These guys are a bunch of rank amateurs. With a little effort the police can figure this out. Get the names, and make them pay for the damage.
If you don't push for this, the police will (most...

Not me. I prefer eco boost to ego boost any day, and I am very...

Do you clean and lube it with a quality wax fairly often, and is there any wear
on the sprockets?
At over 6000 miles my chain and sprockets are fine. I don't believe a few tight spots with an O...

I finally installed my new Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires today, which I had purchased

I agree with MM 100%. Use a good (great) oil (like Shell Rotella T), change it often, and you won't live long enough to wear the engine out.
Unless you abuse it, in which case no oil will help.

I would also check the fuel pump relay.
Do not assume that service people "must have checked" anything,
you are the one that cares the most.

The bike is worth whatever you are willing to pay. Often the area of purchase is a big factor. At one point I talked to a dealer in Miami who said he added $450 above retail to all CBR250Rs because...

What is the matte paint, and is it smooth or porous?
My real question is will it wash off easily, and will it be wax-able, or no?
And, yes it does look great.
Thanks

There is nothing quite as nice as buying a brand new, never ridden motorcycle.
And, if you feel like I do, the 2012 is much better looking due to the silver wheels.
That alone would sell me. A...

MM
actually, Duluth 238!
I agree with you that riding at temps below 50F - 55F is really not fun. Heated clothes,

Why would you want the cap to touch or rub on the paint?
If you push the cap down after filling and you hear it "click", or seat,
and the key goes back to the pull out position, it is fine.
