Popped into Dirt Shop where they have an accorised CRF250L jammed into their shop window
Most probably the one at that was on display at the BKK Bike Show

Dirt Shop's contact details found at this post

It was something of an abortive mission as Dirt Shop did not have the official aftermarket Honda accessories.
Nor do the have all their own tricked-out CRF parts in stock.

But I'll post what I gleaned for those interested in what is available and what prices are known

They are using ZETA bars and MX handguards.
Also mini indicators and after market mirrors.

THE bars have an older 1290THB and a newer 1790THB sticker
The ZETA MX handguards are 1890THB
Personally I would get Ian’s Acerbis guards with the additional bracing of aluminium end bar.

The Renthal Bar option

only 2990THB

Renthal grips at 590THB

Aftermarket mirrors on the show bike were out of stock.
Dirt Shop had these on offer

at 3290THB

On the front forks they had added these carbon slider guards at 3000THB

Lowers had been adapted from another bike and the fella at Dirt Shop was unsure if they could supply a set for a buyer!

You will need to speak to Dirt Shop again if you are interested in the other tasty carbon X-Speed Motors parts.

DRC Motard FootPegs are 1900THB, but out of stock at the moment.

The rear rack is only available from Honda dealers.
Dirt Shop thought that they were in stock now…

The “spaghetti” rack seems rather insubstantial compared to the one Bungy developed for the KLX with Somchit.

Perhaps the subframe or mounting points won’t allow for something chunkier?

The rear rack, mini indicators, number plate relocator and carbon exhaust cover.

According to Dirt Shop they expect a S/S Yoshimura can should be available in a month or two at approx.13,000THB
based upon a similar Yoshi can for the KLX.
A locally made can should be coming in a couple of weeks….

Dirt Shop do have a small workshop if you are planning to buy a new bar, grips and hanguards
and want them fitted. But give them a call check what they have in stock and book the bike in.

Thanks Rhodie! Have to admit, It looks bloody good with all the gear on it and I will be hitting some of the catalogue up. That along with some sensible performance mods and you will have a nice bike to hack around on.

The Honda CRF250L is now sold in 3 shops in KK with a bit of price difference. In the first shop is was and still is 130k cash or 140k with down-payment. In the other shop it was 135k cash and also 140k with down-payment. Both prices incl. insurance, tax and green-book.

So finally had the chance to sit on 1 and it is for sure too high for me. Although I see options for lowering I think it would be easier to buy a D-tracker for fun (as I can ride it standard). But it seems to me that the motor of the CRF is much more fun.

Well, no follow up on this thread for the last 4 years ;) Must be more CRF250L riders on the forum now?

I`m seriously considering buying the 250L for use in my home country in Scandinavia. But there is one thing I wonder about, did Honda do any upgrades on this model since it was released?

In Thailand you have the choice between the KLX and the CRF. But in Scandinavia, like Australia, its possible to get a Yamaha WR250R, and that's what Id be buying if I was looking for a bike in that class.

Hi Nomade, I don't think there have been any upgrades to either the CRF or the KLX since they were released with Fuel Injection? Just Graphics. Both are good Bikes. The KLX is Tougher. The CRF is Smoother and easier to Ride. But there are Loads of Extras available for them now too many to List so it is all about how much You want to Spend?
