    @aargee

    The paint quality i saw on silencer cover was not fault of dealer, paint was pealing off, i think this is due to bad paint job.
    Some questions


    @all
    Q1.
    I would like to know what minimum rpm i should maintain in 1,2,3 gear in order to avoid knocking i have read the post 7600 but still confused, i have been riding TB ever since i am riding bikes. I fell engine over revving past 3000 rp in ist gear 3500 in 2nd. I have no experience of high revving bikes please help. When i am in traffic i use 2nd gear at 3500 rpm nut i feel engine over revving, then i put 3rd i feel slight knocking
    Help please, someone kindly guide me.

    Q2.
    I have got bullet cover and it is not fitting CBR properly, tail area is completely naked, i bought it for Rs 180 (i could not find it anywhere except this one), should i buy from RE agency? will it be able to cover complete bike?

    Q3.
    This one is quite subjective
    I am thinking of putting white radium rim tapes (Red CBR), i have seen red tapes but didn't find them appealing. What you guys think of my idea?


    Hear in yamunanagar saw one red CBR with white rear of tri color cbr, and rest silver parts painted in same white color, it was looking awesome, will try to capture some pics whenever i see him next. (i see him very frequently)

    Nice click.. I like the Carbon Fiber Finish on the Exhaust. Where did you get it done in Bangalore? How much did it cost? Can you share more details please?

    Where is this place where you have taken the pics?

    Time to update that post I guess

    There's no big difference; thumper might've stroked for 80-90mm while CBR is about 55mm which is a short stroke indeed compared to thumper. But that's more torqy still & you'll have to open up a little more. Sudden acceleration is different from opening your throttle gradually.

    Remember the thumb rule - NEVER ever KNOCK even if you'd to redline the engine.

    Thank you sir

    One more thing, whenever i am in 1st 2d or 3rd gear while releasing the throttle i feel a jerk, it feels like up down up down i hope you can understand what i am trying to say, is it normal, is it safe for bike (this happens only at slow speeds when slight twist or throttle is required)

    ^^^ Will include that point as well; but that's something to be controlled at the wrist of rider than the bike itself.

    @samarth14feb - Awesome post; Thank you from bottom of my heart; I'm sure it WILL help several members

    FAQ For New CBR250R Owners - Part 2

    Q. I'm in the process of changing my rear/front tire; can you lend some education please?
    A. The front tire size is 110/70R17 & the rear is 140/70R17. One strong word of advice is...DO NOT change from the stock size for engineering reasons. Currently the tires are supplied by the following manufacturers...
    Continental (Conti-Go), Dunlop (Dunlop) & MRF (ZapperQ)

    (Thanks srivaatsav)
    Chennai Mar 2012
    Conti -- Rs 3350 + fitting charges (Singhvi tyres)

    Conti -- Rs 2900 + free fittings (Apollo Zone)
    Dunlop -- Rs 2700 + free fittings (Apollo Zone)
    MRF(140/70 R17, ZapperQ) -- Rs 3300 + free fittings (Apollo Zone)

    Conti -- Rs 2700 + free fittings (BM LAL)
    Dunlop -- Rs 2600 + free fittings (BM LAL)

    Conti -- Rs 3930 + free fitting (XL Tire Point [Stay off from this day robbers])

    (Thanks appugodara)
    Barmer, Rajasthan
    Dunlop -- Rs.3100

    (Thanks Rahul Rods Tewathia)
    Delhi May 2012
    Conti -- Rs 2300 (karol bagh; shop name not available)
    PSD -- Cost Rs 4200 and after taking my conti go in 700 rs it will cost me 3500 rs

    (Thanks MAVERICK)
    PUNE May 2012
    ContiGo & Dunlop -- Rs.2900 with fittings (Lucky's Tyre Stop - Pune) (Updated May 2012)

