Originally I was planning to buy a Honda CRF 250 Rally. Hindsight is a bitch.
I have a Honda CRF250L and it spent almost two months in the shop with its engine stripped down to the last screw for a oil leak from the seam at the front of the case.
a disturbing amount of them have sprung that same leak.
so you could have just been in the same basket as the CRF is also prone to springing a coolant leak from the water pump seal.
