I'm calling BS. 1 post? Where are the pictures? Any proof you actually owned a 250? How many miles did you put on the bike that you needed to do all that?

If you REALLY have a 250, learn how to change the chain, sprockets, and brake pads yourself. Anyone could change them out and save $$$. That's general maintenance and comes with any motorcycle.

Tires and pads are wear items, they don't last forever.

I had originally hoped that this would be a cheap commuting option- how wrong I was. What a lemon!!!
Wouldn't surprise me if "DaleK" is really our pal DudeMan... it has been awhile since he's come in here to stir up sh!t and serve up more of his famous turd sandwiches. After re-reading the post, it strikes me as having his trademark "all over the place" rambling tone to it.

The greatest trick dudeman ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist.

Me and pretty much everyone I know has ridden Honda bikes for the past 25 years. I've had 4 different Honda dirt bikes, my dad's owned a cbr 600rr and a f4i, and now I'm on my CBR 250. Never had a single problem with any of them.

I don't think Honda has the capability to make a bad motorcycle, you must have gotten really unlucky to get a bad one.

I'm sure Honda just like everyone else has produced some lemons. I remember Gold wing frames cracking a decade ago as an example. I don't however believe the company does it intentionaly.

I don't know anything about the execs at Honda or their agendas but I'd wager that the big man (Mr Honda) hates the very idea of producing anything less than a perfect machine. I think he and his standards alone are responsible for the company's good rep.

While not infallible, I think they're a bit farther ahead than their competition in the reliability department.

You guys don't have to defend Honda here, we all know that they build quality products.

Let's just call a spade a spade... (pardon me, but I think this requires use of the bold font)...

THE OP IS JUST PLAIN FULL OF SH!T
