I would be eagerly looking forward for up-dates on this.

The suspension is what is stopping the bike. There is front dive & it isn't as nimble/agile as a Sports Bike should.

Can't the dive be fixed by adding more oil to front forks ? .Make be 30 -40 ml on each side to start with ?

Updates should be quick once the first service is out of the way. I am trying to source the OEM ECU plug so that it's plug-n-play. Autotune should be included.

It will. There is another option of adding stiffer springs. The oil one as suggested by you is hassle free & worth. Though seeing SVC & mechanic's (in) competency don't want to risk it.

Do you really need to swap stiffer springs? Why not just increase the preload on the fronts. The rear is adjustable anyways.

More oil? How does that work?

I would have guessed that some higher viscosity oil would be what was needed?

How to increase the pre-load at front?

Higher viscosity coupled with a bit of overfill.

You would be having quite a few stages of modifications in mind to make the city go quicker than the stock CBR, atleast to a hundred.

Pranav, same question from me , that Rehaan asked. It would have made more sense to buy one of those almost new CBR's than get a new one. Some of those on sale have pretty low running.

But, this is going to be an intresting thread. One quesiton while you do what you have planned - why do you say this will be the World's first CBR250 with a stand alone ECU ?

Thank you. Have a LOT planned for the car. Completion should be in a few months. Some bespoke parts are going on the car, and a lot is coming out of the car too.

Not the world's first CBR250 with a standalone ECU. Or maybe it is. Don't know what international racing teams are up to. But this will be the first specially designed for this bike.

Honestly, seeing the way most people use their cars and bikes, I don't trust people selling anything with a low mileage. If they are disappointed with the performance of the bike, it's pretty obvious they have already abused it and found it lacking.

Hi,
After the CBR250, suggest you take a look at the C5. Throw in a wideband, and watch the stampede to your door!

C5? Not well versed in various bikes, as you can see

^^I think Sutripta is referring to Royal Enfield Classic 500.

Actually Royal Enfields new (UCE) 500 cc engine the Indian version of which has an open loop fuel injection system. The foreign version has a lambda sensor. People here are complaining of unsatisfactory performance.

C5 refers to their C(lassic) 5(00) model, which has this engine.

Ah, a Bullet Classic.

As a recreational purchase, I do not see any value in it because I personally do not have a liking for them. Different strokes for different folks; no offense intended to any Enfield owner and/or fan.

As an investment, I do not have the money sadly. Perhaps if I have time and someone's ready to lend his/her bike as a test mule, I can have a go.
