New cbr250r-standard(no abs)-owner,india,kerala--(29/1/2011)

BOUGHT MA CBR-250R BABY FIREBLADE (INDIA,KERALA,PALAKKAD)
RED-STD VERSION

my features
height-170cms
weight-95kg


I FACED LOT OF GUYS WHO TOLD THE BIKE WAS VERY BAD QUALITY AND RATTLING IS PRONE...EVENTHOUGH MA FRIENDS AND DAD'S FRNDS AND RELATIVES(lucky for me...none opposed/knew i was buying the ride)
so all AGAINST--theories came after bike was delivered to ma home

followed burn in...using normal method
4-4.5k rpm---300kms
5krpm--------500kms
5.5krpm------650kms
6-7k rpm-----after 1st service( had to keep bike in home as we had our study tour...so 30 days/1000km came into play
gave for service at 650kms

i experienced problems
1.gear struck when engine is off..can only shift up and cant down shift to 1st
without moving vehicle forward/racing engine a bit(giving throttle) in neutral
2.uneven idiling after short trips(not experienced after a long drive)
3.loose throttle(uneven acceleration...as we cant control it precisely)
4.clutch control problems
5.brake shitty noise...(skweeeek.....while braking)
6.thudding sound while downshifting to 1st gear/2nd from higher gears
7.engine death at cold start


so i thought
"hell....those guys were right and i am in deep misery now,spending 1.6 lakh indian rupee"


1.after service,when i touched ma bike throttle,i felt it rock hard
sooooo responsive that i flied 90kmph at 3rd gear
2.gear jam issue was solved...now can shift to any gear in stop position
(was told someone must have tried pulling the bike down or up while gear engaged,not using clutch....it might occur as bike is left without anyone near for 6-7 hours,while i am at clg...just a simple tweak...the mechanic said)
3.clutch adjusted
4.brakepad cleaned noise dissappeared
5.engine rpm idiling corrected to 1500rpm
6.cold start death corrected
7.chain cleaned and lubed(had to pay 150 extra...readily gave when i saw chain wid all the mud and goo like old lube)

total service charge(free service-1)--860rs(india),approx 17-20$(usa)


but my bike is soooooo smoooth....and i m loving it
better acceleration and pickup...exhaust sound also changed a bit(nicer side)
thanx to HONDA SERVICE CENTER GUYS(PALAKKAD,KERALA,INDIA)


now i love ma bike and those who opposed my decision to take the bike are slapped on the face now.....

thanks
regards

Shows what simple maintenance can do, (and its all in the manual), however the indian bikes seem a bit different.

Welcome.

*ps - its not a babyblade.. they stopped building them in 1999.
