Default Re: Honda CBR 250R Review

The bike had been kept unused for a while now.

So got it serviced from Saphire Honda as it's closest from the place I stay. Here's the bill. Caused much heartburn.

It still has a tingling vibration on the handlebar though, not sure why.

Why a double charge for fork oil

Just a few questions. Why were mechanical components changed since you haven't used the bike. At least from what I reckon, if the vehicle is parked a for quite a while, engine oil and fluid replacement would suffice. Did your bike had stitching noises from the engine, before parking the bike for so long? I mean, valve train noises and fork seal leakage? Any echo the same question why was fork oil billed twice, when the first one was billed as 2 nox.

Cheers!

One of the fork seals had gone bust. Since I had 20w oil put in, and Honda uses only 10w, I asked them to change oil on both the forks. Apparently each fork needs 2 units of fork oil is what he said when I asked the SA. I didn't prod further.

The tappet noise was present earlier because in Kolkata none of the SVCs knew how to check valve clearance (not sure of the present condition of their skills). Plus, the front calliper piston had jammed and a service of the same didn't help. Hence, they had to replace the front calliper assembly.

That is true; 315 or 325 ml IIRC is what is required for each of the sides.
