Still hovering between -6c and -20c here. Although spring comes March 20th I'll be happy if the bike is back out first or second week of April.

Whoever bought my 250 ended up with a few parts to a RAM mount in one of the fairings. I tried to get it out/find them for about 30-45 mins when it happened (wanted to re-use them), but then gave up...

I understand the clutch, but how do you remove the throttle cables for lubing?

To update, I haven't had as much time to ride this year as I had hoped, but I am at around 1600km on the CBR650F now so I wanted to post a review of sorts:

Engine: Definitely a strong one, and it...

THIS. Only time I dropped a bike was during the MSF course, and it was because I had the bars cranked to the left when letting out the clutch and giving it throttle.

I actually almost did the...

I normally just ask back "Do you wear a seatbelt?" If they answer yes (and 99% do), I just parrot back "I guess you're planning on crashing too". Normally works. lol

Congrats on the new bike -- I wouldn't call the 500 light by any means, but it definitely has more grunt than the 250.

Pretty sure the bike has a safety feature where it will not start with the throttle pinned. Best is to just clutch in then try releasing the clutch to see if you can 'push-start' it.

I only really notice it around 6000-6200rpm. I've talked to friends who own other 600cc I4 bikes and most mention the same thing -- there is a small range where the bike seems to vibrate/resonate a...

Top speed and higher speed acceleration doesn't seem that different than the old 250 -- I got mine as high as 163km/h at one point in time. 300 goes higher/faster, but still climbs at the same slow...

things like Tech-Spec or Stompgrip pads, or Tankslapper film are likely your best options. Personally I prefer Tech-Spec, and had them on my 250, but I just have the Tankslapper film on the new 650...

With the 250, it was manly rung out in top gear to get around 4.1. I'd get low 3s or potentially even less if I was using it at city speeds. Average was around 3.3-3.5 and that was either 100km/h+...

Nope not Canada -- we only get blue and silver here, both with ABS. I believe Tri-colour is for Europe.

Mine worked flawlessly right up until I traded it in for the CBR650F. Can't knock the 250 for anything, besides needing more passing power for the freeway.

As for others who had issues, I'm not...
