The red white and blue one that is coming looks great. They should just call it the Honda Interceptor.

agreed!

it looks to be there to protect the top of the fuel pump or filter. it appears to be welded to the flat with the hole in it. it may be possible to pry it to the side or pull the tank and then the fuel pump to squeeze the "V" flat and leaving it there to protect what's beneath it. if it were removed completely care would have to be taken on each fill up so not to cause damage and bigger problems than just slow filling.

i will be one handed for few months and won't be able to mess with it to find a "simple-safe cure.

A gentleman on the cbr250r forum has replaced his front sprocket, He used one with one less tooth. Says it reduces the rpm by 7%. His first trial run netted 91 mpg US.. I'd say that was fairly impressive for highway commuting in cold weather.

...?

Going down a tooth on a front sprocket increases rpm @ all speeds.

This is what most of us with the CBR125R's have done-replaced the stock 15T with a 14T in order to better utilize 6th gear. It bumps the rpm up by nearly 1000 and allows easier full redline in top gear instead of dropping out of the power and bogging out, having to shift back down to 5th all the time.

The drawbacks, are a mega short first gear which is only good for about the length of a narrow intersection, instantaneous lock up of the rear tire if you accidently shift all the way down to first instead of second for a slow/tight corner, and abysmal mpg numbers. I estimate I've dropped at least 10% from high 90's down to mid 80's for the last 3 years or so.

Still worth it though. Much more lively overall.

Alright, you're cracking me up, I have to tell you a joke now.

When you like whiskey in your egg-nog, you know you're a drunk.

My dog likes riding motorbikes. He doesn't want to do it, but he respects it, he understands it.
At first he looks a little worried, like, dude, don't do it.
But when you come back, he's like wow, I can't believe you didn't kill yourself just then.
Then he's all smiley and winky at you like, you're going try it again though, right?

^You can't hardly go wrong with this bike, it's about all I need for what I do mostly. Take good care with those new tires until you use them a bit. 41f and drizzle this morning, turned on the heated gear. I haven't had any problems running a liner and gloves. Here is a picture of the controller which operates the glove liners and coat both. It's a little busy looking but works well for me with no problems. The lifetime average for the bike is about 65mpg US. I fill with a can now as that is more fun and I hardly ever go to the gas station.

If I found another bike, that was this much fun, I'd for sure get it, hehehe.

Well, thank you for all of your activity in this thread. I have been following it for a long time and enjoying your story with this bike.

Question Question

Hey Guys!

So I got a question about the CBR250 for those of you who have ridden it for some time now...
Is it an interstate capable machine? How does it feel at 70 mph?

I live in a rural area, and mostly ride at 55-60 mph, but about once a month I drive to St. Louis, which is about 2 hour trip (1 hour at 55-60 mph and 1 hour at 65-70 mph). Does the CBR struggle at interstate?

I currently ride 07 Ninja 250, but fuel injection (no more choke) and better gas mileage really make me think...
I was reading something that Ninja 250 is a slightly better highway machine, but how much difference is there really?

Thank you!
