DIY skid plate for Honda CRF 300 L

Yes, it is horrible and will not survive any sort of remotely rougher use. I just wanted something to protect the lower part of the bike from the rock shower until I can find I proper one I like. I would prefer plastic over metal because of how the metal ones tend to resonate the…

Adjusting throttle free play on Honda CRF 300 L

There was a significant amount of slack on the throttle cable from the factory. This is not helping as the throttle response is snatchy as it is. IMO a little less play gives you better control of the throttle. *** KEEP IN MIND THAT I’M NOT A CERTIFIED MECHANIC. DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES TO…

Been a while… The memories from the 250 Rally have been haunting me to a point where I decided to ditch the cruiser life and return to the wonderful world of small cc but larger than life adventures. The problem is, there are no bikes anywhere! Retailers have sold out all Rallys and Ls. Next…
