What a colossal waste of time that would be.
If you want more power, just go buy a CB500R.
Otherwise appreciate the CBR250R for what it is.

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

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.

For whatever reason, they don't want you there.
I'd get on the bike and ride right out of town, never look back. This is
probably a blessing in disguise.

It makes no sense to me. The Harley gang will never go for it. And, if you just want a modest easy to ride cruiser type bike the CTX700 will do perfectly.

These bikes basically don't run on a dead battery. The simplest solution is to charge the battery.
Some have roll started theirs and then kept the RPMs really high to keep everything going.

If your dealer agreed to put a tube in (to the OEM tire of your CBR250R tire) he is a fool and you need a new dealer, among other things.
