    Well, may be I can put up on Rx, but again, there're Gurus of Rx experts here & I'm only a kindergarten kid on that too. Ninja, Duke are all way out of my league, I've no experience on them. So whatever I say on it will only be based on hear say & ownership experience here. May be I can do that someday.

    • Just a query! Been using Nitrogen in Tyres for a while! There is like a 3 to 5 ps drop between each fill! Say 7-9 days! Commute regularly on semi bad roads. Is this drop okay ? Even considering Nitrogen ? Which they say last for a month and stuff!

                Reply To Dr.CBR AKA Argee....

                I really impressed the way you encountered to all the queries of CBR... But I just wanted to ask you one thing, who will love to see their new bike being sent to ASC for tight/adjust shims, tappet noise reduction, rusting of parts and like these engine related issues and get the new bike filled with black grease even before six months of use? These all things have to be checked well before the product launch, not after receiving user reviews...and though its counted in the premium segment, not in the ordinary one. We dont expect it from HONDA who makes world class machines.
                And in added to that they've appointed all the dumb service guys all over the ASC centers who don't even know how a perfect vehicle runs... They always say that all stock bikes have the same issue what your bike is. It's a default fault.... I really thought banging my head on my bike in front of them.... Very few ASC are serious about customer care .... It's a headache rather than the quality ....

                HONDA - I enjoy headache .....

                  Yes, by the time I take the bike next day it should drop to 2-3 Psi

                  But, you may want to probably re-read it my friend; but again, if one (not directed to you personally) is not willing to change their perception, then, no matter how much ever facts are put up, nothing will work!!! And most importantly...PAST IS GONE...not point fretting over it.

                  That's the key, you still enjoy Anyway, pointing fingers at CBR 250R is nothing new here ; there're quite a few (actually lot) things that I, (me personally, not other CBR 250R owners) can point out bigger issues than these on products that are matured over time, expensive & cheaper than CBR (considering the fact CBR 250R is a brand new product), but then, that's not we're here for isn't it ?

                  PS - Pls do not insult CBR by calling me Dr.CBR ; I'm serious guys, I really don't know much about the bike, all I know is to ride.

                    Indeed its a very good tyre ... I find it VFM ! for Rs 2600 and NOPE i did not try any burn outs ... its just that my place is is near one of the metro projects in Chennai ... so you can see the amount of dust !

                      Giri .. Check you rims .. its possible even if there is any dust forms over there ... Checking you rims is simple .. go to any reputed tyre shop ... remove the the tyre from the alloys .. and tell them to clean the alloys and the tyre with soap oil ... and tell them to put it back ...

                            - Puncture in the tread
                            - Check & recheck the tire for any nails
                            - Leaks through valve - Faulty valve
                            - Check the edges of the valve & immerse the valve completely in water & move in all directions

                                The closer the point (At 11348) is towards the other end (not the At 109xx end), its time to replace the pads. If you feel the braking is poor, the pads just needs cleaning.