    (Thanks Metal_Maniac)
    Mumbai - May 2012
    Contigo -- Rs 2400 (Mira road- Baba tyres, Perfect Associates)
    Dunlop Tuff grip -- Rs 2700 (Mira road- Baba tyres, Perfect Associates)
    Dunlop Tuff grip -- Rs 2900 (AH helmets, Andheri [was 2750 about two weeks ago])
    PSD -- Rs 3.5K to 4k but very few stock it now due to warranty and ISI issue (AH helmet can source it and stocked the PSD front)
    MRF Zapper Q -- Around Rs 3.5K-4K; very rarely available

    Q. So should I buy a Dunlop, Pirelli, MRF or Conti?
    A. Several members have reported bad experience with Conti & most of them have good opinion about Dunlop; If you can find Pirelli & afford for it, go for it, otherwise Dunlop. None of us have experienced with MRF

    Q. The manual says to do a wheel balancing during every service, but I don't have one in my locality. What're the consequences?
    A. Practically there isn't any issues reported so far reported due to lack of wheel balancing with every service. But it is best to get it done for the very fact for smooth rides.

    Q. How to identify the wear & tear on the brake pads?
    A. This pic explains it all


    Q. Is it possible to fit K&N, remapped ECU, full system exhaust or slip ons?
    A. Akro, Yoshi, TB or LeoVi...just remember, per law, the exhaust note should be less than 91db; see the stupidity of the law here - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/221...mbai-cops.html

    Now that said, you could use a DB killer & go unnoticed, but the flip side is, its as good as stock

    Now the other way is, get a static PC or piggy backs with stock exhaust to boost the power; or get a programmable one, replacement ECU & then a full blown exhaust system, now that's what I call kicking someone's ass . It also has a flip side... exorbitant cost.

    Oh!!! and again, no matter what slip on you use, the BHP increase is going to be...just 1%, which is from 25 to 25.2 Bhp

    Now all the above products are reliable, made by team of people who carry out R&D methodically over years with proven record over time...consistently; you can certainly see a bump in the performance on a dyno. But again, don't expect the bhp to flip from 25 to 52; the best you can expect a boost of 20-25% which is 30-32 Bhp & a top speed probably of 175 Kmph on speedo. If you look at the cost, you might as well ask...is it worthy?

    Note - Pls go through this post before thinking about K&N - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/721093-post.html (Thanks PSR Ji)

    Though on a different motorcycle, see the experience of another member here - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/813560-post.html (Thanks ROCKRZ). It doesn't mean every motorcycle that has K&N treatment is bound to suffer, but, just a warning as what you can ALSO expect on the flipside.

    Q. I want to buy a radiator guard & its too expensive; pls show me how to make a DIY on radiator?
    A. Pls see this post - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/do-yours...tml#post802983 (Thanks samarth14feb)

    Q. Can any one tell me how to trace the manufacturing year of CBR through chassis or engine number
    A. Try the following for now, it might work as we're expecting collective feedback for confirmation
    1. Locate the frame number of your vehicle; it's written on your RC book or paper (18 digits).
    2. Note down the 9th & 10th character (both HAVE to be alphabets only & not any number) & decipher as follows...

    9th character - A - January, B - February, C - March...M - December
    10th character - A - 2010, B - 2011, C - 2012, D - 2013

    Mine was FB, indicating June 2011, which is also right

    Q. Where can I get tank pads in my city
    A. Please check with friends/shops around your locality; however, good, quality tank pads are available from...
    PlanetDSG : Motorcycle Riding Gear, Accessories, Apparel and..
    Performance Racing Store

    Place an order online & get them shipped to your door steps

    Q. What is the best FE I can expect from my bike? And how do I obtain it?
    A. Pls see this post - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/807684-post.html (Thanks sayhi2sai)

    Q. With the fuel bars on the meter console, I'm unable to determine my range; can you show me a traditional method using ODO?
    A. These are some of the observations for over 22K on ODO
    - The best FE is obtained when ridden around 80 Kmph; We got about 46 Kmpl
    - It also matters how soon you get to 80 Kmph, do it gradually for maximum FE
    - Never trust the FE bars on the meter console. They're mere trick

