Superstition won't make you less likely to have an an accident. Making yourself more visible and audible, and riding safely will. ;)

Firstly, hats off to you Sir for surviving 49 years of motorcyling. Much respect.



There is no issue to fix. You're labouring the engine, which won't do it any good, or help your fuel economy,...

You are slackening the axle nut before trying to turn the adjuster nuts, aren't you? ;)

Well, I spoke to the dealership, and they recommended changing the fork oil every 3 - 4 years on a road bike but did say that many people don't bother, and as long as it felt OK, not to worry about...

Welcome aboard Matey. ;)

Your exhaust is possibly a Delkevic. As long as it's got a BS or EU stamp on it, and it's not had the baffles removed, it's legal. Surprisingly, there is no noise level...

I'll second that. I had a couple of non o-ring chains on my bike. One lasted for 3,000 miles the other 4,000. They may be very cheap, but will cost you a lot in the hassle department. As Mike said,...

I'd rather pay someone else to do it, as I don't have the time or the inclination (or a garage) to tackle a job like the steering head bearings. I use a dealership that has a really good mechanic,...

TBH I've never kept any other bike much longer than a year or so, so I've not had the fork oil changed on any of my previous bikes. A quick Google found a range of recommendations for other bikes...

I think that you'll have problems if you're trying to fit it on to that non-standard 13 tooth front sprocket in the first pic. Should be OK with the 14 tooth sprocket in the second pic though.

I can't think of any reason why that wouldn't work. I would recommend using the double feed though, if possible, to get an equal amount of oil on both sides of the chain.

I've rode through 3 British winters, salt and all, and the only thing that corroded on my bike was the stock exhaust, which I've changed for a stainless steel Delkevic. I think that for the price,...

Don't worry about keeping it clean over winter. My bike gets a good dose of ACF-50 as winter starts, and it doesn't get washed again until spring. It sure is nice to see a nice shiny bike emerge from...

I have no plans to get rid of my CBR250R, but when I finally do, I think I'll be trading it in for a good second hand Honda NT700V Deauville. Very well made, bulletproof and very practical. ;)
