My biggest complaint about the bike, actually my only real complaint is that I just can't gas her up without tiny gas specks all over the tank. Some nozzles are more friendly than others but still impossible not to get any splash back. When I wipe it off I wonder if I am taking the wax off or if I am scratching the tank with paper towels. It looks a little swirly. But, I bought my bike to ride not stare at the tank so not that big of a deal. On a quick unrealated note. Got to take my friends new Griso out for a ride Saturday. All kinds of torque, great handling, ergos almost identical to the cbr250 It was a real blast. Believe it or not I was very happy to get back on my bike. I am convinced it is more fun than anything I have ridden.
