Default Re: Honda CBR 250R : Answers to some commonly asked questions

Hello All,
I have a 2012 CBR250R. It has done 53,xxx Km. Recently I gave my bike for a general check up to Karthik at Tansi Honda since I had not been using the bike for close to 5 months. I asked him to check for a noise that was coming from the fuel tank. Since it was a general check up, the engine oil etc. was not replaced.

Before I gave the bike to him, I went on a short ride to Shettihalli and back without any problem. The bike performed flawlessly besides the noise that I complained about. After this check up though, I am facing a peculiar issue. The bike is switching off when I ride it above 8k RPM. It doesn't happen always but it happens 80% of the time. Then I have to turn off the ignition and start the bike again.

When I told this to Karthik, he said it could be an air block somewhere and it will be cleared when I ride. I tried riding it but the problem still persists. While he's the most trustworthy and the best CBR mechanic I have come across, this is the first time something of this sort has happened.

Does anyone have any pointers to diagnose this cut-off issue?

Thank you

From your description, I suspect the intake and fuel. You might get the fuel filter checked for clogging, get the tank cleaned if there's impure fuel. Or, the air filter might be suspect too.

I believe the ECU is cutting off the engine at 8k as a fail safe to avoid engine damage caused by impure fuel. Do keep us posted.

Update:
Karthik resolved the issue and pointed it out to a clogged fuel filter. All the vibrations and rattling noises also have been taken care of. Now the bike is running as good and as smooth as ever. No odd noises or cut offs and its running like new and I am super happy again! Thank you Added_flavor for the pointers.

Hi. I'm planning to pickup a 2nd hand CBR 250r shortly. Looking for any reviews on a good service station to have the bike serviced in Mumbai. All of the google reviews are mixed and mostly horror stories about bad worksmanship.

Any info from CBR 250r owners in Mumbai about this/or some other reliable workshop would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can get in touch with kailashnj (My pre-worshipped Honda CBR250R ABS Repsol Edition). Although he has now moved to Versys650, he would know reliable workshop for CBR250R in mumbai.

I personally use the Pilot Street Radial and it still has plenty of life after I've run it for nearly 20k kilometers. A buddy of mine switched to the Metz Sportec M5 on his CBR250R and he says it's excellent as well.

Hi read the posts multiple times over the last 2 weeks. Very informative aargee 👍

But was wondering what the current preferences are in 2017. Since more Tyre options are available now. Thanks.

There's no change in the bike except for the stickers from 2011; similarly there's no changes with engine oil, tires, lights or anything else including performance boost since 2011. It's a nearly dead motorcycle now!!

He is saying about the availability of tires, with respect to brands and a bit about size. 140 section as well as 150.
Longevity and budget -MRF
Best bet - Michelin and Pirelli
Metzelers - outright grip, tire life not a consideration.

I don't think so! MRF radial lasted for 18K km; to precise 73699 Km to 92285 Km. This was the second highest lasting tire after Dunlop.

Michelin Radial lasted 23K & out of concern due to my high speed riding, I changed after 23K considering I changed at 92285 Km & it lasted till 115787 Km, but still it could've been pushed to some 1-2K more. Needless to say, I always chose Michelin again.

Haven't used Metzelers & Pirelli, so can't really authoritatively comment due to lack of concrete & reliable data.

I gotta agree with aargee. I replaced with Michelins at 14.5k and they're still running strong at 33.5k with at least 5-6k of life left. Plenty of tread in the middle, but I'll replace them the first time they shift while leaning.

Also, these went to the track when my bike was at 22k.
