Default Re: New addition to my garage, the new CBR250r

A quick question: I am planning this as my first bike. Have been driving cars for last few years in NCR, but bangalore traffic isn't really four-wheel friendly. I can move around on bikes but not very regular, how does CBR feel for new bikers??

Santosh from your experience it does appear that you faced only a slight delay of a few hours while Honda folks got in the spares for you. Pretty sure that this myth of spares unavailability will be a thing of past very soon.

Default So called "Replacment Kits"

Updating after a long time.
Got a call from the dealer last week and was informed that Honda is replacing some parts. So as part of the replacement kit, they replaced around 14 screws and the grab rail. They also checked for a link in the suspension, if found not good would be replaced. They also gave 1 litre of Honda engine oil free.

Default Odo Reading - 7639 Kms

Was feeling the bike had lost power, so got the air filter checked and found it was all black. Got it replaced and could find a huge difference in power now.
Cost of the Air Filter INR 219, labour charges INR 35.

Santosh, since you mentioned replace, i am assuming its a paper filter. I thought the CBR is equipped with a foam filter so its easy to wash and clean and can be reused multiple times. Correct me if i am wrong.

CBR uses paper filter that cannot be reused; air filter has to be replaced everytime

Default Update - Odo reading 8600 Kms

As part of the replacement kit provided by Honda, they had given a litre of engine oil and i had half litre from the previous service left. Got the engine oil changed. Personally felt the engine oil change recommended by honda is too long.
Also bought the following items as part of the touring plan.
1. Campbell Hausfeld 12 Volt Inflator and Working Light
2. Universal Hardwire Cable with Lighter Socket and Power Switch for GPS & Cellular Phone

Connected the Lighter socket and check the inflator, works excellent. The pump has a inbuilt cut off when the desired psi is reached.

Upgraded the gloves from DSG Moto Mesh to DSG Revive.

Default Re: New addition to my garage, the new CBR250r

Santosh,
What is the engine oil replacement schedule as per Honda? Thought its advisable to have it changed once in 3000 Kms for smaller displacement engines...
Hope you are carrying the inflator kit for the team bhp meet...

Saw the inflator at Santosh's place last week. Hardly weighs much, pretty light to carry around and very robustly built. Does not feel like cheap plastic/doesn't feel delicately built, so makes for a good buy. And for $22 its a steal.

On my wishlist too.

Default Update - Odo reading 8825 Kms

One of the long pending upgrade was fulfilled today. Upgraded the stock bulb to philips extreme vision.

Going back 2 months ago, when i rode to Horsley Hills, AP, during return journey, it was evening and found the stock bulb was not sufficient at all. So decided to upgrade it to Philips xtreme vision. Costed INR 500. Makes a huge difference from the stock bulb.

Did you also change the pilot lamps - as some "enthusiastic" friends from the CBR club have done?

I need to change the headlamp bulb too. Will try and buy it this weekend.
