It is a single cylinder 250cc sportbike. It makes you feel like you are on a Moto3 bike. If you get the Repsol it even looks like a race bike. It is fun to pretend.

Lifting the rear wheel IS a stoppie. Doesn't matter if it was intentional or not. My first wheelie was unintentional but spectacular! Now I do them all the time. The one time I tried to do a stoppie...

Anti-Pinch Pin - Big Chains and Tight Spaces (http://securityforbikes.com/anti-pinch-pin.php)

Looks like what you need. It would fit right above the starter motor.

As long as you are aware of the limits that lower pressure impose, you will be ok with the occasional passenger. Just don't do long distance/high speed with a passenger and low pressure. By low, I...

I have owned several cvt scooters. In stop and go inner city traffic they can't be beat. That said, I rarely ride in the city so I'll stick with a manual. Back in the '80s Honda made an auto 450 and...

You want to look cool or be safe? Moto3 has a lot of Repsol sponsored 250s. Some are even Hondas. I just wish they had picked one of them to replicate instead of their production 600.

Not to be pedantic, but sound is a very complex subject. The psychoacoustic measurement of +10 db is considered twice as loud. Just a generally accepted rule of thumb. This does not take into account...

Mine is a photograph of the real thing. The manual has a crappy drawing. Go put a socket on it and rotate it. That's all there is to it. I posted the photo because the drawing was no help.
