This very bad tendency completely disappeared. I read all the instructions - clear enough for the most part. So a 08 09 header may not fit in on my bike? The hardware looks as good or better than the stock hardware. The collar is 1mm longer than the tube from the sending unit, so the axle sticks out. Again, setting the torque via the bolt head isn't according to the book, but I did it anyway.
Mount the grilles with small zip ties, two at the top and two at the bottom. They all run to the vertical center line. After adjusting the axle back to get the correct chain slack, I had enough room to re-install the lower chain guide. I finally found a battery powered unit sold at bicycle shops. I used two of the smaller size.
Adding a rear hydraulic brakelight switch makes the package almost complete. I trimmed the ends to shorten the grip slightly usually I keep the donut ends and just cut out the centers. The numbers for both radiators turned out to be the same for each test, so I only show one temperature number degrees Fahrenheit. I may or may not use these, but I hafta see if they're different or not. I installed the forks in the stock mounting position in the triple camps, fork tube top flush with the upper triple clamp edge. The right side was a problem. It fit closer to the engine case and the angle was a bit higher, so it was better as far as I'm concerned.
I've used other guards with rod braces and I like the design. The X looked like the R but was a very different bike. The throttle operates almost effortlessly. The 250X does not have a neutral sense wire. There is a foam layer that is designed to squish a bit with the mounting method, but the new foam took some effort to compress. If you look closely, you can see the rod behind the grating. After a little thought, I decided this was not a good idea.
My bike's serial number in these pictures has been rendered illegible. So I decided to grind a few teeth off my brake pedal. Some of the information is opinion, mine or someone else's. Slimline for maximum ground clearance, ultra lightweight, matt finish and protecting one of the most vulnerable parts of the machine, these could save you £'s in the event of an accident. Outboard end of spark arrester. They're supposed to be plenty tough, and the 230F unit has held up well so far. Notice that I don't have an odometer or other gear in the middle of the area that the brake line passes over.
I have to swap the two plates at the back of the clutch pack also. Note - the instructions for both protectors say to remove the fork wear rings. Forks - shortening Jeff Slavens shortened the front forks 1. I'll try to get a conversion process and report more accurate numbers. Any overflow fuel will spill onto the skid plate and evaporate.
When no year is shown, the information applies to all years - '04, '05, '06, '07, and '08. More info: I mounted one of each protector on the forks and I will see which one works the best. Sort of the 'naked bike' look of road bikes. They make the bike stand out too much. I've been practicing popping up the front wheel at slow speeds.
Click on small pictures to supersize. Loosen the fork clamp bolts. The X brake line is about 6. Easy install, despite having a strap and two tabs. Thanks to Brooks at 12oclockLabs.
I urge readers to read and understand what Honda is telling you here, and then make thoughtful decisions according to your own needs. Although described as a 3. Measuring fuel; I use a graduated container to measure fuel; in milli-liters aka cc. It feels light and easy to dominate, and generally encourages you to go faster and faster.

After a few minutes, the temperature on the Racetemp strip started climbing. My thumb is on the horn button; my finger is resting on the horn itself. Shock Shox have the velcro closure. So although the engine is peppier now, that may change as I take steps to reduce the sound level.
