Yoshimura is listing their PIM2 & DATA ox as coming soon for the CBR250R. Now if I do what I consider essential mods, the bike will cost nearly double what I paid. Pipe & fuel mgmnt., race tech susp., fender elim., corbin seat, plus some smaller items. Skip the bling.

The frame is a minimalist work of art from Honda. Tubular steel, butt ugly robotic welds, and it works bitchin. Nothing to change, just keep feasting your eyes on those welds. I would teach those robots some tig welding.

Of the bikes I have owned, the RZ350, and this 250 CBR are my favorites. I have had My CBR for much less time than I owned the RZ, and I like the CBR much better. Right now mine is still stock, about 130 miles. (medical excuse), definately not my plan. I should have miles and mods on it now.

Sucks about the no riding/medical thing. Sorry to hear that. But your right about the RZ. I had a Daytona back in the day. FUN bike.

As for the robot welds.. typical of Honda in the last 10 years. The sloppiest welding this side having a seizure with the TIG. But at least they don't break (well, except for the Goldwing).

It may nearly double the cost of the bike but if you can afford it and it brings you much joy I say "Bring it on!" :)

Bikes are not a financial investment. What you get back from them can not be measured by monetary means. You simply can't put a price on it so do what you love. Make the bike your own.

And when your done....





We want pics! :D

DRC, did you weld the O2 sensor bung for the Bazzaz on the exhaust yourself?

we didnt use the autotune unit with our bazzaz. i did it the old fashioned way on the dyno.

however, our M4 full system includes an 02 sensor port.
