motor.

The motor has a weird bottom end bearing set up.

It has cheapo non adjustable suspension.

 

I never understood why the KLX was never a bigger seller here or in Europe. An extra 25-30k TB gets you;

 

Excel wheel rims instead of DID

Fatter S/S spokes

FULLY adjustable suspension front and rear

An engine with a design pedigree going waaaay back and designed in partnership with Suzuki who's version was the DRZ400

Normal DOHC top end design

Normal bottom end design with normal main bearings

A very stout strong engine that has several known cases of going 250-300,000 kms without splitting the bottom end inc 300-330cc big bore conversions

No known problems inc, ahem,  cam chain tensioners

etc etc etc

 

Perhaps it is just me and my bias and lack of love for the Honda brand. I have never really liked their products, nor their politics, nor what they always stood for - not cool, middle of the road, your parents would like them, bland, safe nada yada da bing.

You meet the nicest people on a Honda.

Exactly.

I rest my case.

 

Why do i never see a complaint on here about a KLX?

Let the good times roll...

You got that goddam right Team Green.

 

Edit, the helpful bit;

check out Bikerzbits website in Thailand. They have everything for the CRF inc stock parts at crazy cheap parts. You should be able to cross check different model/year parts from the drop down menu.

Yep, yep & yep.

Not disputing any of your points.

Can we add bland and why don't they offer a beige colour, ya know, the sort of colour your granny would knit a cardigan with....

If those are just spacers to make the damper rod longer, and they are made of aluminum, don't think I would trust them. The damper rods - stock - are steel.
