Race bike build

Keeping it on the less expensive side of racing, I am going to be racing the 2013 CBR250R in WERA and CCS.

WERA rules are SS, except no engine modifications.

CCS rules are SB and almost anything goes.


I will be building the bike to race both, I just can't open the engine cases because of WERA rules... unless I buy another engine to build and swap engines and Bazazz units for each organization.
No engine building keeps the bikes less expensive to build and maintain, keeps the classes competitive, and is more welcoming to new racers and younger racers. I sold the 600 race bike and will be racing the 250 this year exclusively.













One mile on it, parts are still rolling in.

When all parts get here and some progress is made I will update. I just brought this home last night.



Big thanks to Jason @ Sport Bike Track Gear for hooking me up with everything I'm going to need this year.
They sponsor the forum and are great people to deal with. Next time you need something, call STG and tell them I sent you.

yay 2013 colours on the forum finally...
Congrats on the purchase.. and technically your bike is supposed clock atleast 3-5 miles as part of your dealer's PDI (Pre Delivery Inspection). I dont think theyve tested it before delivering it to ya.

I told them I wanted it in the crate. They took it out anyway.

I'm going to have to drain the oil to safety wire the drain plug.
I'm going to drain the coolant and use distilled water and water wetter.
I'm going to install a stainless braided front brake line and use RBF600 fluid.
I'm draining the gas and running either 93 or MR12. I need to double check the rules on fuel and then get the bike mapped for that fuel.

Kinda a waste of fluids and time spent putting the mirrors on and what ever else they do for a PDI. The engine starts and the bike runs, that's all that needed to be checked.

I took the gas cap off and thought it broke it. The whole thing comes off?? No hinges? So cheap, I need to find a key-less gas cap that the ripper cap on my tuff jug fits into.

Lol that's one disadvantage. You gotta either hold it or keep it somewhere while you fill her up. Not a big hassle but couldve been avoided by the designer.

have you tried to fill up the 250? this is a great bike but the only downfall is filling it up with fuel. there is a metal diverter in the tank that makes filling this bike quickly is almost impossible.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

I'm going to remove the tank from the bike, cut it out around the base and wash the tank out really good. I might get a better shot at it if I take a fuel pump out.

why is it there in the first place? I've never seen a motorcycle gas tank like that before.
