Well this is 2019 and I guess I am the only guy to still be racing a CBR250R. I am in New Mexico and race with SMRI who's series starts in May. ASMA has already started and I will miss the first two events but will be ready for the one in May also. Because everybody has gone to a 300 class I did install the 305cc kit and done a bunch of other things. Bike is now 311 lbs. Still don't know how Ari got his 2011 down to 295 lbs.
