Kia ora Badass,
I hail from Aotearoa too, and do hanker after getting back. I had hoped to be back about now, but kind of got trapped into teaching another term here, so now looking to a Q1/2 '13 return.
The bike you have is the wild four from Japan, long since out of production. This forum focuses on the mild thumper from Thailand that first appeared on the market a couple of years ago.
As a motorcycle, I reckon yours is a far more exciting machine. However, the current incarnation is interesting (to me at least) as fuss free transport.

Hi, i've also just purchased a 1989 cbr250r and as im a first time rider i have very little knowledge maintanence of the bike. I've done alot of youtubing and it has worked very well but when i go to do an oil change i get a little nervous just incase i unscrew the wrong thing or something like that. The bit where the oil filter is is just below and a bit to the right of where the oil is poured into yes? I have found the bolt underneath the bike that needs to be undone to drain the pre-existing oil, i just need to make sure im taking off the correct part to change the oil filter before i actual do it. Any advice would be appreciated !
