    Does anyone here know the part number of cbr150r front brake pads which fit the front caliper of Cbr250 non abs version? I have to get it changed on my bike. I visited the service centre recently and those guys clearly refuse that there is no exact match of pads for the 150 and 250. I have also heard that there are 2 different designs for pads of the 150 so i would like to know the part number of the pads which fit the 250's non abs caliper.
    Also i was thinking of switching to the tapered roller bearings(SKF probably) for the steering. I would like to know as to where i can procure them as i dont know the exact dimensions and cost. I am residing. in Pune.

    Thank You.
    try these if you can't get the original part. these are also good quality aftermarket pads for the cbr250/cbr150(Abs).. i recently switched to nikavi brake pads on my duke and pretty happy with it so far.

    good thing is they are returnable

    getting the bosch pads is also a choice, but availability might be iffy. i know for a fact that one of our cbr user theironhorse99 ended up getting the rear pad despite ordering a front one from bosch.

    Though I don't have the OE part number handy, I can perhaps give you the part number for Bosch Brake pad set F002H241178F8 Brake Pads for Honda CBR 250 Non-ABS Type (Front). You can perhaps mention this number to your nearest parts stockist, or better if you can remove your pads and take it to your nearest parts supplier and show it to them, I am sure they can help procure one. You have to measure the exact dimensions of the top and lower bearing dia/depth and then measure the bearings yourself to procure one. It is 100% doable, provided the right bearing with the right dimensions are sourced. It's a pretty good way to brain storm and do a DIY.

    Good luck, and I hope I helped somewhat with what I can share.

    Cheers!

    Repair done, brake switch working perfectly, just lil bit of polish and everything back to normal. Im sure their is no need to disassemble switch, WD40, kerosene or any other fuel overnight bath will remove dust and carbon deposition completely.
    Youtube Video attached to understand how it is down. No need of complex soldering process as shown in the video.

    Oh wonderful! I am not sure the front brake switch is repairable. It's a small pin type switch that once goes faulty is faulty, there can be exceptions if it's dust accumulation and a dab fo WD40 brings it back to life, but once faulty, it will eventually give up. I'd recommend a replacement of the switch, if the switch is faulty. Good luck.

    The rear brake bulb is 21/5 watt one. The one that glows normally with headlights is 5w and when you press the brake the 21w lights up. Remove the bulb and you will have two filaments, check if any of the filament is bust, if it is bust, replace the bulb.

    remove the bulb and check, its a dual filament bulb. most likely the filament that lights up when you brake is shot.. with only the other filament working you see it light up when you switch on the lights. start of with a simple bulb replacement.

    Getting wheel balancing helps your wheel be dynamically balanced which helps the wheel weight be equal, you can do it yourself if you know how to do it or if you can't it's recommended to do wheel balancing, there are many simple ways to do it also and you can check it online for tutorials. I'd suggest you get your wheel balanced where you replace your tire, yes they charge approx 500 to 600 rupees for balancing. Little expensive, but goes a long way.

    Absolutely none to worry about. The overall wheel diameter change is not significant enough to cause any trouble to the ABS calibration. In fact the rim size is of 4 inch which can easily accommodate a 150/60 tire.

    Now I don't have to worry for next tyre upgrade. Right now my cbr has Michelin pilot street radial n they're working perfectly fine. Now they have run more than 25k n unfortunately same tyres r not available. So thinking to go for Apollo Alpha H1 but have confusion regarding their size.
    Now I can buy without any worry.

    edit: i just noticed that you mentioned you have already changed to a 'set' of apollo h1's !! do let us know you feedback after 10k km. they are grippy tires but will suffer from the squaring off that i have mentioned.

I just changed to a set of Apollo Alpha H1s and there was no stock size for the rear. Is there anything that I should be mindful of?
