OGIO Tailbag

I don't use this tailbag anymore. It's a good fit for the CBR. If you look through the forums here you'll see a lot of people use it on this bike. Mine is a little dusty but otherwise in good shape....

I wouldn't worry about the not-starting thing. You can get a decent replacement battery shipped to your door for $25.

If there is a wobble when braking that could be a problem, but as you...

Welcome. I always buy used. If you are patient you can get a nearly new motorcycle for much less $$$.

That CBR125 looks awesome, why did you get rid of it?

After tapping into wires many different ways over the years, I think I like posi-taps the best. But they are expensive. I ordered about $100 worth at once to get a good per-piece price. I got them...

The CBR250 has plenty of extra power to run heated grips. See my video of testing the power output here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G_MrPxkWv0

There's a lot of talk about staying in gear, but I don't know if this rider could have done any better. It's easy to 2nd guess him from here.

The CBR250 runs the turn signals at reduced power to act as running lights. It sounds like you've tapped into that circuit, so when the turn signals are off ("canceled"), your extra lights are still...

You could try touching bare wires to the bulb, then tap the leads for the LED onto that (It's hard, might need to use tape or a helper). That would narrow down the problem to something on the socket...

This doesn't sound right. The LED bulbs have more resistance, that's why they use less power, because less electrons flow through them.

The regular incandescent bulbs have less resistance, that's...

Everything is plug and play if you order all the Honda stuff. You do have to take quite a few body panels off to get to the wring. You are probably looking at something like $350-$450 to get the...

Yes it appears to operate like a normal dual filament bulb. Partial brightness for tail light, and full brightness for brake light.

On most bikes, if you are having a hard time changing gears, move the bike back or forward an inch or two. You can do this with your feet, or sometimes I do it by letting...

If it were me I'd hold out for the color scheme you want, if you really don't like this one. Don't buy something you aren't happy with. Unless like redCBR250r said, it's just a learner bike. In that...

I hate this. A BMW shop will toss you the keys and tell you to have fun, but most Jap bike dealers won't do test rides. It's ridiculous. Who wants to spend $7k on a machine without even trying it...
