    The service center guys ain't ready to do any mod from a stock bike.
    If your bike is in warranty, then wait till it gets over before doing the Earth Wire mod.
    If you are a DIY person with enough Knowledge it is easily do able , if not get professional help.
    Yes you have to remove the side fairing to do it.
    Please see Shiv18's detailed photos and account of how he did it to get an idea.
    Good Luck.

    Thank you sir. I've been a DIY guy for my other naked bikes of smaller capacity, but never opened a fairing for myself . Bike's not under warranty. It's expired a few days before.
    I've been going through Shiv18's posts and of them I felt the need for earth wire mod and rimula treatment. It's easy for me to do the wiring part, except for opening the fairing. As it's a weekend I'll try to find a mechanic and get it done. If I'll not be able to find any one, I'll probably try to do the opening part myself and get back to you for any doubts regarding the tools required to open the left fairing and if they're readily available in our tool kit.
    Thank you so much @shiv18 for providing us such a useful Bible for our Cbr and @psr for helping him do it all and shine it over here for fellow riders.

    Try to find a capable local mech if your ASC mech is refusing to help you out in this. Have a look at how he opens the fairing and you will understand. Else you can YouTube on how to open the side fairings and then continue with your process.

    Cheers

    I've got it done by myself just now, with an electrician's help who does wiring for bikes.
    I feel a mild improvement in acceleration and smoothness.
    I've opened the left side fairing myself . I took the help of the mechanic to select the tools( long T handle spanner, Allen key). Got the 10 square mm Copper wire of approximately 1/2 metre connected between negative terminal and Rectifier. Haven't tried longer distances and only in B2B traffic. Thank you so much for your inputs @psr, @Ave2592 and @shiv18.

    I am Happy to note you had done the DIY Earth mod, and on a new bike were able to feel a difference. The mod is mainly for people experiencing lackluster performance and bike idling and running problems. Usually CBRs which are near a coast or humid conditions, invariabley goes through this problem after some time, and the mod is a permanent fix for the Earth wire developing loose contact.

    Thanks Should go to Shiv18, and the many contributors to this thread for making it very useful to the CBR250 bike owners.

    Good Luck.
    Ride Safe.
