The CRF250L needs a proper sump guard, no question. This British-made guard by Adtek is a proper guard. The quality is top notch, solid 4mm thick alloy, and bent, welded and drilled to perfection. It slips into place like OE kit, there’s no levering, no sweating, no skinned knuckles. And there’s even a small tube of thread-lock included to ensure the bolts don’t vibrate free. And the protection is comprehensive, properly protecting not just the frame rails and sump, but the water pump too. And the plate’s even been drilled for easy sump plug access.
The guard has now been tested on countless rocks and roots and not been found wanting. Adtek customer service was also spot-on with overnight delivery.
