quick question -- the oil drain bolt is 12mm, but do you know the pitch? I'd like to put one of these on if it would work, as it has been extremely helpful on the car:

FUMOTO ENGINEERING: Engine Oil Drain Valve

To me, it looks like some other bits hang lower than the bolt, so clearance might not be an issue.

Good job.
I really wish there was a thumbs up emoticon that I could put here.

A quick search on the web shows 12x1.5. See link here:
BikeMaster Magnetic Aluminum Oil Drain Plug - Street Bike 2012 Honda CBR250R - Motorcycle Superstore

Fumoto F-109 or F-109N should be the part you are looking for. Amazon sells it with free shipping.

Rocket Science-

Buy Genuine Honda Kit ~ $40 from your friendly Honda dealer.


Warm engine to operating temp, so go for a long blast.
Break out that foreign and rarely used object called 'Owners manual ' Page 55.

Remove rhs Fairing & rhs undercowl using 5mm allen key and phillips screwdriver. Page 50/51


Place drain pan under drain bolt,
Remove oil fill cap, drain bolt & sealing washer to drain the oil.
Remove the oil filter cover,spring, oil filter, & gasket.using 8mm socket on the 4 filter cover bolts.


Install new oil filter with 'Outside' facing out.
Install spring into filter cover, then install the new gasket & filter cover & 4 bolts carefully.
Push inwards and line it all up then tighten the cover bolts using 8mm socket on screw handle.
DO NOT use torque wrench like the manual says or you will strip the bolts,
12Nm is about a billion times too much and torque wrenches generally dont go down that low.


Replace sealing washer and oil drain bolt, torque to 24Nm.
Put 1.5l 10w-30 oil in filler with small clean funnel then replace filler cap.
Start engine for one minute.
stop engine & wait 2-3 mins then re-check oil with bike level.
Check for leaks.
Reinstall fairing & undercowl.

I've never seen that Honda Oil Change Kit before.

My shop didn't have 10w-30 cycle oil either.:/

Oh well. They had the parts in stock, so I guess that's good enough.

How much oil exactly does the cbr250r take when you change both oil and oil filter?

I have heard anywhere from 1.5 to 1.8 quarts?

So 1.6 quarts.

$40 is a bunch of money for 2qts of oil, a $5 filter, a $3 gasket and a $.50 washer! I, like the OP, got a gallon of rotella T oil for $13 at walmart and got the filter and other parts at the dealer. Now I have enough oil for 2 changes too. Check out bob is the oil guy and see how many people are running rotella T in bikes with VERY good oil change analysis results and many, many miles on their bikes. And their have also been many tests done on auto oil vs. "motorcycle" oil and they're one in the same. The dealers just tell people they "need" the "special" oil so they can mark up a $3 Qt of oil to $10-15 and make a killing. Anyone who doesn't believe me can go to bob is the oil guy site and do the same research I did before doing my first change. Trust me, I was also scared of running "car" oil in my "bike". lol
