Being "bullied" onto a bigger bike

Straight out of the box the D675's geometry gives it razor sharp handling and it's got torque to burn from 3k rpm upwards. The '13+ bikes got an extra 500rpm too before hitting the rev limiter....

Being "bullied" onto a bigger bike

I kept my '12 cbr250r from new. Two years ago I added a '14 Daytona 675 and shortly after a K7 gsxr 600.

Each bike has a different purpose and gets used regularly.

I think Wynne in his earlier...

Sure is interesting times for smaller capacity bikes. I read somewhere that Honda is considering making an entirely new inline four 250cc primarily for the vast Indonesian market.

Took the bike for a spin for the first time in three months to get its annual road worthiness inspection done and then ran a few errands (great excuse for a blast 'cause shifting at 10k+ rpm in...

Is anyone using a 13T front

What RPMs are you shifting? You may not get much if any benefit if you're short-shifting (<5k)

At $25 it's the best bang for buck mod for the bike.

Don't worry about your gonads. It's the head, shoulders, knees i.e the 'permanent' sticky-out bits that will hurt if you bin it.

Fitting a CBR250R engine into a Grom

I didn't call anyone an asshole or douche bag but it seems others on here and in this particular thread think it's okay.

Hmm, who's being unfriendly exactly? What a joke.

Kriega US-20

Last week I ordered the US-20 dry bag and tank straps from Kriega Australia. Will use as a tail bag on the 250r and tank bag on the daytona. Might add 2 x US-10's at some stage.

I kept my 2012 cbr250r after I bought my 2013 Triumph Daytona 675 in March. I ride daily, on weekend outings and track days and use both bikes for every purpose.