    Here's how the fuel vanishes when ridden in excessive of 140 Kmph
    6th bar disappears around 24 Km
    5th bar disappears around 72 Km
    4th bar disappears around 165 Km
    3rd bar disappears around 202 Km
    Didn't take a note beyond this

    Here's how the fuel vanishes when ridden between 96 Kmph-120 Kmph
    6th bar disappears around 28 Km
    5th bar disappears around 80 Km
    4th bar disappears around 178 Km
    3rd bar disappears around 223 Km
    2nd bar disappears around 240 Km
    Starts blinking around 264 Km

    Here's how the fuel vanishes when ridden around 80 Kmph
    6th bar disappears around 31 Km
    5th bar disappears around 115 Km
    4th bar disappears around 215 Km
    3rd bar disappears around 345 Km
    Didn't take a note beyond this
    Note - The above is only a guideline observed on 2 CBR's (the one on 80 Kmph) & all other's are on personal observation. Though efforts has been taken to provide accurate figures, please use that as guidelines rather than depending on it completely.

    Q. I've an ABS version of CBR, how can I improve my braking?
    A. Pls see this post - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/807471-post.html (Thanks sayhi2sai)

    Q. Awesome, so can I use the ABS disc pads on my STD version of CBR?
    A. Not possible; the ABS caliper kit is supplied by Nissin that has 3 pistons while the STD is made by Brembo (outside India)/Bybre (in India) that has only 2 pistons. So the brake pads are completely different & its not possible to retro fit

    Q. Is it possible to retrofit the Nissin caliper kit from the C-ABS? I'm not too keen on the ABS, but for the 3-pot calliper?
    A. Again, these kind of juggad work is not encouraged for the very reason, they might void warranty. In addition...
    1. The draw back is that, there's an additional hose to the 3rd piston on the Nissin which cannot be tweaked on STD. However, the 3rd piston will still get an action from the other hoses as there's an additional exit for the excess oil to flow back to a reservoir & back to master cylinder (ABS mechanism)
    2. This will yield in 3 piston getting engaged a little, however, the pistons will be unable to get back to their original position causing...JAM

    Q. How can I improve my braking on STD version?
    A. Use engine braking combined with regular braking for improved braking on STD version.

    Q. I see a small screw that seems to adjust the plate where the throttle cable ends; would that help me to adjust the idle RPM?
    (Thanks samarth14feb)
    A. One word - "STAY OFF" or "AT YOUR RISK"; this topic has been discussed; here're some advice as why it should not be touched
    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/805000-post.html (Thanks samarth14feb)
    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/804966-post.html (Thanks ashwinprakas)
    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/805048-post.html (Thanks ashwinprakas)
    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/805237-post.html (Thanks PSR Ji)

    Q. Can I change the settings of the rear suspension? How do I do it? Will it void the warranty?
    A. No it will not void the warranty even if you change the setting; 1 represents the softest setting & 5 represents the hardest. Use the "C" kind of clamp provided in your tool kit & turn it anti clockwise for softer & clock wise for hardest setting. Do it from the left side (gear shift side) for a little easier effort

    Q. What's the top speed in every gear?
    A. **When the rev limiter cuts off, these are the observation on the speedo...
    1 - 50 Kmph
    2 - 79 Kmph
    3 - 106 Kmph
    4 - 127 Kmph*
    5 - 142 Kmph
    6 - Variable
    * Still in the process of noting accurately
    **That said, this is an observation tested on one CBR STD on road that appears to be even

    Q. How do I check the oil level on my engine?
    A. Refer to Page 25 of Owner's manual that says to mount the motorcycle on a paddock (straight/upright position) & then inspect the glass window located below the engine (clutch cover casing)

    Q. Pls post the prices of some spares?
    A. Disclaimer - The listed below prices are without taxes & rounded off to approximate only
    Small 7mm rivets - 10.70
    Cowl, R, front side - 340
    Front fenner - 512
