I changed the sprockets on my Ninja250R and it made for a much taller and more usable 1st gear, but I don't think the CBR needs it. The stock gearing is the best I've seen on any 250. I'm taking a "if it works, don't mess with it" approach to my CBR compared to going crazy with mods like I did with the Ninja. The CBR is as close to perfect as I've seen in a 250cc street bike in many respects. It doesn't cry out for mods as urgently as my Ninja did.
