Honda has pretty much stopped the 600 mile valve clearance. My dealer told me from the start that the valves would be fine and not to waste money on an unnecessary inspection. I agree.

I would say the stock tires are part of your problem. I switched to Pirelli Diablo Rosso II
tires and the bike feels much better. However, all tires need to be broken in (de-glazed) and warm to have...

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.

When you turn the key to on, does the headlight come on as it normally should?
If so, is it bright, does it go dim and then go off, or does it stay bright and suddenly go off?

ND?
Good for you. The CBR250R is a sweet bike.
Take your time. Break it in, and then ride it to your heart's content.
It won't disappoint you unless you have unreasonable expectations.

I agree with MM 100%. Use a good (great) oil (like Shell Rotella T), change it often, and you won't live long enough to wear the engine out.
Unless you abuse it, in which case no oil will help.

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.

What is the matte paint, and is it smooth or porous?
My real question is will it wash off easily, and will it be wax-able, or no?
And, yes it does look great.
Thanks

There is nothing quite as nice as buying a brand new, never ridden motorcycle.
And, if you feel like I do, the 2012 is much better looking due to the silver wheels.
That alone would sell me. A...

Why would you want the cap to touch or rub on the paint?
If you push the cap down after filling and you hear it "click", or seat,
and the key goes back to the pull out position, it is fine.
