As spring is here in NZ and daylight saving hours kick-in shortly I'm giving the forum a break for a few months to concentrate on getting a ton of road and track seat time. I will be also supporting...

250r is a great light touring bike !

Seems a bit unusual to lose a cup (250ml) for such a short distance Harry. I regularly do that distance without any oil loss.

If you're sure the bike is losing oil and there's no sign of leaks...

Absolutely.

Anyone can crack open the throttle but the majority of riders aren't able to stop a bike at its braking limits. If you can't stop a 250 when you need to then more seat time and...

Do you have any idea how you come across?

I learned very quickly after joining this site that Shishosin has much to offer us about perspectives on bikes and in life.

Your last sentence summed it up.

Just think of your controls like this:

Right-side of bike -> throttle/brakes = 'road' speed

Left-side of bike -> gear shifting = 'engine' speed

Glad you...

Buy the helmet which is the best:

1. Quality that you can afford.

2. Fit for you.

Do not buy a helmet without trying it on first.

The last reason you should buy a helmet is for looks.

Perhaps searching on stripped bolts earlier would have avoided stripping the bolt in the first place :rolleyes:

Was it an oil filter bolt that got stripped? If so, I think the DIY Oil Thread has...

No problems in 13,000 miles and two years since leaving the factory.

^ Quite possibly because I used the search function on here regularly :p

Most problems seem to be caused by their owners.

A Fuelly.com call to arms!

It's easy to do even for the technologically challenged like me.

New cbr250r rider - Should I upgrade to 600?

As usual Shish speaks the truth.

But I will add this:

You're only 17.

What not to do on a motorcycle [video]

Didn't watch the video.

Two-piece leathers with chest, back, elbow, shoulder and knee protection every time I ride.

It works for me.

The CBR250R may be done so to speak but I'd take Yamaha's R25 (in its 250cc configuration) over a CBR300R any day of the week.
