Who still races the CBR250R?

Hey - Just checking in to see if anyone (other than me) is still racing a CBR250R? I've been pretty competitive this year, but I'm the only CBR250R that I know of in CMRA. Now that Ari has moved up to that ******************** 390, am I the only one left?

You're the only one, other than the guy I sold mine to in November.

I'm glad to hear there are still some folks racing these bikes. I'm a huge fan of their handling and low-end grunt.

I'll be racing one this year for MCRA, currently researching the entire aftermarket world to see just how far we can take this motor.

Cameron - Building the motor is important on this bike, but it has taught me a ton about riding fast. The little bike turns, brakes and drives out of a corner better than any of its competitors. If you can learn to drive it fast in the corners, you can do a lot to overcome it's lack of top end speed. Good luck!

Once the engine is built to make more power are you running taller gearing? I know Ari was running 15-43T for top speed gains

Yes. I tested out a bunch of gearing, from much shorter than stock to taller. Finally found that Ari had it right. Running 15, 34 now at all tracks.
