I have a recently purchased CBR250 that came with an extra exhaust by NJT Racing whose label says "not for highway use". Can anyone tell me why - presumably noise and/or heat related? The stock exhaust has a protective cover, presumably to protect the passenger's leg but the racing exhaust does not? I do not race and am not one that wants everyone in the area to know me by the annoying, high decibel noise generated by my bike (I live in Chiang Mai, Thailand) but do like the look of the stainless steel exhaust which is well crafted. Best advice please - install or sell the exhaust?
There are a few things I am not fond of on the bike, one being the total lack of storage. I checked with a Honda dealer and there are no such accessories by Honda for the bike. I want to carry for aways of a week or two, so a backpack only is not sufficient. Nor do I want anything that makes mounting/dismounting the bike more difficult (ie. swing over of the leg past the seat). Suggestions?
Last points are the absence of a good place to lock my helmet - I recently had a brand new one stolen off my 125cc scooter while parked at a Wat.
And the best way to lock up the bike for a day or two?
Oh, and I want to redo the seat which is very uncomfortable for long rides - is there an after market seat available in Thailand, or is custom the way to go? For custom, does anyone have a design that I should consider given my big, farang butt?
