    The fan will kick in after the temperature indicator reaches 3 bars, and it also depends on the ambient temperature. It will be more audible when your stationary, that should be easy enough to confirm it.

    And as asasinationsinc suggested check the front disc too, it might also be an source of the sound.

      The engine does not Overheat; however, the fan kicks in a lot.

Inspite of that the engine is not overheating. I just make sure there is not dirt, mud clogging the fins. Rest the fan and coolant do their job well.

      I shall post the pictures in a while. There is no mud/ dirt clogging the fins.

      I was passing the service center and asked the price of the Radiator, It costs 5K in Pune.

      Attaching a couple of pictures from my Sunday ride to Mahabaleshwar.

      The bike is absolutely brilliant on the ghats.!

      • Help re. buying a used CBR250R

        Hi guys. I have been looking to buy a motorcycle in the 80k-1L rupees range and i came across a few online ads for used CBR250Rs (2011 or 2012 models). The owners are asking for about 80k-90k, and the examples i shortlisted have done about 10000-12000 km. I need help regarding the checks to be performed on these bikes. Also, is it advisable to go for one at all or should i be looking at a new 200NS or something?

          Hi Mysterious Stranger, congratulation for your new quarter liter bike. so finally you approached Chandra Honda and got the baby cheer isn't? Regarding the noise I hope it will vanish after first service. How about the vibrations and performance?

            for 10000-12000 kms cbr engine is basically new.. its a bullet proof engine if maintained even decently....
            80-90k seems to be decent price.. and is one heck of a tourer....

            12000 km means .. ideally first 3 free services. if you decide on any given bike juast ask owner where the bike was serviced and go to SVC and check the service history.
            virtually 12k done bike for 80-90k is a good deal unles sits abused. just make sure in owners manual that service was done as per schedule.

            around 16-17k you will be replacing chainset (2200)
            around 18k you will be replacing tyres ( 5k-11k) your choice.
            around 25k shim replacement ( 1500 give or take)
            if ABS brake pads at 12-15k ( 3k) non abs every 6k ( 1800 both)
            around 15k ( brake fluid replacement) 300-400
            around 20k coneset replacement ( 1700)

            prices inclusive of labour . can be lesser if work clubbed together...


            that should be it.. just check for any unusual engine noise.
            any electrical issues if any ( expensive parts)
            no mods done... else warranty gone...
            check rims for any signs of damage/bent etc....

              Hi Karthick, thanks mate. Yes it's Chandra honda, like I said in the message they had Sunbeam white so immediately booked it. Thanks for the info again. Hope it vanishes as you said. I Don't want to hear it 😞 do you have the same issue. as far as vibrations I didn't feel any.. Didn't push it too hard touched 85. Just getting used to the frequent downshifts. How about your baby dude.

                  ya my baby cheer is doing well and it is fascinating me every time I ride. Regarding the noise so far I haven't faced anything like that. so far I never crossed 75 dude. Day before yesterday I took my CBR for first service and delivered by yesterday evening. The vibrations got reduced after the service. Have you done your first service if so please update the status, performance and overall service ability by Chandra Honda. The service done by Aadi Honda was unsatisfied.

                  Do you have any plan for long ride on end of December 2014 probably after Xmas. if so please let me know because I planned to go 2 days ride, I have chosen Coimbatore-Guruvayoor-Thrissur-Aathrapalli Falls - Palakad - Coimbatore. if you are willing you can join with me.

                        Good to hear that vibrations have gone down. At what interval did you have it for service. I mean the km. i am getting the bike to banglore and so will be servicing here itself.
                        chandra honda response is quite poor, I wasn't there but my brother took it to them to mention the noise issue while registration they didn't care to look at it simply said that it would be there and we can rectify it in first service. Not sure about their service

                              HMSI seems to be sending low quality replacement parts.

                              The headlamp switch went bad and I came to get a replacement switch (under warranty). I found out that quality of both switch assembly differs greatly.

                              The replacement part is low quality.

                              Wondering, if that's common practice by HMSI and it's service dealership?

                              Is it an isolated case? I expect same quality genuine part, I hope I am not wrong by doing that.

                              Please share your views.
