Hey guys, thanks for the welcome. I just picked up a 2013 CBR 250 Repsol from the original owner with just 650 miles. This is my first CBR, and first Honda. I just retired and wanted to get back on a bike. The bike is bone stock. I'm going to change out the stock exhaust with a Yoshimura 77 slip on muffler. The bike rides and handles great. Only problem I'm having is when it's cold it takes 2 or 3 cranks to start. The previous owner said it is the original battery and he kept it on a trickle charger. Probably could use a new battery. Also original tires with plenty of tread left but they are 7 years old.

Welcome. Older tires are less "grippy", but are adequate for transportation riding.
