    I'm gonna get more and more accessories for the cbr slowly cause I need to look out for people travelling to india from the places where the parts are available. Getting LED indicators from thailand, Next will be rear seat cowl from either thailand or USA. (depends on where friends/cousins are coming from), next would be the alluminium foot pegs, etc etc. One after the other.
    Are you getting it personally from people you know or you getting it imported? I am in desp search of a rear seat cowl. If they dont bring it in India soon, I will go for locally-manufactured-in-India product.

    P.s. Edit:
    Got pictures of the Seat Cowl from another forum.
    Now to try and see if they will bring it here to India or do I need to make a local juggad.
    And guys, did the new owners notice anything like this below the bike, this was raised by a member on another foreign forum. Some pipe lose at the bottom.

      Getting them through a cousin. The rear cowl looks super sool on a the black CBR. I wanted a seat cowl right from the day I booked my cbr. Need to get a source who can get/ship one to india.

      Asked my dealer about the accessories coming to india for cbr 250r and he said they come along with the bike from the factory itself, I was like

      Then later on he added saying, side stand, horn, saree guard all come with the bike, you dont have to buy anything

      LMAO!!!


      And the loose pipe I guess is the air pipe or something. I saw a couple of pipes hanging on all the bikes. I asked the sales guy and he said its the air pipe. Even activa has a similar pipe which keeps hanging all the time.

      Does anybody know how much would a seat cowl cost on an average? Appx price? I checked on ebay and it says " 7000 bucks " + shipping charges to USA. No shipping to india.

        Finally .................! Got my bike @ 2.3p.m from Bhivandi . Bike is awesome rode 20odd kms and never felt its 160kg bike . Few things i noticed about CBR ...

        1> i suspect engine oil is little low then what it should be . ( i chked it 2ice and oil level was low then Mid level)

        2> Noticed little tappet noise while coming back and also Engine heat is noticeable even after 10-14kms ....!
        Its not enough to know how to twist the throttle; you must have judgement to know when and where to do it.

            That pipe is Crank Case Breather Tube. By default it is in closed condition.

                I did not understand the reason for leaving a pipe hanging from the bike. Looks odd.

                @pravu : Congos dude, I hope I get mine atleast by the end of next week.

                  CBR's mileage?

                  Hi mates,
                  Firstly congratulatiosn to you all lucky early owners!!!

                  Have any one of you checked the CBR's mileage? It would be very helpful to would-be buyers like me because I do not get a trustworthy souirce of technical reviews. They are very contrasting from one another and owners should be the best!

                  Autocar India quoted 36kmpl in the busy city streets. ET NOW quoted 25 kmpl in city. What to trust man??

                          Here's a short tutorial on removing the CBR's fairing, which I got from another forum (www.cbr250.org)
                          I have requested the owner to let me put up his tutorial here.

                          Hope it help some ppl initially
                          To Remove Fairing
                          So here's the DIY to remove the fairing. What you'll need is the allen wrench from your toolkit that was provided with your motorcycle.
                          The three bolts that need to be removed are located in the following areas:

                          Here the one behind the indicator:



                          And here's the lower one behind the front wheel.



                          Unscrew all three of them. Notice that the bolt from behind the indicator is different.




                          Now carefully remove the fairing by gently pulling on the the following areas where the clips are located.


                          Once loose, locate the indicator wires and release them from the metal cable tie. Now you have some space to unplug the indicator connectors.



                          With the fairing removed you have now acces to the radiator and engine.

                            Congrats bro for getting the CBR...

                            I am waiting for your review ...

                            Can u confirm a few things :
                            1> Disc brakes on C-ABS and non - ABS are same ?
                            when I visited the showroom, the C-ABS one had nissins on it and non-ABS had Brembo ( not BYBRE as they go in India ) installed.

                            2> Does Brembo imply that they are imported brakes ??

                            3> What are the mileage figures and how does it feel while riding in traffic ? Heavy or not so heavy ????

                            -Thanks in advance and sorry for shooting too many q's ...

                            -Happy Flying

                            -Ankur
                            No, brakes on C-ABS and Non-ABS are not the same. The ABS equipped bikes have NISSIN brakes and Non-ABS has BYBRE. I am not sure how you saw one with BREMBO written on it, might be imported one.

                            I am yet to calculate the mileage. using the full tank to full tank method so waiting to rack up some miles before refilling to get a worthy figure.

                            As far as riding in the traffic is concerned it is not at all heavy. You dont at all feel like you are riding 160+ kg bike. Feels much lighter than the Ninja.
                            It is a pure bliss riding in the traffic. An awesome daily commute bike.

                              My dazzler has 3 pipes hanging down the engine and is the same with Karizma, and in fact most of the bikes. Its not odd at all and they have an important purpose.

                                Well,
                                Asking this question now is too early I guess.
                                Honda had claimed a whooping figure of 50 kmpl somewhere.
                                I am sure it is too much to expect but I guess one will get average of around 35 kmpl if ridden sanely (considering PGM-Fi).
                                I read a guy who rode this bike to extremes got average of 29 kmpl which is decent in my opinion.

                                Edit:
                                Below link kept my mouth wide open for some time.

                                You have heard it right about 5 years cover.
                                Not sure about cashless rind.
                                I did inquire in a showroom in Navi Mumbai.

                                These are breather pipes.
                                One for battery - If chemical inside battery overflows, it is drained out from this pipe rather than it burning plastic around battery.
                                Another pipe is for carburetors. If somebody leaves fuel knob to ON for long time, it might happen that petrol gets accumulated in carburetor. This chokes it up and results in bike refusing to start in single crank/kick. The other pipe helps to drain out this extra fuel out of carburetor.

                                Correct me if I am wrong here.

                                It often takes a humiliating overtake to understand that an early jump off the red light won't help them lead the pact. All I want to say is - Go after green.
